Apparently this was to be his bed for the next few nights. We only had one duvet and one sleeping bag, so we decided that I’ll get the sleeping bag to myself so that ...

· We had some delicious apple pie for dessert. We were both glad we’d had a small lunch, otherwise we would not have been able to eat everything.
· After dessert, we had the entertainment portion of the show. It was a mixture of songs and poetry recitals from Irish poets. And it was quite fun. The two performers had very beautiful voices. Beforehand, they had told us not to take ...
