World's best job is mammy's – says my little one

World's best job is mammy's – says my little one
“Mammy you have the best job in the world,” my five year old son exclaimed proudly as I tip-tapped feverishly on my laptop at poolside during our recent 'business' trip to the Phoenix, Arizona.

By the time I get to Phoenix – we’ll be smiling
The excitement is reaching fever pitch in our house as we gear up for a family trip to Arizona. I’m hopeful that by the time we get to Phoenix we’re all still smiling – well perhaps more anxious than hopeful.  My anxiety at the prospect of enduring an eleven hour flight with the kids has already lost me a few hours of sleep.

It’s more of an acknowledgment that eating just a little of the things I know are less than healthy won't do me any harm every once in a while. Sometimes l...

How to beat the January blues forever

How to beat the January blues forever
Many of us simply accept the sinking feeling of post-holiday distress but why should we and how do we set about banishing it once and for all. I know very well that sense of dread.
