 HWSBO and the children are on their way home from Dublin. They’ve been ‘Trick-or Treating’ on Grandma’s road. This is another annual event where all her grandchildren meet up to party! My Mother in Law always does a good job decorating her house, while Grandad (who is a ‘few’ years older) makes himself scarce and keeps a low profile!

87 hits short of the Big 7,000!

 Its my Father-in-Laws 81st birthday today. So, when I have done my usual mundane household chores, we will head off for Dublin to his house and meet up with all the family. My Hubby is the eldest of eleven children. All will be there bar one…she lives in London and works for the BBC. We all chipped in to buy him a new plasma T.V. screen for his new conservatory. He will be delighted! 😆
