I just realised that today marks the 18th anniversary of my leaving Ireland and moving to the UK.
What’s interesting is that all my immediate family are actually all over in Dublin this weekend. Sandra and Angie had organised to go over for the weekend to get some time with Mom. It was also Mom and Dad’s first opportunity to meet my newest niece, Hannah-Grace. My bro Tom had to go over for work.
Me? Not so lucky…but then again… I am. I have an amazing wife and a good life here in the UK and while it could always be better I do feel blessed.
I’m thankful for all I have.
Would have been nice to have a family get together though! 😉
