The early bird

I’m an awful eejit sometimes – today was one of those times. I turned up to an event a week early! Drove all the way to Carrick-on-Shannon walked into the venue and as soon as I did it dawned on me I was a week ahead of myself!


It’s not the first time I’ve got the wrong day. I turned up at a meeting before a day early – better than a day late. Not as bad as the time I went to an appointment for Jono – without Jono! I forgot to pick him up from school!

Today turned out OK in the end. I went to drown myself in a hot chocolate at the Landmark Hotel, they have a lovely, sunny, conservatory and it was great just to relax for a while. I also checked out the exhibition at The Dock and photographer Brian Farrell’s beautiful exhibition too.

I had a walk along the river, a look around the town, bought some bits with my birthday money, including this beautiful unicorn cushion, and paid a visit to the smallest chapel in Ireland.

I have to say well done to the Leitrim ICA for the lovely yarn bombing at the Market Yard, it really brightens the place up.

On the way home I stopped off at Lough Arrow and collected so driftwood for a project I’m making. I also visited the Sligo Folk Park as I’m working on a photography exhibition that will be held at St. John’s Hospital as part of the Bealtaine Festival so that’s very exciting.

All in all it was a good day, even if it didn’t go quite to plan.

    What a lovely day :-). Its amazing when these things happen. A comon one is getting to the airport to pick someone up a day early, but thatโ€™s because they have wrong date. Some visitors forget they fly through timezones and midnights.

    Then the times of getting to the airport to travel … and the suitcase has been left at home.

    Or a folk band I was in, we get to the club, right name … wrong town! And instead of being a folk club was a strip club, and we were too naive to know until we were half set up.

    With you, it became a perfect day. Hereโ€™s to many more for you ๐Ÿ™‚
