I’ve been smiling all week at the gorgeous photo by Patrick Bolger of the little baby gorilla in its mother’s arms after being born in Dublin Zoo – Rosie

Seeing my grand-daughter Aoibhin’s rugby club, Mullingar, win the U/16 League Final, last week. Such excitement! – Sally

My son’s innocent and complete joy at just having blown his first bubble with bubble gum – Sharon

My son’s greeting to me after I’d come home on Friday evening. James had been in Temple Street hospital for the whole week before and it was just wonderful to see him so well and so happy and independent again – and so delighted to see me – Jennifer
