Happy New Year to all! Can't believe its almost a year since I posted a journal, but I have been clicking in and out all the time keeping a check on everyone! Fran called to me in October and he filled me in on any thing of interest that I had missed. I'm really looking forward to the get together to catch up with everyone. 

Hazel mentioned in her journal that I was donating a prize for the raffle. I spoke to her a few weeks ago about my offer and she said why not, so I'd be delighted to welcome whoever wins it to our seaside holiday house in West Clare for either a 2 night weekend break or a three night mid week break (subject to availability) We are well situated for anyone who would like to visit the Burren in north Clare or the Loop Head Peninsula in the West and there are some nice gardens around as well!

For anyone interested, I'm currently running a competition on Facebook for a similiar prize, so a second chance to win! The winner will be drawn next Monday night, 6 January. This is the link: www.facebook.com/sandhillshouse  - I'd be delighted if ye shared it! Thanks and hope to see ye all on the 12 January.

Thanks Rachel - see you on Sunday week.

Lovely spot, Doonbeg, especially Doughmore beach. Spent A Holliday there, about 40 years ago.

What a great prize for you to give to the raffle. The Burren is one of my favourite placs to visit. I love the walk from Fanore beach that brings you up by the school house and back down by Caher Bridge.

Thanks Nuala for such a generous prize!

Sorry , Nuala, that I missed you on Sunday. The weather was not as bad as forecast. I left it until 10.30 a.m. before deciding not to travel. I saw on TV of the damage done in West Clare. I am sure a lot of work and money will be required to put it right. That was a super prize you gave. Well done.
