The weather is glorious
April 28th, 2006 by teragram

I had always assumed that a large part of that “May weekend feeling” — you know, the one where the sun is shining, the trees are blossoming, and all is well with the world? — I had always assumed it was largely relief. Having been deprived of sunlight for four or five months the mind is searching for something to be happy about. Well it isn’t, because I wasn’t. Deprived, that is.

Ireland is beautiful, and I am glad to be back. I’ve done some work today, finished the Irish Times Crosaire crossword for the first time in my life (with a little help from a friend), and the sun is shining it’s little boots off. I am pleased. Here are some more things I’m pleased about:

  • The house C and I are renting is ours alone for the next year, and it’s lovely.
  • Said house is approximately 4 minutes walk from the nearest train station, which is about 30 seconds walk from C’s workplace.
  • My laptop no longer has a little yellow line running down the left of the screen, thanks to the very friendly Dell man.
  • I’m leaving early to go to the bank which stays open until 5!
  • The e-voting system’s death rattle is becoming positively audible (do you think they’d sell me one?)
  • There’s a direct train from work to home in the evenings.
  • The trees are blossoming

Well, I’d better go or I’ll miss the bank, despite its revolutionary opening hours
