It was really lovely having Eimear to stay for a week. Even though she arrived in what is supposed to be the coldest month of the year it turned out to be not bad at all. Although despite a foot or two of snow on the ground, the lack of new snow was very disappointing for Eimear! We had a couple of crazy non-stop days of looking around Fredericton followed by a couple of days lounging around watching movies. We also went ice skating on a couple of outdoor rinks on a beautiful sunny day and played hockey with an OJ bottle for a puck. Eimear came to Brendan's babies in the library session and was there to comfort him when he fell and got a carpet burn while his mummy was chatting and not watching him at all! We went shopping in second hand shops and walked around downtown taking pictures of old (for this side of the Atlantic) houses. We also had a girls' night out one night leaving the boys at home. It was my first proper night out involving drinking a large amount and dancing a lot- very much appreciated and about time!
All in all a great week. We love having people to stay so... everyone else- get out here sometime soon!!
