Now I am in Ireland to experience the country - but never did I think I would do so literally. My new home, Castlebar in county Mayo is a little country town where the cows are never far away! Seriously though, my home is an easy 10 minute walk to the town centre and I can always smell cows!
Now I must say it isnt the smallest town I have ever lived in - really, Proserpine was the smallest, Castlebar is not far off, but it is a LOT further away from Airlie Beach!

I have a good job in a private practice here starting each day at 1:30! My first delve into the world of non hospital work - it is great!

And for the first time since leaving Cairns I have a bedroom to myself! How exciting! It has only been 6 months of sharing a room. I have a big, comfy double bed in a lovely little house with great housemates (Candice, you are still my fav!) all for 50 euro a week!

Hasnt been easy making this move though. Is bit tough, being so far from family and friends at home (luckily Dan is easily on the phone in Dublin). I had just established myself in Galway when I had to move on to Co. Mayo with a new job - and the day before starting work - no home and no friends. It is a good experience though. Luckily Galway is not far away - only 1-2hrs on the bus. So weekends in the big city are on the cards!
