The week started brilliantly with the arrival of 2 friends, Miriam and Jimmy.
They stayed until Thursday as they tried a few times to get through the snow and ice to their home up the mountain.
Somewhere up there to the left!
It was a real treat having them stay here and we had some great chats and laughs.
They are great people and run Build Your Own Wind Turbine workshops in Ballinamore and an annual 10 day workshop in Gort that attracts people from around the world.
On Tuesday they became grandparents again when one of Jimmy’s daughters had her first child. They are now on their way to Cork and still haven’t seen their mountain home since before Christmas.
I loved being a hostess and cooking. I find cooking very relaxing and love to try new recipes on people … and Miriam and Jimmy were quite happy to try my offerings … even the Thai Green Curry with pasta instead of rice!
I also did a fair bit of work on the pr for my Feb 6 and 7 Blogsite Design Workshops and have a booking already!
I’m looking forward to more bookings when the Visual Arts Ireland enewsletter comes out next Tuesday. Nearly 50% of my previous workshop people booked after they read about it in the newsletter.
All the excitement of packing and moving and Christmas and lovely visitors … was bound to catch up with me.
Very tired the last day or so … and because I can … I’ve been having Duvet Days.
Having a lovely time roaming online and reading and taking naps and eating healthy food … and not planning or organising or thinking … just drifting happily.
Will feel fab tomorrow and get sorted to go into town and do some chores and take Coco for a long long walk. She did get to run around the field next door today and then she was quite happy to loll with me.
It’s the New/Dark Moon tonight … great for wishing and beginning new ideas and projects.
Have a wonderful weekend.
p.s Happy Birthday to my Mum and Dad tomorrow. I’ll be ringing Oz to say hi. When I was a kid that’s how I thought parents got together … someone matched people by birthdays. It’s as good a way as any I suppose.
