An act of imagination and generosity by one smart woman has landed us in Galway for a week. We are staying in Claddagh, the very heart of the city, and are a stone’s throw from the beach. Even better, we are a ten minute walk from Charlie Byrne’s bookshop. This is, officially, the best bookshop in Ireland.
It’s higgledy piggledy, ramshackledy gorgeous.
Just look at that chair!
There’s a sorting hat in the children’s section; I’m Hufflepuff, Husband is Gryffindor. They sell chocolate frogs (Freddo bars) and have a special deal on invisibility cloaks.
This is today’s haul.
The weather is just awful; I don’t need any excuse to get back in to bed and start reading. You may not hear from me again for a while……
