I have some great news for you all.
I am giving you all a holiday.
In less than a week’s time this site will be dormant. No longer will you have to rush to read my latest daily drivel. No longer will you have to rack your brains trying [and failing] to come up with witty comments.
So what’s the story, you ask?
I’m getting outa here.
I’m getting a little weary sitting here starting at the mountains with the sea in the distance, so I am going somewhere where I can stare at the sea with the mountains in the distance. It’s a subtle difference, but it is a difference nonetheless.
I shall be heading South. If you take a look at a map of Ireland, I shall be down there in the furthest recesses of the bottom left corner. To say it is remote is putting it mildly. I shall have no Interweb there, and I doubt if they have even heard of it in the area. I’ll count myself lucky if there is electricity.
I’m going there for a few reasons.
My prime objective is to do nothing. I’m quite good at that but I intend to perfect my technique. In the event I fail, I may do some photography. Or I might do a little writing. Or I may just sit on the rocks at the bottom of the garden and watch the Atlantic waves wash over the rock-pools. Though knowing my luck it will be more than likely Atlantic breakers washing over the garden and into the house.
I like it down there. I have spent more holidays down there than most people have had hot saunas. I know the area almost like the back of my hand [assuming I have been so bored as to spend my time studying the back of my hand?]. In fact I have harboured dreams of living there. It’s quieter than here, and the climate is a little milder. It’s about as far as anyone can get from officialdom and rumour has it that the water isn’t just diluted fluoride. So I may spend some idle time looking at the property market down there. Last time I was there I did the same and liked what I saw.
I would miss Spanner, Pullit and the gang but they have their own Spanners, Pullits and gangs down there who by all accounts are as eccentric as the mob here so I think I might fit in well.
So how long will this holiday last?
Provisionally it’s for a couple of weeks but that can be extended.
Who knows? I may never come back.
