Happy St Patrick's day

Good morning to you all...this was me this morning when I opened the curtains to a beautiful sunny day in ummmmm...... Exeter!!!!
As some of you know I celebrate St Patrick's day every year & I can't remember the last time I worked on that day or the day after!!! We've been to loads of gigs around the country but over the years this seems to have stopped...most people celebrate on the weekend before or after as this is when the pubs will cash in!!! Last year was my first at home & we went to a local pub in Crediton where food was put on & music played... however this year will just be me & my OH as everyone forgot!!! Never mind we'll have a good time on our own.
We celebrate for lots of reasons which I won't bore you with but the main one is we love the music..... maybe some River dancing will happen later!!!

So there will be some of this.........

A few of these..........

I have the hip flask ready.... just buy the coffee but don't tell the publicans!!!!

We will be listening to this.........

The Dubliners

And this.............

The Pogues

And a little bit of this......

The men they couldn't hang
I couldn't even tell you how many times I've seen this band in the last 20 years .

Just hope I don't end up like this........

Hope you all have a great day what ever you do....

PS. I hope to be back tomorrow with a nice sensible crochet post!!!!
