What a fun filled weekend we had. On top of that we got an extra day. On Friday it was St. Patrick’s Day which is a public holiday in Ireland. We had lots of plans made. Matthew’s godfather was coming over with his son and his wife. His son is nearly fourteen years of age so Matthew had lots of fun playing with him.
Unfortunately the weather was not on our side and it was drizzling rain most of the weekend but that still didn’t stop us from keeping to our plan. On Friday Matthew’s godfather went to the parade in Dublin City while we sat at home and watched it on the TV. Cosy and not getting wet. I am glad we didn’t go because he said it wasn’t that good and it was only an hour long. Normally the parade starts at midday but this time it didn’t start until 12.40pm for some reason.
Last week was awful weather wise. There was storm Doris that threw things around the place. We don’t have much in the garden yet but the few bits we do have got blown all over the place. Then yesterday there was another storm on its way. Thankfully this morning the sun is shining. It’s just a bit chilly.
Due to the weather, we couldn’t do any outside activities. We tried to make the best out of it and on Saturday we went to Liffey Valley. I was meant to pick up a new pair of shoes for Chloe ages ago. The last time she got measured was November last year. Bad mummy alert. I bought a gauge from Clarks online and to my measurements she is now a 4 1/2 when she previously was a 3 1/2. I wanted to confirm the size in store. She didn’t like the man doing it as she wasn’t stretching her toe. He got a size out of it and I told him I got a size 4 1/2 so he said to go with that. On Friday I bought her a pair of pink cute converse as well. They are a size 5. Hopefully that’s her sorted for shoes now.
