Yesterday was spent mostly being a Birthday Girl.
In many ways it was an archetypal Orlaith-Birthday. The morning was spent sipping coffee and chilling out. The afternoon saw a purchase of art (a gorgeous mermaid sculpture) and me enjoying a good Cosmopolitan. Was fed & watered by the neighbours in the evening, complete with lovely fizzy, much laughter and swapping of stories.
I went to Reids Palace Hotel for the Cosmopolitan. It was unchanged; the place is filled with C-list royalty (the kind that pad the pages of Hello - not that I read it you understand). The overheard conversation is typically "What was the Japanese ambassador´s wife´s name again?" There was probably an ambassador´s reception going on somewhere. Filled with people being spoiled with ferrero rocher.
In any case, the cocktail was fab, as was the view. A lovely day!
