Greatitudes 405-417

It's been a happy, clappy strawberry weekend! And sunny, sunny, so sunny, so not typically northern Irishly sunny but lovely! So obviously we rushed straight to the beach with wetsuits (sunny, but water still and always glacial) and suns' first bodyboards, bought in preparation for The Approaching Annual Adventure.

Then later we left the house without suns. I know! We dropped past Cooking Catherine's with small birthday things, on our way into town with neither plan nor purpose! So fifty percent of them came too, and we ended up eventually, after a meandering through the fabulous cathedral Quarter, at Bert's Bar. Driver's No-jito- you have to be here drinking this before the turning of the next millenium.

And all day yesterday we pottered around Ireland's biggest Christian festival- not quite Glasto, but actually there will be more of Glasto-ness later in the summer- plans for crochet daisy chain headbands are afoot/ahand/ahead...

Happy, clappy, sunny strawberry weekend- oh the sheer joy of listening to the Rend Collective Experiment. We've just downloaded the Organic Family Hymnal so will be listening to them indefinitely!

love the music!

Sounds like wonderful times. . .we have enjoyed our sunny, clappy weather too! Maybe we love it so much because, we know it won't last for long?!?!

G'day. Sounds like you had a great time. That water sounds jolly cold to me, wetsuit or not. Take care. Liz...

It all sounds very fine--especially the wetsuits and crocheted daisies-to-be. So glad it was a glorious weekend, Mags!
