Summer time & the livin' is easy

Hello everyone,

A simple post this time, just a few lines to update you on my life. Well, first off is, I have a new little grandson, Liam James. He is adorable and is now a week old. No photos as his parents do not want him on any social media. Another stage in life as I become a Nana. I've always wanted to be a Nana and now that I am, I love it. Imagine the blessing it is to see the next generation arriving, marvellous!!
I am editing my sequel, which I find slower this time than the time I edited my first novel. Why, I've not got a clue but I shall get there.
As regards my newsletter, well, it's been littered with problems for me. So very sorry for those of you who have signed up and are waiting for it. I am working on it, and I have sought expert help. I attended a social media course run by Sandra Quinn of Quinnsquill Munster News. Hopefully it will get sorted as soon as possible.
Ireland is enjoying some wonderful sunshine at present and everywhere is looking gorgeous, gardens are in full bloom and the scent of flowers is all about us.
Ireland's Own magazine
I've had a few memory pieces in an Irish magazine called, Ireland's Own. This magazine is a staple in most Irish homes and I know it is also posted far and wide to other countries where people have family living. I really feel honoured to be included. To keep my mind ticking over storywise while editing, I've entered a couple of short story competitions too.
Kent Family Grave
Also, I have been out and about with writing friends, looking up Irish history, such as a visit to Thomas Kent's grave, in Castlelyons, Co. Cork. Kent came from a noted nationalist family. He was a volunteer waiting for the call up in the 1916 Irish Easter Rising. My companion for that day was writer Mary Angland and as she is also a history teacher, she brought the day to life with her vast knowledge.
To finish off that educational day out, I went to the GPO Experience of the 1916 Easter Rising in Dublin. This is opened all year and gives a wonderful insight to this important part of our Irish history.

That's it for now. Sit back and enjoy the summer. Life is too short not to pay it some attention. Forget the stress if you can and take some timeout to recharge the batteries. Until next time,
happy writing and stay safe.
