Winter gone

  We have experienced what feels like the longest winter ever. What didn't help was our heating system wasn't working properly. No matter how well we had the stove going the house was still cold. The oil boiler needed a service and we also had to get a radiator changed. By chance I saw a …

2018, Here I am!

Ok, here I am in County Clare, Ireland. Last year I (well the other half eagerly agreed and encouraged it all) moved. Big life change. Also, a rather large scale adventure. Selling and buying houses in two very different countries was challenging. The articles I'd read about delays in Ireland proved to be untrue in …

I went on a journey…..

It has been a long year and it isn't over yet. I've been on quite a journey and though it isn't finished I am nearly at a place where I can start sharing where I have been. I have had my fair share of ups and downs; but it has been worth it. As I've …

“The voice of silence”

A friend gave me this book as a gift. Oonagh, the author was about the same age as one of my Grannies, also born in Co. Leitrim, Ireland.  How very different their lives were! I liked the writing style of the book but I did feel, when reading, it glossed over some delicate issues. Now …

I hear something……

My dogs teach me a lot about patience. During the currently enforced period of relaxation I have had to learn how to let time pass. I have noticed how much I spent doing things and not enough spent noticing. I have created a SoundCloud account and posted some of my recordings. I would value feedback. Do contact me and …
