Since it’s Thursday I’m sharing one of the posts from my first month of blogging!
Although I was born and raised in England, I spent large portions of my life in Ireland. My parents moved there and built a house when they retired so that’s where I go to visit my Dad these days.
My Dad has always been somewhat deaf but it’s worsened with age to the point where he now can’t hear at all. It’s quite hilarious as he thinks I now talk with an American accent (I don’t!!)

He always says “You do the talking” when we go places as “The Irish love Yanks!”
