I returned from Barcelona on Sunday - I had a fantastic time, what a beautiful and magical city! - but since then I haven't felt like blogging. Perhaps I was avoiding following the usual routine for a few more days? Maybe I didn't want to get back to (virtual) reality?

But the weekend has nearly arrived, which is not unlike a mini-holiday, and I have lots planned. Tonight is Culture Night, where over 100 museums, galleries and arts organisations open their doors until 11 pm this evening. Eager to 'get cultured up', a group of us are going to wander around the Christchurch and Temple Bar area. We'll be visiting a pub later obviously as culture and arts go hand-in-hand with alcohol. Trust me, I'm a writer. Hic.

And tomorrow is my good friend Sinead's 30th birthday. We don't see each other that often so I'm really looking forward to catching up and letting my hair down.

I still don't have a job - the longer-term temp contracts won't be available until next month apparently - but I have been editing the eighth story like a demon.

Hi Yvonne
Good to see you blogging - even if you weren't keen to return to the usual routine.
Sounds like you have a great weekend planned. Have lots of fun.
Good on ya, editing the eighth story. x

I hope it's not too disappointing to come back. Culture Night sounds fantastic. Have a great time and I look forward to hearing about Barcelona in due course.

Culture Night sounds a brilliant idea - nice to have you blogging again.

Sounds as if you're making the most of not working. The Universe can be quite funky in holding back the things we think we need immediately.

Welcome back!

Hope you had a great time and enjoy your night of culture. Dublin is so cool:-)

Angie said...

Glad to have you back, and I'm eager to hear more about Barcelona.

Well done on jumping right back in to the editing, as it can be difficult to adjust to the regular routine after a fab holiday.

Enjoy Culture Night. I am just slightly jealous. :)
