The Fish Shop is a new kind of fish and chip shop in the South Dublin suburb of Blackrock. Although it has customers who come from near and far I suspect that many who regularly walk down Blackrock’s Main Street don’t know of its existence as it is located a little off the main drag to the rear of The Blackrock Market.
I am now officially a full-time student as I started my year-long photography course in September.
One thing leads to another. Inevitability. So, when I checked the Kilruddery website, immediately after my August visit to the house and garden, I discovered that a berry foraging and jam making session led by Ed Hick was scheduled for Sunday the 21st September. And as I thought it was the type of event I might enjoy I promptly booked a place.
I am forever wondering how I can improve my writing. There are tons of suggestions out there and one I often encounter is the advice to read a lot. Of course, there are other things I could do so when I saw that a feature writing workshop was on the list of events for last weekend’s Mountains to Sea Book Festival I didn’t hesitate for a nano second before signing up.
I could claim that the recent lack of a blog post was due to the pressure of a maddeningly long to-do list but that would be economical with the truth because the reality is said lack is down to my unfailing talent (not) for caving into distractions.
In a little short of two weeks, from now, I start my full-time photography course. My feelings about my forthcoming studies are dual in that I am eagerly anticipating them and yet am apprehensive about my ability to wrap my brain around the theoretical aspects of photography.
I have been using coconut oil to cook with for some time, not for ever, but I did start to use it before it became as widely available as it is now. These days it’s as easy to source as ice cream by the seaside on a hot summer’s day as it has slipped into the river of mainstream and is sold in supermarkets.
