Hello everyone! Wow, it's been a busy week for me... So it was such a relief to find out that Plunkett had been messing around with photos on the computer again. Thanks Plunkett, you've saved Tuesday's blog post! He and Paddy thought it might be fun to place themselves somewhere far-flung and interesting, and see … Continue reading Where in the World are Paddy and Plunkett?
Hello there Beastie friends! And welcome to February... Spring is now juuuust around the corner, right? And with days lengthening and daffodils and snowdrops starting to poke their way through the earth, is it possible that the lockdown is thawing out a bit too? Paddy certainly thinks so. "Camera, car keys, a box of travel … Continue reading Adventuring in Lockdown
Hello there everyone! Well, I hope you're hungry, because this week's post is all about FOOD! I was set on this train of thought by last week's post, which started off with a picture of Explorer Beastie tucking into a human-sized breakfast. MY human-sized breakfast, I might add... And it appears that I'm not the … Continue reading Food for Thought…
Hello there Beastie friends! And hey, look at this - we're nearly halfway through January already. That HAS to be worth celebrating! Now normally at this time of year, my brother and I (often with a certain small blue and yellow woolly monster in tow) would spend a day driving around beautiful Co Donegal, in … Continue reading Memory Lane: Donegal Road Trips
Hello there Beastie friends! I hope you're all staying safe and keeping well in these strange times. I thought I'd do something a little different today, and share a behind-the-scenes story... My Christmas in the countryside! I usually head north of the border to spend the festive season with my family in Northern Ireland. Unfortunately, … Continue reading Countryside Christmas
It's the first BeastieBlog of 2021... Happy new year, everybody! And although this first week of January didn't bring a whole lot of good news on the pandemic front, in some parts of the island of Ireland it did bring something a little unusual - SNOW! And some of it fell in the back garden … Continue reading New Year? Snow Way!
Hurrah! 2020 has been a heckuva year, but we're down to the last couple of days now AT LAST! So might it maybe be a good time to start looking to the future? I thought so, and that's why I sat down today to comb through my Beastie photo archives and put together an all-new … Continue reading New Year, New Calendar!
... And a monster new year! Wow, it's been a bit of a crazy one, hasn't it? I'm sure many of us will be glad to file away our (barely-used) 2020 calendars, and get stuck into a fresh shiny year! Here's wishing you all a very happy holiday season, whatever you're doing and wherever you … Continue reading We wish you a Merry Beastmas…
Oh, it's snuck up on me (and possibly all of you as well) a bit this year! But with the evenings getting darker, trees suddenly looking bare and the odd set of fairy lights appearing in windows around town, there's no denying it - the end of the year is fast approaching. And that means... … Continue reading It’s that time again…
Hello there everyone! You know, after writing up Paddy and Plunkett's garden adventure in last week's post, I started thinking about how being outdoors is one thing that the pandemic hasn't really been able to affect that much. In fact, if anything, we're all outside a lot more than we might have been in a … Continue reading Beasties in the Great Outdoors
