Harry and Paddy weekend

This weekend has been very lovely. Friday was St. Patrick’s day and it’s also the anniversary for me and my man. We celebrated by eating at a resturant called ” The adventures of Harry Pepper, the telephone man, on his way to Mexico” Harry Pepper for short. The resturant has been around since 1986, just like me. And they serve great mexican/southern american food. They have a vast selection of tequila and lovely drinks, but we decided to stick to beer as we had planned to drink Guinness later on. I ordered the mixed fajitas and it was very tasty.

After the nice meal We headed to the nearest Irish pub, the Irishman to enjoy some beer and the St.Patrick’s day spirit. The place was packed and the live music was good so we got the spirit as we entered the door.

Saturday it was time to go to our summer house and start getting it ready for use, after the winter. It waited till we had all the pillows, carpets and such from the first floor out in the sunshine to air before it decided to start snowing a little. 

Today we’re celebrating my brother’s birthday with relatives at my mother’s house. Good food and good company is a great day to end the week!

What have you been up to this weekend?

St. Patrick’s Day

I’ve never before celebrated St. Patrick’s Day, but this year I was invited by some irish colleagues to go out to have a Guinness¬†at the local Irish pub called the Irishman. There was a lot of people, live irish music, beer, stew (I did not try this as I had already had dinner) and a very good mood. People where wearing green, Guinness hats and a lot of Shamrocks. They even made Shamrocks in our beers ūüôā As we were all going to work today we did not celebrate too much, but it was very much fun to go there and feel the atmosphere and look at all the funny things people got dressed up in. The people I went out with made for excellent company and I was very thankful today that we were responsible enough to get home at a respectable hour. I might have to start celebrating this day from now on as all excuses to go out and have a nice time with good people should be used!

The weather has not been to good lately. There has been a lot of rain, so this weekend has not been spent much outside. But I helped a friend redecorate and afterwards we had a pre-redecorating party. And on sunday we had a family dinner at my aunt’s place with two of my cousins and their family.
