Champagne St Patrick´s Day


Have you celebrated St Patrick´s Day this weekend? Been to a St Paddy´s party? I bet you must´ve Champagne St Patrick´s Dayseen more pints of Guinness or Murphy´s around than in one whole year. So, champagne and St Patrick´s Day on the same sentence might sound a bit odd to you. It all makes perfect sense though.

You see? I was at home today in this rainy day and I actually felt more like a traditional Irish stew than a pint of black beer. It´s not all about drinking, do you agree?

So, I went off to have a hot lunch.

Then, there they were. On top of the chest of drawers, next to the flowers and the laptop. They were looking in my direction, staring at me as a matter of fact.

I had no choice.

I needed to do a bit of work on the computer. Neither prevented the other from actually happening. I could just do it quickly before switching the laptop back on.

So, I had my champagne truffle for dessert today. It felt good. I don´t even like black beer (certainly not the one sold in London). I am actually starting to fall for this trend in London, and like bubbly.

I have found some pictures of St Patrick´s Day which are not your usual Paddy´s Day pictures. Enjoy!

  1. I do love that leprechaun outfit they are all wearing. I will have to hunt one down for next year. 😉
