With such a busy Easter weekend behind us, we took this weekend very easy. I didn’t make any crazy plans. In fact, we planned nothing which was good for some, too. Let the kids go wild in the garden and house. That was pretty much our weekend summed up.
Can you believe it, it’s Monday again. The weekend has gone in a flash. It seems to go super fast since we started planning our weekends. It is great that we can go out and about more now with the kids. Thankfully this week is going to be a very short one for us. Work today and tomorrow and we are off to the UK on a ferry on Wednesday morning. So exciting. One of the things that is on our family bucket list.
Spring is really showing itself from the pretty side the last two weeks. At the weekend we had lovely weather again. The kids spent most of it outside. Chloe is asking to go outside pretty much everyday now. She loves it. She seems to be the happiest when outside I find. Whereas Matthew can get a bit lazy and he doesn’t mind being indoors.
Our weekend was just wow. Mother nature finally decided Ireland is in need of some sun for a whole weekend. (And it keeps going on this lovely Monday afternoon) We used this weather to its maximum and spent most of the time outside. We still haven’t managed to work on the garden, so while the kids were outside playing, I decided to move everything around and place it where it should be for the summer. I also started on my flower bed in the corner.
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.
