Day 1: Due to excitement get to airport super early ( had to wait an hour before the check in desk even opened). Change money to Euros and become upset that I didnt have as much as I wanted. Arrive in dublin and keep an eye out for a beautiful woman. Find my woman. Jump on bus to her home stopping in dublin centre for some groceries. Give her the gift I brought for her, and am seriously shocked by her gift to me - most thoughtful, laborious thing anyone has ever given me.Have some home-made potato and leek soup then head off to get ready for a night on the town. Start off with dinner in a great italian restaurant ( where I am almost constantly holding her hand across the table - didnt let it go much the entire trip) then off to the abbey theatre to see the premiere of a play, where I injured my shoulder but didnt let on. Then a quiet drink and back home.
Day 2: Up and off out to Glendalough and Powerscourt gardens on the tour bus. Will post pics at later date of this cos my descriptions dont do it justice. Ate our junk food picnic, read niamh her poem and some burns (apparently I am good at that). Came back to dublin and went to meet her parents - was meant to be a small snack before heading home where niamh was gonna cook dinner. But her mother had a huge spread laid out. Drank more tea this day than in the last 5years combined. Went to her old room to grab some books to give away (stole a kiss while her folks werent about). Went home where niamh cooked a wonderful shrimp and vegetable risotto then we watched A streetcar named desire and toddled off to bed
Day 3: headed into dublin in the morning. Went to the jameson whiskey distillery then on a walk around. Almost got trapped in a mass when we went to try and see St Valentine's shrine. Went to see the mummified corpses in St Michan's vaults. Headed to Jimmy Chung's chinese buffet for lunch, then back home and changed for heading off to Howth to see the sunset and get some chips (fries to you north americans). Shoulder finally gave in. Came home and went to sleep.
Day 4: A horrible day. Came back to glasgow
niamh was able to stay with me till I boarded the plane because of her security clearance for the airport. Didnt want to leave. Cried on the plane coming back.
