The Irish sure do multiply fast

We have two Irish guys staying here at the big house. They're working for Dan's dad in his company and in an effort to save expensive hotel bills they're kipping down here for the time being. They're okay (can't quite remember their names so I have christened them 'Fergil' and 'Sharkey'). They keep using the washing machine a bit too often - but on the whole tidy up after themselves quite well and aren't too much of a nuisance. 

Earlier today I went to look for them to find out what their plans were - as I have been tasked with making them feel welcome - only to find that two had become three...they were in the dining room eating a huge fry-up (to which I hadn't been invited) and they had a friend with them. I was duly introduced.

When I came home later after my riding lesson I discovered yet anther one of them in the kitchen. So now there are 4 paddies in the big house - cooking a huge meal (to which I have invited myself - it's only fair). I don't really know who these other two are - but apparently one of them is a chef - so that works for me. 

It's a bit disconcerting that when I lay my head on my pillow at night there are now four random guys not thirty feet away from me. Tonight, I think I'll lock the adjoining door :) It feels a bit like we're running a B&B boarding house for those who have kissed the Blarney Stone.
