En blogg av en irländska, skriven på svenska och engelska.
Just scroll down to find the English bits among the Swedish, or vice versa.
Ta Gaeilge agam freisin, más é an rud é go bhfuil éinne eile le Gaeilge ag léamh mo bhlagsa.
Ich verstehe auch ein bisschen Deutsch, je parle un petit peu francais och klarar av lite norska med.
Wondering about the background of the blog? They're the Cliffs of Moher, in the neighbouring county, County Clare, 8km long, 700m high, and magnificent. Well worth a visit if anyone is around the West of Ireland

yes, a Spinning blog, just because I found that I was writing more about Spinning on the blog Mitt Liv på Irland. My Life in Ireland.
Now it turns out that I am writing mostly about life in our house during the CoVid-19 school closure, and not so much about Spinning, but I am still mostly over on https://spinmeayarnireland.blogspot.com/
so yes everyone is welcome to pop over and have a read of my thoughts and doings.

Why do I spend my evening on this and my other blog when I really have a ton of stuff to do?
I am such a procrastinator.
Spring is coming, even though the weather has been dismal the last while.
Snow and ice warning for tomorrow , as well as the floods we have already had in parts of Ireland. (not us personally, thankfully)
Sleep well good folk,
I just want to say that life is very good, when one can look out at a sunset at 6pm instead of 4,30pm and when one has a bit of dark chocolate to munch on with a cup of tea.

After nearly 8 years, I have decided to write what I believe will be my last post in this blog. I am well aware that I have not been tending my blog at all as well as one should do, it is months and months since I posted.
I went over to Facebook and that took all my time. Well now I am glad to say that I am off Facebook. I have tentatively started a blog called Spin Me A Yarn Ireland, where I plan to post about spinning and textile history etc, as I go along. At least on Blogger the info is easier to scroll back through and reread.
So hop on over to my spinning blog https://spinmeayarnireland.blogspot.ie/
if you are interested in that area of endeavour. If not, fare well my friends and keep well. I may pop up again and comment on your blogs now that I have left the all-consuming Facebook behind,

I hope that 2017 is a good year for all of us.
A few photos of us at midnight on New Year's Eve:

I went back to work last May after the surgery in April, and all is very well now. I had no complications. I started Slimming World also in May and so far I have lost 2 stone, that is about 13 kilos. I am very happy with that. Onwards and upwards (or downwards, hopefully, the weight anyway).
We have 2 daughters in college now. Both are going to University of Limerick, which is about 20 mins drive from here. They stay in town, near the University, so they can live the student life and so I do not have to buy and pay for a car for them. Parking is a problem in the University, so it is just as easy to have the girls within walking distance of the University.
I am back at school again. My husband just got a new job.
I am still very interested in spinning and learning to weave, and knitting and all fiber things. I may allow this blog to go into hibernation, as I just want to follow the Spinning wherever it takes me.
I hope all of you out there are well and I am looking forward to reading your blogs after this post.
In the meantime, if you are on Facebook, you can find my FB page if you search for Spin Me A Yarn Ireland. The photo should be a purple and yellow skein of wool.
That's all for now folks!

This too will pass. I am reading new books and rereading some old favourites. I am getting some knitting done. I hope to do some weaving or spinning next week when I am stronger.
I am glad to be home and glad to have people to look after me!
