September 1st 2016

Image result for first day back at schoolI got a lovely email telling me that I was missed in the playground this morning.

WOW – Just imagine: This is the First “September 1st” that I have not been in a school playground since I started in Junior Infants, Warrenmount at 4 years of age.  I’ve stood in “líne”s as a primary and secondary student, as a teacher, as a mum.

So where was I this year? Thanks to the generosity of Scoil Choca’s Parents Association I awoke in the Blue Book Hotel in Bushmills.

Originally a 17th century lodge, it is now a luxury hotel only a stone’s throw from the Giant’s Causeway. So where better after a scrumptious breakie to celebrate my first “out of school” September than at the UNESCO site carved by Fionn Mac Cumhal(????) – sitting on the hexagons carved out over 60 million years by the cooling and shrinking of lava flows.
