    On Dollymount Strand on a hot summer’s day
    Herself with the suncream and bronze tanning spray.
    Says I to the mot, ‘Would you ever go’way…
    sure that stuff is only for nancies’.

    And the sun oh the sun
    Shone down on me bum
    The Broadsheet commenters thought it great fun.
    Says one ‘Turn him over cause he’s nearly done.
    The poor ould fella’s red as a beetroot.

      Hah! Very good!

      I have turned my aircon up full, which basically means I have opened all the windows and am wishing for a breeze. I think the outside is forbidden places until the sun goes down.

        because of baba I have to avoid it, I’d normally be out with a chilled beer, but same as you every window open blinds down, cruel cruel fate :)

          Ah now Janet, you of all people should know, it’s windows open at night and early morning, and everything closed up tight during the day.

          And how is baba, my lady? I hope well, and if I have my timings right, probably growing frighteningly fast :-)

          Recently I have been thinking of babas, after a few interesting conversations with my not so little baba. While (and I need to be careful here because I know she will read this) nothing is currently happening, but names have been decided. At least she is better prepared than I was

    TOP TIP to all; this is the week when you make those difficult phone calls, take your driving test, attend an interview, request a pay increase, meet your enemy and absolve past feuds. The sun-kissed Irish will give you what you want.
