Profile Information

About Me:
I work in the Fashion Business at Harris Agencies here in Ireland and spend half my life dressed up and going to smart parties, the other half is more fun and involves hill walking and enjoying the outdoors as well as cooking, baking and blogging. I'm also involved in some charitable work for the Children's Brain Injury Unit in the National Rehabilitation Hospital where my youngest daughter spent nine months following a car accident in Vancouver in 2007. I have three daughters. My Eldest is a Music Therapist who works with children and adults. She is a gorgeous singer and Oboe player too. My middle daughter is a Montessori teacher and nanny who is going to China soon for a year to work there and my youngest daughter (my baby) is in her final year in High SchooI. I have had Dogs all my life and at the moment have a Maltese Terrier who is the smartest dog I've ever had. I'm expecting our first Doodle in the next few months who is coming from Scotland. I know the breed well as my sister in Vancouver who I visit quite often has a gorgeous apricot boy, Koby. I have been on DK while waiting for Riley to be conceived, born and finally to come home.
What Type of Doodle(s) do you have? What are their names? Tell us about your doodle(s) or any other pets you have!
Riley, born April17th In Scotland. He is an Australian 5th generation Chocolate Fleece Coat Labradoodle and we love him to bits. We added a Goldendoodle, Boris to our family in November 2012 so we are now a two doodle family We also have Snowy a 4 year old Maltese Terrier who spends a lot of time with his BF Mojo my daughters Long Haired Mini Dachsund.
Where did you get your doodle(s)?
Why did you choose a doodle rather than another breed or mix?
My first dog as a child and my best childhood friend was a lab/poodle cross. My sister has one that we all adore and the non official breed has some appeal of it's own. I love their natures and above all their gorgeous heads (especially their noses) and shaggy coats.
What are Your Favorite Things to Do With Your Doodles?
Go on car rides with the boys and take them for long walks are my favorite things. Waking up to both of them on my bed, usually one on top and one right beside with his head on my pillow has to be a great start to each day. I love watching them when they go in to day care and the greeting I get when i collect them each time.
Does your doodle(s) shed?
Who grooms your doodle(s)?
I will be doing all the grooming myself, that's what I'm saying for now!!!
Favorite Doodle Products?
Boomerang Tag/Crate/Home made liver treats,antlers,bully sticks
Orijen and Acana dog food. Strong poop bags, crates.

A true tale from many years ago...(when I was five).

Posted on November 21, 2013 at 9:30am 26 Comments


‘Mrs O’Connor is using that dam hairdryer again’ said my mother as the black and white TV looked like a snow storm yet again. Mrs O’Connor had one of those dryers that involved her sitting with a cap over her hair with a tube attached to a machine and as she was our next door neighbor was routinely blamed every time the TV set had major interrupted service.  Grandpa called for a lemon tea and three lumps of sugar which I was too young to make but was…


The Gathering

Posted on July 27, 2013 at 11:02am 16 Comments

I have been MIA for the last while because life has been very very busy here. The Irish Jewish community is very small but what it lacks in numbers it punches way above it's weight in actions and deeds. At it's height we had 5,000 members and now it's about 1500. We have had several Lord Mayors, Government Ministers, etc and have always figured highly in Irish public life.  Lots of the community over the years  left these shores like the rest of the Irish and can now be found in the USA,…


The boys went MIA today.

Posted on June 21, 2013 at 12:42pm 23 Comments

This morning I was working from home.  I often do this on a Friday, I use the time to catch up on emails and calls and it's relaxing to know that I don't have to drive anywhere. The weather here has been mild so I had the back door to the garden open for the boys to wonder in and out. So far so good.... Feral cats are the bane of my life and the elderly neighbour to my right has a shed up against our wall where she leaves food for them so they perch on top of the shed and look down at the…


Just wanted to Kvell

Posted on May 26, 2013 at 3:30am 21 Comments

Kvell in Yiddish means to boast in a proud way. I do it whenever one of my children accomplishes something that I think is particularly noteworthy.  Jessica, my eldest musician daughter wrote and performed her own song at a charity concert the other night.( I had to add it as a link to my blog as I couldn't embed the original recording ) …

Thanks, Nicky.  We got to dog sit him today and taught him how to go through the dog door.  He slaps the door with both paws - it is too funny!

Nicky, thanks for your sweet comment on my page.  We see the Vet this afternoon, so I'll know more after that visit.  He does seem to be doing better.

At 5:28pm on March 19, 2014, BG and Gavin said…

Very happy to hear this positive update.  You got things corrected so early, I can't help it believe that you have every reason to expect that he lives a long and pain free, happy life.  Hugs to all :)

Hi Nicky, just thinking of you and wondering how sweet Boris is doing these days.

At 5:19pm on December 30, 2013, Sherri, Sophie, Winston, & Kitty said…

OMG Nicky, how did I miss that?? I'm so sorry to hear about poor sweet Boris. I hope his wounds heal quickly. That is sad that he won't be able to run off leash too much. At least he has you to love and cherish him, which is awesome enough for most dogs.  Hang in there, I hope the next few weeks go by quickly and painlessly for both of you! My mom has inflammatory osteoarthritis now, I saw her at Chritsmas and it isn't pretty. I hope he doesn't get it.

Oh BTW... I do have Argo signed up for classes already, lol :D

At 3:04pm on December 26, 2013, Jenny, Aidan & Argo said…

Thank you for the information!! I will check them all out and that pet ins!! I have heard of pet ins but don't know anything about it or how much it cost, I will check it out for sure though. I hope your Boris is doing well!

Nicky, last night Spud was such a happy jerk. A true, bad puppy.  You could see the joy and read his mind. He was so glad to be back among us.  Thank you for asking. The lump is still there. Darn.  They said, wait a few more months.

Have fun in Key West.  Really a nothing place, just history. It is an island, 3 miles by 3 miles. Nothing Fancy. I was there when the cruise ships would stop for the day. Really, nothing to visualize, it is an atmosphere.  Everyone has been to this very tiny place.  Maybe it has a Happy Aura?  Dont ask me. I dont get it. But I loved it too  and had the time of my life doing NOTHING   :)

Stop in Captain Tony's for Roger and Me.  A old old pub that reeks of the famous.

There are dozens of bar stools with names of those who sat there. Here is Roger's butt on one stool and mine on the next. We have too many of these

Me at the bar. NO, I did not leave my bar here.  I dont think I took one on vacation.  I dont believe they wear shoes or bras on this island. 

Jimmy Buffett the singer, got his start here and most of his songs are about living here.
