Ireland

Hubby and I went to Ireland for a few days last week. We left the house with plenty of time to spare. Our flight was delayed 1.5 hours, when we got to the next airport for our connection, we had missed it by minutes. Now this wouldn't have been so bad, if everyone on the flight hadn't said that they would be holding the flight for us. So 8 hours waiting for our next flight and nearly a day off of our already short trip. We were meant to get in at 10am and we got in at 5pm. Add in my trip to the clinic to get a TB test for school (needed it to register) and we had very little time with the family.

It was good to see everyone again. Liam's mom has cancer, now of the lung, brain and arm, so we wanted to get in another visit before I went away to school. We stayed at our Greg's house, which is always nice. He's got those bamboo scent bottles that make his place smell like a dream. Towels with little soaps on it and we have our own key, so it always takes a bit of worry about our trips, mainly where we are going to stay. In return for Greg's hospitality over the last year we have gotten him a hookah pipe, a case of wine, and tickets for 2 to Vinipolis. Liam and I are going to have to start getting more creative.
