I am down in my holiday home for a one month holiday. I am hoping the weather will improve again as this week has been a little wet.
I pack my car to the brim and myself and rocky head down. I bring most of my house because I love to cook, read cookbooks, paint, do yoga and play tennis.
It does take a little time to get used to being on your own and yet in many ways it is a good thing that maybe we should all do from time to time. Of course my husband comes down at the weekend and for holidays which is a great thing.
Last weekend was busy here with a triathlon and a food festival so it was a very busy village indeed.
We planted the garden so it flowers slightly later than Dublin so the garden is just about to come into full flower and looks great.
Hope you are having a good summer.
We went to Elbow concert unfortunately it was outdoors but the rain was light. It was held in The Royal Hospital Kilmainham a gorgeous venue.
They are playing at Glastonbury this weekend.
Sunshine in the garden
A new purchase from the food fair . The leaves are very silvery in reality.
It is a lovely sunny weekend and I am lucky to be at our summer home . It's a busy weekend down here with a triathlon taking place and also the lovely food fair takes place on Sunday. So if you are in the area I would recommend a visit.
Both my children are away so it is a very empty house. We are like Darbey and Joan rattling round .
I have a busy week of packing ahead as I will be down here for over a month but looking forward to walks, tennis, yoga and maybe even the odd swim. Of course I will also include lots of alfresco dinners and some wine.
Hope you are having a lovely summer.
Here are some things I'm liking at the moment
Love this photo my son sent to his sister for her birthday. It was first day of school so many years ago. Happy Birthday Zoe.
Lots of walks here this weekend.
This is how to dress stylishly when pregnant. Stacey kiebler she always looks so chic and stylish. Kardashians take note.
This is a look I love. I am a stripes lady in the summer. But I love the bag.
I'm back at last it took a little extended leave as my son was going to America for the summer sp I had a lot of organising to do.
I never thought I would say this but I miss his runners fired inside the front door, sweatshirt thrown on the couch, dishes not put in the dishwasher. The house is so quite and empty without him but I'm sure he's having fun and not missing his mother.
Our holiday was simply perfect so relaxing . The weather was slightly mixed in the second week but that was nothing to the rain we came back too. The resort is perfect for a couple it is quite, luxurious and not far from the town of Carvario . It is situated beside a small beach and has 3 small pools . I enjoyed using the spa and had reflexology and Indian head massage.
I even cooked in a couple of evenings which I have never done before but the sea view from our room was so gorgeous we did not want to go out. Giant prawns in garlic with chilled rose what more could you ask for.
I hope you are all well and I look forward to catching up and commenting on my favourite blogs soon.
