And even though both of these bedrooms vary wildly I love what they have done on their walls. The prints over the bed in the top one and the baskets used for storage in the second.

Anticipation - My gift to T for valentines this year was tickets to see Mick Flannery in Dolans tomorrow night and I am so glad to see that he is really excited about going. Mick is a 25 year old Corkonian with a gravely voice and fantastic songwriting skills. I'll post more about the gig over the weekend.
New clothes - I was a little naughty yesterday, took the afternoon off and went into the city centre to see if there were any sales still on. I found a new pair of jeans and a gorgeous, really long jersey cardi in New Look for only €40. I heart new clothes!
Water - I know this might sound weird, but this week I love water. Isn't it amazing how water can cure so many day to day illnesses! Headaches, bladder and kidney infections, upset tummies no more.
My man's fashion sense - I know that he probably won't like me loving his lack of fashion sense but I think it's a really cute feature of his. He never really bothered to make sure his socks match his shoes or whether he needs a hair cut and his life is that little bit easier because of it. Imagine how much time you would save in the morning if you could just throw on anything you wanted and go.
Travel Mugs -I now know that I cannot live without mine. Morning joe is a necessity in my life.
People Who Come Home From Around The World Trips - T's friends, J & S, are finally back in Ireland. They've spent the last 8 months or so traipsing around the globe. I can't wait to meet up with them and get filled in on all their goings on over a huge pot of steaming tea. You can read about their adventures here.

Valentines - I know that Valentines day is still ages away, and that it's really only a commercial holiday, and that it was invented by the card companies but I still love it. In fact... I heart Valentines. Trying to find a really meaningful gift that I know T will really appreciate gives me such a thrill. He knows what he's getting this year.... I had to make sure that he was free on a certain evening and he knew that he had to be in limerick for it so he figured out who was playing in Dolans Warehouse that night. And he was right!
Long hair -I used to have really really short hair for years and years, and I mean really, almost shaved off, short. When I moved to Limerick I decided to grow it. That was about 4 and a half years ago but it still astounds me, on an almost daily basis, just how long it has gotten. Before you start thinking that I have hair that I can sit on I don't, but to have any form of long hair is such a major achievement for me.
Mocha's - At the moment I'm on a 'healthy eating regime' (diet is just a scary word) so there are no more desserts or things with butter or things with sugar or things of nom. But I miss mocha's the most. I always loved mocha's... hence needing to 'eat healthily' now. I find them to be really comforting... with just a little kickstart. Almost better than dessert! I miss my wonderful chocolaty coffee. Does anyone know of a low calorie version?
Friends - One of the guys in the office... let's just call him J... has just offered to take my books back to the library for me. What a sweetie! Now I don't have to go out in the cold and trudge all the way down to the campus book depository. Yea!
