Still Here!

Just a very quick note, to let all my blogger friends know.....I have not fallen off the edge of planet.  My excuses for being absent and so remiss.  Let's see!  Well I won't bore you with the full litany.   I will just go with the two most obvious.  Jet lag is still dogging me and I will not have my broadband until June 1.  But I am in the process of catching up on all your wonderful blog posts, with my IPod and little notebook with the too small keyboard for my big clumpy fingers.  OK!  I know I promised not to bore you with my litany.  But I just can't help myself.

I am savouring my first day sitting in my sunny Irish kitchen, sipping Barry's tea and eating McCambridge brown soda bread slathered with Dairygold and Little Chip fine cut marmalade.  Joy! Ecstasy!

Good luck with your broadband connection and have a good rest!

Welcome home, Ann, delighted your flights made it with no problems,
The sun is staying out for you, enjoy your culinary delights, see you next week for more food.

Ann said...

Hi Kitty, Yes I am alive and well. Just need the floor to stop moving! I also got all the shoes into the case. Yippee!

Hi Fairyhedgehog, the tea and brown soda bread are wonderful. Another treat just savoured, chocolate digestives!!!Heaven.

Hi Brigid, it is so good to be home. The smell of the sea...no words! Looking forward to Avoca! Should be able to don the shoes with fear of falling over by then. Floors are still moving. :)

Ann - I am soooooo envious. Have I told you a few begillion times how much I love Ireland? Where in Ireland are you? I miss the Dingle Peninsula...

Ann said...

Hi Jan, I am in Dungarvan,Co. Waterford. Southeast coast between Waterford city and Cork. Loveing it. Just need the head to stop spinning and the stars to only come out at night!

Oh, Ann, hubby and I went to Ireland (and Scotland) last Fall, and I fell in love with Ireland. How long will you be there, you lucky lady?

Sounds like you're having a lovely time. I miss your posts, but starting tomorrow, I won't be able to read any for a week. I'll have a lot of catching up to do when I return!

Al said...

Take it easy, you'll be back when you are ready.

niamh said...

Welcome to Ireland! Thanks for bringing the sun with you, please don't take it when you leave.

Jackee said...

Oh, man. That sounds heavenly! Even the internet closed for awhile.

Have some soda bread on me! And I'm glad you got there safe and sound!

Susannah said...

Thanks for checking in and I'm glad all is well except for the spinning! Sit still and eat all the things you missed until it stops! :-)

Hi Ann,
Good to hear that you're enjoying your time in Dungarvan. We're blessed with the sunny weather right now. And I know how you feel with the jet lag, it takes me ages to adjust too.

mise said...

Yes, the small things are such a welcome home. I hope the savouring feeling lingers!

Dot-Com said...

Jetlag is a pain - suffering from it myself right now :( Hope you get back to your normal self soon again, and with broadband just around the corner now, you'll be back and blogging in no time.

Barbara Scully said...

Welcome Home Ann... see you on Tuesday...

Susan Fields said...

That bread and butter and marmalade sounds wonderful! I hope you're all recovered from your jet lag by now. :)

Catherine said...

Hi Ann - welcome home, will be thinking of you when I'm rushing around Dungarvan/fungarvan at lunchtimes - the brown soda bread and marmalade are a delight we take all too much for granted!The weather makes everyplace look wonderful - I had my packed lunch today out at Helvick, it was lovely. Hope you're having a marvellous time. Will see you no doubt at Immrama!
All the best, Catherine
