Cowart's Common Room
Cead Mile Fáilte

I have just nipped into the Common Room to wish you all a very bright, sunny and Happy St Patrick's Day or as we say here Lá Feile Padraig Naomh [law fay-leh paw-drig nave].

The daffodils are fluttering and dancing in the breeze beneath the blue cedar, the wood pigeons are walking like prosperous farmers harvesting worms from the lawn, there are chaffinches singing their hearts out and all of it is a tonic to make us realise that no matter how hard life can hit us, it still can bring us the balm of the sight and sound of nature.

May you all have a wonderful day, I am sure Cait will join me is saying that you are all Irish tonight raise a glass of whatever takes your fancy and let us toast The Purple Coo and all its Irish class mates!

Rest assured Frances Teddies are safe from the skip and Ivy...the middle Israel years is taken from a lovely item posted here on the coo a few weeks back about what part of the world a person is at varying ages, so middle Israel makes me mid fifties on Friday! Sorry for the obscurity! Still feeling like a twenty something though!

See y'all next week,

Happy St Patrick's day!! I'm taking part in some festivities this evening in a small hotel in the Vallee d'Aspe. There'll be lots of singing and dancing. I may have to slip in a couple of Welsh balades though..Have a lovely day everybody xx
