The last few Saturdays have been Margie and Mr. Margie Saturdays, one of the days we loaded up the Morris with a picnic basket, a Cath Kidston throw and set off to County Wicklow, driving through the mountains
and ended up at the lakes in Valleymount, with a fine appetite for our salad, bread, cheese and fruit.
The next one we drove to visit friends in County Carlow, whom we had not seen for some time, we walked up the rocky hill at the back of their house and gathered froccans
before walking back along Shannon's Lane, sharing stories and news and promising to see one another before too long.
The lovely foxglove was growing among the ferns all along the roadside, in the mountains and the hills.
Who knows where Margie and Mr. Margie Saturday will bring us next time.
