Summer is coming!

One of my reasons for losing weight was that I had a wardrobe of clothes that didn't fit me. I was dammed if I was going to spend a fortune on new larger ones. Now, almost two stone lighter I find that I HAVE to buy new ones as they still don't fit me. But hey, its sooooo much easier to have to buy clothes because my own are too big.
So that was what brought me to Blanchardstown Shopping Centre on a glorious afternoon when I really should have been out in my garden. I decided to get the shopping part over and done with as quickly as possible.
So unlike me.
I was approaching the far end of the centre when my ears heard a very familiar sound. My heart started to pump and I got butterflies in my stomach. It was the rousing strains of
A Song of Fire and Ice
a piece well known to all Game of Thrones fans/fanatics.
I rounded the corner to be greeted by....... The Throne!!!

Okay so it wasn't the ACTUAL throne, but it was a darn good replica. Of course there was the sign that said it you parted with your hard earned cash you could sit on it and get your photo taken.
Who would be so gullible?
Why, ME of course!

I took my place in the queue and was amazed at the number of children who were dying to get their photos taken. I hope it was just because it's a real cool throne and not because they are fans of the show!
My geek dream came true....

An afternoon of shopping and GoT. 
Could this day have been any better?


  1. I had to enlarge the photo to get a better look at the dishy sitter, all will be better next week when I get my new specs.
    So did you buy a new bikini Nols ;-) xx
