A Week in Monkstown, County Dublin, Ireland - 1st March 2011

Isobel has a meeting for work on East Point Business Park near Dublin Port, and so - as Nosher doesn't have much else to do at the moment on account of being made redundant - we all head over for the week. Nosher is mostly hanging out with Fred during the day, although Evelyn takes Fred in to her creche for a few hours on three mornings. For some of the other free time, Nosher and Fred poke around Blackrock and the coast, and head in to Dublin on the train for a few hours. On the way over, our Ruinair 737 is broken as the bogs aren't working, so we all have to pile off and switch planes, which is a massive pain with the buggy and the metric tonne of toddler guff that has to be hauled around.
