Happy Ten Years and a Happy "Hygge" Christmas

Happy Ten Years and a Happy "Hygge" Christmas

So, I’ve settled down to write my last Blog of the year.  The Christmas tree lights are twinkling beside me, the candles that I lit on the table in front of me are flickering and warming my heart and room and I am listening to the Cinematic Orchestra “To Build A...

The Imprint of a Father

Une Bulle de Bonheure

I found a blog yesterday with the exact title above that I had written three years ago but that I had never posted.  It had been inspired by my then four year old son, Fian, who had carried a soap bubble from the bathroom, where he had been washing his hands, into our...
The Grass Beneath Your Feet

The Grass Beneath Your Feet

Last night (24th June 2015), just before going up the stairs to bed, my husband Phil, read out loud to me the post that Clodagh Cogley, Irish survivor of the Berkeley Balcony collapse, had placed on Facebook.  It had gone viral and no wonder! In case you missed...
