Bright skies after the storm

Not doing so many wellies these days but here’s one to match the weather of the weekend.

Kilkenny getaway

About 10 years ago, I decided some interesting company and chat about books might be a good plan. So 10 or so of us began to meet to read and talk about books and of course have some good food and wine. Ten years on, our lives have moved on too but I am so blessed to have this very diverse group of intelegent, interesting, creative and fun women in my life.

We spent this weekend in Kilkenny to celebrate our “first” 10 years.

Really, what’s not to love about Kilkenny town, even in the rain. Fabulous food, art galleries, great little shops.

There’s the cathedral and the castle, where we met a really interesting guy who regaled us with tales about the Butler’s portrait and painting collection, which was both important and substantial in it’s day.

and it wouldn’t have been the same without a bit of music and of course a lock-in!

I’m back at the easel today, a little the worse for wear but strangely energized at the same time. Wonderful!

    • Hi Barbara, It’s our first weekend away but we have taken figaries before… namely to the theatre, or to the cinema to see movies of the books we’ve read. Oh and lots of dinners together! :-)
