Ireland day 0842. Thursday 18 January 2024- Pressing On
Today’s summary Both of us were back at work again today.   It was a shame to be indoors when it was a beautiful day outside, but that’s the choice we make.   A quiet evening afterwards, and we didn’t venture out because the flat was warm and it was freezing outside!
Today’s weather Cold clear sunny and dry.   Hardly any wind.   Appx 2c

Today was another of those days where not a lot dramatic happened, so there isn’t much to write about.

Val was back at work in the museum, and I was over in the office.   It was a bit of a shame to be confined indoors on a brilliant day like today – but it’s not going to be for ever.   Also, it was very cold outside.   Probably some of the coldest weather we have had since we came to Ireland – though still no real snow.

I managed to make more progress on the report I am writing, and the end seems to be coming into sight.   But by 5pm this evening, the office workmen were back and once again started drilling up the floor (I have no idea what they are doing) so I packed my bags and drove back to Malahide.   I did notice that there was still some light in the sky as I left the office tonight.   I think it’s a little lighter at home-time than it was in the depths of December – another sure sign that the spring is on its way, even if it’s just getting colder and colder at the moment,

Val was already back by the time I returned so we had a healthy dinner of salmon salad together then I did some Spanish homework while she watched a documentary about Catherine of Aragon.   Not a bad day, actually – all things considered.

More deberes this evening.   Not too bad this time!
The green frosty road to work this morning.   It was still icy again by the time I left to come home again in the evening
