Hurricane Ophelia has arrived

Today was a strange day. I had to admit that was my first Red Weather Alert on national level.

So far, we got away with the worst of it I think. It is dark outside, the wind is howling and the rain is rattling on the roof but I believe here in Galway we got lucky.

Everything was closed in the village today except the two main food stores Keogh’s and Londis and we thank those brave people for staying open and saving us all from household emergencies like no more milk, cat food or cereal and eggs.. And of course, let’s not forget the necessary for the moral bottles of wine, beer and spirits!! 

And now that the day is over we can only hope that tomorrow will be a better day.

Keyboard troubles

A horrible thing happened to me the other day – I spilledΒ coffee on my keyboard. It certainly put a halt to my work for a while. I had a back up, an old forgotten keyboard which turned up that it did not work because it was too damp. So I had to dry it for a day. Luckily it worked briefly yesterday morning so I could download a virtual keyboard which was a great help while the new old keyboard was drying up. I guess I have never used the word keyboard so many times in a post before and I promise I never will. But believe me, Β it is very difficult to work on a computer only with a mouse. Try typing in your log in password for example…
