Hello everybody, and happy Friday to you all!
It’s been all go here in Beastie Towers. Earlier in the week, I had a birthday… I was *cough* 29!
And I hope none of you are hungry, because I celebrated with THESE. Thanks, Boyfriend!

It’s hard to see in the photo, but the box and tissue paper lining are printed with pictures of monsters, too… Now I’m NEVER going to be able to put that in the recycling!
Also from the Twittersphere… Another completed colour-in calendar page! Thanks for sharing, Tammie!

I was delighted to get Beastie greetings from some monsters overseas as well! Climber Beastie dropped in from this rugged mountain range…
…And here’s Sinéad Beastie. She brought a friend to the party!
You can see more of Sinéad’s adventures on Daze and Weekes, here!
Speaking of adventures, Paddy and Plunkett were at large again earlier in the week. And while Paddy’s reimagining of “A Knight’s Tale” got the most laughs…
… There was also a murmur of interest in this traditional Irish river curragh, housed in the same museum.
This is extra exciting for me, because my Dad made it! So, I thought I’d pop in a link to his curragh-building Facebook page today, in case any of you wanted to find out a little more about these awesome historical boats and how they’re constructed!
And finally, don’t forget it’s St Patrick’s Day this weekend! I’m starting the celebrations early with a spot of knitting (what else?) at St Patrick’s Cathedral.
You see, for the last 6 weeks, my local yarn shop has been hosting free knitting, crochet and felting sessions, led by me and my fellow crafters Aoibhe Ní and Niki Collier. We’ve been helping people from the local community to get together and make little handmade gifts, which will be given away to visitors to the Cathedral over the festival weekend. So, if you’re in the area, pop along and say hello… and maybe learn a new skill!
Otherwise, swing by again on Tuesday to meet the latest addition to the Beastie family! See you then!
