Planning a great weekend!

This is gonna be a great weekend. I have plans!
Tonight I’m going to see the musical singing in the rain with mom and my aunt. We booked it a few weeks ago. I love musicals and used to be in a stage school for many years, so seeing this show will really bring me a lot of happy memories from my childhood in the montfort college of performing arts.
Tomorrow my cousin is having her birthday party. It was her birthday earlier this week. We’re going to a local restaurant for dinner and then probably will have a few drinks after that. Except I dont think I’m going to drink any alcohol because it will mess with my weight loss programme. But I will still enjoy myself I’m sure.
This afternoon moms going to put a color in my hair. I was going to get it done in the salon but its so expensive and a box color is just as good in my opinion. This morning I’m going to the beauticians to get my lip and eyebrows waxed. I’m trying out a new beauticians that my sister recommended to me.
What are your plans for the weekend?

A fun weekend…

So the weekend was absolutely great. I went to Killarney, a town about 90 minutes from where I live. I went with my mom, sister, aunt, two cousins, and four of their friends. It was all girls, and we had a blast!
We went on the train. The weather was mostly horrible, but we didnt care, we were too busy having so much fun, that it didnt matter that the rain was bucketing down outside.
We just went for one night, could have done two, but at the time we booked it we didnt realise how much we’d enjoy it. We stayed in a hostel, my first experience of staying in such a place. We would have stayed in a hotel, but everywhere was booked up, and the few places which werent were charging astronomical prices.
The hostel was really clean and actually quite a nice place. Not that we saw much of it though lol. We basically just went there to throw our bags in our room, and then we were gone to the bars and clubs, and we didnt get back to the hostel till 4 AM. The bars and clubs were amazing. We started off in one bar, ate our dinner there, had a few drinks, there was music there but it wasnt great so we moved on to another bar. The second bar we went to had mostly a young crowd in it, like teens 18 to 21, so we didnt stay there long either. We finally went to a third bar where we stayed, there was a nightclub attached to it which some of the younger girls went to. I didnt go in to the club though, because there was a live band in the bar that were excellent. They really knew how to get the crowd going. After the band finished up, a disco started, it was still going when we left at 3 AM to go and get food.
We lined up in a small fast food place, and oh man I almost got squashed, I never saw such a huge line of people, all pushing and shoving trying to get in, skip the line, etc. I didnt really like that part. But we got our food, I sent my sister to get mine, while my mom took me outside away from the crowd. We ate our food on our way home.
I shared a room with my mom and my aunt, and when we got home I fell into bed. I was after drinking about 12 drinks, and was quite tipsy. I slept the longest out of everyone, I went to sleep at about 4 30 and didnt wake till 11 30 the next day. And by then everyone else was up and dressed and showered, after coffee, so I had rush to get ready and leave the hostel as we had to be out by 12 noon.
We went back to the very first bar we’d been in, ate breakfast, and then started drinking again. What fun we had. We took over the place lol. We were playing music on our phones, singing songs, just generally having fun and being crazy lol. At one point the bar man came over and said we were making too much noise and could we calm down a little bit. So we tried, but that didnt last too long lol. We left at 5 to go get our train home, we almost missed that because we were so late leaving the bar. When we did get to the train station, me and my mom couldnt get tickets, there was no ticket office open. Everyone else had gotten return tickets the day before, and I didnt, as I had a pass and so I didnt pay for my ticket, I thought there’d be a ticket office there. So me and mom just took our chances and got on the train without a ticket. Luckily nobody stopped us and we got home ok, but mom was so worried that the ticket inspector would come on and find out and throw us off the train. I had to keep telling her that if he did I’d talk to him and that it would be ok. When we got back to Cork we went to my aunts to finish off the party. We had an amazing time, and we ordered pizza, drank, and at 11 our aunt was wrecked so she gave us a subtle hint that we should leave and go home which we did.
I must say it was one of the funnest and best weekends I’ve had in a long time. I hope over the summer we can do something like that again. Now my readers know how much the irish love to party, and we’re good at it too lol. There were americans and canadians in the bar yesterday afternoon, I think they thought we were all crazy, but we gave them a good laugh.

Birthday celebrations

Yesterday our grandad turned 80 years old. We had a big celebration in honour of his big day.

Most of our family went out for a meal. Almost all of his kids went, there was his grandkids, and great grandkids too. It was a lot of fun and he really enjoyed himself.

We went to a bar-restaurant to eat. We brought a big birthday cake, and a bottle of champaigne also. Everyone ate and drank for a couple of hours. Then at about 4 PM we went back to our grandads house.

We spent a few hours in his house, chatting and eating more food. Then some of us came back to my moms house last night for drinks and more celebrations. We had a great night. We stayed up until about 2 AM. By the time everyone left to go home I was exhausted. But it was a great day all in all.

I cant believe our grandad is 80. He’s had so many health problems over the last 7 years, that none of us thought he’d ever reach 80. So it is a great achievement that he did.
