  • Cobwebs and Cabbages 1 week ago It’s been a fantastic few days as far as the weather is concerned. It certainly makes a nice change from the flooded roads of last week.

Magnumlady's blog is the one I most look forward to. Her updates are mostly funny, sometimes having a wee rant, and generally a one-woman guide to Sligo and surrounding counties. I've been introduced to all sorts of places and activities. Oh to have the energy and time to keep up with you Val. You're an amazing lady.
