Alas, CC Is Gone

Ten minutes ago, hubby took off speeding in his trusty car with my BFF (I have a lot of them scattered throughout the US of A) to the airport.

I am left feeling a bit deflated.

What on earth will I do today?

Feeling lonely and bereft.

It’s a good job that I am meeting another BFF’s son tomorrow (from Seattle no less). Then I must buy pearls for my mother.  90th birthday party is this weekend.

If I sound a bit scattered, it is because I am.

I will miss CC’s OMFG did you see this on twitter? I made her coffee this morning and she told me to look at Rachel Maddow. That damn woman was up all night.

A great time was had by all, but I forgot to take pics of the food.

Today we did Dalkey. CC was supposed to be flying out this morning but the storm in the US meant her flight was cancelled.

With heavy hearts we traipsed out to Dalkey.

Our Day In Howth In Pictures

So CC and I went to Howth today. First off we needed food.

We had to have fish and chips – just because. The fish was the nicest fish I have ever eaten.

The fishes come from the sea.

Sea what I did there.

Well we walked about 20 yards up the marina and then decided enough was enough. We would tackle the town.

We decided to do the scenic walk but didn’t make it too far. We were knackered after a little bit of a walk up the hill  and had dissolved into giggles, so had to stop for a fag.

Making soup now. Tomorrow we are doing tapas with a friend of mine.

The end.

Tiny little expresso mugs bought in the Avoca Handweavers. Did hubby seriously think I was only going to have a coffee?

CC has arrived in Dublin from Miami Beach and I am now the proud owner of a pussy hat.

We’re going to paint this town pink!  🙂
