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. I’m
Hello from sunny and crisp Tramore. Cars, trucks, vans, and even the odd digger are buzzing past the window here. A microcosm of Ireland on the way to work. The kids are whizzing by on their scooters too. Nice to see that the engine is not electricity but pedal power, with legs pushing hard to
We are back after missing last week. I am blaming my nephew for having his wedding on a Thursday! He married a beautiful Indian lady, and we had a super day. There was even live music indoors and people dancing! The bride’s parents and brother came from New Delhi and were lucky to get their

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.
Wow, what a morning out there! That’s wet rain in its truest sense. A flock of wet seagulls were stuck to the balcony window this morning. They had that look of disappointment. Knowing they made a mistake coming back from their holidays in Africa too early. It’s week 11 now without a haircut. My locks
Hard luck to Waterford last weekend. What can you say? They came up against a team that was on fire on the day. Limerick were like a human wrecking ball that smashed everything before them. Their whole team was excellent and had 3 or 4 wonder performances on top of that. Huge credit to Waterford
