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

I decided to pick up my exercise regime again, with my first trip to the gym in over a week this morning.

While I was plugging away on the exercise bike, Val did a bit of baking and later headed into town to visit the Museum of Literature Ireland (MoLi – one of our go-to places in Dublin, especially the garden and café).   After the gym, I took the DART and joined Val at MoLi and we had a packed lunch in the garden followed by tea and cake in the café.

By this time it was past 5pm, so we didn’t linger but headed back to Malahide.   In the evening, I did a bit more paperwork and then we finished off the chicken from yesterday and settled down to enjoy a bit of TV (streamed – as we don’t actually have a television).

The former Kildare Street (Gentlemen’s) Club is a rather grand red brick building built around 1860 at the north end of Kildare Street.   Today it houses part of the National Library of Ireland, the Alliance Français and a Chez Max bistro Mum (or dad – it’s hard to tell ) and cygnets enjoying lunch on the lawns of St Stephen’s Green
