We have to keep him in at night time, as he barks a lot at anything that moves outside and we don't want a fall out with the neighbours. When we went on holiday he went up to my homeplace for 3 weeks and he is not the same dog since we came back. Guess he got used to having canine company and while we were on our jollies he was getting his..wouldn't mind so much except me Ma's dog is a dog too!!

Of course we did venture away on day trips and there is loads to go and see. As we had a few good days we took in Fota Wildlife Park, Youghal (beautiful beach), had a trip on the Waterford Suir Railway which Babs loved, he had his head stuck to the window for the vibration.. and our last day finished up with the highly recommended Copper Coast Mini Pet Farm-loads of diggers tractors to ride on and a huge sandpit as well as some lovely animals. Maybe my kids are still easily pleased but it really was an enjoyable, stress-free holiday and the girls didn't want to go back home.
Since coming home I have noticed a change in Babs..he seems more content. Maybe he is just glad to be home and back to routine cos he was overly happy today and nothing was putting him in a bad mood. All day he was trying to be funny and succeeding. If he did something naughty I would say "Stop that or I am going to get mad" and he would say "I don't want Mammy mad I want Mammy smiling, smiling Mammy makes me happy", what do you say to that? But it is good to be home.

Not gonna bore you with all that went wrong on our Blackpool hols. Got parking ticket in one spot £50 (left unpaid) and same evening hubby driving at 40 through 30mph zone and got flashed by the big yellow cameras..haven't heard anything from that..yet. The kids loved the holiday so that is what matters..girls old enough now to have figured out slot machines...aagh I hate them, only because they are addictive. Couple of snaps to capture the holiday. Off tomorrow on another one, down the country this time to Waterford. Am looking forward to this one..so will catch up in a week or so....Laters

This time tomorrow we should be on route to Holyhead heading for Blackpool. The kids are really looking forward to it. It's one of those Haven holiday caravan parks. We went to Wales last year so wanted to do the same thing this year but somewhere different. The gang that went was us lot along with my brother, his wife and child, hubby's brother and his wife and 2 kids and a mutual friend and his wife and 2 kids - and we all got on.
The beauty of this type of holiday is that there are kids clubs in the day time and evening entertainment for the whole family. You can have a drink and walk back to your mobile home. So the adult company made it all the more enjoyable. Rory & Bradley were a great hit with the kids and our eldest won 40 cuddly toys in the raffle and that made her whole holiday.
We would cook regular meals in the day time and eat from the on-site Burger King for tea..it is only for a week and they do make a lovely burger. So off to pack now and will report next week on how good it was.
