I can't do anything about the number of hours I'm required to be at work, but for the rest I want to take advantage of the longer evenings and all too fleeting Irish summer and spend as much time as I can outside in the garden and the magical surrounding countryside.
A little while ago Megan from Storybook Love Affair asked if I write any stories besides keeping this blog. I haven't written anything for a long time, but some of my recent posts and the wonderful people I've met through the blog have made me feel enthusiastic about writing again. Perhaps I'll find a tree to sit under and scribble away.
I hope you will forgive me if I don't come by to visit as frequently as I usually do.
I also hope that you will come back to visit me when I return.
In the meantime
