Books, movies, podcasts, recipes and exercise routines are now more important in our lives than ever before.  They’re keeping us sane during these insane times.

So here’s the weekly cultural round-up from #TeamAlice.  This week, we’ve been:


Listening To:


  • The free Libraries Ireland eBooks app, BorrowBox, which allows you to borrow eBooks and eAudiobooks free from your library.
  • The Palace of Versailles app – for some virtual tourism.

  • A patchwork blanket for newly-arrived cousin Hugo (that’s Emma!).


  • Comfort food like roast butternut squash, lasagne, veggie chilli, lamb tagine and carrot cake – with shout-outs to Miguel Barclay and GKStories on Instagram for recipes and general food-porn; and WellFest alumnus Max La Manna for his zero-waste cooking demos (perfect for reducing our trips to the shops!).

Escaping To:

Looking Forward To:

  • Nialler9’s music quiz, taking place on YouTube this Sunday.
  • House Party and Zoom gatherings with friends over the weekend.
  • Making progress on our lockdown jigsaws 🙂

Stay safe and sane, everyone – and have as good a weekend as you possibly can!
