Today someone very dear to me is celebrating a birthday. I will travel to Dublin later to enjoy it with him and as we hug in celebration a lifetime of wonderful memories will surround us. I wrote a post for him a few years ago. Today I’ve dusted it off and updated it. But don’t … More Happy Birthday Little Brother. My Forever Friend.
It’s been a while since I posted one of my pieces from the Feelgood in the Irish Examiner. This was last weeks edition, inspired by the mid-term break. Last week I was struck down by a dreadful condition which affects large numbers of the population but most are unaware of its existence. The condition I … More There I am in the paper #43.
Apparently we here in Ireland will be slap bang in the middle of Storm Ophelia tomorrow. Up to a few days ago we were pretty oblivious to whoever Ophelia was and whatever she was doing but it would appear she is not impressed by our ignoring her. She has turned red and tomorrow is calling … More Storm Ophelia…I’m ready.
It’s been a hectic week. Yer man had a minor op, and in his haste to prove he was not sick and in need of no care whatsoever he decided to… Fix our phone…which wasn’t broken, but is now Mess with the modem…which left us four days without internet. However all is now good with … More There I am in the paper #42.
Here you go another of my articles from the Irish Examiner’s Feelgood magazine. I think it could be titled, ‘The joy’s and sorrows of texting’ I love my phone. I know it’s not PC to say so but I do.

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.
Another article from my column in the Irish Examiner’s Feelgood, featuring the seventh member of our house…the dog. Enjoy. (Oh and her name is not fluffball, she just didn’t give me permission to print her real name) I believe there are three types of people in the world, those who love cats, those who love … More There I am in the paper #37
Here you go again another one of my articles from the Irish Examiner’s Feelgood. It’s a stinker of a story! I hope you enjoy it. Do you know your family smell? Forgive me, I’m not saying you have poor hygiene, but whether you realise it or not, your family have a smell. I can’t give you … More There I am in the paper #34.
Here’s another of my articles from the Examiner’s Feelgood. It’s an old nursing memory which I hope makes you smile. As a student nurse in the eighties sexism was alive and well and a lot more blatant than it is today. Despite the fact it seriously annoyed me I often ignored it believing most men … More There I am in the paper #35.
To the thirty who read this previously I apologise but it would appear the masses who normally read my posts missed this. I think perhaps that was due to the fact that I managed to post it and date it sometime in early May. I’m not sure how I did that but when I discovered … More There I am in the paper #27 (take two)
