I am happy to report I have an extra long weekend off! I'm off Saturday to Tuesday, waheyy! I think it must be my first time having 4 days off since Christmas, apart from when I went to Prague but that's not the same as being off at home and honestly I did so much going and walking in Prague that it wasn't exactly a relaxing holiday.
My mini break didn't get off to such a great start because I felt SO emotional Friday night, it was weird I wasn't happy or particularly sad I was just so overwhelmed with feelings about everything, I had such a big cry in bed before I went to sleep. Then the next day my time of the month came so I guess that explained everything haha and apart from a few lady cramps I've been feeling great!
I hadn't planned on doing anything exciting for the four days, but then crazy old me who loves to treat myself decided to book into a hotel my cousin manages in the coastal town of Kilkee, Co.Clare. And let me tell you, I am so excited! As a child from the ages of about 7 to 12 I went here every summer with my family sometimes for 3 nights and sometimes a week! This was my absolute favorite place as a child. It was like my paradise. I remember all the stories I used to write in school would be set in Kilkee. Some of my most memorable moments as a child were in Kilkee. So I can't wait to go back and see it with my adult eyes, it probably won't live up to how I remember haha!
Initially I wanted to stay two nights; Sunday and Monday but since I had left it to the very last minute the Sunday night was all booked out (duh Monday is a bank holiday!) So I will just be staying on the Monday with my mum. We're planning on driving around and exploring the area because the coastal landscape is absolutely stunning down there. I will bring my big camera to take some killer photos of course! I especially want to go see the Cliffs of Moher which are one of the biggest tourist attractions in Ireland and I have never seen, them. I hear they're breathtaking so I can't wait to see them. Apart from that we're just going to relax, have some dinner and a couple of drinks. Hopefully it will be fun!
Right, I am off to enjoy the rest of my Sunday! I am just chilling at home with my family. Sunday's are family days for me! We're going to have dinner together and maybe go for a walk in the park!
Hope you're all having a lovely weekend! Let me know if you're doing anything fun :)
