We did go on holiday this year. We went to Ireland and stayed in a cottage about an hour south of Dublin.
We had a lovely 2 weeks messing around on beaches, visiting amazing museums and remembering how much we enjoy each others company.
We love our holidays. We have never flown with the kids but will take a ferry anywhere so we have been to France, Belgium, Holland, Denmark and Spain.
J fancies Iceland next year....hmmmmm
Anyway, Ireland was amazing. We WILL be going back. I am not quite sure why we haven't been before.
No, no its ok this is not really just a trip down memory lane for me....you will not be forced so see photos of me in a swimsuit......uuugrh....no but you do need to know about this place though!
Quick look at the next photo... see, yarn, that feels better doesn' it
We went to Avoca. A beautiful little village that was used as the template for Ballykissangel. Its now well know as the home of the Avoca chain.
If you haven't heard of the Avoca chain then follow the link and loose yourself in beautiful things.
We visited the weaving shed where it all started. Its is still producing blankets there though obviously the they source from lots of other places as well.food as well.
Yes, I have bought the cookery book
Piles of wonderful blankets and throws.
I could have spent a lot more money than I did.
Lots of irresistible photos.
.......and of course a purchase. This is my new snuggle on the sofa blanket. it was so hard to choose a colour so I chose one with all of them on.
