(Summary blog only.   Last full blog was Day 0368).

Yet another day was spent staring at the computer pulling together the data we need for our Irish tax return.   It would be so much more convenient if the UK and Irish tax years were the same!   Anyway some headway was made and hopefully it should be finished – well at least ready to send to the accountants – in a day or two.

But We did manage to slot in a visit to Dublin for another fitting of the suit I’m having made for the wedding later this summer.   It was an altogether stress-free experience and for once I am actually quite enjoying clothes.   We treated ourselves to a coffee and cake in a nearby café before heading back to Malahide and the tax omen.   Along the way, we had a look at the Clerys and Co building (pictured in the banner image at the top) which was a major department store in O’Connell Street and which closed in 2015.   It’s recently been refurbished as a brand-new office / dining / shopping “destination”.   It’s supposed to reopen “in second quarter 2023” so I suppose that means any day now.

Well, once again the day is drawing to a close, so it’s time to break for dinner then perhaps an evening stroll to enjoy the balmy evening air.   Loving it!

Looking downstream from O’Connell bridge Look at this!   Warm and sunny on Tara Street station platform.   No need to shiver in down jackets!   A genuine revelation
We enjoyed refreshments in  a café in the GPO arcade, behind the back of the post office
