Maybe this is a sign.

Clio being gone, I mean.

She helped me get my memory back but once I remembered who I was and what I should be doing, all I did with it was go domestic. I got the house and the kids and I left behind what it is to be a saint.

I was greedy.

Maybe I'm supposed to leave that behind? I don't want to. I want this happy life more than I've ever wanted anything, but it's been nearly a year since she went missing. Ella is happily at Jacob's. The twins could be just as happy with Dewi, surely?

I don't know. I don't know what I'm thinking.

I honestly think I believed my feast day might bring her back.

It didn't.

The twins are home though, and Mairead is too. Ella's still with Jacob, which is fair enough. I'm trying to hold it together. I'm doing better than I was before. I have to do better, I'm a father now.

Fuck, I miss her so much.

Feast day was a nightmare and a half. Imagine experiencing an entire country worth of drunkeness while grieving. I think I've come out the other side of it now, thankfully. I even checked in at work.

I just have to get on with things until she comes back.

Ella is going to be starting school soon. And by that I mean next year, but already I'm all panicky about it. She informed me she's smarter than I am though, so she should be just fine. She's probably not wrong either, considering her parents...

The boys are doing well and Mairead has settled back into her school life too!

I missed all this stuff. Sure, the ancient Romans didn't have high school, but there was a lot of schooling I missed out on because some assholes thought I'd make a better slave than a noble. But boy do I know a lot about sheep!

I should not be jealous of my teenage daughter for being able to go to high school, it's so stupid. I'll just focus on Halloween upcoming instead.

HALLOWWEEEEEEEEEN!

I...I think I heard him today. Nicholas. Praying, I mean.

I think I heard him praying to me. And I don't know where it came from, but I definitely-

It was him. I'm heading out to go looking. If one prayer got through, another might. If whomever has him is letting their guard down then we can get him back.

My brothers are all in the same city again! I feel so complete. The boys are growing so fast and it's- I can't even put into words how amazing they are. Clio is the perfect partner. Mairead and Ella are also indescribably amazing!

Filling Andrew in on my life has made me realise just how far I've come. It's also made me realise just how integral to all of that Clio has been.

I never want to look back.

Georgie? I got to work today after being out for three weeks what with ghosts and being a drunken party favour, and my co-workers said Wrath hasn't been in either. I tried to call her but couldn't reach her? And I'm kind of scared to go over there and check on my own because I don't want her to crush me into bits, but I'm worried. I'm really worried.

BABIES!

So glad the twins might be old enough to sleep during the night by the time my feast day rolls around, since Clio might be on her own for a while. Or having to deal with four kids. At least George and Mairead are here! Though I am wondering about traveling to the farm in Ireland actually. I think maybe spending my feast day there might help me avoid some of the craziness of the day. Contributing to the care of my own children is a thing I would like to continue to do. Besides, I want them to know the farm as early as possible.

...going to erect a HUGE FENCE to block off the damn death cliff though. My heart just felt like it fell out of my butt just thinking about them getting anywhere near the edge of that thing, eesh.

A pro-life group is all up in arms because they're not allowed to march in the St Patrick's Day parade.

“I find it very disturbing that a door had opened for a gay group and been slammed in the face of a right-to-life group,” Rex told the Irish Voice.

I, for one, don't find it disturbing that a group supporting equal rights is finally allowed to march, and a group supporting misogyny and taking away the rights of women isn't.

But no one asked me.

Honestly, it's not even difficult to do proper research on who St Patrick was to know which of those groups he would support.

New obsession: Moroccan Mint tea. Can't stop drinking it.

Also I kind of want to put a pool in the back yard. Which has nothing to do with tea, I've just been thinking about it for a while. I would be the most majestic seahorse or something.

Okay, okay mostly I want to have pool noodle fights with George.

Autumn is coming and I'm already excited for Halloween too. I am busy working out my costume and Mairead wants help with hers too. I want to go a haunted house! A HAUNTED POOL! No. No, that's silly.

My feast day is almost here, cue the time of year I'm impossible to be around, and I have to be peeled off the ceiling on the best of days. I can't help but be excited though! Parades and green and confetti, wheeeeee!

I wish I could go to the parade and bring Ella and Mairead with me. It's safer if I watch it on the telly though. Otherwise I could end up comatose. And that's just...not fun.

You know what IS fun? SHAMROCK SHAKES. LOTS AND LOTS OF SHAMROCK SHAKES.

[For Christmas, Patrick gets several of his favorite people presents. He spoils Mairead and Ella rotten.

For Clio, he gives her an antique necklace, a claddagh ring from his own culture, and a rare antique book.

For Agatha, he gives her a 17th century Cross Pendant.

To George he gives a trebuchet kit and a special mug for his tea. Additionally he included a toy for Bunny.

For Famine, he sends energy gummi bears, bacon hot sauce, and hot spicy powder.]

Thanksgiving was wonderful, thanks to my beautiful Clio who made an amazing meal, and our beautiful family. It was just so nice to be surrounded by love.

Not that you can ever make me take anything seriously for long though... )

That's one of the dog's toys but I decided it was a turkey or something. Go figure.

And before the office left for the holiday, this happened. )

It was considered team-building or something. Mostly it was just an excuse to have a beer at work and then act like an idiot for a few hours in the staff room. It was very nice! Back to work on Monday, but Christmas break is looming ever closer. We have a party before then too. I wonder if they'll get me to do the entire Thriller dance.

It could happen.

How on Earth do you possibly get Padraig to stop hurting himself?

He came over here and it was nice to see him, but then I asked him if he had hurt himself and his back was honestly a mess. Worse than I've ever seen it. It was more like back on the farm than holy rite or whatever.

I used to do bad things to myself too when I thought I had messed up. I never covered it up by saying it was holy though. I knew I was messing up more when I did it. I think he honestly believes he's doing the right thing and I don't know how to help him.

I've been in this wonderful and stable relationship for a year now and I didn't even know I could have something so amazing, let alone for a whole year. And more. I feel so ridiculously happy. Which is strange because I don't think I've been really happy before in my entire long life. But I have this wonderful partner, an amazing family, and I'm getting back into my music.

I don't know if I deserve this, but I've started to accept it doesn't matter. I have it anyway.

I fell asleep in the treehouse this afternoon on accident. Don't ask why I was up there because I'd rather not explain just why I like reading up there. Anyway, I woke up and there was a bird in there with me. I think it was trying to make a nest out of my hair.

It was really annoyed when I sat up and thwarted it's plans.

Thinking about going back to playing music live again. It was always such a release for me and now that things are good in my life, I don't need that release. But that doesn't mean I wouldn't still enjoy it.

I might have a venture out to see which pubs are interested. I used to have a good name with a few of them.

Should I go back to school mid-semester this year? I never thought I was all that clever. And I don't even know what I would study. Just seems like...if I have the time and I have the long-standing issue, I should maybe do something about it.

Something to think about anyway. I could study music!

In the meantime, I finished up with a big client today and we managed to get her resident status and into a great position. I love it when things go our way. I'm so happy I found exactly where I needed to be, though I know now that the office could work without me. I could work fewer hours and do other things.

I really want to go back to Puerto Rico or somewhere else beachy. Despite my pale skin, I love it so much.

I'm in the middle of a huge immigration case, however, so leaving now would be really irresponsible. My guardianship for Mairead is going to be full and legal next week, at least. That's a really wonderful thing.

She's been showing me The Princess Diaries. Anne Hathaway is great!
