Eily’s Report – 15th June

Dia is Mhuire díobh go léir a chairde, and welcome to my weekly report.

We’re still reeling from the heat of the hottest day.  The experts said that Sunday would be a roaster and it was. Some people handled it well by planning it well, not an easy thing to do when we’ve been starved of fine weather for most of the year. The mention of a hot sunny day sends us searching for the togs and towels and all the others gear which would make a day on the beach a dream day come true. But alas it wasn’t to be for many who did just that and headed off only to find that along the way there were a few  traffic delays, which soon turned the car into an oven like experience, multiply that by a few over excited little children and your own back yard and a paddling pool soon became a very desirable option. I know of some who did a  U-turn and salvaged some very happy hours sipping a cool drink while the little ones wallowed in the plastic pool or busy garden stream. Outdoor food providers did very well and gave us the feeling that we were in some foreign clime. Looking at the new changes that people have made because of Covid19 is  non-stop and only goes to show how much we have learned and how adaptable we are to change. Any bit of ground out the back be it your handy dump or holding place for things that maybe you’d use someday have been given a new lease of life. All cleaned out surrounding walls  repaired painted, decorated and well distanced dining furniture complete with huge umbrellas put in instead. Other places have made full use of spaces out the front where we can have our refreshments in a public place and greet the passers-by giving us the opportunity to meet acquaintances who who have been hidden away by the Corona Virus and only starting to emerge from it’s clutches. If we were all to tell our own story of how we beat the bug it would make very interesting reading indeed. How gratifying it is to see two Irish people being highly awarded in England for their great work in developing the Vaccine. Be careful when handling things with sanitised hands. A couple I know sat outside their local watering hole all set to enjoy their first pint when alas her slippery hand failed to hold  the glass and it slid to the ground splashing everybody around.
