It’s been very sad around here the past few days so I thought I’d share one of my pieces from the Irish Examiner’s Feelgood. Hope it brings a smile to your faces. September is within touching distance so… hands up who isn’t just a little bit happy? Don’t get me wrong I am not exactly … More There I am in the paper #39
Another of my articles from the Irish Examiner’s Feelgood. I have a confession to make which may surprise you…until yesterday I was an IKEA virgin. On many occasions I’d muttered, “I must go there someday,” but I never really meant it. However last week, perhaps due to an excess of alcohol swishing through my veins, … More There I am in the paper #38.
Today is my eldest child’s birthday, the anniversary of the day this mad adventure in motherhood began, the day, quite a few years ago, she made my greatest dream come true. As a little one she and I walked along hand in hand and I couldn’t imagine us not being close…until she became a teenager … More I hope you find the feet of a dancer.
It’s never a good thing to write when you are mad is it? Well who cares. So stand well back as there is smoke coming out of this post. Tonight I met a most charming individual, here in my very own village. This most wonderful of beings was a man who by the look of … More An ode to the Fecker I met in the village tonight.
Here we go again another one of my articles from the Feelgood in the Examiner. Booking holidays…hours in my life I’ll never get back.

If it had a title it would be…”I’m glad I couldn’t see the future.” Yesterday I walked from my kitchen to the hall and saw the front door lying wide open. Full panic mode swept over me, my heart racing, fear and dread taking my breath away. It lasted but … More There I am in the paper #29
Here is my article from last weeks Irish Examiner’s Feelgood. It tells the tale of what happens when a Dublin girl meets a Cork/Kerry accent. Recently one of my children has spoken of the possibility of leaving home to work in Dublin. I was only a little younger than she is when I left to … More There I am in the paper #28 (take 2 I did it again!)
Yesterday I had lots planned for today, after all it was Monday, the day after the weekend, the first day of the working week for most. Then my eldest said, “Tomorrow is my only day off until the end of June. Will we do something?” I should have taken the time to think about it, … More When you decide to skip Monday…
Tonight is the night after last night and I’m slowly recovering. The wonderful thing about a night away with a gang of friends is the memories it creates. Tonight as I sit here, a shadow of the woman I was when I headed away early yesterday morning, I can be heard chuckling at intervals as … More Reflections…
