International Women's Day 2017
I arrived into work yesterday to a flower on my keyboard from one of my German colleagues. How sweet was that.
A great way to start the day I can tell you!
I had wanted to get up to O'Connell Street on my lunch break to support the Strike for Repeal protest. Unfortunately I had meetings booked practically right through. In fact when I came into work I noted that literally my last spare half hour without a meeting had been booked up overnight. So I couldn't go...but, considering the attendance and the photos from the event it was a huge turnout so my one little no show did not impact! I did however wear black as requested to show my support for the Repeal the 8th Amendment agenda (something I think you know I am passionate about).
And then later that day we had ice-cream in work!
It was a pretty good Women's Day all in.
