chat-a-while-with Joy

Back from Ireland.

Hi got back from Ireland safe and sound had a wonderful time...i love that place so beautiful and peaceful.
The weather was pretty bad though..lots of rain but it was still lovely.

Went up the Connor pass on the mountain road a really wonderful place with spectacular views in good weather, but we hit a lot of really bad rain, we were up in the clouds as they were so low that day... couldn't see a hand in front of us, the fog came down so quickly..very eerie...there was a sheer drop the one side... then up ahead as we got closer we saw lots of car lights...some idiot had only tried to take a huge wagon laden with heavy machinery up the narrow pass and had got completely stuck in between the rocks, it just couldn't move...some of the folk had been there over an hour, and couldn't get a line on their mobiles (cell phones) to get help, it would have been nigh on impossible and really dangerous to reverse all the way back down the pass again (especially with that sheer drop) i was really spooked, in the end decided to do a multi point turn in the narrow road and go back that way, very scary...but afterwards everyone decided to do the same....we would probably still have been up there if not !!!..it put well over an hour onto our journey but at least we were safe.
I do hope i can get the hang of sending pictures onto my blog as i have some lovely ones to show you.

I can't wait to see the ones you took of your Mom & Aunty, i bet they are funny...Kerry you are a wind up !!!

I was so sorry to hear about your Uncle Mike i do hope he is on the way to a complete recovery now, it must have ben great going to San Francisco, but i wish it had been under better circumstances for you....that is one place i would really love to visit, id it a very long way from you ?? i think it must be.

I am off to Vanessa's on Monday for the week as she is on holiday and i am looking after the Dog, Cats and Luke as he as just started a new job and doesn't want the time off yet.

Jimmy is still seperated from Polly, i don't think they will get back together now,..he is very sad and Lost,...but better now than when they were married with children...things have been very stormy with them for a long time now and i was worried, but he is so sad at the moment.

Anyway i will get into my day now i have loads to do...hope to hear from you soon.
Take Care...Love Joy.
