Excerpts from my diary for a night and day in early December:
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.
Irish class as enjoyable as ever
a bit of shopping
and a walk to Airfield in the mid-afternoon to see how the piglets are doing
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
