It's not been a good day for Thomas today. Not only did he have to go to the barbers he also had to go shopping tonight for a new school coat. But, as compensation for the trauma we bought him new PJ bottoms to add to his stash.
I've done all my ironing and surprisingly just one load of washing for the holidays. Probably because the offspring haven't really been dressed all week.
While I was at the van I started another pastel poncho because they were the only colours I had with me. In between crocheting up the colourful one I've managed to finish it off.
I'm quite pleased with my fancy pants border. The colourful one will come with me to Ireland and by the time I get back I expect it will be finished.
I'm also planning on taking the laptop but just in case there are any problems here's where we are going.
We'll be staying on Little Island or Waterford Island as it's become known at Number 38 and the only way on and off is by a ferry which should be fun. For some reason I can't load a photo of the island but it's not very big.
This is the castle on the island. You can stay her but we opted for the self-catering lodges which suit us better. It's open to everybody though, apart from the Saturday we arrive as there's a wedding on. We'll be settling in that day anyway and there'll be plenty of time to visit in the week.
One of these 3 bed lodges will be our home for the next week.
We've booked a falconry lesson for Thomas and Amy and Mark has clay pigeon shooting on his agenda. There is also a golf course, tennis courts, croquet lawn and a little beach so maybe a paddle will be in order for us.
Not sure I'll be posting tomorrow so if not, hopefully we'll be able to meet up over a Guinness very soon.
