hit pics, november 23 twenty twelve

Before I left Ireland, I was determined to get at least a START on my Christmas shopping
So in between filming scenes for the Ireland episode of RHYTHMS & ROOTS I would wander off and check stuff out
(and obviously get caught doing it, as this photo shows)Then once we were done yesterday, I met up with Mum for a late lunch/early dinner
Or as we like to call it….wine!

Then we staggered out into the awesomeness that is Grafton Street at Christmas-time
And guess who got all her Christmas shopping done? in her drunken state
I FUCKING DID!

I mean, I don’t really remember what I got anyone. But I gave them all to Mum to take back to Australia for me, so I don’t even have to post that shit!!
Am I winning or what?
I didn’t get Diamond and the girls done yet
But I am headed home today, oh my fucking god I feel like I’ve been away forever! so that’s totally an early Christmas present for them

And the best present EVER for me.

cop-u-later!

I know you already know this, but…you guys….it’s DONE!

That’s right, WEEK SEVEN!!
Yes, the tour is over….but it’s a gift that keeps on giving
I haven’t  looked at half the pictures that you’ve taken, OR I’ve taken
For now, I’ll just post a few here that I have stolen seen so far

I do plan to do a tour wrap up and also post an update on how the  filming is going this week for the RHYTHMS & ROOTS Ireland episode. (Yes Ireland peeps…..we’re STILL HERE!)

I’m also going to try and squeeze some Christmas shopping somewhere in there too
It may sound a bit overwhelming….but I’ve got that shit covered
I’m also typing this from the pub
So yeah, this mole’s in control baby!
