Today me & my hubs and my brother and his beloved,went to 'Bloom in the park' which is Irelands equivalent to Chelsea flower show, though not so posh! I had a fabulous time including lush strawberries & cream. We walked from my brothers house which is beside Dublin Phoenix park to Bloom, we walked around all the show gardens, including a fabulous one made by 'Aware' the depression society, and another created by homeless people. There was also the usual aray of German & Japanese inputs. Must say some German people skipped a queue I was in, for free low fat yoghurt & pineapple (very cheeky) but then my hubs skipped then too, so I just gave up!
Must get back to point of this blog, oh yeah I remember, last year I wanted to go, but was daunted by all the walking I would have to do, and knew I would ruin it or make myself miserable. I was fantastic this year, and only got sore ankles & feet walking home after four hours to my brothers house! I said to Dan is'nt it remarkable the improvement, he actually has very sore hip & was limping all afternoon & quite crankly, I have to say and I know it was mean, but I said 'now you know how I feel with RA' . Well, that remark set off a right hissy fit! Anyway suffice to say after 32 years together, I finally accept Gardens & flowers & crafts are not his thing!!!! Especially as the poor love was in pain!
Anyway, Donal my bro also had sore feet, he has psoriasis and asked me a lot about MTX & Humira. they made us a lovely dinner, and then took out a Bong type thing they got in Istanbul and we all tried some apple/cinnamon smoke - apparently its the big thing in Turkey!
My daughter then rang to say our little pug Milly had come into season , so I had to rush home & deal with all that entails!!!
