Can you believe it I’m here emailing notes this beautiful Monday evening to our newsletter after a lovely bright day, and thinking this time last year we were still wishing everyone a Happy Easter with our Easter ceremonies being celebrated to an empty church again this year. However let’s not dwell on the Negatives, there is enough negativity in the world Positivity – is the name of the game. If you can get out of bed in the morning, have enough food in your fridge, a roof over your head and a bit of laughter and kindness in your life, you can count YOUR BLESSINGS. Anyway wishing all readers of the newsletter a very Happy Easter and here’s to next Easter — Covid free.

I have heard it all  you can buy Virtual Clothes and Trainers now and show them off to your friends on Facebook etc. You pay so much and it improves your image or so they say. I’d rather go into a shop and buy a pair if needed, rather than pretending I had a pair of designer trainers costing hundreds  — what next I say !.

The other day I heard on the radio that there was a waiting list in Dublin for a certain type of a sandwich costing  90 Euro, you would buy a fair amount of sliced pans and make your own for that much . I suppose you have those people who like to boast that they paid that much for a sandwich—not me however.


May God bless you at Easter,

And keep you all year through.

May God give you all the faith it takes

To make your dreams come true.

May his love and wisdom always help,

To guide you on your way.

May his light shine down upon you now,

To bless your Easter Day.


Life is what happens when you are busy making other plans.
