Five Minute Friday – Why


It's a long time since I've done a FMF, but here's goes. Five mins of free writing on the word 'why.' My makeshift bravado sank like a tent without pegs recently when I was sent for a CT scan. It was routine. No one expected anything to come of it. It was just ruling stuff …

Memories, like the corners of my mind


I love the Facebook memories function. I enjoy looking back at them; most of the time they are a good laugh. One day last week, some memories popped up that threw me back to what was a very dark time, and I suddenly realised how far I've come. When we moved back to Ireland in …
