Off to Jo and Maeve’s house

Filed under: Short Trips — chris @ 2:16 pm

Me: Jim might collect us in a small car with no roof.
Brigid: “what if it rains?”
That’s my gal.
Followed by “only Jim. No Jo and Maeve. Huh. Boring!” ;)

Last Friday (June bank holiday) Ellie had beaver camp and Brigid wasn’t allowed stay so it was “only fair” that the rest of us camped out back of house.
Worked a treat.. Both the camping and the small campers.
First time trying Quechua popup tent properly.
Video here for my ref!!!!!

Ended up in Killarney with gandad and geocaching and under a sunny rhodie bush in muckross:)

Visiting Auntie Hilary

Filed under: Family Life, Short Trips — les @ 6:49 pm

We spent a lovely week in the Cotswolds this week, staying in the village of Alderton in a “once upon a time” house (fairy tale house!) see here. We were only a couple of miles from auntie Hilary which was great, and Joanne and Maeve came too! (they brought their parents as well!)

Activities included lunch in Hilary’s with 5 something nices!, bottle feeding kid goats, holding baby chicks, visiting a witches groto and trick or treating, and pony riding! I think they will be going back to school for a rest!

Hopefully I’ll update this with more details when time allows, but here are some photos for starters:









Mustn’t forget the spoon of news, the pepper pot of turn and the toilet roll of story;)

Brigid said “I’m not going to ask till we get to the holiday house” followed one minute later by a long sigh and “It’s a LONG way to Kerry!”
