ferns-1I think that these last two weeks have to have been the coldest that I remember since moving to Ireland.
Or perhaps I just have a short memory..  Anyhow, it has been down to about -7 degrees during the nights (and only +11 in the shop during the days).  As cold as it is though, it’s very dry and sunny – more so than it was all summer I think!

Mum re-discovered my warm Finnish winter boots hidden, unused and neglected, under her bed – and I have been very pleased to see them again! Maybe if it carries on, I will have to dig out my ice-skates from on top of my wardrobe and  skate on the lake!! Whoohooo…

Tuesday evening went to stay with Miguel & Monica. We spent the day with Monica in the ministry while Miguel was in Bethel, and then had Monica’s homemade Gnocci & Tiramisu (not together of course!).

confusedOver the past three or four months, I have been trying to blog regularly for our Chocolate Heaven website at work.  I have managed 45 posts so far, and I am running out of ideas!

If any of you out there are Chocoholics, or have any wonderful brainwaves that I can use, I would really appreciate it!!!


Pitch ‘N’ Putt and Wet Feet.. November 16, 2008

dsc002341This afternoon I went with Alison to Ballymore to play Pitch N Putt… We had the whole place to ourselves for most of the time – not surprising as the place was covered in leaves, and VERY swampy!

It was a lovely afternoon – warm (for November anyway), no wind at all, and gorgeous autumn colours all around. It was just that the ground was so wet that we were squelching our way from one hole to the next!! We even had to dig out some of the balls from the mud where they landed, and some of the actual holes were completely filled with water!web analytics
