Well things have been pretty crappy for me this summer and not least of this is the horrid weather we're having. I think that as far as Ireland goes this is the worst summer on record for forty years. Two weeks ago I had to call out my landlord because there was sparks coming out of the fuse box. That freaked me out but not as much as it did the agent he sent round to tell me there was no hope of am electician on the bank holiday weekend, when fire glue up the wall when he turned it on. Any way that's all fixed now but it really made me think.

In the past when I've felt like this, it's lead to all sorts of bad feelings and I'd end up wanting to end it all.this time I've made a different decision. I'm selling up most of my stuff, storing most of the rest and getting a campervan. I'm going to head over to europe with megan as soon as I can sort out our paper work.

Started selling stuff this week and it's really not as bad as I thought it would new to get rid of it all. Anyhow I'll be around for a while longer and then will prob fall out of touch for a while.

Hope you're OK and had a safe trip. I ended up with 2 weeks off & decided to go to the mountains.
Take care Foggy.

Well hello again everybody.


I've made it as far as France and here I am going to stay. I'm having a lovely time in the sunshine, my puppy is thriving, I'm learning French, and all the daft expats out here want me to teach them how to play the piano.

If I could just sort out a getting my stuff over that I stored up in mom's attic I would be a very happy person. It's not like it's a full load of stuff, because I sold almost everything before I left Ireland. But I do want my violas and my music and a few other knickknacks and the lowest quote I've heard so far is just obscene.

I'm about to sign a lease for a long term rental here, and while I'm ranting I'm going to be looking jolly hard at some of the property
on the market. I don't think I ever want to live in Ireland again. All that rain.
HeYellow and women llo hello hello it's not like it's a full load of stuff that needs to be collected, because I sold almost everything that I needed to before I left Ireland. Ttop it's not like it's a full load of stuff that needs to be collected because I sold almost everything I own It's not like it's a full load of staff are
I have also invested in some software that allows dictation onto my computer. They'll be no stopping me now I've got access to broadband for most of this month's and a microphone so that it doesn't take me hours to type

get ready to get reacquainted. xxx
