Eily’s Report – 27th February

Dia is mhuire díobh go léir a cáirde and welcome to my Report.

Aaah Monday and the sun shining, what a brilliant start to the week. We don’t see the sun very often these days and the thing to do when we do, is to get out into it. Leave everything else till later and get out into the wonderful out-of –doors. Though it’s not fit for basking in it, there are still plenty of ways to make a meal of it. A stroll around the garden is always a good thing and following at the wind and rain there are lots of things to be picked up, even found in places beyond your imagination after the tornado-strong gales. How wonderful it is to see the tiny buds breaking through on the shrubs, while the daffodils wave in the breeze.   Some camelias flower very early, mine are just about getting on with it now and oh how welcome they are just to stand and admire them in the warm sun. A gift from God. Make  the most of every fine hour.

Patricia also remembers the late Bridget King who certainly enriched all our lives.  Patricia writes as follows:  “In loving memory of a dear Friend – Bridget King – I knew Bridget for a long time.  She had a very interesting life.  She travelled a lot.   She took great interest in people and in her very many Friends.   She appreciated everything that was done for her.  We had a great chat before Christmas and she thoroughly enjoyed talking especially to those from the Millstreet area.   She will be sadly missed by her Family and many Friends.  May Bridget rest in peace.  Patricia Guerin.”
