Spring is Here

Picture 107

I am back blogging again after some months of not been really up to it. My other half has not been in great form all over the winter months. He is a Kidney transplant patient since 1993 and the year after that he had a triple heart bypass operation and things had worked wonderful for him. However this winter he had a number of problems which were quite serious but the good news is, his kidney and heart are doing fine now.

The weather is fabulous here in Mayo at the moment, spring has arrived and with the great weather we are feeling well and truly great.
