Ready for the Ring

Killorglin, Ireland
Wednesday, August 16, 2006

Today we drove all day. We had quite a distance to cover to get down to the south west corner which we had been assured was the "prettiest". The only notable thing that happened all day was that we stopped for lunch in the same pub that Billy Connolly had. The BOSS and I spent the time in the car making a list of what we will and won't miss once we are home.

So, as we have nothing else to report on this day - here is the list.
We will miss:
Belgian chocolate
Greek coffee and yoghurt
sleeping in
learning about different cultures
choosing what to eat from a menu and not having to cook it
not having a routine
spending 24hrs a day with my daughter (the BOSS does not necessarily agree with this one)
the excitement of waking up in the morning wondering what surprises the day will bring

We will not miss -
the car
feather pillows
UHT milk
hunting for internet, B&B's and decent fresh food
living in the same 3 t-shirts
the lack of decent gossip from home
lousy showers
bunk rooms in Youth hostels
foreign laundromats
not having a bathrobe and being able to wear it round the house for two hours after my shower
