Here’s how July went for me:
A- Z Blog:
In the “A to Z Blog Series” about how my treatments can help with common ailments, I blogged about the letters M and N.
Click on the links below for each in case you missed one
M is for Migraine
N is for Neck Pain
Powerscourt Estate and Gardens
In July we visited the beautiful Powerscourt Estate in Wicklow. Its so pretty and peaceful and a must see in it is the Pet cemetery 🐾 , the resting place for many a family pet, including ‘Black Beauty’, ‘Kilfane’ and my personal favourite ‘Eugenie’ and ‘Princess’ who were cows. ‘Eugenie’ had 17 calves and produced 100,000 gallons of milk and ‘Princess’ was an Irish Times champion. RIP my dear friends.. Universally beloved!
But by far my favourite part was the Japanese gardens. Future garden goals right there.
Moon Mna Diary
I was very excited when I heard about this diary online and as I couldn’t wait till January to start it, I got myself one in July. Each date has space for your daily ‘soul moment’ and ‘gratitude’ piece and it’s full of inspiration and beautiful quotes… and of course it details the moons movements and all things moon related. I just love it already!!
Galway International Arts Festival
The GIAF took place in July and here are some of it that I visited .
The Ghost Chapel in the Claddagh.
The people cardboard castle and exhibitions in Eyre Square.
Jenny Green and the RTE concert orchestra in The Big Top.
We went to see the award winning Wicked-the musician in the Bord Gais in Dublin. Absolutely amazing and so entertaining I would definitely recommend it if you haven’t seen it. I got my tickets when it was announced last October but I do believe they still have tickets on the ticket master website if you take a look. You won’t be disappointed.
The Book Thief – Markus Zusak
📚 What took me so long to find this book?? This multi award winning book is read by ‘Death’ himself and is very powerful (at times sad and at times happy) in its story about the life of a 9 year old girl and her family and friends in the middle of war torn Germany under Nazi rule. It’s an excellent read and while I know a lot of people have already read this, I would recommend it if you haven’t.
‘Not my fathers son’ – Alan Cumming
I have huge respect for this actor after reading this powerful and very personal account of family life for Alan. I didn’t know anything really about him (only from The Good Wife) but when I started reading this, I couldn’t stop. This isn’t for the light hearted but I enjoyed it and do recommend it if you like autobiographies.
Not your Average Nurse – Maggie Geoff
This is an entertaining and honest true story of Maggies own student nursing days in 1970 and 1980s in London (and Australia) . I accidentally came upon this and surprising enjoyed it (surprisingly because I could never be a nurse, all that blood! 🙈). I listened to it on borrow box and laughed out loud on my commute home.
So that’s it, a busy July. I hoped your enjoyed it as much as me.
