Sometimes Dear Reader we have to do what is expected of us. And so it came to pass that TG and I found ourselves spending a couple of days in Ireland – where I had not been for 5 years (as my Mother has reminded me at length). We travelled a couple of hours south from my old home for a day out to Dunmore East where we spent holidays as children and to where I had not been for over 30 years!
It’s a pretty little spot and very Irish
And brought back many memories of holidays which consisted of beach, hotel pool and chips. It was a nice reminisce and we even had sunshine which was one thing that I didn’t remember! We also visited a rather lovely Wicklow public garden which made for a peaceful meander.
It was just the thing before we had part two of our holiday in Amsterdam (more of that another time)
Sublime and ridiculous came to mind! It was a nice short break which included in no particular order, Guinness, tree felling and wood chopping (not unlike being at home) before we sallied forth to Holland which was a different kettle of fish altogether…..
