Tulip Season.

Hello.  I feel like the lyrics to that Adele song.  I haven't even managed to write a blog this month and only two last month.  Still its my 85th of the year so its not too bad.

I am not working on the island any more.  May be next year?  How long is a piece of string?  I know.  It was good to have a laugh and a joke with the lads who I worked with.  

I think that's why we blog because its a natter with other people.  I miss a good chat and a natter.  Especially living with rural isolation a lot of the time.

The other day we went over the Cork and Kerry (Tunnel road) to Kenmare.  Aldi and Lidl are smack bang next to each other and there's even a Super Valu supermarket across the road. 

Inside there is a wool shop and the missus wanted some buttons for a cardigan/ jumper for one of her nieces children she's knitting ("knit one, pearl, click, click every night") for Christmas.  She was asked three weeks a go they wanted FOUR jumpers in the Next THREE weeks!   She's on her last one too!



I decided to wait outside and have a look at the pretty flowers on sale outside the supermarket.  There to my amazement were some TULIPS.  Not from Amsterdam but Kerry in November!  The worlds gone mad! 

I have been back walking lots of miles over the hills overlooking the bays and listening to the wireless (crystal set) on my mobile phone.  This track came on the other day and it related to me about what a crazy world we live in with Brexit and Ukraine and it keeps bloody raining and life keep changing, some times not how we want.  Perhaps we could call it: Tulip Season?  You heard it here first!











Hope you're all well and I always read your blogs even when I don't always comment! I hope to keep writing and jump back on the old blog horse again!

  2. Isn't it just Philip? I have been blogging on here since 2010 and I thought of ending it but I miss the comments and writing the blogs. Thanks! Will catch up with all the other blogs I follow.

  3. I wondered what had happened to you Dave. Glad to see you were still reading away there in the background so were still "with" us. The tulips look lovely and strong colours.

  5. A sure sign of spring is on the way those tulips are. In fact in three weeks time the days grow longer! Ok only a minute a day at first. But the right direction!

  7. Welcome home, Dave. Missed your cheerfulness. Tulips are my favourites but not this early! They are symbols of spring not winter but I can forgive anything if they look pretty.

  8. Yes I enjoyed reading from a cats perspective. Very clever. Reminds me of Kafka and his book Metamorphosis. But not so serious. Keep writing your stories!

    1. When the cat tales are over I would like to post the doggy ones which I actually preferred. Trouble is, I can't find them to copy and I don't fancy typing the whole lot again.

  9. Cam you not scan the books on to your computer and then paste and copy them on to your blog? Look forward to reading them.

  10. I am also off and on with writing blogs at the moment, a lot of us seem to be. Not to worry, it is nice to hear from you, and as you say, it is a way to stay in communication with people when one lives a quiet life out in the country.

    Lovely tulips......

  11. Hi Vera. I like reading blogs and writing posts. But sometimes I question why. I went for a walk yesterday. I only spoke to one person on the eight mile walk. So it is a good way of communication like you say. Especially for rural dwellers like ourselves. Thanks!

  13. Natural herbs have cured so many illnesses that drugs and injection can't cure. I've seen the great importance of natural herbs and the wonderful work they have done in people's lives. i read people's testi- monies online on how they were cured of herpes, hiv, diabetics etc by drelinfohherbalhome herbal medicine, so i decided to contact the doctor because i know nature has the power to heal anything. I was diagnosed with herpes for the past 7 years but drelinfohherbalhome@gmail.com cured me with his herbs and I referred my aunt and her husband to him immediately because they were both suffering from herpes and they were cured too .I know it is hard to believe but am a living testimony. There is no harm trying herbs. Contact email. Natural herbs have cured so many illnesses that drugs and injection can't cure.

A Walk Along Probably The Most Scenic And Newest Greenways In Ireland.

a walk along tarmac. Underneath the arches of the bridge.  An old castle. We thought why don't they paint a white line lane  for cyclist...
