Not sure where the time is going … did a tender for some work … editing a workbook for an Oz mate … helping an artist friend set up a blog to showcase his work … went with Gabriel to photograph a few new cottages … Mags cut and coloured my hair and did a fab job … playing with Coco … talked to one of my brothers … chatted to my Pa via vidcam … read a few books … had a lovely chat with Trina …
turf stacked … and you can see the turf wall in the background
turf is then covered in reeds that grow by the road side
One of the cottages that I photographed for Gabriels Irish Cottages for Sale site is right beside a gorgeous river … big trees overhanging … a little bridge.
I’d love to live by water and if I had a car I wouldn’t mind being isolated … I love my own company … and Coco’s … as long as I can get broadband … I’m happy.
Tomorrow Mags and I are having a party for all our dogs to celebrate the anniversary of Coco turning up … she was abandoned down a lane here and Mags saved her … and I got to keep her.
I can see all the people who don’t own dogs rolling their eyes … yup … I can hear you saying ‘mad women … they’re only dogs’
Wash your mouth!
My Coco is a big bundle of pretty much unadulterated love and happiness … and I don’t think even a zen monk can be in the moment quite like a dog.
So tomorrow Mags and I are having a party.
I had my first babysitting job last Sunday and got to play with Zoe Priors Harry … dote child.
Zoe’s sister got married on Saturday and it’s a tradition in this town to party over about 3 days … and they did.
At the same time I also looked after Elaine’s 10 day old son and 4 year old daughter … both wonderful children.
Gee … newborns are … very very small. He just slept and woke a few times so I gave him his bottle and back to sleep he went.
I really enjoyed spending time with the kids (I can still hear Harry’s chuckling as I read them a book where we had to yell ” He’s behind you!!’ … big bad wolf.).
More editing to do tomorrow and of course … Coco’s party.
Hope your week is going well.
