Next week I will pack my youngest into the car,and we will drive off to Dublin, to stay with my mum for a few days. Even though I left Dublin over twenty five years ago to live 200 km away in Cork, with my new husband and subsequent four children, I still say as I leave… More The place I call home.
Good luck Europe! No there is no big sporting competition on you’ve not heard about, nor am I commenting on Brexit or ISIS. What I am referring to is the fact that today two of my children left home, backpacks loaded, for a week travelling Europe together. To say their travel plans are ambitious would… More The ties that bind.
So I met the yank Beth from ‘I didn’t have my glasses on’ and I know you are all waiting with bated breath to see how it went? Was she a crazy stalker? Was she in fact a he, as my children suggested? Was she anything like I imagined? Sadly for those of you who… More I made it out alive!

You may not be able to see it, but can you feel the happiness in this post? Today after one hundred years of waiting (seriously), we got a new couch for our sitting room. Some of you may be unsure as to what I mean by a sitting room, as I’m not sure if it’s… More I had a dream…
I wondered today whether to post this, as Ireland is reeling in shock at the choice made by Britain to leave the EU. It seemed wrong to post something trivial when so many are fearful what may lie ahead. However Britain’s choice only makes me feel more protective and proud of my own country. We… More Come on you boys in green.
So today is Father’s day here in Ireland. Sadly I’ve no Dad to call or send a gift to. No scouring the shops for a card that comes close to saying all I’d love him to hear. All I can do is hold him close in my heart, speak to him in my mind and… More For you… because I got you no present.
