  • The happiness this plate of food brought me just now
    2 years ago by traceysblog The happiness this plate of food brought me just now is off the charts. I needed that Oh I'm knackered and drained this week lads. No two ways about it. I've had a lot of work on this week and I feel like I've been driving most of the days then staying up late working and struggling to switch off. Just one of those weeks and being self employed brings me so much to be grateful for. About to sit down for an hour with a cuppa and mindlessly scroll through social media. The work and house stuff can wait

    2 years ago by traceysblog Thanks for having us today  @cadburyireland  The  #cadburysecretsanta  pop up shop is at 57 South William Street in Dublin until Saturday. It's completely FREE and really worth a visit. The experience involves creating your own selection box (with 6 full size bars) a  @cadburyireland  hot chocolate, a really funny post master, singing elves and then writing a letter and addressing your secret Santa who will receive the letter and a bar or dairy milk in the post from you. It's all free and you can give a donation to  @awareireland  if you wish. It would be a lovely way to

    2 years ago by traceysblog What a dinner. And it didn't take long to make at all. I sauteed an onion with two crushed cloves of garlic, a diced carrot and a courgette chopped up. I added a teaspoon of dried basil, a teaspoon of garlic granules and the juice of half a lime. I then added a few handfuls of spinach leaves which wilted quickly. In a pot I boiled some spagetti in chicken stock. When the pasta was cooked I added it in to the pan of sauteed veg with a large packet of smoked salmon, the remaining chicken stock and half a

    2 years ago by traceysblog We are just home from  @thehelixpanto  and I do not have enough good things to say about it. Having worked at Pantos for years I didn't know what to expect as this would be my first time to see one at  @thehelixdublin  It was absolutely amazing from start to finish.

Like EVERYTHING.

  • Im 15 weeks pregnant today how crazy is that? I
    2 years ago by traceysblog I'm 15 weeks pregnant today, how crazy is that? I genuinely still have moments where I think it's not real - it's still totally surreal. Life in general has been totally surreal for the last four months. We went on holiday, got a call while there which made us panic that the house wouldn't be happening, came home to find out we were pregnant, got the keys a month later and then began all things cyst. A rollercoaster of emotions. I'm off to have my MRI today. I genuinely don't feel a bit worried. I should be out within an
