A Game of Tag.

I've been tagged by the marvelous Esti.

What is your current obsession: House, house, house...

What are you wearing now: Favourite new green and white thrifted skirt (€10),  blue top from Dunnes, very cosy but worn-to-bits Noa Noa white mohair cardie, petrol-blue tights from Top Shop, knee-high boots from Blowfish, three rings, necklace, earrings...

Who was the last person you hugged: My Only Girl when she came in from Hip-hop.

If you were a tree, what tree would you be: a Robinia freesia.

What's for dinner: fish and chips.

What was the last thing you bought: a movie- Horseman on the Roof. Been wanting it for years. See it! 

What are you listening to right now: well, the older two are watching X-Men 2 so... But current musical sounds are Cathy DaveyBon Iver and Taken By Trees.

What is your favourite weather: depends on my mood. Sunshine is always welcome, but I do love a good mist.

What is on your bedside table: The Book of Lost Things by John Connolly, a notebook, a glass and a Transformer...

What is your most challenging goal right now: to be a mindful mother.

Say something to the person who tagged you: I admire your dedication, your imagination and your talent!

 If you could have a house totally paid for, fully furnished, where do you want it to be: I'm happy where I am... although I wouldn't say no to a house in the Burnaby in Greystones...
Favourite vacation spot: Lough Key Forest Park, Boyle, Co. Roscommon, circa 1981...

Name the things you cannot live without: my beloveds, my family, my friends. Music, inspiration, beauty. Risotto...

What would you like to have in your hands right now: Jay's hands.

What is your favourite tea flavour: Lady Grey.

What would you like to get rid of: ignorance.

If you could go anywhere in the world for the next hour, where would you go: Gibralter... but only because Jay is there, I actually know very little about it! Otherwise, Auburn Alabama to see my sister, Emma.

If you could have your portrait painted/made by any famous artist from any era, who would you choose: Mucha.

The rules:
1. Respond and rework: answer the questions on your blog, replace one question you dislike with a question of your own invention, add one more question of your own. 
2. Tag eight other un-tagged people.

This is who I'd love to play tag with. If they'd like to!

Lisa, Amber, Jo, Mimi, CirceJaboopee, underthebigbluesky, & Aden!

Photos from today.

what a lovely place you have here, i found you through Aden.
You have such great style.

Annah said...

When I read that you would like to have Jay's hand in your hand I started to cry. I am so emotional these days.... I think it is because I am no longer breastfeeding Saul. my emtions are all over the place......
Beautiful images of chalk drawings. XxA

Esti said...

Your answers have made me smile. Thanks for the music tips, you have a great taste for music, and I'm gonna check out the one I didn't know. I haven't been to Gibraltar, but for what I hear, it's not a very exciting place...
Have a good wednesday, ciara.

Lisa Conmara said...

I have been to Gibraltar Ciara, and I know you, and I can tell you now, even if Jay was there dressed as a gypsy king, with tickets to the best show in town, YOU would HATE IT!!! It is horrible... However twenty minutes up the road and I'm sure you and Jay could find a lovely little spanish restaurant... ;-)

Amber said...

I must play along in the next few days. Thanks for tagging me...how fun..xxx

Pamela Terry and Edward said...

Oh, gosh, thanks! I hope it's not like real TAG where you lose if you're slow... ;) Been off the computer for apparently too long the past 24...

I shall do my best!
