Happy St Patrick's Day


This is a picture of my grandson who will be 14 in a few days. When he was younger the local neighbourhood where Beccy lives always held a fancy dress party and disco for the children in a local hotel to celebrate St. Patrick's Day. I happened to be visiting one year and decided to make the costume. I rashly said I think he should go as a pint of Guinness and of course I had to put my money where my mouth is as the saying goes and come up with the costume. I have to say I was quite pleased with the end result. As Dillon's body was totally enclosed he must have been so hot but he didn't complain. Before you ask yes he won a prize. The hotel has long since closed and has now been turned into luxury apartments.

So where ever you are in the world if you are celebrating today have a wonderful time but don't drink too much of the black stuff!!

Great costume! Too bad we don't have a reason to do that here, maybe for Halloween.
I will probably ONLY have the black stuff as I am snowed in and Guinness was the only thing I had the forsight to stock up on ahead of time. (At least I remembered the most important thing!)

beccy I think we were all rather pleased if I remember.

asha thank I saw lots of celebration and a little parade in Spain before we left yesterday everyone was in fine 'spirits'

lisa you are making me shiver talking about snow when I have just returned from the sunshine. I have to say I actually don't like the taste of guinness but it goes well with beef in a casserole.


Thank you to everyone for the compliments about the costume. I even surprised myself at how inventive I was and the make shift sewing just about kept everything together thank goodness!!
