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.

Wet Dublin

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.

Some lavender to plant

The garden is certainly green

This is what I plan on wearing this weekend.
