look ! she even wears those wellies into the city of Galway- a day in the life of a country mouse who braves weather to triumphantly ring the bells


this is ME coming down from the medieval bell tower YESTERDAY of St. Nicholas cathedral in Galway , which is behind my market stall....the bell ringer Jilly , also has a market stall on saturdays and invited me to join her !
I rang out away in a manger and did a peal of bells with her , it was SO EXCITING !!

driving to Galway early yesterday morning (scary.....)

me and fiona at my stall
THATS what makes it worth all the work and trauma of braving the ice and snow ...dear fiona made me and A some lovely cup cakes and brought them specially in to me ! (thanks fiona xx)
