Not certain if y’all know this yet (can an Irish girl who lives in Tipp even get away with saying y’all? – fuck it, I like it!)   Y’AAAALLLLLLLLL   Getting back in track…   I am not certain how common knowledge it is in this big ol’ world of ours but I am pregnant. Yes, the husband a...

Surf holiday 2018 Part Deux

Category : RANT, Sea, SPORT, Travel

When does a holiday become not-a-holiday?   I have been receiving messages from my fans about maybe writing part two of my Surf Holiday blog 2018 and have been inundated with PMs asking me what happened to puppy Linda… So here it is!  Part Deux. I would just like to say one thing about the flight on Arabica Air.  You st...

Surf holiday 2018 Day Fecking One

Category : Beach, RANT, Surf, Travel

Or… How important is it to have a towel/correct towel on holidays/in life. Packing is a good way to start any holiday!  Automatically assuming that there would be a towel/serval towels at surf holiday accommodation.  I always travel light with as much inappropriate, non-practical clothing as I can fit into my hand (job) lugg...

Get the F*#K up!

Category : LIFE, RANT

I am bad at getting out of bed.   It’s not that I am not a morning person (my husband is not a morning person, his whole family are not morning people. Makes me fell like I am super duper good at getting up!) Sorry, where was I? Oh yeah, it’s not that I am not a morning person, it’s just so hard. Hard to move ...

Women’s Day?

Category : RANT, SPORT

This is a first post from amateur jockey and professional academic Emma Lyons – another remarkable woman we’ve added to the stable of cliché-crunching, stereotype-stomping bloggers in the Princess Pit! Here she gets the bit between her teeth about the sport of racing, and how women still have many hurdles to face, when...

No Holding Back

Category : FOOD, LIFE, RANT, SPORT

No Holding Back… This is a topic that repeatedly comes up in conversation between friends and so I thought I’d try and get it down on paper. I am originally from Kildare and went to school in Dublin. I played plenty of sports: hockey, tennis, swimming, horse riding. Admittedly I was below average at all of them and I...

Prisoner to my weight…

Category : FOOD, RANT, SPORT

I’m tired. Tired of wanting to be thinner, tired of training and then feeling like I can’t have that big hunk of Toblerone, tired of counting calories, watching everything I eat, pouring litres of water into me, trying to eat less carbs, more protein, no sugar! Tired of being bombarded with weightloss stories, “best...

Holidays – Giving Yourself A Break

Category : RANT, SPORT

So it’s the Sunday before I go back to work and I am here on my couch, enjoying the last of the Christmas biscuits (which are delicious by the way) and I feel both proud and ashamed. Before the break I had high hopes of keeping up with my training programme while back at my folks. I had time to rest and train. I would really im...

Changing my life and getting fit…

Category : RANT, SPORT

This is a post I wrote about 8 months ago on my old blog. I’m reposting it because a) it’s a topic close to my heart and b) weightloss and changing one’s fitness has not been addressed yet and I feel it’s important. So on that note I hope you enjoy this post 🙂  PS: Image was taken by the super talented Cor...

A Class Act

Category : RANT, SPORT

Going to class is about more than learning. It’s about connecting with people, something that an online classes just can’t give you. I was driven to write this article after I read an online article about yoga teaching and how hard it is. It went into the horrible scenario of injured yoga teachers who had to carry on te...
