We are back home from a week of merriment in beautiful Ireland (hence the low key decorations and lack of tree at home). We celebrated Christmas in a lovely house overlooking the Irish sea...
... where even the kitty got to open her own pressies in front of the peat fire.
We enjoyed lovely pub lunch at Johnnie Fox´s (above photo) and we saw the amazing musical Oliver (by Charles Dickens) in Dublin.
We went for lovely long walks in the mild weather (14C), enjoying the fantastic scenery...
... and the beautiful surrounding gardens. And we stopped for refreshing cups of coffee and tea in the Tower Tea Rooms along our walk.
But all good things must come to an end. We got back home yesterday evening to snowy and cold (-11C) Norway. It has been good to get away for a while, but it is always rather good to come back to warm home fires too.
Thank you for all the lovely Christmas wishes. I trust your Christmas has also been a good one.
