We pretty much hit our peak within the first hour of arriving in Galway with that bad boy below. Aunt Zelda! We ate in a famous fish and chip restaurant and there were photos of "famous" people such as the lovely Aunt Zelda and Terry O'Quinn (aka Locke from Lost, aka Peter Watts from Millenium).
It was only my second time in Galway and I was excited to do some sightseeing/messing around with the gang. We went to the museum, got coffee in Butler's Chocolate Café (which is in Dublin too, but the girls hadn't tried it so we had to get some when we saw it), we went for a pint in a pub just off Eyre Square, got drinks in the off license and had them in the hotel room and then went out for dinner (not before we all put on horse transfers).
The following day we walked to Salthill, went to the arcade, to Lohan's for lunch and then walked back to Galway and got our bus home. Enjoy the highlights below!

So there you have it, my in depth guide to Galway! JK. Seriously though, all you need to know is Galway = Windy.
Seriously though, it is a lovely city with a very different atmosphere to Dublin. We would have loved to have had a car to drive around and see the scenery a bit more.
How have you all been lately?
It is my brother's 15th birthday today! I can't believe it. It really makes me feel old! Happy Birthday Jack!
This past week I've watched Avengers and Titanic in the cinema, the latter was a bit of a cry party for me, Kate and my mam. Avengers was so good! Has anyone else seen it yet? Donnacha and I have been watching the new season of Mad Men, (which I think has been incredible so far) and The Killing. Also we found out yesterday that my boy Childish Gambino aka Troy Barnes from Community is playing here in August. I am extremely excited.
Last week in work I got asked to go out to another one of branches today to train the Children's Visual Merchandiser there. I said yes despite being very apprehensive about it for numerous reasons, one of which was that our old manager who some of you may remember was not the nicest person, is the manager there now. I also wasn't sure about my abilities and the combination of everything made me even more determined to do it and to do a great job of it so we'll see what is said about it tomorrow when I go back to my shop. It definitely made me appreciate where I work and who I work with!
Hope you're having a great week,
