Last week we heard about the Terminal Convention exhibition taking place at Cork Airport and decided to have a look. To most people the following photographs will just look like an aged airport. Surprising myself I was quite nostalgic as we walked around the deserted terminal - everything is so familiar yet changed by the art installations - and yes folks those fish tanks in baggage claim were full with fish at one time! Now we have a bright shiny new Terminal complete with Starbucks but I was glad of the chance to see our old airport with its single departure lounge and nifty glass elevators!

Is it wrong of me to like this Cath Kidston range of Royal Wedding Memorabilia? After all I think a Royal Wedding is fun regardless of nationality. These items are quite different to the Official range which is very tasteful and blue! We're heading to London in May so I thought I could pick up some fun items then but I really like this CK range - especially the Tea Towel!

A few weekends back we visited Dublin - even though Cork is great I really miss the opening of new cafes and shops in Dublin! One of which is definitely Sound Bites Cafe in Tower Records on Wicklow Street. As you can see - its very vintage cool - I was particularly taken with this blue table and chairs combo! It not only looks good - the food is lovely too - so nice in fact that we went for two visits over the weekend! We indulged in the Afternoon Special - and for breakfast - the Eggs & Soldiers! Also there is a very good view of the Hermès window at Brown Thomas - one can but dream!

I came across this line in a magazine a while back but only just recently saw it in for real in the Kilkenny Shop in Dublin and I was not disappointed! I'm sure all the Kilkenny shops have some in stock but the Nassau Street shop had a really fantastic display! (More on which later in the week) I think I'll be asking for some of these pieces for my birthday - just to keep the Linear Stem Sugar Bowl I bought some company!
