Gang aft agley,
Home again from Ireland – one week early. The weekend at the Bookcrossing Convention in Dublin was great fun. Lots of chatting, good food, pints of Guinness and I even participated in a wee bit of Irish dancing. In fact, it was great craic.
After Dublin we managed a short walk in the Wicklow hills, but then I went down with flu. Not a bad cold, not ‘man flu’, but proper influenza which is not nice. I spent a few days trying to recover (I had plenty of reading material), but after five days of feeling like death warmed up, I’d had enough and I wanted to come home.
Now I’m home I’m slowly recovering and still reading some of the many books I picked up at the convention.
I’ll share some photos from our one walk at Glendalough shortly.
ps the fact that I was only struck down ill after stopping drinking pints of Guinness may or may not be relevant.
