My first snow

People sledging

I haven’t seen it before, but the rain turned cold and white at the end of the week there – apparently it’s called snow!

Winter 2009-2010 and 2010-2011 had cold and snowy spells with temperatures much lower than usual here in Ireland.

In England again

Two babies sharing a bath

Me and mummy have been in England for a couple of days now. We flew over a couple of days ago to visit my cousin Alex and his mum and dad.

They all moved over to England just before Christmas as Alex’s daddy got a new job there.

Boy playing with his sister in the living room

So, another year over, a new one just begun!

It’s 2013 and we’ve come through 2012 unscathed. A little bruised perhaps, mostly caused through a lack of sleep for the grown ups, but no more than that. In fact, daddy’s wee website business goes from strength to strength, the garden is becoming productive and the house improvements carried on apace… Mummy is very involved in the arts in Inishowen through the Inishowen Rural Arts Network and (almost single-handedly) ran the wonderful Our Colours, Our Sounds project – all that while looking after me!
