There’s no sign of the heatwave that’s hitting Spain and France in Tramore this morning. Rain is on the way with a high of 15 degrees. Seville is 26 degrees at half 8 in the morning with a high of up to 42 degrees expected tomorrow. Sweltering. No wonder there were so many half-naked men

Bookkeeping Is My Thing

My sister is a nurse – our very own on-call 24-hour health adviser, whether she likes it or not! There’s a reassurance in knowing that she’s always at the end of the phone if there’s even a slight medical emergency. Her husband is self-employed and funnily enough she feels the same way about me.

There Are Funny Moments Too

Timmy the cat is looking out the window at these metal boxes with wheels whizzing by. Trying to spot his own kind but no joy yet. He’s out with me as the man giving him breakfast is pressing keys on a colourful screen. My ignoring is leading to more affection on his part. I sense

Our Values – What do they mean?

It’s a wet and windy one out there. There’s a flood of water coming down outside. I am expecting to see a family of ducks on the grass and Timmy is hoping I am right. The guy driving the JCB digger up to the shop must be feeling smug. No floods are going to stop

Tax Strategy For Your Business

I took a week off last week to recharge the batteries in Co. Wicklow. There were plenty of activities once I could get the children out of bed. Ziplining at Kilruddery and mountain biking in Ballinastoe woods were a highlight. Although the last one was like a 3 hour spinning class in the heat. We

Bookkeeping Is An Investment – Part II

Hi there from gorgeous Sunny Tramore. Please let it stay like this for the long weekend. It’s Friday yeah! I was a very happy man last weekend. Amazing weather, so we took a trip to Kilkenny and had a lovely stroll around the grounds of Kilkenny Castle. There was a bustling market outside, with amazing

Bookkeeping Is An Investment

Hello there from very dull, foggy, dank Tramore. The seagulls can’t locate the chips on the prom with the fog. They are wondering when Summer will start, and the chatter is about holidays abroad. The football hasn’t done anything to brighten my spirits. Man Utd managed to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. Very

It’s great to see a stretch in the evenings and brighter days following the near monsoon earlier in the week. A lot of very stressed-out parents are ecstatic that their little pride and joys and going back to school. Food bills will fall and relaxing tea breaks will rise. The hair is gone beyond ridiculous.
