What a gorgeous day it was today - in between the showers. Gorgeous blue skies with a touch of grey. Shona and I went to Castle connell to meet my parents who have arrived back from spending the summer in Kerry. My Dad was looking brilliant, the time in Kerry has worked wonders for him. After a spot of lunch and catching up with my Mum, Shona and I headed to the river (Shannon) to see the Swans and Ducks where a lovely lady gave Shona some bread to feed the birds. It's simple moments like this that make life great!
