Feis prep

When my girlies were babies  – I nursed them, co-slept, carried them around in slings, restricted their media and all sorts of natural parenting things.  I never, never, in my wildest dreams thought I would be doing things like  oh – buying horses, saddles and paying for dressage lessons OR buying wigs, solo dresses and…

When hubbie is away OR Boring everyday life

When my husband is away on travel – things run a bit differently in our household. Not a bad different or a better different – but just  –  DIFFERENT.  When he’s away – there are only us three ladies in the house. When hubbie is away I spend mornings I spend at the kitchen table…
