Weekend in RoscommonJanuary 31st, 2012 | Posted by in Post-Travel Posts
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.
