Well today is Palm Sunday and next week it will be Easter ,it seems as though Christmas was just the other day ,but of course it will feel like that, because Easter is as early this year as it possibly can be ,and I understand from Sybil it wont ever be as early as this in our life time .Easter day is always the first Sunday after the full moon which happens on the or next after the 21st March ,and if the full moon falls on a Sunday ,Easter day is the week after.
Tomorrow is St Patrick’s Day, and of course for Maurice being an Irish man the day is special, we have nothing planned but will have to see how things pan out, Four years ago we spent the day watching the wonderful parades in Killarney, and of course celebrating .We had the most amazing time the people, the scenery, and the music is something I will never forget.
Now this Tattoo!!Did you read Zoë’s entry? Weeeellll …When I worked at the nursing home one of the girls who worked there was desperate to have a tattoo, and during the conversation ,someone had dared me to have one done too ,and because I had just met Maurice it was at his suggestion I chose what I did ,and the dare was one I couldn’t resist hee heee ,I even asked the tattooist if he gave reductions to pensioners he roared with laughter said he’d never been asked before ,and guess what for my cheek he did ,No good having cheek if you don’t use it ,lol.
So there you are its a little Shamrock on my leg! And no one guessed it, ha ha.
Now before I go, I would like to ask you to visit Helens journal, she was quite badly burnt as a little girl, and to help others she feels she would like to share her journey, a very brave and lovely young lady ,I know you will give her a proper J Land welcome.
Enjoy what’s left of the day ,lots of love and
