Today.

This morning I spent at the annual Home Birth Conference.
Every year it's so lovely to see the same faces, and lots of new, hopeful ones. I catch up with people I only ever see there, and others I don't see enough of. I hear amazing birth stories and outrageous tales of brushes with the 'medical' world. I see the amazing people who work long hard hours to put it on, and the rest of us who come along, listen, chat, eat and, hopefully, buy. Thank you all you wonderful people. The world needs you.

Later on I went to pick up The Eldest in Bray where he was 'peggin' around the beach with his friends.



After the last two days of temperatures up to 15C, it was COLD! The wind cut through you.



But it was refreshing after being in a crowded hall all morning.



Aren't kids amazing! The cold just didn't bother them.



They even had icecream...

The beach is always an adventure. Has anyone ever put a message in a bottle? Who knows where it might end up? Pitcairn Island? Papua New Guinea? Portugal? Portmarnock beach?

Hey! That's definitely something for Dandelion Songs! Thanks!

My son actually prefers the cold. He is warm and sweaty the rest of the time. I think little ones run hot.

The sea and sky look beautiful. I thought Bray was all stony, but I guess those pictures are taken down near the hillside.

Lovely.
