I must say it does not feel much like spring at the moment, we have had several falls of snow over the last week. Yesterday was my birthday and normally we would go out for a meal but the thought of having to drive for an hour or more to get to a decent restaurant was not appealing so I settled for fish and chips from our local town. It wasn't bad, in fact the fish was very good but the chips are not worth talking about. Hopefully this weather won't last too much longer and then we will have our meal out.
When we first moved here there was a great restaurant only two miles away, good food, all Irish, good atmosphere , it even had a decent wine list, it always seemed to be busy. Why it closed is anyone's guess.

With the weather being as it is it seemed a good time to redecorate our bedroom, it is one room that we have not done, in fact I doubt it has been done since the previous owners built the extension. We had bought the paint for it some time ago but the garden always takes priority. As it will now have colour, it was just plain white before, I have decided that I will also need to recover the bedhead, the nearest place to get material is an hours drive away, but, we also need butter! Yes, we can buy butter in our little town, normal butter but we only use that for cooking not for eating. There is only one place that we can buy organic butter and that is the dreaded Tesco. Now I hate shopping, I especially hate Tesco, badly stocked with the most unhelpful staff you will ever meet, but they sell English Organic butter. So every three months we make the trip, normally clearing out their supply of butter. We always manage to combine this trip with other things that we need and are only available from a large town, this coming week's trip will be for the material to cover the bedhead and gas cylinders which we can get for nearly seven euros less than in our local town, so the trip will be worthwhile.
Once again we are in an egg glut situation, and it's too early and cold to start hatching eggs, normally I would make lemon curd, but we still have two large tubs in the freezer
