Monday's Moments - 30/04


The last day of April is upon us, crazy - that and the fact that it's a Bank Holiday next Monday means it's already an ok Monday in my book but, as ever, I've got five moments to chase away the blues. Ready?


1.This Literally NEVER Happens


I had a post last week about the astonishing effects I've had with OPI's Nail Envy. The pic above is 3 weeks worth of nail growth using this wonder stuff and has resulted in this week's number one moment. 

This past week I've found my nails were too long, you read that right My Nails = Too Long! So for the first time since childhood, when D'Mammy used to cut all but one (My peeling nail)(The thumb with a beauty spot on) I actually clipped my nails. Seeing as they're usually stubby wonders what with work and general slavery, this is a revelation!


2. I Could've Died. Dead!

Source
I've been making a concerted effort of late to be a little bit more active, doing an extra lap with the madra, consistently threatening to start the Couch25K, good stuff like that. That's why when I got a phone call from reception on Thursday that a package had been delivered for me, I thought 'I know, I'll trot down the six flights to pick it up'. 'Go me', I thought.  

Off I skipped, fully intending to get the lift back up (I'm not mad) when the unthinkable happened, our ever gorgeous and helpful security guard met me on the last step with the delivery! I could hardly push past him to the lift so I thanked him kindly, turned and made my way back up. Cue me sitting at my desk, breathing into my scarf like Darth Vader for 10 minutes, trying my utmost not to pass out. I'm starting that Couch25K. I am. 

3. Being Elmo


Myself and the eldest had the chance to head off to the Lighthouse cinema on Wednesday to see the screening of Being Elmo. It's the story of Kevin Clash, the man behind the muppet. I feel no shame in admitting that I love this little dude. His duet with Andrea Bocelli gets me every time so we were thrilled to get a chance to see this. 

We adored it. It was beautifully made, an absolute joy to behold and easily the feel good flick of the year, maybe of the past ten. Both Aar and I (though he'll bate me for telling) laughed and cried, even the little kids in the audience were silent for the duration, mesmerised by the screen. If you get a chance to see it, definitely do, you'll love it. 

4. I Can Tell That We Are Gonna Be Friends


The youngest has been complaining about his hair (again), this is the same child that was checking himself out in a car window and realised after a minute that there was a man sitting inside and all he could do was wave, while all I could do was convulse with laughter.

Well, he must have said something to his new girlfriend about it because on Friday this picture was posted on his Facebook timeline with the caption 'Love your new do, Hun'. I'm not going to lie, I almost choked - of course he has no clue who Worzel Gummidge is so thought it was 'random'. The fact that she's 14, knows Worzel and has a kick ass sense of humour? She's in!

5. Sigh No More: I Won't! 


Last up we have one of the Moments of the year so far, that'll probably only be topped on June 9th. MCD had a shout out for Mumford and Sons fans last week that might want to rock on down to their only Irish date in Galway and see the lads strut their stuff. How could I resist? 

Sigh No More is one of my favourite albums, every single track a stormer so I am literally counting the days to this! Turning it into a Spa weekend with the Sis after the show? Well it'd be rude not to, wouldn't it?


Sin an scéal for this week, got anything fab you'd like to share? I'd love to hear it.
