We’re here, by the skin of our teeth as they say. The last few days have been an incredible journey which has, finally, gotten us to our destination and here I sit in a beautiful suite in the Powerscourt Ritz-Carlton.
We would not be here, I am sure of this, without the wonderful work of a few good women and men, so here are the Thank Yous:
Thank you, Beth Gavin, for coming to the rescue with your awesome skills. You are wonderful. Thank you, Beth Berry, for being ready when I wasn’t and for being YOU. Thank you, Trish Maunder, for everything you do. You are brilliant. Thank you, Andy Maunder, for being the husband I don’t have. You are a great guy. Thank you, Chris O’Brien, for watching Champ this week. It’s a great Christmas present. Thank you, George and Cara Herold, for being Champ’s champions. “Sure” is an awesome answer to the question: Can you help us?
Thank you, friends, for your words of encouragement and support. It means alot.
And NOW…the first pics: Just to make you jealous, this is what I sunk into
Yeah, this place is niiiiiice. After the bath, we went downstairs to McGill’s for our prepaid dinner and I had my first, yes first, real pint in an Irish pub…
Yeah, I’m beat, as you can see, but happy. And now to bed…good night 😉
