So today work was supposed to start on Pádraig’s new room, but that got delayed for another 2-3 weeks. Instead, I met up with the people who have been helping us to put plans together and who will complete the extension. Two hours passed by in no time. And we still need to clarify loads of details – some bigger than others. The reality is that I can’t wait for these rooms to get ready, at least to start with the conversion.  It’ll be so nice for Pádraig to come back and, who knows, it might just give him a boost.

Tonight, after two long drives (Limerick) and loads of meetings, no boost will manage to keep my eyes open.
