Snippets From A Day in Dundrum, Dublin Ireland December 3, 2009

Excerpts from my diary for a night and day in early December:

  Moonlight, evening of December 2

  approx. 8:30 a.m., a view of the full moon in the western sky, as daylight comes, December 3 – the moon is that white circle seen through the upper branches of the tree

an email informs me that our belongings are well on their way to Seattle on the SS Rotterdam, due in Seattle on January 4th

10:15 a.m. – a man arrives to fit a carpet, just as I am going off to my final Irish class for this term.  Husband Ian left in charge.  On the way to my class I discover that my handwoven curtains are now buried in a skip.

  a stop for coffee at Starbucks in the Dundrum Town Centre.  I think about my curtains.

Irish class as enjoyable as ever

  Lunch at Harvey Nichols in the Dundrum Town Centre

a bit of shopping

and a walk to Airfield in the mid-afternoon to see how the piglets are doing

  Mama sow having a drink of water

the 10 five day old piglets are doing fine

 and two new goats have moved in next door to the piglets

a bit of Christmas shopping in the shop at Airfield and then coffee and tea with friends  – including 4 year old Alannah who was uneasy about seeing the piglets – Mama sow’s snorts were a bit frightening!

evening – knitting and the latest episode of Ros na Rún – a long running Irish soap
