Recipe for Doug a la King?

I forgot yesterday to put the few pics I took of the King family up on the blog and let them know that we had a great time while they were here and we welcome them back anytime. (Doug just fell off his chair, I am sure of it...)

"Do these horizontal stripes make me look fat?" asked Doug as he tore into his meal, sucking the butter off the carrots then surreptitiously eructing the veggies into his napkin.
Lauren, Marion and Nikki, otherwise known as Shannon, Miriam and Clodagh.

Daddy and daughter.


After dinner at Kyteler's Inn, we went over for some trad music in Cleere's. If you are ever planning a trip to Kilkenny, make sure you make it to Cleere's on High street for Monday night. Local musicians, politicians, farmers and priests make their way in to sing a little tune, recite a poem and make some of the most beautiful music you have ever heard. You are welcomed to join them at the front of the pub and sing a number yourself. The original karaoke night.

I just stumbled onto your blog. My husband and I are thinking quite seriously about moving to Dublin. Of course I have tons of questions about living as an ex-pat in Ireland. Is there anyway I could email you and pick your brain a bit?

Friggin brain fart. Way to leave an anonymous comment asking to email someone :) If you're cool with the brain picking you can just email me at work mary_stewart@dell.com
