Anniversary Drinks!/The Green Hills of Africa/Great Jones Street

Aisling and I went out for the first time together since Harrison was born, for our four year anniversary.  We ended up eating in Eden Bar & Grill in the new ‘Creative Quarter’ in Dublin and I have to say it was very good.  After that we had a few beers in The Dame Tavern & Brogan’s before going home just in time for Harrison’s next feed.

I finished ‘The Green Hills of Africa the other day and it was better than I thought it was going to be.  The decscriptions of the landscape and the animals were excellent (even if you don’t like the idea of hunting) and the fact that they were drinking beer and whiskey everyday made me long for a cold one myself in the heat we have been having. 

I have since started Don Delillo’s ‘Great Jones Street.  I am about half way through this now and he is such an artist.  It is so far my least favourite of his books that I have read but it is still very good and it is impossible not to see the talent he has. 

The Tour de France is going great this year, Chris Froome looks in amazing shape but there is always the chance of an off day that can change the whole face of the race.  I got my own bike fixed and have started cycling to work to get some kilometres in and hopefully lose some inches at the same time.

My own writing is at a bit of a standstill at the moment but that is to be expected with all the other stuff going on.
