• Oh I feel for you. I think I know how you feel. We had 3 lovely children and a happy marriage but I felt like something was missing and I really wanted another baby. My Mam thought I was mad to even think about having another baby but my womb felt like it was literally aching with the want for baby number 4. My husband was happy with 3 and we were…[Read more]

  • I’ll be honest, I was SO looking forward to the Sex & The City reboot but I’m quite disappointed by it. Carrie has a completely different personality, Miranda was a borderline alcoholic one minute and then fully sober the next. She was happily married at the start of the season and midway through she may or may not be gay or bisexual. Its all over…[Read more]

    Happy New Year everyone….lets hope 2022 will be better than the last 2 years. How has your year been so far? I am really hoping this year will be better than last. We had a rough year in 2021, we lost my Mother-in-law and my Nanny. But we’ve managed to avoid Covid so that’s good.

    Have you made any New Years resolutions?? I don’t think I’ll…[Read more]

  • Please complain about this article by Owen Slot to encouraging Ireland to recall Paddy Jackson to the Irish Rugby team. It was printed 3 days after #AislingMurphy was murdered. Paddy Jackson may have been acquitted of rape but the WhatsApp messages he and his friends shared about what they did to that woman, show his true…[Read more]

    Like women all over Ireland, I am very shocked and upset about the random attack and murder of Aisling Murphy in Tullamore yesterday.

    Shewas a woman who was doing nothing wrong. It was not up to her to constantly check around her to see if anyone was behaving suspiciously. It was the middle of the day and she was running in a public place. It is…[Read more]

  • So this was an interesting book for me to pick up. Its not my usual kind of book, I normally for psychological thrillers but I wanted to read something with an emotional punch and this sure does that! Alex has a wonderful life and everything is going exactly as she wants but then she receives a life changing diagnosis and everything changes. What…[Read more]

  • Oh I really enjoyed this book! It’s written so well. You just don’t know who is good or who is bad or if its that simple. The girl in question is really well written and the parents and community and other drawn into the drama, are believable and compelling. Had me hooked!! If you like tense, twisty, thrillers, this is a book for you!

    A litte…[Read more]

  • Our daughter is so worried and scared that she might pick up Covid, now that she is back in school. There are a few kids in her school out with Covid – so far, there are 2 confirmed cases – but all the close contacts for those kids are being tested this week and this may result in more positive cases. She has a snuffly nose bit of a sore throat at…[Read more]

  • It’s a bit hard to get stuff at the moment from local shops because so many shops have been hit hard by covid. we were doing a raffle for a local woman with cancer and found it bit difficult to get much stuff. have you tried local shops in your area? like dunnes, dealz, tesco etc in the blanchardstown centre? maybe they could help you?

    some of…[Read more]

  • Its normal – weird but normal!! happened to me on all my babies. the good thing though is the hair always grew back!!!

  • Did you know that when you buy from ONeills the money doesn’t stay in Ireland? I don’t know why so many schools are making parents buy school kits from non-Irish companies. For that matter….why is the GAA making us all buy stuff from a company that keeps the profits outside Ireland. Aren’t we all supposed to be buying Irish these days???

  • Self harming is apparently rampant in schools. its worrying that so many girls do this and it seems to normalise it somewhat. Our girls play sports and it definitely helps get their angst out. So often they say they want to quit but we don’t let them. Yeah, it may seem mean but exercise really really helps their moods and overall health, so I am…[Read more]

  • Oh janey…..I think I may be losing my marbles! My periods are all over the place….sometimes its 5 weeks apart but the last few times, only 3 weeks apart. Have had a couple of nights where I was roasting and I wondered, if it was a kind of a hot flush!

    anyone else having peri-menopausal symptoms???

    Hi Efioa – I am a Mammy of 4 in Meath. 3 teenagers and my gorgeous little daughter, who still hugs me as the teens definitely don’t!! Where are you? how many little ones have you got?

    I could buy SO much with €200 in Penneys!!!

  • So, my doctor has told me I am peri-menopausal and I feel really weirdly ashamed about it. I am only 45, so I guess I thought menopause was still a long way off and its thrown me off kilter.

    In Feb I had 2 periods, March had none and not sure if I’ll get one in April. Its funny because as much as periods are a pain, literally at times, its kind…[Read more]

  • I am so sorry girls for both of you and your families too. Its really upsetting to lose a baby. I am not sure if this will help but when I had a miscarriage, I wrote a diary for a few months afterwards, I wrote about how I felt every day and because it was just for me, I was totally honest about the despair I felt. I was a good outlet for my anger…[Read more]

  • Still going through this bloody nightmare situation, there seems to be no end in sight!!!

    I was asked to go see the other sides doctor – in the same suite as the last doctor, at Blackrock Clinic. I initially said no, I did not want to go anywhere near a hospital during Covid and also, why did I have to go see another one of their doctors. I…[Read more]

  • So, here we are back at high levels of restrictions again and I am trying not to worry, but some days I manage that better than others. Today I just felt like crying about it all. My children had been in close contact with a positive case 2 weeks ago and have all been kept home from school since to make sure they didn’t get it. They were all…[Read more]

  • Our daughters have cabin beds that we got from Love Furniture years ago and they are still in tip top shape! They can do homework on them. they have play area underneath to put their toys, they have a bookcase and a chest of drawers, all within the bed. Definitely recommend these, they are such good space savers!
