Still here....

Bet you're wondering if I'm still here!

Ummmm....sorta.....!

The computer has been playing silly b-....misbehaving, and raised my blood-pressure to stratospheric levels, so I stayed away from it for a while. Its still being annoyingly slow and un-cooperative...

Eldest returned to Dublin on Tuesday and is working hard, lots of light designs and playing with Theater spaces. As the Dublin Fringe Festival starts soon, so she won't have time to get into any mischief for the moment!

Unfortunately, before she left she helped to tidy the kitchen and we are missing a few things, namely the pepper pot and the Medicine box. You might think that's funny, but youngest and I are a bit put out!

Middl'st has spent the week in Donegal working with her new job, and is exhausted apparently. She's back tonight late, so we'll see her tomorrow. She's due to have her tonsils out soon, just to add to the fun and games.

Youngest returns to School on Tuesday for Transition Year. This happens in fourth year of Secondary School in many schools in Ireland where the students do a lot of extra-curricular activities and life skills, as well as four weeks of work-experience. Some students do as little as possible during the year, others embrace all the unusual activities and go at it 'hammer and tongs'! Youngest is really looking forward to it, and has her name down for a bizarre array of subject areas!!

The Hub had the second part of his annual leave cancelled this week so MUCH bad temper from yours' truly; I'm back at school next week too, Harvest and Christmas Music to get on with and of course I think I should be free when he has leave...ah well, bummers galore!

Youngest is cleaning the upstairs ready for a Slumber Party tomorrow night- whoop-di-doo! a clean upstairs!! And I've been weeding the veg beds ready for the winter crops to go in- all 'go' in this place, I tell ya!!

As always, so good to hear from you. Your daughter's transition year sounds like a great experience. What are some of the things she'll be doing?

We're just back from a week at the Edinburgh Festival. I managed to squeeze 21 shows into 6 days (DH managed a few more late night events) and now I need a rest! I hope the Dublin Festival goes well - will you manage to get there to see any of the shows?
