MALTA TOUR – DAY 1 – 27TH MARCH 2018Mother. Relax!We have all arrived safe and well in Malta.It was a long day.Just waiting to go seemed to drag and drag.

ADSL MALTA DIARY 2018PROLOGUEI never really liked Ophelia.It wasn’t really her fault.More to do with Bill Shakespeare really and the fact that I had Hamlet for the Leaving Cert.But then she blew up quite the storm back in October to herald the most awful seemingly endless winter ever. Poor auld Boxer was at his wits end! Run off his feet!But I was quite...
