Happy New Year and Barberstown Castle High Tea

I'm back in the New Zealand sun after six months in Ireland, Spain, England, Egypt and China - and I wondered why I didn't post as much as I normally do! I flew out of Ireland on the 26th of December - the original plan was to fly out that day and hopefully get a load of seats to myself but due to the poor weather - the plane was packed!  I spent the next few days in Shanghai and flew home on the 1st. Welcoming sun and BM at the airport meant a great start to 2011.

The pix below are from a high tea at Barberstown Castle.  A 13th century castle in Co. Kildare, Ireland.  I stopped by in September on a (as they say in New Zealand) a tiki tour around parts of Ireland.

I have a ton of photographs to share from the last six months (and some from even before then! eek!) but won't be putting much pressure on myself to get them up!

I hope you all have a wonderful 2011.

  1. I loved seeing the pictures of high tea in an Irish castle - so elegant and atmospheric! Wishing you a very Happy New Year! Helen x

  2. Wishing you a wonerful new year :) Glad your back in New Zealand safely, heard the weather is lovely and warm there. It was very chilly here last night and this morning around -2, you'd think we would be use to it considering it reached -16 here the week before last. I'm jealous of you there in the sunshine :)

    All things nice...

  3. Great to have you back on line. Have a very happy 2011.
