In Dublin for our anniversary and I found out our hotel is only a 1 min walk from Castleforbes Rd one of the locations for the Sometimes You Can’t Make It On Your Own video. The area has been extensively redeveloped and this is the last house left.

One of our regulars came into the library today for the first time since the first lockdown started. 

We'd been worried about him as he's a recovering alcoholic and we hadn't heard from him for 18 months. Thankfully, he seems to have avoided Covid so far, although he is homeless again. My colleague managed to find him a tent, as he's currently living in some nearby woodland. Hopefully we might be able to get him into a proper house/flat by the end of the week.

At least now he knows the library is open again, so he can come in and have a cuppa and a chat, and my colleagues can make him a hot meal if he needs one. 

As I said, we'd been worried about him, so it was good to see him back and we'll do what we can to support him.

I'm going to have a keyboard! (The musical instrument kind, not another computer accessory :lol: )

My dad works for a charity furniture shop and helps them collect items from donors. About a week or so ago, one of the collections included some musical instruments. Most of them have been handed over to a specialist music shop in town, but there were 2 keyboards and Dad's boss said they could accept those to sell in their shop. He wondered whether I might like one of them, I said yes and his boss has let him have it for a staff-discounted price :D 

Now that the items have been quarantined and tested, one of them will be mine as of tomorrow. 

Once we've taken it to the music shop to have some guide letters put on. And bought a book with some tunes to practice :)

May 4th 2025.

I'd have to find a band first though, as I can't sing to save my life  🤣

(Don't worry, I have no actual plans for taking over the music world :lol:

I now have the keyboard. With guide letters, all properly secured on it's stand. And have spent a fun afternoon testing out all of the different sound effects and features.

There's even an option for the keys to make helicopter sounds... :lol:

Although the music shop is currently sold out of beginner's books, so I'll have to try again next week or see if the library has one.
