Our vacation in Killarney day two

We had a great day yesterday.  We went to kenedys pet farm. OH MY GOD it was cool. So many animals. I got to pet goats, sheep pigs, puppies, kittens, and deer.  The kids had a ball too.  The animals kept trying to steal our foo which was really funny.  We took lots of pics and I even got a video of the pig snoring her head off.  The pigs names were babe and beauty.  Babe was only 9 weeks old.  Theree were also puppies which were only six weeks old.  they were gorgeous.  I had fun snuggling one of them.  I also got to hold a kitty.  Can you believe I’ve never held a kitten?  Or felt a pig?  We spent the entire day at the pet farm.  Then we came home and my sister took the kids swimming.  Me and mom went to the bar and sat chatting and mom had a drink but I didnt.  Then when my sister came back we ordered dinner.  I was good and got mostly healthy food but I did get potato skins loaded with bacon and cheese.  I must say they were delicious.  My sister got buffalo wings which were very hot.  After dinner I was tired so decided to go back to my room for the rest of the evening.  My sister took the kids to play crazy golf and then they went to watch a movie in the kids play area.  It was a great day.  Today we’re meant to be going to a wildlife sanctuary but its raining so I am not sure we’ll get there.  If the rain holds off we will but if it doesnt our plans will have to change.  We’re about to go eat breakfast now.  We have to be out of the hotel rooms by midday.  

Part way through our vacation now having a ball

So I went out of town yesterday. To a nearby town about 90 mins from where I live. My mom, sister and the two kids are with me. My sister also brought another child, her kids cousin on their dads side. We’re having a blast. We stopped off on the way for some lunch. I was really good at lunch time, I just had a turkey and stuffing sandwich, and a cup of hot tea. I really wanted to get what my sister got, which was a hot chicken roll, with chicken, cheese, lettuce, and garlic mayo on it. But now I’m glad I didnt because the dinner last night was huge and I know I’ve probably put on a little weight from it. When we got to the hotel we checked in and looked around. The hotel is beautiful and really family friendly. They have everything here. We decided to go swimming in the hotel pool. I can swim but I didnt really swim instead I went in the hot tub for half an hour. That was bliss. After swimming we went to the bar so my mom and my sis could have a drink before dinner. I wasnt drinking, instead I had sparkling water with lemon in it. My mom and sister and the kids were able to get their meal without paying because it was part of the deal they got. I had to pay for mine but for 22.50 I got a 3 course meal of a starter main and dessert. The meal was scrumptious. For starters I had cream of vegetable soup, then for my main I had turkey and ham with mashed potatos, egetables, and stuffing. And then I treated myself to a dessert of a chocolate brownie with vanilla ice cream. After dinner the kids went to the indoor play area that is in the hotel, and mom and me stayed in the bar chatting and drinking our drinks. Then after that my sister took the kids to the play area thats outside, there are swings slides and climbing equipment. We stayed in the bar for a while longer and then I decided to go upstairs and chill out since I wasnt drinking. I skyped with my friend sarah for a while but skype kept disconnecting and we were having trouble hearing one another which was annoying. It was after 1 AM before I finally slept. And when I did I didnt sleep too good, tossed and turned all night and was up twice to pee lol. Woke at 7 when mom texted me to ask if I was up. Then mom came in and helped me get ready to shower and made me a cup of tea. She’s so sweet. I’m showered now and I feel much better, more awake. Today saturday we are going to a pet farm. Cant wait for that and to see all the animals because I heard you can pet them ande touch them which will be good. We’ll probably spend the entire day there and eat lunch there too. Its so nice to get a break away. I’m loving it.

Almost time for vacation yay!

Well, its almost time for my holiday. I leave tomorrow morning. For 4 days.

Considering it almost got canceled…I’m glad to be going. It almost got canceled because our dad hurt his leg. He fractured his heel. How, you may ask? Well he climbed on the garden shed to retrieve our niece’s flip flop and barbie doll. Once he retrieved them, he went to jump off the shed. He couldnt see the edge because there was bushes growing over it. So he just jumped, silly man!

That was on Thursday evening. After a night of no sleep and where he was in agony with the pain, he went to the hospital on Friday morning. They x rayed it and put a cast on and now he has a cast all the way up to his knee. He has to go back in a month to have the leg x rayed again.

Well our mom was going to cancel our trip, because she thought he wouldnt be able to manage by himself for the few days. But they talked it over and he said he would so we’re going and boy am I glad.

I really need a little down time. Considering that Eileen is away since today, I need a bit of distraction. I miss her a lot already. She has said that in week two we can do a phone check in so thats awesome. I’ll be happy to catch up with her then.

Summer holiday

Well its all sorted. I am going on holidays from July sixth until July 9th. I’m going with my mom and sister, and aunt. And of course there will be my sisters two kids too. We’re all going to stay in a hotel in west Cork. Its about 10 mins drive from the beach. So that means if the weathers good we’ll probably go to the beach one day. I think we’re also going to go to a model railway village one day. The hotel is lovely. We’re staying 3 nights, and we also got breakfast each day and one evening meal. The other two days we’re going to eat out. I’m sooo looking forward to a vacation. I just hope the weather will be good, because I packed all summer clothes. Knowing my luck it will rain…so keep your fingers crossed for me for good weather! Today mom and I went to my house and got out all of my summer clothes, and I tried stuff on to see what fit. Then she ironed everything, because she’s precise like that ha. And she’s packed them all now too. After we went to my house we decided to go to costa coffee for a cappachino. That was nice. Its been a good start to the weekend.
