I'm very pleased I decided on Belfast for a mini break. I got back on Monday night, stuffed full of amazing food and having had a thoroughly lovely time. Lots of people gave me great tips about things to do and places to go but special mention must to go to Hazel for being full of ideas about wonderful restaurants and especially for tipping me off about St George's Market which I loved. I was only prevented from spending loads of money by virtue of taking a small hand luggage case with me and having no room to pack anything else into it.
We spent Sunday on a coach tour. I am sometimes a bit sniffy about coaches but this was ace. I didn't fancy getting to Giant's Causeway by public transport on a Sunday anyway but this covered loads of other stops - castles and views a plenty!
Yeah, I didn't dare go over the rope bridge. I'm not scared of heights but I can't cope without a solid surface under my feet. Stairs with no backs freak the hell out of me too.
Well, Giant's Causeway is a bit good, isn't it? I must admit, on the approach down to it I was thinking "Pretty scenery and all but hmmm, it doesn't look that amazing"...
Then you get up close and it's all "woah, look at the ROCKS!" So, um, look at the rocks everyone! Isn't nature a marvellous thing?
Then you gallivant all over them and it's brilliant. I was leaping from rock to rock, pretending I was in The Crystal Maze or Knightmare or something, and trying not to fall in the sea.
Everyone was super jolly too - a very nice Portuguese man took this photo. I should track him down and get him to take all my blog photos! I actually like it and I never like pictures of me.
Papa Odd Socks (excellent holiday companion that he is) took this one. It's coming up weirdly out of focus here which it isn't anywhere else, but it does actually show what I'm wearing.

I love this jumper. It's one of the three I bought in Harrogate last week and I really wasn't meant to be buying any of them, but when you're faced with lovely teal and cream stripes and waffly sleeves and general cosy jumperishness, what else can you do?
