Sorry that I haven't been around to visit for the past few days- I was away at a birthday celebration, here:
My brother turned 50 at the weekend, and the family gift to him was a get-together, and a game of golf (his favourite) here:
While the golf was on, my sister and me walked and walked all around the estate, then had a coffee in the Manor drawing room. A lovely treat.
The four of us, 2 brothers,my sister and me, stayed in nearby Limerick.
What I love most about these get-togethers is that from the minute we meet, it's laughing, joking, good-natured teasing, fun. We know each other so well, for such a long time, that we are all completely relaxed in each others' company.
But the sad part comes when we have to say goodbye, and I hate that part. I always part with a horrible feeling that sometime it will be the last time that we'll all be together and the magic will be broken. And I hope so much that this is not that time. I hope that with all my heart.
On another note, for anyone who missed it, here's a link to my interview in the Sunday Roast over at Eddie Bluelights. Eddie has a very funny blog, and he does a superb job of the Sunday Roast, so if you have a minute, please, please pop over and leave a comment. I was really worried when Eddie told me that, inspired by my French Horn, he got "creative" with this roast, but in fact, I had such a laugh at it that my sides are still sore. LOL Eddie!!
I'll be round to comment again tomorrow, till then, hope you're all well and having a good summer.
