Wexbird here we come

So the bags are nearly all packed, car’s getting loaded up and we’re off on our annual trip to Wexbird as the kids call it. The extended August bank holiday weekend is meetup time for Conor’s clann: his sisters, their kids and his parents. Its good fun and the kids in particular love the time hanging out with their cousins.

The packing is a pain though. I pack an individual bag for each of our kids, influenced no doubt by my mother’s giving us a Quinnsworth bag each when we were younger and getting us to pack our own stuff when heading to my grandfather’s house in Cavan from Wicklow. Then the 9 of us would pile into the navy Fiat Mirafiori and off we’d go.

Here’s hoping for some good weather and some fun on the beach. Enjoy your weekends.

    I saw this on a favourite craft blog of mine and placed it somewhere in the back of my mind, just remembered it there. Might be of use to you next time….should have thought of it before when you mentioned you were packing on twitter!
