Yet another week has passed!
On Monday I was off. So I took my time with everything, watched some tv, went into town to post some cards. At 3.30 I went to the gym with Tadgh and after a nice dinner I watched ‘Legend of Tarzan’. That was my Monday haha.
Tuesday was a day off again. Didn’t do much that day either haha. Booked the Nightmare Realm for when my brother is here, painted my nails, read the last bit of Harry Potter and the cursed child (which is really good btw), did some laundy etc. In the evening Katie and I ate some leftover chilli and I watched a movie over at Ayleen’s house.
Wednesday, yes ANOTHER day off. I had my breakfast and watched Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. After that I did some research for fun things I can do around here. After lunch I went downtown. I got some tea, some craft stuff for the kids and bought a new book (the Rosie project). When I was home again I video chatted with Daisy and Evy. So much fun to see them, and Rik and Ingo too haha. We chatted for about half an hour and I saw the new house, which was really pretty! I made some dinner for myself and around 8 Ayleen and I walked down to Alberts for the au pair meeting. There were 2 new au pairs, which was nice. But that also meant that Stephanie was leaving, which is sad. It was a fun evening and we went home around 10.30 PM. This was too early according to Kevin and Katie haha. So next time Ayleen, we can not go home that early!!
Thursday I did have to work. The day started a little hectisch, because Naoise had a severe headache. Katie took him to the doctor, so I had to get Iarlaith out of bed. The boys and I did some painting, most of it went onto the page, in the morning. Conaill went to school around 12.20. Katie, Kevin and Naoise came home around 3.30, because they went to the hospital to be sure. Luckily they couldn’t find anything. In the evening I went to the gym around 8.15 and had a good work-out. It was slightly awkward at times. Tadgh knows too many people, so at one point there were like 5-6 guys talking to him. That in itself isn’t a problem, but I’m next to that, sweating and doing exercises. One girl came by as well and said exactly what I was thinking haha.
Friday already! I didn’t have to take Naoise up to the bus, which means I don’t have to go out into the cold at 8 AM, so I’m happy! I played with Conaill and Iarlaith a bit. It was a good morning!
When Naoise came home we watched Aladdin. When Conaill came home, he and Naoise were picked up for a party. That meant I only had Iarlaith, so that was really easy haha. Around dinner time Katie came home and I sat downstairs until our dinner. After dinner I watched the first episode of Westworld.. A weird show! I haven’t decided yet if it’s good weird of just weird weird.
This weekend I had a tour planned on Sunday. This left so early that we had to go to Cork on Saturday. So Ayleen, Nathalie and I took the bus around 1.40 PM. In Cork we went to the hostel first and dropped our bags. After that we walked around a bit, went to Starbucks and around 5.30 we went for dinner. Marine joined us and we went to ‘Son of a Bun’ and that was gooooooooooooood! Also the cider that went with it was good! The next stop was ‘Sober lane’. We went there for some drinks, had some laughs, danced a bit and went home at a respectable time of 12.
On Sunday we had to get up at 7AM for the tour. Ayleen and I had breakfast in our hostel and met the others (who were in another hostel) at the bus. We arrived early, so we could pick a good spot!! The Ring of Kerry was on the agenda for today! First we drove to Killarney, where we had some time to get a coffee. I got a winter spiced cappuccino, which was really good!
Some of the spots we went are: Dingle peninsula, Waterville overlooking Ballinskelligs Bay, Sneem, drove through a bit of Killarney National Park and ended with the Torc Waterfall. You can see some of these places on the pictures below. Around 7 PM we arrived back in Cork and took the bus straight to Mallow. Ayleen and I had dinner at McDonalds haha and it was goooood! When I got home, I chatted with Katie and Kevin for a bit and discussed the weekend.

Je zou bijna denken dat je daar op vakantie bent he.
Wat een vrije tijd zeg.
Dus tijd om al veel van de omgeving te bekijken.
En komende dagen zeker met je ouders en Rik.
Veel plezier in Dublin en natuurlijk een gezellige verjaardag.
Groetjes uit Welten
