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

Last post....

Hello all,
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,

Happy New Year! Gott Nytt År!

Happy New Year everybody, Gott Nytt År allihopa.
I hope that 2017 is a good year for all of us.

A few photos of us at midnight on New Year's Eve:

Above: my Donegal wheel, from Johnny Shiels Spinning Wheels, Carndonagh, Co. Donegal.

Above: Selfie with my two youngest and me

Finally, a shot of 3rd daughter plus me, talking out of the side of my mouth, and my wheel. 

I hope that you all had a great Christmas and New Year. We had a peaceful Christmas here, glad to have all of us back together again, and to take time to relax. 
 There has been great sadness also, as 2016 and cancer claimed the lives of two young mothers. May they rest in peace. 

I am hoping to continue with the weight loss and the getting fit. I also just want to get more crafting done, especially  knitting and spinning and weaving. 

Other than that I am happy to observe life and nature outside my window in this quiet corner of the Irish country side.
