We went to the North for the weekend. Had a fantastic time. Spent an afternoon in the Silent Valley. Looked at birds in Castle Espie.

Ate in 2 really good restaurants:

"Meet and Thyme" in Hillsborough - we stayed in Hillsborough so that we could eat there. It is a superb restaurant - one of the best that I've ever eaten in. I can't recommend it highly enough. It's mid-priced (4 adults - £110) but the food is from a restaurant 3 times the price. It is BYOB - just be aware that you need to bring your own.

"Poachers Pocket" in Lisbane. We were actually on our way to Daft Eddy's when we just liked the look of this as we passed through Lisbane. It is brilliant. Really good food. Good lunchtime atmosphere. Really good food. Have I mentioned - really good food.

That's not the funny bit. For a host of (stupid) reasons involving teenage daughters we ended up in Lisburn on Sunday afternoon. We got stuck in the traffic jam for the parade. My older girl noticed a banner on a pop-up shop

Lisburn Flag Shop. Open until July 11

I tried to get her to go in and ask for a Down GAA flag but she wimped out.
