Tuesday 4 November 2014 – A day by the sea

Yesterday, we finally made the trip down to Cork, our home for the last two years. Oisin asked us if he could go, perhaps to feel normal again. Strange being back. Also very nice for us to re-unite with our house and to see the boys instantly raid the toys they have missed. We had forgotten what it was like to have space and just hang out as a family of four. We relaxed and had some fun doing messy play in the house yesterday evening, and had some visits from neighbours who have been very kindly looking after things whilst we have been away.

Today we spent the day by the sea at our very favourite places, Myrtleville  and Crosshaven. The sun glistened and the boys kicked off the shoes and socks and seemed to run so freely and happily in the sand and water. We met up with Suzanne for brunch in Crosshaven and then called up to Maeve’s house who was there with the girls. Oisin and Cilly loved seeing Albert again, the tortoise with attitude, and I think Maeve and I had the most fun of everyone with the “plushy” making!  Boys went to bed very early after their day, but not before enjoying the treats Orla left for them. We had our final  visitors, Jo and Philip, stop by and now the hatches are firmly battened down on another emotional, beautiful, tiring day. Words can’t always accurately describe the personal impact of our experiences. We simply continue on, like riding the ocean waves, and its all we can do for now. Good night all. xxx
