From inner East to outer East

It’s been a long time since I visited this blog. A lot has happened since my last post in February 2011, although its mainly been the addition of a baby to the family and house move. Plus I think my attention span has suffered due to facebook and twitter to such an extent that writing a blog entry seems like so much….effort.

So it is from sunny Ballybeen that I write, having just put nine month old Linus to bed. We’ve moved from an area (lower Woodstock) where too many people asked “will the car be alright?” when they visited, to another neighbourhood where people coming in still make assumptions about the area.

I think I have some plans for this blog. Maybe to try out characters I’ve been developing for some short stories, sketch ideas for talks in church..not sure. In the meantime, here is a picture of my dog after his bath this evening.
