Another one of my articles from the Irish Examiner’s Feelgood. I suppose it could be called, ‘Holiday Reflections’. So, in the flash of an eye another family holiday is over.

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.

Here’s my article from The Irish Examiner’s Feelgood. My apologies but it was published two weeks ago. I can’t imagine how you managed to hold out for it this long. I hope it was worth the wait.
