For over a year now, bar a few days I have posted a post.
Some of my posts were even popular, and I have enjoyed a growing following.
However brace yourselves, because all is about to go quiet.
Come Saturday there will be no My thoughts on a page post.
I will be thoughtless so to speak.
Sunday will see none either, nor any day next week.
I am writing here to warn you in advance,
as I am sure at least a couple of you may miss me.
Some may even become concerned,
and wonder what the blazes happened that Irish one.
Well let me reassure you that this break is only temporary,
I will be back.
I am heading away on holidays.
My nearest and dearest and myself.
My idea of a fantastic holiday is to pack up the car,
and family and drive to West Cork.
I enjoy the lack of heat and have no problem with a couple of rainy days.
So answer me then, why in the name of goodness am I taking a plane and leaving the country?
I suppose it’s because that is what my family wish to do,
and who am I to disagree with them.
Anyway here’s a little video I posted last year.
We have decided to risk the “cheap flights” once more,
but I’m holding my breath we don’t end up regretting it!
I wanted to leave you laughing and this video will definitely do that.

AH this made my night! Not only did I hear an abundance of feck, but feckity and feckers and shite as well!!!!! God bless ya’ Tric!!!!! 🙂
Safe travels and have a lovely time!!!
I love it too, glad you did. Thanks a mil colleen. I really feel in need of a break, and even though I’ll hugely miss my blog, and writing, I think a break is good.
I will definitely miss your wonderful posts! I so look forward to them, but I do understand your need for a holiday and I’m sure you will have many stories to tell as only you can! Have a great time!,
That’s a lovely comment Deb thank you. I hope you are doing okay. Take your time and be good to yourself.
I’m trying. Not doing very well tho with it right now (reason for lack of posts), but hopefully I’ll learn how to manage..☺️
Oh Deb its very difficult. What a huge change in your life and the loss of your partner.
My friend takes solace and hope when she sees others who have survived a similar sadness, and seem to be living even if its a different life.
Enjoy your hols Tric!x
Thanks a milion Aedin I think I just might. 🙂
Thank you Ivyon. I am so looking forward to familytime away.
You deserve it 🙂 Just don’t book cheap flights XD
Ha ha. Too late!
Enjoy – I think it’s important to take a break from blogging sometimes, particularly if you are having a break away – you will come back fired with enthusiasm for another year of blogging. I’m not sure how you manage to do it daily though 😉
Thanks Lorna. Agreed about taking a full break.My youngest in particular will love to have my undivided attention.
I never feel it’s a chore to blog, if I want to blog I do, and as it turns out most days I want to, even if its at 11pm at night.
I’m not sure if the interaction is as much of a drug as the writing. Whatever it is I am so happy I found it. Saves a fortune on counselling!
Thanks Lorna for always being so supportive. I really appreciate you and others who comment regularly.
Safe travels and have a wonderful holiday!!! Look forward to the blogs that come about after a family vacation. I am sure that there are going to be some fun activities that result in your wonderful since of humor popping out.
I dread to think! 🙂
enjoy your “free time”
Thank.you. I am looking forward to the rest.
Have a lovely holiday Tric. See you when you get back.
Thanks so much. I’ll be back before you even miss me!
Have a wonderful vacation!! Will be waiting for your return!
Ha ha. I’m sure you will be! I wonder how much I’ll end up missing blogging.
yay, have a ball tric and can’t wait to see you when you get back!
Thanks Beth. I am looking forward to a social media break, as well as a family one. See you in a couple of weeks.
and sure, isn’t a holiday a grand source of material for new blog posts ? 😆
enjoy your break and family-time together, tric !
All of us together for nearly two weeks. Yikes, who knows how this will go!
Enjoy your break, Tric!!
Thanks. I intend to. Vino, relaxing and reading, not necessarily in that order. 🙂
Vino should be first, though. 😉
Have a fantastic time, Tric. You will be missed.
Thank you. Really looking forward to it.
Feck that was funny! My husband loves when I use the word Gobshite. We have such a way with language 🙂
See ya when you get back. Have a lovely holiday!
Thanks Jackie. I too love that word at the right time. It can be so perfectly descriptive, as this video shows. Loved this video from the first time I saw it.
Have a lovely break and hope you get to rest lots. Hope you come back bursting with lots of lovely words. J x
Are you back yet?
Have a fab break, and we will eagerly await the next instalment.
Thanks Amanda. I’m back again!! Hope all going well in your world.
