I have been quite an inattentive blogger of late, so just a quick update on goings-on at Easter and the surrounding period.
Given the recent return of winter, it seems hard to believe that the apparently Mediterranean scene above is actually Crawfordsburn in March – another pic below the fold.
It was back to reality by the time of the traditional Simpson family Easter outing to Castlewellan – but one highlight of the day out was finding that yes, there are still red squirrels in Norther Ireland. Thanks to my cousin Ethan for the great photo…
Finally, because there can surely be nothing better to do on a cold day than a spot of protesting, I joined the picket outside the Health and Social Care Board calling for an end to health service cuts. This is one issue on which you can never make your voice heard too often.
