A blog by an Irishwoman, written in both English and Swedish, depending on what humour is on me....
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

  2. hi valerie,
    just going back through old blogposts to see if I had replied to all comments, and shame on me, i hadn't replied to your comment here;
    well, it's December now and I hope your trip to Ireland went well,
    these days it's snow and ice we have to deal with, not rain...
    Truth to tell, I'd love a bit of mild weather, with our usual wind and rain!
    Hope all well with you in France,
