You Know You Live In Ireland When...

Lá Fhéile Pádraig Sona!

  • Your 'next day delivery' order arrives a month later.
  • You don't even consider driving at the speed limit due to the gigantic potholes peppered along the roadside.
  • You look out your window and see next doors sheep eating your tulips.
  • You don't see anything wrong with stopping in the middle of the road to have a conversation with a pedestrian.
  • Your plumber says he will be there at 10am and arrives a week later at 3pm.
  • You automatically know who "Your man" is.
  • You understand the difference between British Queens and Golden Wonder.
  • You are obsessed with talking about the weather.
  • The thift store charges you full price.
  • You are not offended when someone asks you "Whats the craic?"
Happy St Patricks Day!

So neat to see what life is like in other places.

The laid back, relaxed lifestyle is very much normal where I live too. Your 5th point about the plumber actually happened to me several months ago.

Oh, this was quite funny to read! I especially like the part about the sheep eating tulips ~ now that would be a fun sight! =)

Just wanted to thank you so much for your kind comment on my blog this morning! You have a lovely blog here, and I see we have a lot in common! I have three children ~ 8, 4, and 1 ~ and we are homeschooling as well. I think I'll be stopping back! =)

Blessings to you from the USA,
