Friday Five: Inchydoney

My quickie post today will be really quick.

1. Was at a function on Monday and met up with a past student and her two beautiful babies. Really enjoyed chatting with her, and reminiscing.
 Someone in school today was saying it makes her feel old that some of her past students are married. Sssh! I am now teaching the 18 y/o daughter of a past pupil! How did that happen? I keep telling them I was very young when I started!

2. I still have some of that awful cold/flu left in my head. Have been going for NST. It's a very interesting treatment- not supposed to cross legs, use electric blanket, drink coffee. Must stand up and move every half hour, I'll be back in a minute!

3. Someone posted on Facebook tonight that snow is headed our way. I love snow, but not in March when I'm looking for sun.

4. I was so tired when I got home today that I fell asleep on the sofa, woke at 20.00!! Family were in and out of the (open plan) kitchen, making dinner, eating etc and I never heard a thing! I need to go to bed now, just hope I haven't ruined my sleep.
Just cos I hate to post without a photo, these are of the beach in Inchydoney, Cork, taken last summer, grey sky but beach still beautiful. Just hope I haven't posted them before!

5. I'm playing in a Mother's Day concert on Sunday. Should be fun. Must look at music tomorrow! Mother's Day here is different to the USA.
Enjoy your weekend!

  2. I never saw that part of Cork even though we were there for three days! A nice recap of your week. Hope the treatment helps you to get back to 100%. Snow? Now? That would not be happy-making at all. Best wishes for the concert.

  3. No snow headed our way so feel free to blow it our way. LOL I did that 'fall asleep' thing on Thursday and was able to go right back to sleep. I was so tired! But, Friday morning, I was good to go, thankfully!

  5. I had to look up that part of Cork - I never imagined it to be so near the ocean! My Brother in law is from River Stick, Cork - but it seems like quite a distance away. What kind of music will you play ? Hope you feel better! Thanks for stoping by! :)

  6. I do hope you get rid of that nasty cold and start feeling yourself! Sometimes a nice long nap curingthe day is EXACTLY what I need when I'm sick. (actually I'd like to have one every day - even when I'm not sick :)

    1. thanks Kerri. when the children were smaller, I used to always nap for 10 or 20 mins in the afternoon, but got out of the habit, maybe I should start doing it again!

  7. I haven't come across adult children of my patients, but it's possible I did and had no idea!

    Please enlighten me, what is NST?

    Feel better soon!

    1. Rudee, NST is Neurostructural Integration technique, an advanced form of Bowen therapy, results in a spontaneous automatic correction within the muscular, nervous, visceral and endocrine systems. My physiotherapist friend does it, and it works really well, I'm hoping it will clear the dregs of this virus.

  8. Sorry to hear that you still have a problem with that cold in your sinuses.
    Hope the Mother's Day Concert went well.

    It is trying to snow here today.

  9. It must be neat to see your past students all grown with kids of their own though! The pics are beautiful. Hope you feel better soon!

  10. Sounds like you really needed that extra rest, and I hope it helped with your cold. How was the concert?

  11. Sorry you still aren't feeling well Mimi.
    Interesting treatment. Please let us know how that goes. :)
    An early Happy Mother's Day to you!

  12. What a nice personal post.;) I have very similar contemplations recently as your friend - it feels odd to think back to when I stated to work, realizing that a whole new generation has been born and became adults since then ...
    Here we are also getting snow next week and I am so not ready for that, or rather, i am SO ready for spring to arrive now;)
    Hope your get fully recovered soon, have a great weekend,
    xoxo

  13. Ah, so you are in Dublin! Visited about 5 years ago-what a lovely city! Wish I could come back! Maybe one day ;)

  14. Nice to have seen you in my comment section today. Hope that means you are feeling much better.
    I just reread this post and had to smile. I was visiting my brother for his birthday this past weekend and my sister-in-law was telling me her teaching partner this year is a young man she used to teach. My nephew told her it was time to retire. :)
