Irish Funny Man for Breakfast

No not really.

Howdy hey, my amazing friends! 

Thank you for your kind responses on this post. It’s a shame that so many of us feel pressure to look a certain way but I like to believe that we look the way we do for a reason. So let’s be kind to our bodies and treat them with the utmost respect, mmkay?

I have had a pretty awesome week. Do you know this guy?

Dylan Moran!


If you don’t know who Dylan Moran is then you have not experienced life. There, I said it. If that is the case, let me give you the low down.

He is Irish.

Enough said………………………………Naaah, just kidding. 

He is a comedian who has starred in a very funny little show called Black Books and has popped up in movies such as Run Fat Boy Run and Shaun of the Dead. Let’s just say if you haven’t seen any of that, you are missing out.

Tuesday this week, I went to see him live. Oh. My. Fibula. It was so hilarious!! You can watch some of his stuff on YouTube if you don’t believe me. It was almost the best day of my life. I was so sad when it was over!

[Cue change of topic here]


So, this week has been an interesting week breakfast food-wise. I haven’t been craving oatmeal at all which is strange for me. Perhaps it’s the change in weather or the fact that there are only so many times that you can have the same kind of oats for breakfast in the morning, but it was time for a change.

Dun duuuuuunnn.

Toasted Muesli with branflakes and strawbz.

My dear friend makes this muesli for me of which I am forever grateful! But I don’t enjoy it high and dry ’cause that’s just gross. 

Why that's yoghurt and more strawbz.

And there was soy milk on the side as well. I can’t just have yoghurt and cereal. I like my cereal soggy, thank you very much. I have to say that this change of pace at breakfast has certainly gone down a treat and it saves me about 5 minutes in the morning which is very much needed. It takes me about 2 hours to get ready in the mornings for work. That is, I shower (sometimes wash my hair, sometimes not), make my lunch, make breakfast, eat breakfast, get into my uncomfy tight pants, slap on some make up and head out the door. Luckily, I start work at 9:30 so I don’t have to get up at stupid o’clock. 6:30 is stupid enough for me.

What have you been enjoying for breakfast lately?

If you have oats, how do you have them? I need some new ideas!!! Also, does putting egg whites in oats make them taste overpoweringly eggy? Or is there just a hint?

Do you share my love for Dylan Moran?



The Sun, it BURNS!

Wow, this winter storm that we’re currently experiencing is unbearable……………….


That is currently the view from our sun room window. Wellington is a beauty, ain’t she? You know what is even more beautiful about Wellington? The fact that Stephen Fry & Orlando Bloom are here. STEPHEN – freaking – FRY! 

OK, if you don’t know who Stephen Fry is, then you should be shot I shall (briefly) explain.



Hmm…perhaps I should find a better picture…

That's better.


He is an amazing man. He has done many amazing things in his life (Read about him here). But what I mostly know him for is being the Quiz Master of the show QI. That is by far one of my favourite shows ever to be in existence.

Fry is in Wellington, New Zealand (where I live) at the moment because he is playing a role in The Hobbit which is, of course, being filmed in New Zealand like the rest of The Lord of the Rings films. Which also explains why Orlando Bloom is here as well. So you can imagine my excitement when he updates his Twitter with things like:

Yes, yes it does.

Suffice it to say, I am going to be planning a stalking expedition very soon. I love this man.

And what better way to end a post than to show you what has been keeping me warm on this awful, awful stormy winters morning 😉

As you can see, I didn't have the patience to take a picture before eating.

Happy Sunday!

Have you ever had a celebrity live/stay in your town before? If so, who? 

Have you ever met a celebrity?

Do you stalk celebs on Twitter like me? Don’t tell me I’m the only creepy stalker here.
