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

One more lie-in, then it starts all over again.
So 2013 is here and tonight is the 5th of January, already, can you believe it!
There is only one more lie-in tomorrow morning before we all go back to school and work on Monday 7th, and so tomorrow is to be treasured. (Husband has been back at work since last Wednesday, poor man, struggling to work in the morning while we all lie on and sleep till 10am!)
We have taken down the Christmas decorations, my eldest daughter did that yesterday with the help of young son. We could probably have left the decorations up until tomorrow afternoon, as tomorrow is the end of Christmas in Ireland, it is the Epiphany tomorrow. But I love to clear the stuff out of the living room and get a few days of living in clear space without trees and lights etc before I go back to work.
I wanted to add photos to this blog, but I haven't succeeded since I changed to the new Blogger layout, this is frustrating me a little bit, as I really enjoy looking at other people's photos in their blogs. I feel that my blog has too many words at present and not enough pictures. I will have to give the photo-loading instructions another go, maybe I will get it the next time. Although I don't think I can't try it tonight, as there are daughters waiting for their turn on the laptop, my laptop, as I remind them.
Today I saw for the first time this year some new cars registered this year. In Ireland you know what year cars are registered by the first numbers in their reigstration plate. Last year cars had 12 as their first digits. This year there's a slight change, it will be 131 for cars registered in first 6 months of 2013 and then 132 for cars in second half of 2013. Rumour has it that this is to avoid a slump in car sales, which might have happened if superstitious people refused to buy a car with 13 in the reg.
Today I saw this reg: 131 D 1331. D stands for Dublin. That's an impressive number plate!
Wishing you all the best for the new year!
