Planner Review – Episode 1.

Planner Review – Episode 1. As I said in the last post, choosing a planner is a big deal. They can be pretty expensive, so you need to know you’ll use it.  My first planner was in 1990, just as the Yuppy period was coming to an end I finally saved enough to buy a […]

Back to school means..

Back to school means…. Okay, it means the kids go back to school. But, what about all the things that go with that? like new school bags, new notebooks, new folders and my all time favourite new pencil cases! It also means new starts to me,like a new years day all over again. No matter […]

Summer Holidays.

Summer Holidays Last week Tim & I took off on our summer holiday to France. We flew from Cork to Carcassone with Ryanair, the flight is only an hour and forty five minutes. Pre- booking your seats costs a few extra euro, but to me, not doing it would ruin my holiday. That may sound […]

Sugar Free Flapjacks.

Sugar free flapjacks. We are all more aware of the sugar we eat these days. Not just in the form of sweets and chocolate but the hidden sugars that seem to be absolutely everything! There are loads of fabulous cookbooks full of healthy living recipes, Deliciously Ella, Fearne Cotton, and Davina are some of my favourites. Now, […]

The Joys of getting Older.

The joys of getting older.   When I write my odd ramblings on this blog I don’t really consider who might read it. I used to, and do you know what? It really held me back because I worried about what those people might think. That sentence has a lot to answer for. (source) I hadn’t […]

Rainy days and Sundays.

Rainy Days and Sundays. Good afternoon from a wet and windy County Kerry. Before you say it, I know the title of the song was Rainy days and Mondays, but i’m using artistic licence here! So, as I was saying it is wet and windy.Yesterday I took the dogs to the Copper Mines at Ross […]

Home is the Nicest Word.

Home is the Nicest Word. According to the dictionary it means, ‘House or other dwelling’. To me it means love, family, comfort, safety, coziness. I am a home bird. My favourite place to be is home. Going on holiday is fabulous, but the day we’re returning i’m frantic to get back . It’s where my […]

Quirky? Me? Surely Not!

Quirky? Me? Surely Not! I do like a bit of quirky. Quirky fashion sense, yes.  Quirky home decor ? (there are big polka dots painted on the kitchen walls) so yes. Quirky books… LOVE!!!! I belong to a book club, we have been meeting for eleven years now so we have read a huge amount […]

Knit one, Purl one.

Knit one, Purl one.. Do you knit? Do you like cosy fires and winter days and knitting away the winter? In theory so do I, but for some reason whenever I get bitten by the knitting bug its summer time. You could argue the summer part, officially its Autumn, but the days are still fairly […]

Ten Things you don’t know about Me.

Ten things you don’t know about me.. Maybe you don’t want to know them, but I’m gonna tell you anyway!! Since this is a fairly new WordPress blog, and since I’m actually Tweeting a bit these days I have a few new ‘Followers’. How pretentious does that sound? You have to understand, I like meeting […]
