We had a wonderful time in Ireland but are glad to be home. I have a ton of photos to load to the computer and then decide which ones will show off Ireland at its best. It might take a while but I will get to it in the next few days!
Breakfast this morning was back to the 2 slices of fruit loaf with marmalade and a mug of coffee. A HUGE difference to what we've been eating for breakfast in the last week - grapefruit segments, a glass of orange juice, a "full Irish breakfast" consisting of 2 slices of bacon, 2 sausages, a slice of white pudding, a slice of black pudding, (Douglas doesn't do white/black puddings so he got 3 sausages), beans/mushrooms and a fried egg followed by toast - 2 slices each - with butter and jam and a pot of coffee between us.
Crumbs! No wonder we didn't eat much for the rest of the day! Also, no wonder I didn't lose that half stone I was hoping to! Mind you, I didn't gain anything so that's not so bad!
