The holiday starts today -- flying out later on

Gutted to be missing the APAT in Edinburgh and the best of luck to all who have entered.

See you all in 10 days (make that 11 I will have to sober up)

Ger and the wee man landed safe and sound last night...mostly.  They"ve stopped here on their way to their holiday home for a quick brekkie, then off they go for 10 days of beach and sunshine rain.  It is Ireland after all.

Landed in the holiday home via a big fry up at Laxie Towers (Top woman that one). Anyway the village has beautiful views and pubs, but FML the shops don't sell beer. Quick retreat into Killorglin (Home of the Puck Fair) and phew found an off licence. Fridge replened TG

Wee man is a bit poorly so he is slumped on the couch and like a good caring Father I am about to go out to the pub (just a short walk away).

Today and tomorrow are going to be quiet and I will see how he is on Monday and will probably have to go to the money grabbing doctor.

Off now to see how the Edinburgh Classic is getting on

On the first full day of the holiday, the wee man was feeling a lot better (No doctor required) and we decided to take a trip to Dingle for lunch. We drove through Kilorglin (Of Puck Fair fame) and on along the coast to Dingle. The scenery is breathtaking and it was a lovely drive. Long sandy beaches and rugged cliffs. Whilst nothing will ever compare to my own native county of Clare the views along here were a close second.

Dingle is very tourist orientated and was full of tour buses. We did manage to find a lovely pub that served food and had, quite possibly, the best bacon and cabbage that I have ever had the pleasure to eat.

I had left my mobile back in the house and as it is an extension of me I was a little worried. But the relaxed atmosphere and fine weather soon had me realising that I should leave my phone at home more often.

We sauntered back to the village of Glenbeigh and I wanted to keep up with the APAT game, well I would have if the thread was still there.   ::) ::) ::)

We retired to the local watering hole to watch the Golf and drink pots of Guinness. (Wasn't Tom Watson unlucky).

So far this holiday is all that I require, lazy days, liquid nights, priceless

However, Laxie and a couple of her delightful children arrive today so the lazy day could be a thing of the past, wouldn't have it any other way.....

Yesterday was a good day, Dawn's two girls went for a swim in the Atlantic FFS. I know they had wet suits on but Jesus it looked freezing.

We retired for a meal to the pub then had a rowdy game of poker where the wee man took me out. He will be OK if he keeps the ice pack to his face.

We then played a game called Knock 31. It's a game where it's possible to change the rules on an ongoing basis in order that my hand always loses.

Today we are going to go horse riding, if it keeps fine. My personal insurance is fully paid up, so I should be OK.

he should have been but fair play...he struggled on and survived it. Just about. Heard from the tour leader, "come on paddy". Heard from ger... "Dont mind paddy, he"s fecking grand." as poor old paddy crept along.
