It's been an oddly emotional morning so I'm going to make this short, sweet and full of a great song to pick me up today! I wasn't around Blogland much over the weekend and I'm not going to really be around today but I have a great reason not to be! My cousin, her wonderful husband, and her mother-in-law will be visiting us today!! This is hugely exciting because since living abroad, we have seen a couple of friends over here but never yet family. There is something just so overly exciting about having a family member see the world I live in now and the life I'm in now; it's just a fantastic feeling to share my experience in the place I live! They will be coming this afternoon and will be staying the night in Cork before leaving for Dublin in the morning so I'm going to be having a blast with them and won't be able to visit all of you today.
Branden has a two day 'conference' at his University so he's going to be busy these next two days but luckily has hour and a half lunches and is home in the evening. As he was looking through the lineup of his next couple of days, we had this little nugget of conversation come up:
Branden: Oh good! They will have a Thesaurus Linguae Hibernicae class at my Palaeography conference tomorrow!
Me (looking obviously clueless): If you don't have anything simple to say, then don't say anything at all!
