These are the things one does when  #hurricaneophelia  requests that we all stay at home. Sending good vibes and my thoughts to all those affected by the hurricane in a tragic way today.

    2 days ago by traceysblog Carrots are  #orange  right? To be fair, I also ate a tonne of actual oranges at Slimming World Head Office this weekend. Just landed and will be glad to get home and see my boys. I'm not a great flyer. Not awful. But hurricane had me more nervous than usual flying. Have to say, there's something profoundly lovely about the Irish guards at passport control saying "thanks Tracey". I LOVE that they say your name.  @theclothesline .ie let's hope my contributions to  #magicofoctober  can only improve

I don't honestly know. One of them. Sure they'll tell us soon I'm sure. No parks, running or getting it wet so its going to be an interesting few weeks. I anticipate more of this stuff. We dumped the arts and crafts bag on the floor and he was interested for about 2.5 minutes. But don't we look crafty all the same?  @theclothesline .ie photo challenge day 11.  #magicofoctober
