Evening folks 🤗

What a beautiful weekend it has been eh ?!

What have you been doing with this weather ?

I took a few days out with just me and the littlest and headed out to the home house ..

We spent two days doing absolutely nothing and it was glorious 😎

I had a lot to digest with our recent trip to Temple Street and sometimes just being in the countryside is the best medicine 😍

The littlest enjoyed his time with grandparents and uncles and aunts not to mention his first 'float' ever 🤣

For those of you who have no idea what a float is ; it was a magical drink our mammy used to make us on special occasions as kiddies cream ,fizzy drink and sprinkles...of course the grandkids don't have to wait for special occasions for such wonderful treats 🙄 🙄

Guess that's the glory of being a grandparent,eh ?! 🤐🤣😂

This week we've alot more to deal with; our littlest is graduating ( can you imagine 🤩), the heat wave won't sit well with the boss , the middle one is driving me nuts about being bored and the littlest has some operations (minor) coming up for him which he is 'looking forward to 'cos he can go to the playroom' 😅

And this is the LAST week of school ....

I've to do all my writing and editing before Friday basically 😮🙄😏

Ya; two hopes of that happening ...

A few snaps below of the last few days at home doing nothing yet enjoying everything 😎

Thanks mammy and daddy for the lovely few days 😍

Hello folks 🤗

We've been busy these past few days with a few new firsts for our family 🤗

We are just back from a family break 😎

A break for us all.

This wasn't a typical family break ; this was a stay in Ethans hotel ...a beautiful tribute to the wonderful folks up at LauraLynn – Ireland’s Children’s Hospice 😍

We were nervous bringing the boys up as this was their first time and only our second.

There was no need to be nervous .

The boys began calling lauralynn Ethans hotel as soon as we drove into the grounds.

We were all spoiled as soon as we got there.

No ask was too much no request too big .

We had a fun filled day out thanks to lauralynn in the knowledge that Ethan was being cared for and loving it 😍🤣

Ethan enjoyed two sensory baths and a had a bit of a music session 😆😊

To those who work in Lauralynn you really are amazing people and to those who fundraise and to those who give to lauralynn-- thank you all ; without you folks we would not have the opportunity to just simply be a regular family.

He's a funny fur ball.

He will tell you when it's time to play , rest and feed him.

He's bossy.

He growls at our dog but let's her around him. ( very accomindating of him considering it's HER home ) 🤣🤣🤣

He loves the kids rubbing him under his chin.

He loves his belly scratched but most of all he loves his bed and your bed ...

He's been in my home for almost 2 weeks.

He's easy please making it easy to like him.

I helped hand feed him when he was a kitten .

My big brother feel in love with him and decided he was going to give this little kitten a forever home .

And for 8 years my brother and his Beckett Cat were room mates .

Beckett Cat has a special diet but it's easily managed once you take the time to understand that he needs special food and once in awhile an extra bit of TLC too .

My brother understood this and took the best possible care of Mr Beckett Cat until he couldn't...

My brother was taken to A & E and is now thankfully in better health than he was but it's a long road to recovery.

He is in hospital and may be there for awhile yet .

Mr Beckett Cat is currently in my kitchen wondering where his home comforts are and where his daddy is 💔

When my brother leaves the hospital he will not be in any shape to care for Beckett Cat due to his own illness.

My brother is obviously devastated.

Why am I sharing this ?

I told a taxi man earlier today about what was bothering me and why he was picking me up at the hospital ( he did ask FYI!..and sure I love nothing more than sharing a story 😉)

Don't taxi drivers make great therapists?

This Taxi man, in particular did me a great kindness today ; he wished my brother well and me luck in rehoming Mr Beckett Cat . He brought me from the Galway hospital over to Roscam , a fare which costs over 15 Euro and insisted I pay only 5.

This isn't about the money( although that was very very kind ) but about what he said - " I will keep your brother in my prayers and the balance of this fare , I will get a mass said in his name; the cat will be ok . You're doing enough"

Maybe I am , maybe I am not but what I am sure of is that my brother loves that cat and I can finally see ,why 😿 He is a charmer 😍

Beckett Cat is currently floating around Facebook land over on Galway Cat Rescue page ...

We have hope he will be rehomed 🤞

Please , if you can help , do .

Thank you all so much for sharing, reading and commenting 😍😘

  1. Did you ever find out what the canteen lady’s name was? I have 2 aunts who work there and was just wondering if it was one of them. Because the way you describe her sounds like them both. But all the staff are so kind and get little or no recognition for the job they do. So from myself and the many times I’ve spent overnight with my 3 boys (ESPECIALLY my eldest son now 18) thank you ladies from the bottom of my heart xxxx

    1. Hey Suzanne! Yes I did indeed. Nora is the lovely ladies name! Yoou’re absolutley right, there are many amazing ladies and gents working there, that’s for sure. Thank you so much for taking the time to get in contact. Wishing you and your boys well x
