I have the been given the gift of gab! Today we kissed the Blarney stone, so we have goodly speech now 😉
Okay, now you’re probably wondering, what is the Blarney stone? (unless you already know of course) The Blarney stone is this special stone that, if you kiss, gives you eloquence. We think it gives you the gift of gab. Seems very easy, doesn’t it?
Sadly, the stone isn’t in the middle of a room, easily accessible and kissable.
You have to climb all the way to the top of the castle via spiral stairs (which I love and mum doesn’t) and then wait in a long queue before lying on a blanket, holding two bars on the wall and leaning backwards over the dizzying drop (its over a hole all the way down to the ground). You reach your head down while the man holds you to make sure you don’t fall and kiss the farthest stone. Congrats, you now have the gift of Eloquence (or the gift of gab)
It was fun.
