Epic Fail

Back to school 2012 will be forever etched on my memory. Before I start my sorry tale I have to say, I am a good Mum. I am, really! I am patient, understanding and kind, ok I’m patient, understanding and kind most of the time. I cook lovely nutritious food for my off spring, I bake tasty goodies and when we’re out and about I keep them in my line of vision most of the time. […]

Summer is at an end.

Back to school tomorrow, end of the lazy days of summer. I’m not one of those mums who has been waiting for school to reopen since it closed in June. I love the freedom that the summer holidays bring. I also love the peace and tranquillity that is restored to my home for the too few summer months. I have two very different children. One who loves the hustle and bustle of being immersed in […]

Knickers to that!

My sister commented recently that she wished her childhood had been as colourful  as mine. It made me think. I remember growing up wishing I was as cool and popular as my older sister. Raised in the same house by the same parents we managed to grow into two very different people each with their own depiction of exactly how certain events unfolded. I often sit and watch my two tiny terrors and marvel at […]

Is that you Mary?

I recently got my hair cut short.  I’ve had a bob for as long as my two children can remember. One day I woke and just wanted a change. I warned the family that I was getting it all chopped off. Reactions varied from, ‘that’s grand’ to ‘what? no why!’ When I arrived home the reaction was fantastic. Everyone loved mum’s new hair. There was lots of uh’s and ah’s and as I stood there […]

The surprises a new day can bring.

Life is full of surprises. Some good and some not so good but it is in dealing with the unexpected that we learn about ourselves and about others. This  August has been full of surprises for me and my family and we’re only nine days. My laptop has been destroyed and no longer works properly. It had a pint of beer spilled all over it, by accident of course. It could have been worse, I […]

Stay at home mums unambitious. Says who?

So according to Yahoo! Lifestyle Cherie Blair thinks mums who stay at home and raise their children are unambitious and that the experience will impact negatively on the kids, resulting in them being dependent (http://uk.lifestyle.yahoo.com/cherie-blair-criticises-slams-full-time-stay-at-home-mums.html). The successful QC, mum of four and wife of former British PM Tony Blair revealed her concerns at Fortune Magazine’s Most Powerful Women Event. The article I refer to goes on to suggest that some young women aim to marry […]

I’m not proud…………..

Watching my two beautiful children grow and develop into independent little people is an absolutely fascinating pastime. I am forever being jolted back in time and left standing listening and looking at myself when I was their age. It can just be a phrase or a look and I am  instantly back in the 80s, roller skating down the hill in Kilcarn Court at a hundred miles an hour with no cares or worries. I […]

I hate football, really I do………..

To say I’m not into sport is a huge understatement. While I always liked the uniform that went with the sport, it was the effort that had to be exerted, the sweat that was worked up and the fact that you could get hurt that didn’t appeal to me. My sister on the other hand was brilliant at whatever sport she turned her hand to, well almost all. She had a bit of an issue […]

To Mammy Byrne

Life is strange and we never ever know what joys or sorrows tomorrow may bring. The 14th of June 1969 saw Mary Ryan and Brian Byrne become husband and wife. They set forth full of hope and optimism for a bright future full of joy and laughter secure in the knowledge that once they had each other they could face any difficulty that came their way. By 1974 two extremely cute little girls had arrived […]

All things being equal!

Isn’t it strange how conversations you have with your kids can transport you back in time? A couple of weeks ago my daughter and I headed off for a girlie day out. As is usually the norm in our car the radio was turned on and we settled back to enjoy the drive. After a short silence she began to tell me about school. She told how the teachers have favourites. Kids who happen to […]
