A very good Friday

Things are a lot better for us today. A lot calmer. We had a terrific day. The weather here was beautiful today. I spent the day at my parents house out in their garden. Nitro was in his element, he really enjoyed being out in the garden running around. My sister came with the kids and we all had a fun time. Tomorrow mom and us and our sister and the kids are going to the beach and doing a BBQ on the beach. I’m looking forward to it. I’m also looking forward to a long walk on the beach, and a big 99 icecream cone on the way home. I promised the kids I’d get them an ice cream cone with a chocolate flake in it. The BBQ should be fun. We’re going to BBQ sausages. The weather for the rest of this weekend is supposed to be fabulous. Its my cousins birthday tomorrow, I got her a card and am giving her some money and a lottery ticket. Mom and me and my sister were going to go to my aunts today to drop her presents and cards off to her but then my sister was too tired so we never ended up going. My other aunt whose moms other sister called this evening and I spent some time chatting to her and mom which was cool. I’ve also been burning cd’s all day onto my computer. I am trying to rip all of my music and rip all of my movies and its going to take me forever lol. I have so many you see. My new dvd’s and cd’s i got on ebay havent arrived yet. I’m anxiously waiting for them to arrive. Maybe they’ll come on Monday. I hope you’ve all had a good day today. What are your plans for the weekend?

The word of the week is disney. So I decided to write about my trips to disney world in florida. I’ve been there twice. Both times were so much fun. Disneyworld has now become like one of my safe places to go to when I feel stressed. I think of myself lying in the hammock at the carribean beach resort that is where we stayed and I feel grounded. Everything about the trip was cool. I went with my partner Jess. It was very expensive but well worth the expense. We booked the disney dining plan. You had to book all the restaurants in advance, I mean months in advance. We chose to do character dining so we got to meet and greet the characters and have pictures taken with them. It was so much fun going on all of the rides. And watching all of the shows. Like I said we stayed on the disney property, in one of their resorts, and every day we’d take the bus to the parks. One day we spent in downtown disney shopping and seeing a movie. The week went by so fast. The food was so delicious. I got to try a mickey waffle, and a mickey icecream. I got myself a charm bracelet and I bought tons of charms to go on it. All reminders of the lovely time I had while there.

spent the day at the beach

today i went to kinsale with my mom and my sister and her kids. the weather was supposed to be around 17 degrees c, thats 62 degrees f. however, i dont think it got past 14. it was clouded over and there was a bit of a wind chill but we still enjoyed ourselves. we brought a picnic lunch with us. the kids had great fun building sand castles and they even went in the water, despite it being freezing. after 2 hours on the beach we went into the town and got food. then we went to the park with the kids. in the park there was a fountain and some teenagers had bought a bottle of washing up liquid and poured it in the fountain and every time the fountain came on it made bubbles. i got a few pictures which i will post separately. before coming home we all got ice creams. we just got back to my mom and dads house a couple minutes ago. i’m pretty tired now but it was a good day. our first outing of the summer 🙂

Thoughts upon getting home

so i’m back home. the trip home was uneventful. the hostess on the train kept asking me if i was ok and reassuring me she rang cork to tell them i was on the train and needed assistance when we got there. i was grateful to her for that.

i was bored on the journey home. i went on facebook for a while and rad for a while but I was still bored. Nitro was really good. He lay down and only got up once or twice to look around him.

The taxi to the train station was very expensive. 36 euros to be exact. Thats 8 euro more than it was on Friday to go from the train station to my friends house. Sunday fares are higher than week day fares but still. I was only expecting it to be 30 euro max.

I came back to my parents house and will be here until tomorrow. Mom had my dinner ready for me when I got here. I felt all pampered and spoiled getting it served up to me. Nitro is wrecked now, he’s laying down and hasnt moved since I fed and watered him.

Trip has ended

Well my trip is over. I am heading home today. It was a nice trip I really enjoyed myself. The dogs had a great time with one another. They went to little bit crazy but that’s okay. I enjoyed spending time with my friend. Hope to do it again soon. It was nice to get away for the weekend :-). I’m glad I went.
