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, there are moments when … More A single white feather…

Isn’t life online a funny thing? We think we know each other but we only know what others wish us to know? As it happens I’ve been on holiday, for a whole seven days.
