On the 29th of November Ann and myself set out for Shannon airport at 6 on the Thursday morning. Took off from Shannon and landed in Dublin for an hour and then took off for OHare's airport in Chicago.
We got to the hotel all my 6 boxes of scrap goodies were waiting for me. That night we went to see the musical Wicked. It was brilliant. Walked back to the hotel and fell into bed. Ann had me up every morning at 4.30.
On the Saturday we met up with Gwen and she drove us to Oakley Mall outside the city which was great to see the houses and sights along the way. It was snowing that day for a few hours. We then met up with Luanna at Archiver's at Freeveiw. Wow what a store everything under one roof. I got a few things and my tote bag at Archiver's.Thank you Gwen for a great day.

We did lots of shopping, sight seeing and taking lots of photos.
Chicago is beautiful, clear and friendly city.
We came back home on 4th of Decbemer, on Tuesday around 3 it started to snow there was a snow stomer on it's way, but we took off on time.

My New Baby

Yesterday I got a new lens EF70-300mm F4-5.6IS USM, had fun when it arrived. I went around the town last night to take a few shots. It's a pity that I didn't get the lens before the
weekend, I went to Banna beach for the kite surfing on Saturday.

Caroline's Crop

I had the weekend off work and went to Caroline's on Friday night and came home on Sunday night. On Saturday morning I did some crafting. I did one lo, a birthday card and book.

Went to Caroline's crop on Sunday morning in the Commons Inn in Cork. Helen drove us there. I had a brilliant day meeting everyone and just looking at everyone working on their lo's and looking through their albums.
Looking forward to Caroline's next crop next month.

This is the lo we did for Caroline's class. The photo is of my Mum when she was a young girl.

Went to Justin Timberlake concert on Saturday 30 0f June. I met and stayed in Coleen's house on the Saturday.
We ate in this bar and restaurant at the top of Grafton street. The food was beautiful there, will go the next time I am in Dublin. I will find out the name.

The concert was brilliant, he sang all the songs from his new cd which I love and Cry Me A River. The atmosphere was brilliant and Justin is a great entertainer.

On the 6 June George Michael was on in concert in the RDS. The lighting was absolutely fabulous, every song had a different lighting. It was a pity that it was bright when the concert started we didn't appreciate the full affects of the lights until it got dark.
The show started at 8 o'clock had an interval for 15 mins and was over at 11.45. He came back on stage and sang one song which was Freedom again, which was great.
He sang some of his old and new songs, there was only two songs that I didn't like. My favourite song would be Faith.
We met Keith Duffy at the concert, Lisa my daughter was with me.
I am not a great fan of George Michael's but I would like some of his songs. His concert was fantastic I would go again.
