This being their half-term, my sister arrived for a few days’ visit with her two children – Ava, 8, and Hugo, 6. But half-term is not scheduled this week in all parts of the country – and particularly, it is not scheduled for here. This means that organised activities for children are not up and running, and local amenities suitable for children are all shut for the winter. But no problem! All you need is a dram of sunshine, a beach, a market, a stream, and a couple of imaginative youngsters.
They went back to Dublin yesterday and we miss them already!
