Beautiful winter days

Today was a glorious day, or at least a glorious morning. While the newspaper headlines were shouting about ice and peril and danger, for this lucky city slicker, it was a morning bright with sunshine and the odd patch of slippy ice just added a little excitement to my walk to college. The library is open again, and I am working hard. Life is good, and I am happy. Happy to have had a fantastic Xmas, happy that it's over and that I can enjoy some privacy with my man again!

I was also surprised last night when Bepe opened the door and I realised that it was good to see him. I hadn't missed him, exactly, but he's an easier roomie than my Mom, who turned everything upside down and cleaned it while she was here, with the result that most of the kitchen implements have not been traceable ever since. I felt as thought I hadn't seen Bepe for ages when it was really, what..? 2 weeks or something? 2 and a half? He was suitably impressed by how shiny and tidy the apartment was and by the gifts Mom had left him. We decided to go out for a drink and considering the weather had one of those wonderful hot-whiskey-and-brandies each. Fabulous. Fabia, the girlfriend I've loved to hate all this while, is not coming back and as his job is still here, he thinks that they are going to "take a break". He's better off without that little...little minx. Pah! I'll help him find a better girl.

Here's a funny thing tho'. We were in this pub, Conways, which is on Parnell Street just near one of Dublin's maternity hospitals. It's a cool, old place with lots of mirrors and wood and "characters" having their drinks. This man came in, all emotional because his wife had just had twins. He didn't even want a drink -- he just wanted to tell someone all about it. Apparently, they are the most beautiful babies ever born in Ireland. I even saw a picture of them on his mobile phone. They looked like regular babies to me, but he was so excited, it was a good excuse to buy him a drink and have another round!

Well, I was sorry not to see my Boyfriend today -- but I am seeing him tomorrow and he's organised a surprise and I'm sure it's gonna be fantastic!! ;-)
