Re-reading The Shell Seekers by Rosamunde Pilcher and enjoying it every bit as much again. Brings back nice memories of reading it on holidays in Kerry. The author died recently - Geraldine

The ancestry DNA that says my family is 67.9% Irish/British whatever that means - Sabrina

Couldn’t be happier today in our new premises which is open after 30 years we only moved two doors up on Tara Street. Call in with your shoes and keys - @TaraLeathersDublin

Waking up this morning, it’s pouring rain and gloomy outside but @conorcrowley78 gives me lift into town and I get a flat white before work it’s the little things - Aoibhín

A deep and certain feeling that Brexit is not going to happen and that we can move on from this nightmare eventually - Robert
