Trip to Ireland’s first Starbucks !

picture5Well, G and I have just returned from my first visit to Northern Ireland’s first Starbucks ! It’s in Antrim, which is about half an hour’s drive from Belfast, and is situated at a new outlet mall called Junction One. The mall itself is a bit rubbish like all outlet places – there’s no really good shops, although there is a Ralph Lauren store if you like that kind of thing (which I don’t !). Thing I always find about outlet malls is that the stuff in them is either a) completely horrible or b) only available in XXXXL.

So, I haven’t posted for a while – have been quite busy out filming for the Portaferry documentary I’m working on, so haven’t been up to much else. I got my new phone this week which is so much better than my last one, although I’m still getting to grips with it !

This Saturday night, G, David and I are off to Milk, where they’re having a barbecue. Hopefully it will be good, there’s always pretty ladies there, so that will be something to look forward to ! And the elusive gym bird might be there as well ! By the way, if you’re wondering why my face is so red in the top photograph – it must be sunburn. I didn’t think it was that red, but there you go. It is !
