And here are two more for this list:

Let me know what you have done - perhaps post it on your blog. What from the list haven't you done that you would like to do? The thing I would like to do most is see the Northern Lights. I have almost kissed the Blarney Stone! We went to the castle and Hugh and Penny kissed it, but as I am absolutely terrified of heights I just couldn't lie down, on my back and hang out to kiss the blinking thing!

Did some crafting last night with my little circle of friends, so hope to share with you at the weekend when I have actually finished the layouts and photographed them.
