Noise proves nothing, Often a hen who has laid an egg cackles as if she had laid an asteroid.

A week and a half to christmas, and work is pretty much over. Oh I still have to be here for another week, but there isn’t really all that much to be done. I’m thinking of really making work for myself and deshelving all the books so I can clean and sort the shelves. See, the shelves are very deep, deeper than the books and so there is quite a bit of dust hiding behind the books. And because exams have just finished I have no doubt that there are books scattered all over the shop.

But at the same time, it seems an awful lot of work?

Maybe I’ll just sort the journals instead? Or waste hours on the internet. Yeah, that last ones sounds good.

Was talking to de faadder[1] yesterday and it turns out the probably will not be coming up for a days’ shopping as de mudder[2] was already up for a day and traveled by train. This is terrible news! Now I’ll have to haul the presents from the apt to the luas, from the luas up the stairs and onto train. And, if we get stuck with the “fancy-arsed new trains” then it is going to be hassle trying to find somewhere I can dump aforementioned pressies.

sigh

    Although, maybe I will be some help since I have sent a lot of gifties home already. Though I'm sure that under somebody or others Law about filling all available space, I'll fill my empty hands with extra pairs of shoes and so forth.
    PS the brudder-in-law totalled his car last night and coulda been killed but wasnae. Scary. Ended up upside-down on the middle of a roundabout. Not a scratch on him. Apart from emotional scratches.

    And we'll have to get there extra early cos some of the seats on those trains are ok for stacking bagaiste and are more comfy so we could try to nab one o them.

    If you are the type of person who would actually take the books off the shelf and dust rather than just sit around my wife would probably fly you over here to work in her library!!! :)

    Well I wouldn't normally Carl, but a whole week of nothing at all to do! Thats just too long.

  6. I didn't realise you were from Sligo. Luckily it's not on my list of counties that I want to see sold in the event of a United Ireland. Whoops, I've said too much…

  7. Fence says:

    Sure and you couldn't be selling Sligo anyways, isn't she the Land of Heart's Desire an' all that?
