Yesterday morning I got a bus to Galway to see my little sister Katie perform in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat with her amateur dramatic musical society (the ClareGalway Society). It was a great night! I am completely biased of course but I thought Katie was wonderful as Mrs Potiphar and it was a wonderful production all round.
I came back today and honestly it feels like I was away for a few days and nights. Galway is a special place and has that effect on you. Particularly as it is feeling very Christmassy and festive at the moment.
And here I am with the woman of the hour after the show. My mother took this photo and continuing the longstanding joke in our family about her photography skills there's her finger top left. She is also famous for chopping heads off so actually we are lucky that this pic is semi decent at all!
