Some sad news and some holiday snaps

Hello world!

It has been a while.

It has been a little hard to work out where to start this post and in truth I binned the last two MMMay posts because I didn't have the heart to complete them and now its a bit past the event...

We were on holiday in Ireland the other week - from the 23rd May for a rock/blues festival in tribute to Rory Gallagher, the late blues guitarist. My grandmother sadly and somewhat unexpectedly died while we were away :-(. Unbeknown to me she had taken a turn for the worst the day before we went and my parents didn't want to ruin our holiday by letting us know. She finally passed on the morning that we returned. Her funeral was Monday and we gave her the warm send off that she deserved. To add to our shitty day someone broke into our car when we returned from a few drinks to commiserate. There wasn't even anything in the car worth stealing and he dropped the £2 cash we had there for our shopping trolleys. pfffffttttttt.

But for us the world keeps on turning and that means returning to the new norm. we did indeed have a great holiday and the festival was amazing. I stuck to my pledge and managed to wear at least one me made every day - however only managed to photo a few days. the set up of the festival was something which really appealed - small pub gigs throughout the town and a number of larger open air gigs in a giant marquee and a couple of pop up stages in the town. If you're interested the festival page can be found here.

so heres a few holiday snaps and the last few days of me made may.





I hope to have normal service resumed later this month. I have a few items made up that I'm excited to share.

Jenn

  1. Ach Jenny, das tut mir leid, dass Deine Oma gestorben ist.
    Es war tapfer von Deinen Eltern, dass sie Euch den Urlaub in Irland noch gegönnt haben.
    Ich wünsche Dir alles Gute.
    Liebe Grüße
