Oh, writing a blog now is she? Notions.

Trying to explain the concept of 'notions' to anyone outside of Ireland is quite hard. A bit like in Friends when Chandler tries to teach Joey how to use air quotes... I'm "sorry". This uniquely Irish obscurity became obvious after I explained the general gist to a German friend who then began enthusiastically using 'notions' to describe people ordering drinks at the bar. 'Notions' is typically used to describe those who get above their station, such as that neighbour who calls their driveway an Avenue. However, 'Notions' can also mean to have an abundance of opinions or to have an urge to do something.  So, in this, I've taken a notion to write a blog.
