Oh What A night!!!!! FANTASTIC!


WOW!!!! Never posted last night as it was late when I got to bed and I was Knackered and I SLEPT!!!! I felt so normal, no panic, no bad palps...only thing that really got me heart pounding is when I rreally gave it what for on the bodhran ( irish drum)It's actually a good work out!!!.... Paul was fantastic on the harmonica and I played a little tune on my guitar "you may travel far from your own native home".... My great freinds Andrea and Cal came in the morning and helped me prepare the food and cook it too, although Paul did the stew....this was the menu... Guiness and Steak stew, Colchannon (which is mashed potatoes with shredded green cabbage, spring onions, bacon and half a pint of cream and good wedge of irish butter), soda bread and caramalised onions, for pud we had Baileys cheesecake and Bannoffee Pie (made by myself...stunning) ... and lots of flowing guinness and whisky and I had some lovely Alcohol free Pear cider...was lovely! So we played and sang untill 1am. We like the gusets to join in so we always get other easy instruments out like the spoons, bones and even the old wash board came out which was funny...... and Linda sat in the corner and at the end of every song rang an old bar bell we had... It was a great nite...loved it...anxiety free after a while of getting into it...Even Libby and her freinds came and enjoyed it too....... which was nice as I want Lib to inherit the love of the irish folk and English folk too.....
Any how for dinner we have the left overs YUM!!! so thats been my day yesterday...Thanks Robert for the comment (what's the translation of that!)....bye guys

In memory of nanny Liz and Grandad Mike Collins to celebrate the wonderful people, the Irish!
