It is a bank holiday weekend. Decorating was off the agenda as the roof leaked this week in a once in a hundred year storm. No painting until we are sure it won’t leak again.

So, what to do then?? Well after 6 years of living in Dublin, we decided to visit Dublinia. Frankly it wasn’t as much fun as it could have been. It felt a little too much like a visit to a church for one thing, half of the interactive commentaries didn’t work and the man at the till was rude. Or perhaps my standards are too high – more on that another time.

Anyway, photos at the end of Ireland and Lily at 1 year if you are interested. Here is my favourite:

A couple of Lily videos also currently being uploaded to Lily Tube

Dublin Time Lapse Video

I found this fantastic time lapse video of Dublin. It is great quality. I must work out how to do this now. He even managed to make Dublin look clean!

Feck off rain…


In what other country could you get away with an advert like this?

And yes, before you ask it is raining this morning!
