A Day of Rocks and Rain (Ireland 2016)

A Day of Rocks and Rain (Ireland 2016)

Hahaha okay. In my last post I said I would be back “probably tomorrow” with more tales of my trip to Ireland… and that was three weeks ago. I had some technical trouble, then I was without WiFi for ten days, and then I was lacking in physical and mental strength to blog. Sorry about that. But here it is, long-awaited and possibly entirely forgotten about: part two. After our unexpectdly epic trek to Kilfenora, we decided to take it…

Is This The Way To Kilfenora? (Ireland 2016)

Is This The Way To Kilfenora? (Ireland 2016)

I promised I’d write about my trip to Ireland with Charley, but I didn’t intend for it to take until the day before I go away again (this time to Yorkshire with the university ceilidh band), so I’m sorry about that. Still, I’m here now, and I’ve finally retrieved the photos from my camera as well as my phone. Actually getting to Lisdoonvarna, where we were staying, was our first adventure. Just landing safely at Shannon Airport wasn’t enough —…

So I’m sorry about that! First of all, I entered Pitch Wars. If you haven’t heard of it, don’t worry — neither had I…

Little Pieces Of Peace

Little Pieces Of Peace

A quick note before I start the post proper. I’ve noticed my stats have been steadily declining in recent weeks, and I’m aware that there have been technical problems (subscriptions failing to send; moving my blog etc), so I’m not overly concerned about that. However, I’m figuring out a sort of blog schedule in order to blog more consistently, which you may notice soon. In addition, if you’ve any comments on how I could improve my blog or what I’ve…

August (Retrospect and Reminiscing #8)

August (Retrospect and Reminiscing #8)

August was a supremely atypical month for me, really. It involved lots of reading, exam results, very little writing, lots of TV, lots of travel, some kissing, far too much plotting, and Charley. Let’s go through those things in approximately that order. This wonderful picture of Charley and me is my favourite thing because I don’t look too much shorter than her – primarily because I’m standing on the curb and she’s not. I’d recently acquired that waistcoat and had…
