Busy week

Things have been a bit hectic here this past week or so. Here is a photo diary of different things we have been getting up to lately...The women's meeting was held in the Kirwan's home. Marie held it and it was the best meeting she ever held, really good.
These scarves are identical. I bought the top one for €1 in Pennies a couple of months ags. The bottom one is for sale in n expencive shop for €27.90...

Yesterday morning Sean and I joined a school class of 5th and 6th class children in the Town Hall to see a 4 man play. Very well performed and a good story too.

Our friend and brother in the Lord Rob is back from Holland and living in N.I. He came down on his bike to visit us. Great to see him again.
Sean had a swimming test don Wednesday. He has skipped three levels due to Sigita's coaching! He is starting a set of 8 intense lessons where he will be learning to dive etc. Yesterday I took him to the pool for a few hours and he swam 205 lenghts of the 25m pool... Only I saw it with my own eyes I wouldn't have believed it.
Yesterday was a busy day. We joined up with a school tour and went to the Museun here in Dundalk and saw a film about Louth and then this great tour guide took us around some of the Museum.
Sean is still working away at trying to raise money for his sailing boat. He has 8 gift mug sets in this florist in town along with a gift pack! He is keeping tabs using three book keeping ledgers. Great exercise in money management.


We went to see Coke, or rather 'Max'. He knew us and was all excited! He looked good and it seems like he went to a very good home.I took Sean to a night of Jazz at the Innis Free guest house. Tess, his granny came along and we had a great night! Sean had a good time chatting to the musicians and we hope to get back to see them soon.

We have been having very sunny weather these past few days so with this in mind we started working on a craft Sean got for his birthday last year. Its for making sun catchers.
On Wednesday we went to the Court house for a visit. This is our second time and let me tell you, it would surprise you what we have learned in those few hours...
Gotcha! Sean is check mate in a cafe in town.
