May started this week... and that also heralds the traditional start of summer in Ireland! Now, the weather never feels truly summery until we hit June, but you can't argue with tradition, can you? And this idea goes way back - the Celtic festival of Beltane falls at around this time each year, signalling that … Continue reading Blooming Beasties!
Well hello there, Beastie people! And look, the weekend is very nearly here! So I thought it might be fun to catch up with some other members of the far-flung Beastie family... it appears that a couple of them have been taking advantage of the (vaguely) improving weather! For starters, any of you who enjoyed … Continue reading Friday Social #6 – Beastie Adventures From Near and Far!
Finally! I've stumbled on proof that unicorns are in fact real! Except maybe they look a little different to what popular culture and centuries of mythologising might have led us to believe... Perhaps they look a little Beastie-er! Hey there, Unicorn Beastie! This sweet little monster maiden kinda knows that she's special. I mean, look … Continue reading A Magical, Mythical Monster!
The terrible twosome are back! I was looking through my old emails the other day, and I came across an unblogged Paddy and Plunkett adventure from - ta daaaah! - a bright sunny day last June. I'm not sure about you, but Spring is taking its time getting into full swing here in Dublin... ...and … Continue reading Boghopping Beasties!
Hey there Beastie friends! I hope you all had a super weekend... Especially any of you who were celebrating St Patrick's Day on Saturday! Today on the BeastieBlog, we're weighing in on an issue that has been troubling humans for centuries - the ongoing battle between the arts and the sciences. And is it really … Continue reading Arts? Science? Why Choose?
Or rather on the rails, because the boys recently took a road trip... By train! Their first port of call after leaving home was (of course) a quick tea break in Belfast. You can't go adventuring without fuelling up first! They found a nice spot where they could look out at the City Hall, and … Continue reading Off the Rails with Paddy and Plunkett!
I've really been spoiling you all with the new Beasties lately. And look, here's another one... The first official Beastie commission of 2018! This fuzzy little fellow was specially created for Stephen, who recently celebrated his third birthday, and whose favourite thing is... Road signs! Turns out there's a bit of a gap in the … Continue reading New Beastie Time? Sign Me Up!
Well hello there! And despite the best efforts of the mean ol' flu bug that temporarily disrupted my blogging last week, I'm now back in the land of the living. Hurrah! So, shall we celebrate by meeting a new Beastie? I think so! Those of you who keep up with Laura at A Pict in … Continue reading A Picture-Perfect Beastie!
... We're sick! And that has upset the apple cart a little bit here at Beastie Towers. So, I'm just stopping in to say hello, and to promise that the new Beastie I planned to introduce to you this week will be joining us next week instead. She has SO MUCH cool stuff to share … Continue reading Please Excuse Us…
Explorer Beastie's been a bit quiet lately, hasn't he? But he always likes to take advantage of the post-Christmas lull to do a spot of out-of-town adventuring, and last week found both of us up in Donegal again, treading a slightly different path from the one we took this time last year. Actually, this breaking … Continue reading Back to the Wild North West!
