    @mollyka............Mikey hasn't really been digging.............he does a lot of sniffing though. Perhaps he's waiting for the day its all done and then he'll run amok.
    We're just come back from our lunchtime drag around the big field. When I say drag its because he suddenly stops and won't move until he's sniffed, examined every blade of grass and found a suitable tree to have a pee and then we can come home.
    My arms are getting longer with the tugging and I'm getting hoarse from saying 'you've sniffed that bit can we move on'.................but using fruitier language as the kids are all at school.
    It could be worse, I could be filing.

    @techie - so sorry to hear that news - remember the good times to help you through these bad times

    Am I the only one who enjoyed empty roads + the peace & quiet during lockdown. Everyone enjoying the simple pared back life ?
    My life changed very little during lockdown 'cos I worked right through but I did enjoy the less manic, less 'doing' pace of life.

    Now Ireland will get back to 'normal'

    Interesting thoughts on 'coffee culture' @mollyka - the Irish 'ol lads may become like the Greek men who sit outside little tavernas drinking strong coffee of a day ( I doubt it somehow )

    Where is Stirls - is she ok ?

    I hope there was no damage to the car Rustop?

    Isn't Drogheda where Jill Meagher came from? Murder of Jill Meagher - Wikipedia

    You'll remember that of course, @Guitarista I was in Melbs that weekend around that area. Horrendous. That poor bloody girl and her family.

    Yes I think that was where she was from...it's a big town up the road from me.

    Morning and waves to the world,
    That's horrendous, Bridgee. Poor lassie and her family. How did they cope and I wonder how are they coping now?

    @mollyka.........its nearly lunchtime then you'll be free. I was most disappointed I didn't get a lolly for being a good girl. I know I said I was tired after my but looking back I'm wondering if it was an adrenaline dump. I'd worked myself into a panic about it all. The nurses and doctors were so calming.............I felt a bit foolish.

    We get to see our lovely Jenny and equally lovely fiance Adam on Monday.

    Even more exciting they're starting on the new fence tomorrow.

    @stirly-girly............where are you sweetheart?

    Good morning JC, Molly and all to come. Most people on my crochet group were fine after vaccine, only one felt really tired and achy but she has underlying condition. Will be strange going back to work Molly but after a few days will be as if you never left. Agree with you Satz, roads are crazy and car parks at woods overcrowded. Found lockdown a lot easier. How are you getting on with Gerard? Only thing I find annoying is counting calories but then I hear his voice saying “well how did not counting work for you?”. Not so well so I’ll suck it up.

    Car is fine Bridget, just bulbs and a few other things. Got my walk done and now need to do the dreaded grocery shop.

    Re: Army Garrison April 2021

    Afternoon...just home from work..virtually had a panic attack ...couldn't remember passwords or usernames..couldn't even get into library management system for about an hour...dozen or so emails asking for ...seeds.....SEEDS??? I ignored same...robbed a few books and came home..off for my vaccine in an hour...
    An old pal was on asking if Joe had his vaccine yet...apparently herself and her husband signed up with HSE to do meals on wheels last March so they'd get a fast track vaccine (they are cute hoors..always trying to be one up)..but in the meantime the system changed to age priority and because they were registered as frontline workers they can't register a second time anyone else i'd feel sorry for but......??
    Anyway when I told her not only Joe had his but I'm getting mine today (I'm well younger than both of them)...think it was the last straw...oh dear! Laters lovelies xx

    They didn't cope, and it should never have been allowed to happen. And I do mean 'allowed'. Bailey was a well known repeat violent offender who should not have been on the streets. Hideous, evil man. There was (and still is) intense public rage about that case. It comes up over and over again even almost a decade later.
