It’s no secret that The Lyric is one of my favourite places to be. Even more so when I’m there to enjoy some musical theatre from Blunt Fringe.

A TRIP TO DONEGAL

There’s something profound about the impact leaving your environment has on how you relate to your environment when you return. There’s also something profoundly fun about going somewhere nice! Dan and I are LivingSocial superfans and we got a great deal on one of our favourite hotels for Christmas. Using it on Valentines weekend seemedContinue reading “A TRIP TO DONEGAL”
