A week in pictures:

Busy busy busy…

There is a large black spider underneath the water bottle. I put the bottle on top of it. All by myself.

Rhubarb crumble. Delicious.

Not pictured, and I have no idea why: Drinks and a visit to St Fagans with Chris, the ferry journey to and from Wales, the lovely cottage we stayed in, the delicious beer we drank (proper beer (ie Ale) is hard to find in Ireland), all the delicious food we ate, Cheryl‘s lovely new home in the Dublin mountains, and much, much more.

It’s been a busy week, and I don’t see a let up in the fun just yet.

  1. I am liking the spider tactics. Cover it up, walk away, have somebody else deal with it later. Fiona is always doing this to me (not covering me with giant water bottles–covering spiders with the plastic tops of hairspray bottles, etc, and leaving them for me to dispose of). I quiz her about the karmic implications of flushing all those living things down the toilet and she assures me they all go to a special underwater place where they can be truly happy and free of human…entroublement.

  2. I’m with you on the spider. You can even SEE it in the photo under that water bottle. Yuck. Good for you. It must be spider season, everyone is finding huge ones right now. (we did, too–stuck a jar of hand cream over it.)

  3. They were talking about that contraption on the sheep this morning on Today fm fix it friday!! Apparently you can get a set of different coloured crayons for it, so the farmer can change the colour of the crayon to see that the ram is doing the business…..

  4. You lucky gal. I went to St. Fagan when I visited Cardiff in ’05. Definately worth the time to go through it all. Nothing like some quality time with yarn, drinks, and a friend, is there?

  5. Umm… you do know what that thing on the sheep is, right?

    I’m guessing here, but I’d say that it’s a piece of chalk … which will mark the back of any ewe he gets to know (in the biblical sense), so that the farmer can keep track of these things.
