Turf

Having fun with mobile phones and laptops means that I could only post the latest picture to facebook The story is that my friend Gene asked for some help, and it turns out that four of us spent the day turning turf up on the mountain! The turf is cut and left to try, but is then turned to dry the other side. It's tough work ( and I escaped lightly as I only did one day of it! ) You have to do these things when you're in Ireland. We were up on the hills in Lougher and the views were spectacular - just near where Andy and I were snowboarding in the winter.
Apart from that it's been a busy few weeks: lots of lovely guests staying, and also busy helping out at Manna's Farm. It was great to see Lucy who was down from Kildare staying with Thomas and Claire for a few days, and to catch up on her GROW project - check out her blog! Lucy and Mairtin are doing great work with lots of the local schools....
The kittens are all racing around the place now, and seem to think it's fun to climb up your jeans and shirt then sit on your shoulder. All OK until you have shorts on....
