Happy March 1st It was a lovely day here today after the fog and frost cleared this morning.
Thank you all for your comments yesterday and your suggestions. We have to go to a meeting on Monday afternoon so we’ll see what the outcome of that will be. Some of you got in touch about Jono doing a training course at home. What we really want is for him to socialise and hopefully make new friends which he wouldn’t be able to do if he was at home. Anyway we’ll see what happens on Monday.
What I didn’t get a chance to tell you was that I had to go for a brain scan yesterday. I get really bad headaches every now and again. The doctor wanted to check that there was no underlying cause. I had already had a sinus x-ray which I’m guessing came back clear because the next thing I know I got this brain scan appointment through.
Anyway the appointment was quite early in the morning. I had phoned to try to change the time but was told it had to be done at that time. In I go after dropping Lucy to school, only to find the scanner was broken! The hospital had been trying to phone our old home number to let me know. Then they finally phoned the new number but I had already left the house. So what a wasted journey that was.
I also didn’t get to tell you about the rest of our Dublin trip. We had to stay in a different hotel to normal. It wasn’t in a great area. In fact when we first arrived it was like something from a movie. With police sirens going, kids shouting and a cracked window in our bedroom.
There were quite a few problems as well. Including all the drunks on the luas when we were coming back to the hotel from the O2. Needless to say we won’t be staying there again.
On the positive side we had lunch in Jimmy Chungs which we’d never been to before and it was lovely. It’s a Chinese buffet. You can eat as much as you like, there was loads to choose from including a whippy ice cream machine and you just help yourself
We got to have a look around Dublin. Lucy loves Forever 21 and Jono loves Marks Models. I don’t like shopping at all but I like to see all the character’s in Dublin. Especially the mime artists and buskers. This man below was pretending to be rushing but he wasn’t moving at all. Very clever idea. Edited to add if you look to the right of the man you will spot Ryan Tubridy! I only noticed last week (April 2012).
