Yes, I really am THIS EXCITING ...

Earlier today it was lovely and sunny, and (on someone's very sound advice) I went out for a bit today (despite being more in the mood to take a nap).

I went and sat on a bench by the Liffey (first thing this morning when I opened my bedroom curtains I saw a man sitting on one of the benches reading a paper and I thought to myself - I'd like to do that some morning! So when I went out I went straight for the benches). No swans were seen today (while waiting around the day I got here I saw a pair of swans swimming up the river - though I am told this is not their usual haunt, they apparently prefer Phoenix Park). But it was nice to sit in the sun, the occasional cool breeze on my face, and watch the sun shimmer on the water (while ignorning the interruption of a few bits of floating trash here and there).

Anyway, enjoyed it for about 20 mins. or so, then walked across the Ha'penny Bridge to a little shop and picked up the TP and paper towels I was in need of (and some other exciting items, like eggs). I did manage to get some postcards there - and stamps (though I asked/paid for 7 and am pretty sure I was handed only 5 stamps - but I will double check my purse in case they slipped down somewhere).

But by mid afternoon it looked like this outside:



And so I decided to stay put, make the scrumptious repast pictured below for my dinner (which I have just finished eating), and watch some tv:


In a little while I will go to bed early because I have not been sleeping well (partly jet lag ... partly the gang of carrolling drunk girls that seemingly circled both sides of the Liffey between the Ha'penny Bridge and O'Connell St, not once but twice last night at 2.30am .... and partly because I cannot sleep in a quiet room (no tv in the bedroom), and I've got some kind of Edgar Allen Poe Tell-Tale Heart thing going on with the kitchen clock.

Oh, so jealous. Of the rain, the vacation, and the sammy/ice water combo.
