Well what do you think of the new ‘My thoughts on a page’? I’ve given it a makeover. Last night while trying to catch up with reading my fellow bloggers posts, I clicked into my good online pal, my weary minds blog. I’d noticed (with great envy) last week. her new look, and tonight as I… More The new me.
I’ve heard the advice a thousand times, if you wish to finish a story or a book you should write a little every day. Just write. Really? I am not a professional writer so I have no deadlines. I can write what I want when I want to. However I cannot write when I don’t… More Just write?
Ah the night of the red moon. Did you see it? They told us it would a very rare, spectacular occurence. I thought I’d better make an effort to see it as I’m not getting any younger. Only the other day I’d a headache, and yesterday I sat for so long I had a sore… More The night of the red moon.
I am reminded today of comments I’ve received from friends and my mum, ‘Don’t dare put me in your blog’. Sometimes I’ve ignored them and thankfully I’ve been forgiven.

Over a year ago a blog buddy of mine, Duncan,from Madhatters, suggested I put some of my posts together and publish a small ebook for Christmas. He said he would… More To writers and my readers… I’m looking for your help please.

Many of you will perhaps have no idea that here in Ireland we have two national sports, Gaelic football and Hurling, affectionately known as G.A.A or gaah. These are part of every parish in Ireland with children playing them from an early age. While other sports threaten to take away some of their popularity, they… More Real men play sport in Ireland
A year ago I got fed up with that gang over in ‘Freshly Pressed’ always missing my posts so I decided to begin my own award called ‘Freshly Impressed’. Each week I’d select a few posts I’d really enjoyed and share them here with those of you who might have missed them. Sometimes they were… More Freshly Impressed is back.
I’ve been a fairly useless wife for some time now, even though I’d never admit it to you know who. Take a measure of laziness, a teaspoon of ‘I hate housework’ and a bucket load of ‘I want to be on holiday’ and you will just about get what I’m like. However, this morning as I… More Who can I sue?
