Behind : Hugh’s Weekly Photo Challenge

Are we there yet....are we....

Are we there yet….are we….

the long climb up Cardiac Hill in Killarney, but we were rewarded with great views….eventually!

And we quickly hopped over to the Blue Lagoon between Malta and Gozo for a rest under the umbrellas!

Bringing back memories of a family wedding in Malta last July, and the smoke of fireworks in the air over the cathedral.

Thursday Doors : Pillars of Society!

2015-02-21 10.41.49This week I have another door from Malta for Norm’s Thursday Doors,  the carving, the crest over the door, and the balcony and pillars are all very impressive and I am sure it is a very important building.   The photo was taken in Mdina on a holiday there last year.

Thursday Doors : Seen Better Days

Old houses in Malta

Old houses in Malta

This week, my doors are from Valletta in Malta, a row of old traditional houses, with the type of  balcony that is seen a lot in this area, giving extra space to the upstairs room.  Even though the houses are quite old, they look freshly painted and the owners still take pride in their houses.

Weekly Photo Challenge : Today Was a Good Day

Today was a good day, cos I am nearly THREE years old

I woke up very early, and we were going to a very special party, a wedding party

with my Mom & Dad, my Nana, my sisters, aunts and uncles, and lots of other people

and we all got dressed up real nice, my sisters had matching dresses

and I had to wear a smart shirt and tie….but not for too long

as I never wore a tie before.

And my Aunty Erin wore a long white dress, and we were all waiting for her at the church,

and she was the last to get there

and I was worried that we might miss the party, cos after the church everyone

was kissing and hugging

and there were lots of photos and grown up drinks

and stuff like that

but we ran around and played with my uncles, and climbed and jumped

and then we went in a fast boat to the restaurant,

and at last

I got something to drink and my favourite food, besgetti and lots of tomato sauce

and I didn’t make too much of a mess

And then there were fireworks, and lots of smoke and noise

And tomorrow we are going swimming,

And soon it will be my birthday!

 

 

Travel Theme : Mellow

Looking out to sea

Looking out to sea

Summer and sunshine are two happenings that make us feel mellow, and lazy, and happy inside, like the old man above going for a stroll on the soft sand when the tide is out.

and on a stripy deckchair, under an umbrella, besides the turquoise water, is mellow and relaxing.

Can we have 2 G and T’s please!

We were in Malta recently for my daughter’s wedding, and on one of the evenings before the wedding, a few of us went for an early dinner at a local restaurant in St. Julians called Sardinella.   As it was just after 6 p.m., my friend and I decided it was time to have a little drink before dinner, so when the waitress came over, we decided to have our usual ‘tipple of choice’.   ‘Can we have 2 G and T’s please’, I said and off she went.

 

Drinks anyone?

Drinks anyone?

We could only laugh when she came back….with two beautiful cups and a matching glass teapot, …..filled with TEA!!  Not quite what we had in mind.

Something got lost in translation, I think, so after that we made sure to ask for ‘Gin and Tonic’ and so we enjoyed the rest of our nights out.

Have you ever had a similar experience?
