Happy St. Patty's Day

May green be the grass you walk on,
May blue be the skies above you,
May pure be the joys that surround you,
May true be the hearts that love you.


Some may say the glass is half empty,
Some may say the glass is half full,
But the Irish will forever say
"Are you gonna drink that?"


Mary and a couple of other girls put on a short Irish dance show for their school yesterday. Here is a video clip of one of the dances Mary performed. She is not wearing the traditional dress and wig because it was too hot outside. Mary has a full day of performances today - she is dancing at 5 different events - starting with the St. Patrick's Day parade and ending tonight with a performance at a private party. I haven't seen Mary since yesterday morning (she spent the night at a friend's house). However, tomorrow is her 14th birthday, so I'm guessing she'll find her way back home for that!

Happy St Patrick's day to you all. Loved to see Mary's dance, she is very talented. I used to do morris dancing when I was a kid (very different).
Well it's Mother's Day in the uk tomorrow so I'm looking forward to being pampered,

Love Julie
