May the odds be ever in your favour.

I was looking at the folklore story of the giant Fionn MacCumhaill with my class of eight year olds. Poor Fionn was in an awful dilemma. Despite the fact that he was very handsome
his own words....
he could not find a wife.


I asked my class if they could think of any reason why he couldn't get himself a wife. They all agreed that it was probably because he was a giant and trampled on any woman he was near!
I was going to ask them if they meant physically or metaphorically, but I figured that was a bit too cynical for eight year olds!!

I then asked them
"Lads, if you were looking for a wife, where would you start?"
One hand shot up
"Miss, I'd go to Johnstown House."
  A local hotel.
"Why is that?"
"Because Dad says there must be fifty women to every man there!"

Well you can't argue with those figures!

Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's family.

You don't have to be a Victoria Beckham fan to acknowledge the fact that this woman has to have done something right to have such a gorgeous and seemingly well balanced family.

 I'm including her husband in that statement, him being quite gorgeous too!

Well,well, well.

I headed into Mullingar to attend a seminar on Well being and Life Balance.

We all need help to get the best out of life.

To my surprise/delight, the first speaker was Bressie.
For some unknown reason, I immediately got a warm fuzzy feeling in my stomach and life became a little bit cheerier!
Success.

Look no further......

One of the most dreaded questions that a single woman is regularly asked is
"How come a lovely woman like you is still single?"
Well, maybe because some men didn't see what a good good thing they had, even when I was under their nose!
This prove my point....
