I didn't think it was possible but evidently the weather is worse in Belfast than it is in Glasgow! It's rained every day since I arrived on Sunday - although yesterday it did manage to stop by the time I left work. It's bloody freezing too.

Due to the fact that I'm working all day, I haven't managed to get out and see Belfast as much as I'd like to. I have, however, been out to West Belfast a couple times to visit my cousins and one of my cousin's girlfriend.

Paul is coming over from Glasgow this evening and will be spending the long weekend over here. Since Saturday is the Celtic v Aberdeen match (and a somewhat important game), we'll have to watch Belfast...which should be interesting. Sunday, my cousin has offered to drive us around Ireland so I'm really looking forward to seeing beyond Belfast. Fingers crossed that the sun will make an appearance.

Coincidentally, last night was the opening event for the Tenth Cathedral Quarter Arts Festival so I'll be checking that out next week.

And finally at some point next week, I'll be heading out to Stormont, which will hopefully be quite interesting. No doubt, more interesting than Holyrood.
