preparing for women's marathon
Article

The VHI Women's Mini-Marathon is on the June bank holiday this year in Dublin. For the first time in my life I will be walking it. The fact I'm doing so is a huge achievement, brought about by my persistence, my husband's support, my friend's undying belief that I wasn't as sick as some others wanted me to believe. We plotted a way through the negativity and thanks to the help of my talented physiotherapist we are aiming for me to be fit enough to complete the marathon in less than 2 hours.

Another Mother's Day dawns today. For the last couple of weeks I had promised, swore to, myself that I'd avoid the internet like the plague today. Before two weeks ago though my plan from last year was to have a gorgeous blog post all about the 'Irish Mammies' and celebrate the day in a flourish of happiness. As those of you who know me are aware I lost a child in 2000 through miscarriage and last November I found out my mother had left us all. 

International Women's Day 2018
Article
Behind this woman here is a strong man. I wouldn’t be who I am without the love & support of one of the most courageous men in the world. 

It’s easy to knock men these days, not all are bad. Without the love of my life I wouldn’t be here to celebrate International Women’s Day 2018. 

When I lost my kidneys in my 20s my so-called women friends didn’t want to know. I no longer fitted in. 

Recipe
Ideal as a mid-afternoon snack for two or as a lunch for one served on toasted sourdough with pea shoots.
Recipe
It's Pancake Time otherwise known as Shrove Tuesday. I've revamped an old pancake recipe. Also, instead of using my usual berries and nut butter I've used red grapes, coconut cream and a toffee sauce (maple syrup) is a delicious alternative to the toffee sauce.
