Crum in Castledaly

So last weekend until Tuesday just passed my parents – mum and Chris, or Crum as I like to call them – came and stayed with us!

My mum has stayed with us before, but this was Chris’ first visit. Chris has no children of his own and has done comendably well adopting me and my 4/5 children, and my sister who can be quite dysfunctional at times (she wont mind me saying that). I did read the kids the riot act about letting Papa Chris get some sleep, but the first morning they were all up by about 6am and arguing over who would sit next to him at breakfast – oh to be loved by little people!!!

Our first day together we visited Clonmacnoise again and Ballinahown park. Crum had a little tea there and said it was lovely, we stayed and played on the swings and made some new friends. I love Clonmacnoise, we have already got our moneys worth of the family pass as we went again this morning!!!

When we got home Crum went off and Chris stocked up on all the things that we needed but would probably never buy as we are on a tight budget. We now have a fab new patio set, some new pots and pans, wine glasses and microfibre cloths!!! In all honesty though the cloths are really good, I cleaned my windows with them this morning and have to say I may be converted!!

Saturday we headed to OUR beach. It has been claimed by the Clevs now because its our favourite beach in Ireland because its nice and close, the kids can swim and its all round perfect for us. My mum is such an awesome nanny. My own nanny and grandy (her mum and dad) are the actual best grandparents you could ever imagine. We went to the beach with them once when I was little and my grandy made toothpick flags for my sandcastles. I can imagine Nanny Barry and Papa Chris doing something similar in years to come.

 Papa Chris is self confessed beach/sand phobic. He is much happier at a nice resort by the bar and pool. The fact he got down and got sandy and built a bridge for Maxi means the world to me! I think he secretly enjoyed it. Next time they come over we might even picnic at the beach. Mind you 5 children, sand and food might be a step too far!!!

Saturday afternoon was spent at the Pier Head (where we went a few weekends ago with Mr Clevs pal) where we had a lovely meal and a drink and enjoyed the view! I may have forgotten about the food and pregnancy rules and scoffed a load of calamari, some sushi and some crab, I reckon the omega 3 will do the baby good!! A stroll around the harbor after lunch and then us Clevs went home and left Crum to do some more exploring.

Sunday was spent having a relax and a chill out, as well as taking delivery of a load of turf (more on that later) and Monday was spent at the Tullamore DEW distillery. Having been to Killbeggan and Tullamore I would say do Tullamore sans kids and enjoy a nice lunch in the cafe there after, but if travelling with children Killbeggan is the way to go!!

I certainly loved having Crum come and stay with us, as did Mr Clev (Chris kindly stocked up the alcohol cupboard for him!) and the children have spent the last few days since they left pining for them. I will see my mum again at the end of August, and I think they plan to come together around Christmas.

I have to stop writing this recap now because I miss them and I will sink into a deep pit of depression if I think about how far away we live from them anymore, also my dinner is cooking and Im getting hungry.

On the agenda for this weekend – the glenamaddy show, chilling out, and laying down the law to a certain 7 year old who refuses to go to bed!!!
