Dublin Flea Christmas Cracker Market

Been very slack with posting. I am just not that great with social media!
I am doing the Dublin Flea Christmas Cracker the weekend of 13th, 14th and 15th of December in Block T in Smithfield, Dublin 7. Its a dead busy market full of lovely stuff. The buzz is great. I just hope I have enough stock to make my booth look fine and festive. I'll have lots of printed textiles, including linen table runners and tea towel, baby grows and decorations. I might need some elves to help me make it all! And everything will be gift wrapped ready to go under your tree. Hope to see you there!
Hand Screen Printed Linen Table Runner and Napkins. Just some of the products available at the Christmas Cracker Flea.

I found this blog I started a few years ago. When I say started I mean I titled it and then left it go. I don't even know what I have to say here. I just finished my teacher training exams this weekend. Tough for a few reasons, mainly because I didn't study enough and my yoga practise went down the swanee the last 12 weeks. But sure that's the way it goes, I can resit if I have to. Doing exams this time of year takes me back to the leaving cert, it was always dead sunny when you would be in studying, looking out the window at everyone who wasn't doing exams playing rounders and kicking the can. Brought up a loads of memories I hadn't the time to delve into over the years. Really made me think of my age, I'm 40. Then I saw one of my friends cycle up Manor street who is the same age, and she looked in her mid 20's, free on her bike having a grand old time hauling herself up the hill. And I thought, that's me. Fuck age.
