My new profile photo is from a New Years’ Day walk near the farm my mum grew up on, which is still farmed by my uncle. This old house and the area around it are referred to as “Macaleese’s” after the family that used to live there nearly a century ago. It was used to store hay bales until the top floor collapsed. I love it.

The doorway of a ruined house. You can see the old fireplace through the door. The fireplace. I wonder when this was last lit, and if they knew it at the time. This little lean-to was (we think) built by my Granda for storage. My family.
