I am concerned about my 11 yr old daughter. In the past year she has had 4 Urinary Tract Infections and each time, she has needed an anti biotic. She is a strong, sturdy girl who plays alot of sports and is very active. She has a good diet and drinks alot of water each day.
I am worried about the recurrence of this and the fact she is…[Read more]
When I think of Role Models, I think of Serena Williams. After she was told she couldnt wear the ‘clot preventing’ catsuit she wore at Wimbledon, a few months after giving birth to her daughter, she decided to go down a different style route and rocked up in a Tutu. She is some woman!! #StrongWomen
See her tutu here:…[Read more]
I read that one too and really enjoyed it, Good twisty turney thriller!
If you like a real page turner, pick up ‘He Said/ She said’ Its not what you think it is…..it sounds like its about a incident of assault but actually, its the story of two people who witnessed the assault and how it impacts them.
its such an incredible book. I read it in…[Read more]
My kids drove me so nuts the past few days I actually lost the plot and burst out crying in my car in a car park on Saturday! Do your kids ever drive you that crazy or is it just mine?
I’m not sure if I’m normal or losing the plot. In fairness, they did say sorry and get me some nice flowers which made me feel all happy again. (until they started…[Read more]

It feels like just yesterday the midwife was placing her in my arms. She arrived very quickly on a sunny Saturday afternoon. 3 big pushes and she was out, no waiting around. The midwife lay her on my tummy and – then something incredible happened – she climbed her way up to my breast and started suckling. I will never forget the shock I felt that…[Read more]
Sabbi started the topic Do you do it on your wedding night?? in the forum Weddings, Christenings, Communions, Confirmations etc 1 month, 3 weeks ago
A recent survey has revealed that 53% of couples surveyed said they did not consummate their marriage on their wedding night. Does this figure surprise you?
Did you ‘Get Down to business’ on your Wedding night!??
Would love to know who else did and didn’t manage it.
We just about did…though in fairness, I had spent a fortune on wedding night…[Read more]
My sister and aunt both have slow cookers and swear by them, they say its so convenient to pop the ingredients in to it in the morning before heading out to work and then when you come home, hey presto, dinner’s ready!
Just wondering are they really good and useful for busy mammies? I wanted to get some more feedback from mammies before I buy one…[Read more]

If anyone is under pressure financially with back to school costs (aren’t we all it seems) then you may as well try and get the Back to school clothing and footwear allowance. we recommend some mums to apply last year and they didn’t think they’d be eligible but they were. I think its €100 for a primary school going child and €200 for a sec…[Read more]
Ok, so I am about to lose my mind.
Last year & year before we rented tablets for our son in secondary school, at an annual cost of €150.
But this year, we have been told we need to BUY brand new ipads & covers & internet protection at a cost of €400.97 per child!!! We have 2 children in secondary from this year.
Oh my word….€800 is alot…[Read more]
Our daughter had a nasty fall in playground about an hour ago.
She landed on soft ground but from high up on a spinny climbing thing. She has a big bump on her forehead and was bleeding quite heavily from her nose & mouth. She has a massive bruise forming under her bum too, looks nasty.
Have bathed her and washed all the blood off, so she…[Read more]
A crusty old thicko GAA Steward behaved completely ignorantly towards a woman who doing the most natural thing in the world at the weekend – breastfeeding her baby son.
The woman – after a 3.5h hour car journey had to feed her son and when she sat down in the stadium to do so, she was told she could not do that there and she must move. The…[Read more]
Ok, so this is even hard to write but I think it might help if I actually write it down.
Last week, I was really busy with work and my kids were asking if we could please go to the beach whenever I had the time to take them. I wrapped up a little early on Friday and we headed to our local beach. It was really hot and the beach was quite busy.
Well, my daughter has gotten her first period. She is 13, so its a good age – same as I was. I know some girls are getting them very young nowadays so I am relieved it didn’t happen for her until she was 13.
She’s been a bit moody and cranky and has had some cramps but she’s doing ok. She actually had a match last weekend and she said she didn’t…[Read more]
I am worried about this. My mother had pre cancer cells removed from her Cervix around 28 years ago and my sisters and I were all brought up to be very vigilant about this. But with this situation, its so unfair that women who did look after health were not told about their dangerous cells.
I was due to have my smear test this week but my clinic…[Read more]
