When I look at the way the world is at the moment it can be overwhelming. Racism is something that I just don’t understand, why someone is judged by the colour of their skin is beyond my comprehension. As far as I’m concerned we’re all people, it’s our actions and the way we treat others,… Continue reading Can Books Help to Change the World?
We had a first birthday last week! It marked the end of the fastest year of my life! I cannot believe that our little man is one. And in lockdown too, so not exactly the family tea party or the birthday weekend trip to Dublin Zoo that I’d envisaged. Still, we made the best of… Continue reading First Year Reflections
As a parent one of the things you want to be able to do is to provide for your children. When a crisis, like the current one, happens that can become difficult. Now, I’m very fortunate in that, although my music job is currently on a hiatus with no definite return date as yet, my… Continue reading The Unknown Future of Music
Hi! How are you doing? It has been so long since I last posted because, to be quite honest, I’ve just been so busy; in fact I can’t believe how busy I’ve been without leaving the house!

Rainbows are being displayed in homes across the UK at the moment to spread hope and cheer when people walk past. I've not heard about it happening in Ireland but it could be doing - I haven't… Continue reading Perspective
Happy Mother’s Day to you all! It’s certainly not the Mother’s Day any of us expected it to be with the way the world is. But I just feel so blessed to be celebrating my first Mother’s Day with my little man. The best way I thought I could celebrate this special day was to… Continue reading Happy Mother’s Day!
Hi! How are things going for you today? Like most people, I'm still trying to get my head around what's going on in the world at the moment. It's just like being in a movie that never ends and at the moment there appears to be no end in sight. To be honest, despite trying… Continue reading #Feelgoodweekend
Hi everyone, How are you all doing? This is the oddest situation isn’t it? And I think probably the hardest thing for all of us is not knowing when it’s going to end and what it’s going to entail. The fear of the unknown I suppose. But I think that the two most important things… Continue reading How are you doing?
I’ve seen lots of posts and ideas about how to keep school aged children occupied during the school closures but what happens if, like me, you’re staying at home with a baby who can’t entertain themselves and has no idea what’s going on? And in my case a baby who, unless he is asleep, doesn’t… Continue reading My Top Tips for Being at Home with a Baby During the Covid-19 Pandemic
