A Week of Pictures.

Up all night with a sickly babe.



In the morning I step outside into the garden, an arm-full of freshly laundered towels to hang out,
and I stand in the morning light, the sun burning away the cooling mist.
I breathe.
And I listen.



To the sea as it hushes over stones.
Rooks on my rooftop.
The bell tolling in the village.

We have a lovely day ahead of us!

In a mixed up kind of way, this is a peek at the last few days we had.

And it feels like a Sunday!





Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Ha.. no idea what's going on, but I love the 2nd photo from the bottom!

Happy St. Patrick's Day to you as well. :)

Wistfully wishing to somehow be your neighbor... even for a day!

*BIG sigh*

Happy Saint Patrick's Day to you!

Hmm.. yes I guess I should have mentioned that Erin! Ru had a fancy dress birthday party to go to on Sunday and he and his friend went as gangsters. Finn appointed herself as hair and make-up dept. She had to persuade them at first...

Circe, we had a lovely day with sunshine and a parade in Greystones that is very old-fashioned and local compared to the one in the bigger cities, which is just the way we like it. It's such a shame Billy wasn't up to it as he would have loved all the vintage tractors and fire-engines. There's always next year though!

Hope Billy is on the mend and ready for more action soon.

We stayed local too, some of the kids had fun! Cal thought it was the best parade ever!

Looks like you had a great St. Paddy's Day. Thomas had fun too, at his first ever parade in Grange.

Looks like a great day - fab pics! We celebrated also with green face paint for the child, and guinness for the adults.

Hope your wee one is feeling much better.

Circe said...

Meant, too, to send wellness wishes to your sweet babe...

What a fantastic family you have! "To the sea as it hushes over stones." - sounds beautiful and relaxing.
