Last weekend, to celebrate Cora turning ONE my bff and Godmother extrodinaire to all 5 of my bambinos flew over to see us! yay!!!

True story – last year right after I text her along the lines of ‘omg you are never gonna believe this, so I basically had a baby on my sofa and we are all ok and on the way to hospital in the ambulance right now and im in so much pain its not even funny’ her first response was ‘im flying over tomorrow!!!”, and she did, and we spent Cora’s first few days on earth sitting down drinking tea and watching then chatting about trashy reality TV, kids films, while lounging about on the sofa with the fire lit. It was nothing short of amazing and if I ever have any more children that is exactly how I want to spend all of their first few days on this planet.

This year for Weez’ visit we planned to actually get out and do stuff. So last Friday after school we all swanned off to Galway to visit Amococo by Architects of Air, for the 18th Galway international children’s arts festival or Baboró as its known for short!. It was a huge hit. The kids loved it!!!


Amococo is basically a huge rubber bubble airlock where they play calming relaxing music . I think you are supposed to be at one with the installation and experience the different colours and it be zen like and calming. It was very very arty. I loved it, Mr Clev thought it was ok and Weez suggested playing upbeat music in there to make it more fun and liven things up a bit (good shout pal – I reckon some 80s classics could make the whole experience way more fun!).



Luis and Maxi loved milling about and exploring the different zones. It was cool watching the girls react to it too, they were a bit unsure at first but liked it after a while. I don’t know what Baboró has in store for next year, but I thought the stuff they had on offer this year was fabulous, we didnt make it to any of the theatre events but I know someone who went to ‘The elves and the shoemakers’ and raved about it. Next year Im going to attempt one of the children’s theatre events, they are really good value and something a bit different.




After Amacoco we went to Galway city museum. Heads up to Mamas with babies in Galway for a day out – they have awesome good toilets and baby changing FOR FREE!!! Because it is tucked away down near the Spanish Arch the loo’s are never busy, and there is a big cafe too, which is way easier to navigate with a buggy than the new Costa on shop street.

Anyway, Galway City Museum had an interactive exhibit about the ocean up on the top floor. A big submarine and lots of hands on displays and stuff to try out. I’m not sure if its always there or not but its pretty cool. They had a big wall where you could write a letter to the ocean. My favourite one read ‘Ocen,  sorry i peed in you, love Bill’. Bill is a legend.

After that it was Milano for dinner. Another heads up, its awesome there HOWEVER a margharita pizza is 10 euros, which is waaaaay more than it is in their UK chains. We had a 25% off our meal voucher printed from their website. Also, the kids meal is 8 something, so we find it actually much cheaper to get 2 adults margharitas and share it out between the kiddos. Win.

So Christmas in October also happened. This is not going to feature as our Christmas card this year but I wanted to share it because it made me laugh, we must have looked like complete head cases casually whipping out a ‘merry christmas’ banner!!!!

We stopped at Supermacs in Oranmore on the way home for a choco cone, obvs because Supermacs has the most awesome ice creams, and that was our fabulous Galway day. I heart Galway. When my kids all move out I am going to live in an edgy, arty, breakable and precious stuff filled apartment with lots of exposed brick and dry clean only materials. This coming weekend we are going to go to the Macnas parade (if it doesnt pee down with rain), which should be another fun Galway day out. I’m already looking forward to Babaro next year!

    אם אתם מחפשים בילוי מפנק כדאי לכם לבלות עם נערות ליווי. הנערות הסקסיות יכולות להזכיר לכם שאתם גברים שאוהבים ליהנות. הן יודעות כיצד לפנק אתכם ומבינות בדיוק מה שאתם רוצים גם אם לא תגידו להן. הן יכולות להפתיע אתכם בעיסויים מפנקים ומענגים, הרבה מעבר למה שאתם מצפים. נערות ליווי הן פשוט מומחיות באומנות העינוג וכל מי שבילה איתן פעם אחת ירצה לחזור שוב ושוב. אם בא לכם להפיג את השעמום בשעות הערב או בסופי השבוע, אם בא לכם לבלות בצורה יוצאת דופן ולא לעשות את אותם הדברים המשעממים כמו תמיד, הזמינו נערה או שתיים ותוסיפו קצת פלפל לחיים שלכם.
