The Frosts Arrive


Saturday 29 November 2008

Well I went to Dundalk twice today.  Having left Eamonn at the front of DkIT I shopped in DSC.  Bought milk, carrots, mushrooms, new season potatoes, Christmas cards in Tesco.  €12 worth of stuffed pork in McCormick’s.  Left right Barker burgundy brogue in the shoemaker’s to have the loose sole "stuck."  Chat with a woman from Blackrock at the checkout in Tesco.  Paid with my credit card there. ~ €10.  Rosanna gave me a fry of rashers and eggs and a little black pudding for brunch.  Later around 4.00 p.m. when I brought him back from Town Eamonn fried 4 sausages for me and I myself fried 4 pieces of black pudding.  I made a sandwich with 3 of the sausages and ate it "dry" i.e. without any tea.  After I had consumed all this I had a mug of coffee.  Eamonn working away here and in the College all day at his corrections.  Rosanna scored 18 points for the 11 hole competition – the last round of the winter league.  Sheila Berrills on her team scored 23 points and Siobhan O’Hagan 14.  Anyway they came in runners up in the league and Rosanna got a small T-shirt.  "I’ll change it!" she said when she came home (long after I had gone to bed), "It’s too small."  Leah rang and got me up to answer the phone around 10 p.m. a few minutes after I lay down in bed.  Eamonn in the WEL with earphones on watching a film.  Sean Og rang around 5 worried about the pipes in Greenore.  It is a cold day.  He has a cold.  "I was spluttering and coughing on Friday and could not go to the Christmas office party," he informed me.  Put on a fleece and my Le Coq Sportif jacket over it and donned my gloves to walk to mass in my new Clark shoes with my lamp.  Stripped in the church to my Calvin Klein top and my navy T-shirt.  Gave €5 "to the priest."  Fr Paddy Larkin.

There was a good attendance by the choir including the two Baldwins, Fidelis, Anna Kiely, Jim Murphy (who is seldom there).  However I had the impression I was singing on my own a lot of the time.  But I think the general effect was ok.  I told Ann Murphy that I would attend the choir practice in Lordship on Sunday 7 December 2008 at 7.00 p.m.  "There will be only one practice," Ann informed me, "It will be all hymns we know."  Eamonn took a bath.  I rang Teddy in the afternoon.
