Back Home

I'm back! And I'm tired.


But that is because I had a wonderful, wonderful time. It's impossible not to have a wonderful wonderful time with Ms Abby Green in charge - she is a brilliant tour guide, social secretary and events organiser, and she knows how to make sure her friends have a good time.


Reports will follow on my blog just as soon as I recover enough and catch up with everything else in time to write them. But I hade a wonderful mix of sightseeing, shopping, eating, drinking, a fabulous trip down nostalgia lane to places I loved in my childhood. I visited a film set (which is where this photo of Abby was taken), watched filming, and I fell in love with a gorgeous Irishman - someone Abby works with sometimes in her day job. Though how she manages to concentrate with him around it beyond me! I wanted to bring him home as my souvenir of Ireland but apparently he's already taken. Ah well, I shall have a great memory of black hair, lovely blue eyes and a sexy Irish accent to keep as research for the next time I'm considering an Irish hero.


And Abby and I also shared a shopping expedition as the result of which we now both have new coats and a lighter bank balance.
The BM wandered the streets of Dublin taking all the photographs he needed for the next Foul Deeds and Suspcious Deaths book - which is, obviously, FDSD in Dublin - and we met up in the evenings with The Offspring and his girlfriend to eat and talk over our days and drink a little wine . . . Just a little.
So I'll be back tomorrow with a report and photos

Glad you had a nice time, Kate.

Merlin and Archer are a little concerned as to who looked after the important people in your house while you were away...?

Welcome back! I am seriously jealous of your trip away. Details! Details! Details!
