Catch-up time

Can't believe it's over a month since I managed to write a post. I've been hiding away, a bit like this house in Marlay Park!

Thanks to those who popped by to say hello and they missed me.
Things have been really hectic around here; I've so much news I don't know where to start. Eldest daughter has started college. And I've been away twice since September, on a school trip to Spain and another "sharing expertise" trip to Slovenia. each time it took me a week to recover, as both trips were brilliant but hectic.
Enough excuses!
Here's a video I recorded on Grafton Street during the summer holidays, I loved how people come along and busk there (it's one of my favourite things about Dublin!) and I loved the way they played. This is my first time to upload a video, so I just hope it works. It's very short, but gives a flavour!


  1. Lovely to be able to read your post again. Was a tiny little snatch of the busking!
    We have some really good ones in Bristol and Bath (rubbish ones too, occasionally) but a lot of talent out there.

    Nuts in May

  2. Even two seconds was long enough to remember Grafton Street! Thanks for the post. So good to see you back again. You have had a busy time and maybe some retroactive posts to come - if we`re lucky.

  3. The video worked the first time I tried it. But my sound was muted. Dang it! Now I can't get it to play! Guess I'll be here a while. LOL

  4. That's the quickest video I've ever seen! Welcome back to the blogs...sounds like you've been very busy. We'd all love to see more of your beautiful Ireland when you have the time!

  5. Glad you are back, Mimi.

    I could not get tyhe video to load but willm return later and have another go. I need to upgrade my wireless card picking up signals from my router from a G card to an N card and then it will work. Ever thought of busking with your French Horn? Oh! There's a First Aid lesson at my place which you might find interesting LOL.

  6. Oh damn, I didn't realise it was so short!
    Thanks for dropping by, it's lovely to see you all again here.

  7. Welcome back Mimi, hope we get to hear more about your trips.;)
    The clip only played 2 seconds for me and I could not play it more or again, unfortunately.
    Have a great evening,

  8. What a busy time for you! Welcome back!!

    Yes, and the clip was great, though you're right, it's short. But it does give a taste. :) Looks fabulous!


  9. Welcome back Mimi - Oh I do love Grafton Street. It is bustling with activity. I love the different artists, whether they are musicians, statuesquers or sand artists. Grafton Street has it all! Thanks for sharing and glad you are back!

  10. Good to see you back! I'm considering a break myself over the holidays.
