“A little sand between your toes to take away your woes.” Certainly sums up the fantastic ten days I had in Donegal with my friends and family. Anyone who knows me knows that if I could go anywhere in the world, I would go to Maghery. The must humbly beautiful place. I couldn’t think of […]

To say I am on cloud nine would be an understatement! It’s been another jam-packed, super-busy month for me. I have found it almost impossible to find a moment to sit down and make a start to this month’s blog. I was busy from the word go, spending the first afternoon of my summer holidays […]
