It was our first visit home to Roscommon since before Christmas and it was great to catch up with everybody.
We had so many plans leading up to the weekend – swimming with the girls, running the Kilbride 10k, visiting some relatives we haven’t seen in a long while – but due to illness and the weather none of the above materialised. We did fit in quite a bit though and it still felt like a really relaxing weekend.
We were up early on Saturday, out and on the road by 11, which was pretty good for us and a credit to Sam’s organisational skill. Eilish was a godsend and looked after the girls while we walked around town and had a few drinks in the local bars while sitting around the open fire – nice! On Sunday we went out for a long drive, had lunch out and then spent the afternoon catching up with friends. I had planned on running another 10k earlier in the day but it was shitting with rain and I wimped out!
We are back down in a few weeks and, if illness free, plan on taking the girls swimming then.
The below is a selection of photos from the weekend or the week leading up to it. They are all taken from my phone and some are a little out of focus, the downside to mobile blogging I’m afraid.
