I can see you have been busy blogging away without me. Missed you all. My sister & I took our mum of 83 to Wexford which is south east of Dublin for a 3 day mid week break and we had a FANTASTIC time! I drove (my little automatic) on its first trip, we just relaxed in the fabulous memory foam mattress beds, and slept in afternoon, got up when suited and did some sight seeing. I think that little trip has restored my self confidence, first time in 3 years I have done something totally on my own (well mum & sis) but not husband & family. Realised I could get a case in and out of car, could ask for help from staff in hotel and get it! Only one thing, we stayed an extra night and too late I realised it was methroxate day!!! ah to hell I just took it next day, made no difference, and I had a good few glasses of wine, a few warm glasses of wine ,in room with my sis who is 60 this year, god we laughed, this is terrible, but my ole mum said that a terrible 'satsuma' in Japan. We did'nt realise at time was such a tradgedy, we laughed and laughed! Anyway, just left my sis to airport, on her way back to Oxford, I miss her already!
