I have not vanished from the face of the earth, I have just gone on holiday! We decided,on very short notice, do go to Ireland for a week. We spent the first few days in the countryside in Waterford, the weather was glorious and we spent two days on the beach, sunbathing and swimming in the sea. We then drove back to Dublin where we stay until Wednesday when Una and I will fly back. Yesterday we had dinner at Una's auntie Sophie's house and today we are hoping to go to the seaside, hopefully we won't get rained on.
