A Wedding Full of Memories

I’m back at uni for the final time this academic year to collect my results (I passed with a high 2.1 which I am both amazed and relieved with!) and to pack up the rest of my room. This means I’ve finally got some time and some peace and quiet without distractions to right a …

Rachel’s Birthday

Wednesday was Rachel’s 22nd birthday and naturally I kept my day free to celebrate in true Murphy style. Then she told me she was going shopping in Stratford and I ran in the opposite direction. It’s not that I wouldn’t have enjoyed myself, but I’d spent all of Tuesday (along with Rachel and Padraig) coaching …

The Thing About A Hangover

I’m just finishing my first year of university and, as you can imagine, this means some pretty big celebrations. Or rather, consumption of a huge amount of alcohol on empty stomachs leading you to forget the ‘best night ever’ that sums up the last 8 months of your life spent with people you won’t be …

Wii Arm

I like games. It doesn’t matter if they’re electronic games, board games or just plain old tag, if a game is being played in my house, you can be pretty sure that it was me who begged and whined until someone gave up and played with me suggested it. When we were younger, we had a …

Anna and Leon’s Wedding

On Saturday, Rachel was bridesmaid to her friend, Anna’s, wedding. My mum and I were invited to the evening reception and Rachel took some really good photos, so this post is mostly through her eyes but there were so many good ideas throughout that I thought I’d show you anyway. All the bridesmaids, and especially …
