The time has come again for us to feed the birds.

"our" robin has returned again and the pair of blackbirds and to our surprise we saw that they remembered where the food was left for them.

Yesterday I left out an extra treat of some pear pieces and the female blackbird immediately flew down and gobbled it up and then suddenly our robin swooped down all puffed up and chased the blackbird away. It is amazing to watch such a little bird bully a much bigger bird - and succeed - maybe there is a moral there somewhere?!

The members of the gallery are settling happily into our new premises and I must say it is lovely and bright. The small street we are on now, always has people passing to and fro and we are beside the Halpin Cafe which is always busy.

Here's hoping for a good Christmas for everybody

I was sitting on the sofa last night, down at my feet scattered across the carpet were a variety of shoes - yes the boys are home for the weekend!

Come Monday I will begin the search for:- the tv remote, the weekend papers, my small laptop etc etc.!

But it is lovely to have them home!

Well, I did it again! Geoffrey was in a Dublin hospital for the day on Thursday and I had to pick him up when he was finished.

Finding my way to the hospital was fine, as it is a route I am familiar with but finding my way around the multi storey car park was another matter! The first time I went in I immediately turned the wrong way and had to come out and go in again. The second time was no better going round and round trying to find a space and trying to find the upper level and I was getting more and more bewildered. Finally I spotted a space much to my relief and could park. I wish my sense of direction was better!
