Here you go, my column in this weeks Irish Examiner’s Feelgood. Enjoy. Watching television the other night I tuned into RTE’s ‘We won the lotto.’ Who hasn’t dreamed about what it must be like to not have to worry about money? I was in London recently and strayed into the watch department of a very … More There I am in the paper #53
Yesterday I had the great joy of travelling back in time. Yes, I got the chance to remember what it was to have a little one about the house. At one time this house I call home was full to the rafters with young children, three of my own four, two little ladies I minded … More Back to the future.
This day next week my youngest will turn sixteen. As I ponder where the years have gone I was reminded of this post I wrote a few years ago. When the last door closes. Last night was a night like any other. There was no sign. No warning. We said ‘Goodnight’ and off she went, … More A trip down memory lane.
Here you go my piece in the Feelgood with the Irish Examiner last week. Bear in mind it was immediately after Valentines Day. Enjoy.

Could it be true? Am I about to write something nice for yer man? Well, I believe there was a blue moon a couple of weeks ago, so for the day that’s in it here goes. I wrote this a while back and thankfully it still rings through… Happy Valentine’s Day, E. ‘Do you mind … More Hey there, yer man… Happy Valentine’s Day.

I have just returned from the trip of a lifetime to London with my three girls. Yer man was surplus to requirements so stayed at home and my son was at college. Over the years we had hoped to bring our children to Disneyland Paris but it was never the right time financially. As I … More Good or Bad parenting?
Here you go, another of my articles from the Irish Examiner’s Feelgood and beware you might not sleep well after reading! Don’t you love this time of year when children return to school healthy and within days come down with the plague. But I wonder is that worse than when they come home and say, … More There I am in the paper #50
Last weekend yer man and I headed off to Prague for a few days. It was a fabulous break in a very beautiful city. A trip such as that can of course highlight the many differences between the two of us, such as my love of history and interest in castles and churches which I … More Irish and proud?
So here you go another of my hilarious (pushing it?) articles from my column in the Irish Examiner’s Feelgood. From my earliest tree climbing days, I believed I was equal to any boy and went out of my way as a young girl to prove it.
