IT STARTED WITH A CELEBRATION & FINISHED WITH A FESTIVAL.

Well without noticing my 'weekly' blog has turned into a monthly blog in May as the weeks have just flown by. All our families were here at the start of May for Tom's big '3' '0' and Francesca's christening - it was a fantastic day.  After a few days in Belfast it was back to Belmullet and back to it. The Children of Lír Festival was fast approaching and it was all hands to the pump to pull it all together.

The fabulous weather has made the festival all the better but the effort and sense of community over the weekend was phenomenal. Right from the school concert that opened the festival to the talk at Ballycroy people turned up and got involved. You'd maybe say I'm getting back to my old self, back in the shop and getting involved in all the other stuff but in reality that's never gong to happen. There is a new normal and it's hectic but brilliant.

I wonder what the future holds for our baby girl and I think it's so funny that my dad and my daughter are from Belmullet but I'm a blow in. I spent my childhood feeling like and Irish girl in England and then suddenly I became the English girl in Ireland. I know I'll always be a blow in, but that's ok. I've travelled enough to make home wherever I lay my hat. I'm just pleased that my hat landed in Belmullet and I think we could be here to stay!
