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

where does the time go?!!

So, people, far and near, I can't quite believe how fast the time is going...
September came and went and it's already the 11th of October!!!
We will have a week off from Monday 25th of October, that will be very welcome. The challenge will be to use the time wisely... possibly the best use of the time would be to do as much as I can beforehand, and not leave any major things to do for the week off, coz life has a way of getting in the way!
Needless to say work on the knitting and spinning front is going very slowly, I do love the feel of knitting a few lines, it relaxes me, but I'm not getting to do that often enough.
I'm stuck on the same novel since August, and I still see things around the garden that I thought I would have sorted out during the summer but didn't. Ah well, the winter will kill the weeds..... and the cow and bull who are grazing in the next field have trimmed my hedge beautifully for me!
Autumn weather now, the nice kind, a big High Pressure parked over Ireland giving us a foggy morning this morning, a real pea-souper of a fog, and then a gorgeous afternoon when it finally cleared. the evening was lovely, I went out for a walk along our road, armed with a hurley, in case those two barking dogs up the road jumped out at me, I hate new dogs that bark at you!!!
We are going to benefit from this High Pressure for the rest of the week, instead of the usual series of Low Pressures that sweep in from the Atlantic Ocean, bringing rain.
Week ahead not too bad, in relative terms, but gotta go to the Dentist and the Hygienist on Thursday, that'll be fun (not...)
plenty of sports on with the kids, but that's ok, I'm happier out in the air than inside looking at laundry to be sorted!!!
I haven't had time to do much web wandering, I peek at your blogs, but feel too overwhelmed to begin writing sensible witty entertaining comments, so then I don't leave any comment, oh the pressure to be clever!!!! (only joking...)
Hope you are well, my 'regulars' know who they are,
Apologies to L'frua in K'stad for not replying sooner, I hope the new TV is great!
good night


  1. Oh, I feel the same - it seems like the days just flows by without me noticing at all!
    Thank you so much for the good wishes for our marriage :)

  2. Hej Hege!
    here i am with a very late reply to your comment in my blogg, indeed the days have flown by and can you believe it, it's December, and in 3 weeks from today it'll be Christmas Day!
    In Ireland we celebrate Christmas on 25th, but because I'm married to a Swede we'll have a swedish dinner on Julafton as well as turkey and ham on Christmas, so 2 Christmasses to celebrate!
    Hope all well with you in Troms!
