Saint Patrick’s Day

18 Mar

Poor Saint Patrick passed without much recognition in this house. There were great intentions and a few nods in his direction. But. We. Really. Must. Try. Harder.

Most of the parades and things were on last weekend. And we were too pooped from all of the Thomas shennanigans. There were some things on yesterday evening but a drive by assessment led to the conclusion that it was really too mad and crowded for a small boy. All those drunk people. Smoking. Jumping around like lunatics. Too full of the joys. So we gave it a miss. The shamrocks are still alive and well in this house. Not one of them got drowned.

As for the nods in Saint Patrick’s direction? Well we made some cards and the turtle had the nice shirt Mammy stenciled for him. A start was made on some “stained glass” shamrocks but they were never finished. Next year? Almost certainly.

Right now we have to get ready for the Easter Egg hunt on Saturday. Apparently we need a basket. And who knows what else. I’ve never been to an Easter Egg Hunt before. There will be less half-heartedness this time. Probably.

Oh, and we have to post those Saint Patrick’s Day cards before it rolls around again.

      It is a bit mad. I’m not sure that Irish people can muster up as much enthusiasm for poor Saint Patrick as some of the people I’ve seen here. That’s why we shall have to try harder. Go American style. Start putting up shamrocks and green tinsel the day after Valentine’s Day, just to get our money’s worth. Hmmmmm. Maybe not.

    Those cards look great, well I wish you good luck with your first Easter Hunt Event. I’m pretty sure your first Easter event will be a bit rough around the edges, but the next Easter events will be a breeze.
