Sunday Thoughts

Another Sunday, the weeks roll by quickly. I managed to get out exploring which was just lovely. I wrote one post about the oldest shop in Ireland, and I plucked up the courage to ask if I could take photos, that was quite an achievement.

I left home early in the morning to visit Moore Hall, the Hunter’s Moon was keeping me company, casting a yellow glow on the landscape as I drove along, with just the occasional rabbit for company. I thought Moore Hall would be easier to get to but I think Google maps was taking me on the scenic route, Oasis were singing ‘All around the World’ and I felt like I’d driven all around the world by the time I got there.

It’s an amazing place to visit and I will write about it later. Sometimes I need to process things in my head before I write about them. This place was something special though. I arrived early in the morning and I was delighted to see a toilet, TMI I know but we all need the loo. I shouldn’t have watched Candyman though, because I was convinced he was going to make an appearance!

I’ll tell you more about the forest walk in another blog post, I was slightly terrified walking though the tunnel though.

It was great to have the time to head off for a couple of hours, I’d dropped out of a class I was going to. I found it a bit triggering and not for me, it’s a big step for me to acknowledge that and to almost give myself permission to duck out.

Things seem to be getting back to normal regarding the covid restrictions. I’ve noticed people aren’t keeping their distance as much as they used to, it does make me feel uncomfortable I have to say. I suppose this is my issue, but I’ll still be keeping my distance. The numbers are on the rise so it is a worry.

The other week we were digging in the garden and a little robin came to visit. I posted it on Facebook and a very talented artist asked if he could paint it. Isn’t it amazing? You can find Arty Graeme at the New Art Gallery and Craft in the Gillooly Hall, Sligo on Saturdays.

So that’s my Sunday catch up. I hope you are all keeping well, and thanks for reading.

  1. Val, two things first a very lovely picture of the robin and secondly and most important in my humble opinion, most trips taken by the scenic route are the most interesting and satisfying, keep up the good work and good health and happiness to you and yours. Jack
