As I child and into my adulthood I was always part of my family's St. Patrick's day celebrations, even on a school night! All day long my mum would be boiling up crubeens (pig's trotters), tripe and onions and lambs tongues, all 'delicacies' that my dad and his friends loved, and these would be wrapped in foil or put in plastic containers to take out to the local Catholic club in the evening, when a fair few pints of The Black Stuff (Guinness) would be consumed to accompany the Irish dishes!! I'll never forget how greasy everything would feel afterwards, door handles, tables, glasses...YUCK!!! And no, despite my new Irish citizenship, I've never acquired the taste for any of the above!
Here is a little Irish Blessing for you!
I don't think I have any dolls clothes in green but here is Marisol wearing shades of turquoise....it is after all, the colour of the Irish Sea when it's not stormy!!!!
Who knows, one year I might even have clothing for my dolls that reflects 'special occasions'.....but it's highly unlikely as I'm not that organised!!!
I hope you all have a lovely weekend and that the week ahead is a great one for you!
Big hugs, Sharon x
