Missing Thursday Doors

We’ve moved! Cavan is now our home county and it’s really lovely here. At present we have no internet, in fact, we don’t even have an electricity supply, yet, but battery operated lamps and candles do a great job for now. However, I can access wifi a couple of times a week, so hopefully I’ll soon be resuming my regular Thursday Door posts – I’ve really missed participating in it.

One of the bonuses of living further north in the country is the fact that we are nearer family and next year we’ll be spending lots of time on the northern and north west coast, especially Donegal. We’ve been there a few times and on our last visit rented a house in Ardara, which featured in a Thursday Doors post, of course.

If you’d like to see Donegal from the air, have a look at Scenic Flyer’s beautiful video, courtesy of Kevin.

There are more fabulous videos on Scenic Flyer’s Facebook page, with a nice bit of history included. Well worth a visit.

  2. Did you move into the house you were renovating or did something else happen that I missed? I’d miss Thursday Doors, too, and we miss you (and Norm, as he’s out having vacation.)

    • We moved in (upstairs) almost two weeks ago, Janet. Downstairs is completely pulled apart but the two bedrooms upstairs are nice and cosy. We’re trying to get as much as possible done before the really cold weather sets in (probably late November).

  4. Wow, living off the grid has its challenges. I miss it dearly even when camping sometimes. Do you have hot water?

    The county is gorgeous! I’m looking forward to seeing more of your new home, and countryside in the future. Here’s to getting all you need to get done finished before the really cold weather sets in!

  5. I googled your new area, and it is about as far north as you can get. πŸ™‚ Living upstairs while you renovate the first floor I can understand, but I applaud your fortitude in going without electricity. I’ve camped, and I’ve gone without electricity for a few days, but I guess I’m a wimp when it comes to power. πŸ™‚ I hope all your DIY goes as planned and you’re all settled in before cold weather sets in.

    • Thanks, Judy. I thought going without a fridge would be the hardest part so we thought about a small three way fridge we could use with gas, but the grocers and supermarket and butcher shops are all within a few minutes walk so I’m not really missing the fridge – yet.
