On arrival in Galway at lunch time, we were recieved my Dad and family with lovely hot soup, rolls, ham, salad, turkey, the works!! and more importantly....the best Irish Coffees in Ireland.
Shannon and Casey I swear have grown 2 inches each!! We were made feel very very welcome and the two families blended effortlessly
On the last morning of our visit I got up at 4am to go to work with Dad....after the Queensland 30 degree heat it was great craic to be fecking freezing in a warehouse on the outskirts of Galway waiting on Ireland's morning papers to arrive so we could deliver them throughout Connemara and further afield....you have to laugh...well laugh and bounce about alot to keep warm which I did.
The countryside was breathtakingly beautiful at dawn, all white and twinkly. Absolutley hazzardess on the roads though and I was impressed with my fathers driving skills keeping the wagon going in a straight line. He is a member of IAM (institute of advanced motorists) and those skills were totally obvious on the scary roads covered in sheet ice, black ice, frozen snow and of course the other big risk on the roads...less capable drivers!!!
After a few wonderful days it was back to Belfast.....big sightime to go to Mum for TLC before heading to London with Kev and Cat to See Gillian, Luke and Sonny.... Roll on 2010..YAY!
