Life recently, April 2014 edition

I have a huge amount of respect for bloggers that hold down a full time job yet still manage to come home and blog. It's something that I've really struggled with recently for a variety of reasons but mainly that as I sit in front of a computer all day at work, I have no desire to do that once I'm home. However after not blogging for almost 3 weeks, I've missed it and thought I'd ease myself back in with a little life update (check out last year's April edition). A lot has changed this past month, mostly positive. First up, as I'd like to think my first photo depicts - Spring has sprung! What better way to inject some seasonal decor than a colourful bunch of tulips?

Ireland - Dun na Ri Forest & Cabra Castle

A couple of weeks ago, we decided to take an impromptu trip to visit Dan's brother and his family in Mullagh, Ireland. I'd only been once before back in 2010 so was long overdue a return trip. We arrived on Saturday evening and spent the night catching up with some drinks by the fire. That's what I love most about going to visit, they live in a gorgeous house tucked away in a little village right in the middle of the Irish countryside.

The next day we were pleasantly surprised to wake up to the sun shining despite Ireland's rainy rep. Determined to make the most of it, Dan's nephew and niece took us exploring around Dun na Ri Forest.
