You’llYou might never need them but I always have them in the press. Most of these I was totally unaware of when I had Ned and learned the usual way from other mums recommending them or running to the chemist and asking the pharmacist for advice. I put together a hamper for my best friend when she had her first baby in July and all these tinctures made an appearance. Some are not suitable until three months old and some are just for emergencies and some I still use daily with Ned in toddlerhood.
Mome is a collection of positive affirmation cards designed for men, woman and children alike. They are beautifully designed by a wonderful graphic designer Niamh McMahon. A proud Limerick woman like myself. This lady really has her finger on the pulse knowing what is quickly becoming a priority in every modern household! Positive thinking and mindfulness are on the tip of everyone’s tongue and something we all strive to incorporate more of into our lives every day.
This is for the Mamas who inspired, encouraged Ned helped me through my first year of motherhood. To my amazing friends and family both physical and virtual! Mother’s Day seems a most appropriate a time to publish this. This is not a blissful blog about how my heart has never felt so full of love and how every burp my baby makes my life seem worth while.

This recipe is exactly what it says on the tin, a good old fashioned pancake recipe. It’s not dairy free or gluten free or low fat or made with wholewheat or spelt or bananas! It’s just a simple pancake recipe like the ones we grew up with.

But sure enough,for each parent, life will never be the same again! It’s not just your life a baby changes or you as a person they change, it’s those unsuspecting on lookers too. Those closest to you, congratulating you and screaming in excitement, they haven’t even realised that this little baby will change them too. Continue reading
New Year, New you….hmm? Bah humbug to that! What’s wrong with the old me!
What did I do so wrong in 2016 that I’ve to change? We all survived didn’t we? Maybe a little greyer and little rounder perhaps. We’re in Ireland… a little hibernation fat is essential! Continue reading
My dad started keeping hens this year, to our delight. Four hens, I named them the Kardashians; Kris, Kim, Khloe and Kourtney. The difference between the shop bought and his is nothing less than shocking! We are now cursed with a high standard for eggs. The bar is set, they’re eggcellent! Not a hope I’d make it through without an egg pun. I’m not even sorry!
