Can’t believe it’s September already

Time has really flown this year – just can’t believe it’s September already. I haven’t got my Christmas cake baked either – normally get that done and dusted before August is out.

Luckily, the weather here is still really nice. We had visitors last week and were able to spend time outdoors without gumboots, galoshes and great coats. It was a busy week. We went to Dublin zoo, Glendalough (beautiful) where we had a picnic and a long stroll around the lakes with the Wicklow mountains all around;  a picnic at Brittas Bay having fun with a kite and a paddle in the sea, a day at Newgrange—an ancient monument built during the stone age, plus a bit of  shopping at Whitewater and the Kildare Village Outlet. Busy but fun. I have lots of photos on my phone but haven’t had a chance to download them yet but will over the weekend.

We also tried our hands with Russian icing nozzles. Look on You Tube for how they work and the beautiful results you can get with them.

And look here to see not so perfect results! 🙂 They went down a treat despite looking like eggs aliens hatch out of.

Well, visitors going today so the washing machine will be earning its keep for a few hours.

I’ll be pottering around the garden picking at dandelion leaves, gathering up fallen apples and doing a bit of dusting round. We’ll definitely be popping back to Glendalough, maybe this weekend even. Let’s see if the weather holds out!
