OH MY GOD, went into town this morning with straight hair and back home with curly hair, if it doesn’t stop raining, I am going to go completely nuts. To make matters worse, I have naturally curly hair and I go to great lengths to straighten it and dumbo here went and got a fringe, so every morning I wake up looking like Elvis. Did you know, its not even called SUMMER any more its more like summer/winter/autumn/spring and all in one bloody day, just waiting for the snow, like the icing on the cake.
Its that time of the year again to start putting away the sandals (you never got to wear anyway) and get the boots out. I do love this time of year, I love to get out all my cosy throws and snuggle up in them in front of the fire. As you know I love my bed, with the dark evenings coming in, I dress my bed with warm colours, cosy but bright. I am not one of those people that as soon as winter comes, dress in black, I like colours and besides you feel better wearing colour.
Keep your bed clothes bright on those dark cold nights, soft warm colours are great for relaxing in.
Garrendenny Lane in Carlow, Co loais have a beautiful selection of bright bedclothes by Designers Guild, (check out the online shop, they deliver all over Ireland).

If you are feeling a bit adventurous, like me you could always make your own duvet cover. I sometimes come across materials that I would love for my bed, so I take matters into my own hands and make it myself, it is very easy, you’d be amazed what you can achieve with a simple sewing machine.
Would you believe, I lit my stove last night, I called round to the village and bought my first bag of turf for the winter, I love, love, love the smell of turf burning. Last year I even got a free mouse in the bag with the turf, so kind. (Information on turf).
Turf being cut.
Go on yeah boyo.
Oh and one last thing, now that the nights are closing in and the lighting and heating will be on much more ,I think I will take Lucy Kennedy’s advice and make the BIG SWITCH to Bord Gais.
