May Day, May Day!

I cannot believe that Daragh has almost finished his first year in College. The year literally flew. It’s all almost over now bar the exams. I hope he gets through them ok. It’s always a worry but sure we are Mammy’s and always worry. He won’t be around for long though as he is away to America for the Summer. He was offered a job in a professional Golf & Tennis Club teaching kids for the Summer. I am delighted for him but very anxious at the same time. It’s a great experience there’s no doubt about it but it’s also his first time to travel abroad without me. Now he has no problem with that happy out he is… me however. I will have Mam on multiple novenas to make sure he stays safe. Least all the tennis lessons I paid for over the years have paid off girls. Sure it might be a good excuse to travel over to see him although I am not quite sure he will want his Mammy showing up…
I am off to Lisbon this month with Chris. I am so excited I genuinely am. We were due to go last year but I wouldn’t leave Beethoven so we delayed it. I have heard such great reports on Lisbon from so many of you. I like the idea of beach time and City and that’s why we chose to go there. Chris no doubt will have a fully planned itinerary and 20,000 steps will be achieved as we visit every monument in the City. In June I am off with Chris, my brother and his family so I will be telling you all about my travels. It’s so exciting to be able to more or less travel again with no restrictions. It makes the whole process so much easier and traveling is one of my true loves. Walking around new Cities, is there anything nicer really?
Murph is getting so big… you would need eyes in the back of your head with him. If anything is left on the floor he will eat it. I mean anything now and he will give it a go. You couldn’t leave him on his own because you might not have a thing left in the house. Nothing escapes him girls and I mean nothing. He’s brilliant though and brings great fun to the house. He is full of personality and divilement. The training didn’t go quite according to plan. The cage is gone and he is up in the bed with us, what are we like.. I just didn’t have the heart to keep him in there when the big eyes were looking out at me. A softee and he knows it. They are so clever aren’t they? such good fun though. The doggie day care that we found is just amazing and they do overnights as well which is great. You know how difficult it can be to get somebody to take a dog overnight but we struck gold.
You may have noticed that we have introduced some new brands to the site over the past few months. It is great to bring you all some new products that I have found and love. It is also great that again they are Irish brands. You know how passionate I am about supporting Irish business. We have such amazing brands in this small Island and I am so happy that I can support them and help them grow.
What’s New for May?
