Hello everyone 😊 normally by now I’ve written my Sunday review but unfortunately it’s a tad later this week. Also, it’s probably not going to cover the rest of the week, only the last 3 days!
Well it’s been a strange Easter weekend, I’ll give you that. Friday, we drove to the beautiful countryside of County Fermanagh and got lost trying to find Crom Estate so eventually gave up and found a pub. Met up with family from down this part of the country which was quite nice – actually saw my uncle for the first time in about 3 years! The night ended with a lovely meal in the chalet and just family time.
Saturday we were up at the crack of dawn (some of us earlier than others thanks to a certain dog) to get ready to have coffee before a walk. Only 2 hours after we all got up, we were on our way to Castle Coole (not sure on spelling) for a walk around the lake. Of course, what with living in Northern Ireland, it was raining quite heavily for the majority of the walk. So we spent the afternoon playing board games and yet more talking. Saturday was rounded off with a lovely dinner in Café Merlot in Enniskillen where the most intriguing part of the menu was a fillet of cod served with beef bourguigon. Apparently it was lovely but I do wish I’d taken a picture for you!
Today, with the hour change, we had a bit of a lie in before taking a walk around a small bay just on the outskirts of Kesh. It was lovely since we haven’t been there in years but Rachel and I used to go quite frequently with our granny. Back to the chalet and time for lunch before once again we all piled into the car for a trip “down south” to the Republic of Ireland. Well we drove down through Pettigo, into Donegal, to Murvagh beach, a slight detour somewhere I can’t remember the name of, and finally into Belleek. I’m now sitting on the sofa bed after a decent Chinese takeaway at my aunt and uncle’s – too full to sleep!
So I think all in all it’s been a good time away. Yes I complain about having to spend time with family but at the same time it was good to see Peter, Linda and Sarah. But for now I’m going to have to try and sleep. Up early to clear out of the chalet, need to be out by 10am…
Good luck for the upcoming Monday!
