Home Sweet Home

I arrived home about an hour ago and decided to do a very quick post to say I've had a lovely time in Dublin with Beccy, Joules and the children. I am always amazed at how quickly a week flies by when you are having fun. The weather was not brilliant and I did not get to take as many photos as I would have liked but I have a few to share with you in the next week or so.

Last Tuesday I asked you to have a guess at who lived behind these gates. There were some great guesses, from Posh Spice (I don't see her in Dublin, not enough sun!), Maeve Binchey (I believe she lives in Dalkey , Gloria Hunniford, to The Edge, Westlife and even Molly Malone (there is a statue of 'the Tart with a Cart' at the end of Grafton Street).

However the answer was of course BONO and the first person to guess correctly was johng. So although I wasn't intending this to be rewarded with a prize if you send me your address John a little piece of tat will come your way!!

My co-workers tell me I look like Bono when I'm wearing my sun glasses. (similar to his, I guess)

Can I go to Ireland with you next time?
