For Mark And Jenny

hazelHad a family party at my house today. The youngest was 10 months and the oldest was 88 years old. THAT WOULD BE MY MUM, WHO READS MY BLOG! There were about 18 family members. I have spent the last few days cooking and cleaning (I gave up on the grouting.)

I went Mexican. It was a success!!!

Cheering on my twin brother and my little sister who are both running the Dublin marathon tomorrow.

And we ain’t young!

So, I haven’t been keeping up with the news as usual.

Hillary kicked them to kingdom come, and that is fine by me.

    Good luck to your brother and sister!

  2. My sweet mom only made it to 87. Enjoy every moment you have with your Mum and grill her with a zillion questions about her life, her parents and grandparents and anything else you can think of. IG’s Mum – – I don’t mean she should interrogate you under bright lights. Hold out for a nice meal, a promise of new slippers, etc.

    I can’t think of a more lovely reason not to pay attention to the news. 🙂

    No grouting? Sounds like you had a great time. Hope the sibs did great today! Give Mum a big hug and tell her Hi from me! We old gals need love too! Mmmmm Mexican food! Have 5 trays of hot peppers in the dehydrator right now. Smells wonderful. Going to be a good winter!

    My sister knocked 30 minutes off her PB. She was absolutely delighted. She had run the London marathon previously. Her friend who also travelled from England with her had a PB too, and this was her tenth marathon.

    My poor brother was running his first marathon and found it very difficult to keep his stride with the sheer number of the crowd running. He started cramping at 17 miles and soldiered on as best he could. He found another guy in the same condition as him and they kept each other going. So Dave from Dublin and Mark from Cork formed an alliance. For the last few miles they walked and jogged. Dave then told my brother when the end was in sight to go ahead without him. Mark refused. His time was irrelevant at that point. It was 4.16 in the end.

    They crossed the finishing line holding hands.
