Happy New Year mamas! To help banish January Blues we’ve teamed up with @firstfortnight , the mental health arts festival that runs for the first two weeks of January (get it?!) They’ve given us 2 pairs of tickets to Sally Denver Matthews, a humorous one woman show on the plight of being a first time mum! Sally + Stephen + 2 bottles of Malbec = Heidi. Gilly O Shea’s popular one-woman exploration of motherhood returns with a twist... An unexpected pregnancy has changed Sally’s life. But at least she still gets to see her friends (in photos) and to wash her hair (but not condition it). Mum, mam, mutter… whatever you go by, it’s the most difficult job you’ll ever have. This time Sally would like new parents to hear her story without having to book a babysitter, so B.Y.O.B. (Bring Your Own Baby) to the ‘Mammy Matinees’. Dads/ guardians are welcome too. No baby? No problem! Come to an evening show. Thu 3 Jan - Sat 5 Jan, 2.30pm / Wed 2 Jan - Sat 5 Jan, 7.30pm Smock Alley Theatre. The two pairs of tickets are for the shows in Smock Alley Theatre valid 2nd -5th Jan. Simply tag a mama you’d love to bring with you below to be in the draw. #mumsofinstagram #maternalmentalhealth #banishjanuaryblues #mumssupportingmums #comedy #competition #smockalleytheatre
The final competition in the M Word's Big Festive Giveaway is the perfect stocking filler, as we’ve got 5 copies of @officialtommedian new DVD ‘Under the Influence’ up for grabs! The legendary and hilarious Irish comedian bring us all the mighty madness from his show at the Water Rats Venue, Kings Cross, London. As if receiving instructions from a strange and distant star, Tommy Tiernan takes to the stage refusing to take anything seriously. This new show is all about the heroism of everyday life and the huge effort it takes just to survive the ordinary. Dancing round the stage like a hunchbacked Mick Jagger and using language like the drunken offspring of Patrick Kavanagh and St Brigid, he weaves a tapestry of chaos, empathy and life loving wit. Funny true stories and wild imaginings go hand in hand in this latest offering from this particular failed priest. For your enjoyment only! Tommy Tiernan ‘Under The Influence’ is a fab stocking filler (€14.99) and is on sale now from all good retails stores nationwide. To win one of our 5 copies up for grabs just comment below!
