Today was one of those rare weekend days.
The kids all had plans which didn't involve us being taxi drivers.
Which meant meself and Herself had the day to ourselves.
And as I didn't have a gig tonight (another rarity on a Saturday), we decided to take off in the car.
No destination, no return time, no clock!
Just got in the car and drove.
Two mins later.. traffic jam!
Turn car around and head in the other direction.
We ended up driving all the way round Lough Derg.
Taking in four counties as we did with a few lovely stops on our journey.
The weather was just fantastic.
We had a wonderful walk in a forest, I'm sure we must have been the only people around for miles!
And a sumptuous lunch was enjoyed right under the boat in the picture above.
We had the place almost to ourselves.
As we watched the Munster rugby team beat the hell out of Treviso on Sky sports.
(It was a home match, hence the traffic jam!)
A Day for chatting, and listening, a day for ourselves.
And it was great.
