Well we’ve still been busy painting….inbetween heavy showers. Luckily they didn’t wash the paint off the wall. I’m able to get up and down the ladder like a rat up a drain pipe now so that’s a major breakthrough for me who used to be scared of heights. Although I’m not looking forward to the really high bit of the last remaining wall to be done.
I was searching on the net last week and had a look at the 1911 census site. I’ve seen it before but they have recently put the details of Galway up there.
I found my nan and Grandad, which was great. My nan lived in a tiny cottage in Connemara,with her nan, her parents and seven brothers and sisters! How did they all manage? It’s really interesting.
I found out that my nan’s parents and Grandmother couldn’t read or write.
I don’t think I told you about this visitor we had a couple of weeks ago:
It’s not a great photo because I was on full zoom through a window, because I didn’t want to scare him. Anyway I had no idea what it was so I put the photo on flickr and have been told it’s a Pine Martin. Aparently it’s very rare to see them, so I’m delighted. I’ve been on the lookout for him again, but no luck.
