It’s been quite some time since I’ve shared one of my columns from the Irish Examiner’s Feelgood, so sit back, remember the heat wave and hopefully enjoy. “How about going to the beach tomorrow?” my friend said.

Here is my column from last weeks Irish Examiner’s Feelgood. Sadly this week I will have one reader less, as an amazing mother, sister, grandmother and friend to many, Sheila Courtney, passed away all too suddenly on Monday.

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.

Just as well Christmas only comes once a year for I am exhausted. Sitting here today, breathing in that unique scent of Christmas tree and cinnamon candles, I am relishing the relaxation. This is my favourite part of Christmas, where it is perfectly acceptable to sit down at 11 am to watch an old movie … More There I am in the paper #11
