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

first snow...

The first snow of winter came to Ireland a few days ago, but we didn't get any until last night, and then only a light dusting.
However, the weather stayed cold all day so the little road is now treacherous and slippy with compacted frozen snow which melted a little during the day but has been freezing again since 6pm.
The cold weather is forecast to stay for the next 4 days, and we'd be just fine if we hadn't gotten the fall of snow, I drove to Adare today for a match and a training session for the daughters, and there was no snow after the first 3 km! I wouldn't mind frost if it wasn't for the snow which will now make driving on this little road not very nice....
Our road is so small it's not a priority for gritting, so we will hardly see any grit trucks this way, although possibly the fact that there's a primary school on the road may mean they will come this way and grit.
Here's hoping that we all manage to get where we need to go tomorrow, safe and sound.
Hope you're all safe and well and warm out there.


  1. Ja nu har nog snön kommit hos många av oss...vi har ett snöväder som heter duga, det bara vräker ner massor av snö. Sen blåser det lite oxå så man blir alldeles frusen i hela kroppen... man skulle vilja gå i ide som björnarna!! ha det så bra. Kram sytanten

  2. Det ser så fint ut med snö, synd bara att det är så kallt! Visst skulle man kunna gå i ide som björnarna, synd att man måste jobba och handla och lämna huset överhuvudtaget!
    Jag skojar bara, jag skulle inte vilja vara tvungen att sitta hemma hela tiden, det är roligast med en bra balans mellan att ta det lugnt hemma, och att få komma ut och träffa folk.
    Nu får du ta det lugnt i snön!
