Just had a great weekend in Belfast, the land of my birth, visiting friends, talking to groups and individuals, it was superb.
It was a sad time as well though, I guess because for us as a family Belfast was the happiest time of our lives. Had a few slightly melancholic moments in my head nothing that made me cry or anything like that, just a sadness at thoughts of what could have been. Not that I am a prisoner to my past, but I can't help but wonder some times if we had stayed where would I be now?
Although I guess a more optimistic outlook would be if we hadn't left I wouldn't be here. Which is probably a lot more positive.
I have this personal veiw that the Irish are slightly more hospitable, open and easy going than the English. I have nothing against English people I am married to one. I just think the Irish give you more food when you go to visit. English people quite often just have a cup of tea on it's own, I don't think I have ever had a cup of tea in Ireland without being offered copious amounts of biscuits.
Maybe thats why I struggle with my weight because my roots and heritage mean that I am programmed to eat more bicuits.
Anyway "I LOVE BELFAST"
