Ireland day 0570. Friday 21 April 2023- Suit 3
(Summary blog only. Last full blog was Day 0368).
I’m having a suit made in Dublin, ready for a big family wedding coming up later in the summer. I’ve had two fittings already and the last one was just before I had my hip operation. So Val (who is off work today) and I went back this afternoon for the next fitting before they start putting the lining in – just to see if I had changed shape. It turns out that I had, a bit, in that I am standing up straighter and as a result seem taller. So the shape of the jacket had to be altered a bit to ensure that it will still fit properly. I still have a couple more fittings to go before it’s finished. The next one is in about a month.
Once we had finished at the tailor’s, we went across to the Jervis Centre to do a bit of shopping, then walked down to the Liffey and along the embankment to the EPIC Centre. We had brought packed lunches with us and intended to find a sunny park somewhere to enjoy them. But it was so cold in the wind that we abandoned the idea and headed for the relative comfort of the covered eating area in the EPIC Centre.
After a leisurely lunch and coffee, we just made our way back slowly to Malahide for a relaxing evening in the flat. A quietly successful day, and nice to get a bit of down-time at the end of the day.
