It has been awhile…..

....a long while. I had grand plans for continuing with the blog and with one thing and another I found life got busy. It took me ages to get over Juno passing. The introduction of another dog left last year (2019)left the house feeling all over the place. Much as Kai is a gorgeous dog, …

A whole year on…..

2018, Here I am!

Ok, here I am in County Clare, Ireland. Last year I (well the other half eagerly agreed and encouraged it all) moved. Big life change. Also, a rather large scale adventure. Selling and buying houses in two very different countries was challenging. The articles I'd read about delays in Ireland proved to be untrue in …
