    • Things I Learned Saturday August 26, 2014
      On Saturday I was in Dublin for my sister Martha’s 30th Birthday celebrations. Aside from great company, lots of laughs, food, music and dancing at The Clarendon and Odessa here’s a few random things happened, discovered or learned… 1. I can’t go out anymore, it takes days to recover, days, such a time waste. I […]

    • Feed a Family of Five, One Week, Fifty Euro. August 18, 2014
      I have a passion for food and I’m lucky, we’ve always had a great relationship. I use it to to care for and nourish, to spoil and make well, to show love and friendship, to make sigh and satisfy, to make every day special. Food has given me so much, even a way to be […]

    • Anyone for a ‘Salon’ Gathering ? August 4, 2014
      I really badly want to go to a ‘salon’, unusual thought for a Monday perhaps but I’ve been thinking about it a few years now. I realise I may have to host though I’d much rather attend. Since first I read the book ‘Wild Irish Women’ by Marian Broderick, this tantalising passage about Lady Jane […]

    • Openness August 1, 2014
      Hello and welcome August 1st, the Gaelic Harvest Festival of Lughnasa. I’ve been meaning for some time to share a few thoughts on openness, the opposite of secrecy, a release of ego, honesty, acceptance of experience. It’s always been my nature to be open and I’ve always been that way with those close to me […]

    • What do you want to do? July 31, 2014
      Good morning dear friends. It’s the 31st of July and there’s already a change, have you felt it? The nights are drawing in, the flowers have gone to sleep, even the air is different, autumn. These past few days have been dark and grey so I decided to rejig our sitting room because, well, that’s […]

    • What would you say to your younger self? July 30, 2014
      I keep seeing this question everywhere so I thought I’d give it a go and scribbled down a few pointers last night. I imagined myself about six, one year into school life. The world will adapt. Your’re right, being older will be better for you. There’s nothing wrong with being sensitive. Something like 15 to […]

    • This is War (a food post) July 29, 2014
      I haven’t talked about food in a while but it’s never far from my mind. I’ve talked in the past about my research into nutrition for parkinson’s and cancer treatment and prevention (my Dad had cancer/has parkinson’s) and how we’ve adapted our shopping and eating habits, within means and reason. The challenge of feeding anyone, […]

    • A Little Rain Never Hurt Anyone July 22, 2014
      There’s the great lesson when your’re Irish that you can’t wait for good weather. It’s possible the sun will shine and you hope it will, but you don’t wait, you live as if the sun were shining. This is why you will see Irish people sitting outside in storms, at the beach in the rain, […]
