Ireland day 0826. Tuesday 02 January 2024- Working Day
Today’s summary Val and I were both at work – me in the office most of the day and Val firstly at the museum and then at the castle.   But it’s the last night of Wonderlights tonight so the pressure soon will come off her a bit.   Then she’s at the pub to celebrate.   I went on a short stroll in the evening and thought about holiday plans for later in 2024.
Today’s weather Very dull and rainy most of the day though a bit drier in the evening.  Moderate southerly wind.   Appx 9c

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

There’s not a lot to report from today, to be honest.   Val went off to work at the Casino first thing, and I set off shortly afterwards to drive round to the office.   She was working up at the castle again in the evening but I wasn’t back from my work at the time she flew through the flat on the way from Job 1 to job 2.   Luckily thanks to Mr Tesco we had a couple of ready meals in the fridge so it was just a question of pop-popping one into the microwave and she had an instant hot dinner (albeit probably ultraprocessed).   But it’s her last night at Wonderlights for this season (much to her relief I think – it’s been a long slog).   They are off to the pub later on for a “quick” celebratory drink so I’ll expect her back sometime after midnight(!)

My own day was quite productive in the office though sadly it didn’t involve going to the pub afterwards.   Once I was home again, I had my own pop-pop meal and then spent a few idle moments planning a possible holiday for later this year.   Looking out of the window on a dark damp cold evening (with the rainfall radar always seeming to show more wet weather to come) the idea of somewhere warm and sunny does seem rather appealing I have to admit.

I’m going to clock off now, and head out to get some fresh air.   I feel like I very much need it, after a day cooped up behind the computer.   Over and out till tomorrow!
