What a lovely day it was! I first started off with the wrong foot by knitting for 30 minutes in front of the wrong gazebo. Only when I took a stroll around the park I found the actual gathering. We were first at the band stand, but then the band came and we moved to the lawn to enjoy the music (which was very good!) At one point some drops of rain came down, but they soon gave up as we refused to budge.
For once I had an active weekend, meaning I actually got out of the house, and did something else than knitting, blogging or reading at home. I met my cousin and her husband on Saturday, Nic wanted to come too but was busy. So the three of us went for few pints in the city centre.First we sat in a church that has been trasformed to a pub. No, that was a weird experience. I liked the pub, but the whole idea of drinking in a holy place did kind of freak me out.
Yesterday we finally met my cousin, who moved to Dublin a few months back, but unfortunately I hadn't been able to meet her before (for some reason her number had disappeared from my phone, and the email address didn't work, either!) Well, now we finally got togther. We first took the bus to the city, and see what someone had made: Yes, it is a origami swan made out of a Dublin Bus ticket. It was so lovely, I felt really touched - to make something so beautiful out of such an ordinary and very unaesthetic piece of paper.
