This  magnificent little  fellow disrupted Bornacoola traffic this morning.

As I approached the school bus stop, this colourful chap stepped out on the road and calmly made his way to the other side. Glancing nonchalantly over his shoulder before he disappeared up a neighbouring driveway.

This is the kind of everyday occurrence that makes living in the country such a joy.

Since moving from the big smoke to small town Leitrim I have experienced the pleasure of a fox coming to the door for food, ducks living at the end of the garden, and looking out the window to see a family of hares hopping past! Geese flying across the morning sky are a regular sight as are  badgers foraging in the hedgerows.

Of course there are also the less lovely furry creatures knocking about. Mice, shrew, mink and pine marten and not forgetting rats!

There have been times when I really miss living in the city but for the most part I truly enjoy the sights and sounds that are part of country dwelling.

Day 10 down ……90 to go!






The Author

I'm living on the Leitrim border with my lovely husband and two terrific kids. It's the little piece of heaven that I dreamed of growing up. I work in Adult Education by day and during my free time I read, write, knit, plant and bake not always in that order. I blog about life, love, family and everything in between. Pull up a chair and have a browse while you're here. All the best, Karen
