What Caught My Eye

What Caught My Eye This Week?

Welcome Sunday, welcome March, welcome Springtime.


Hello March, hello you,
Hello all that’s bright and new
Hello grand stretch, hello bright skies
Hello, nice things seen with bright eyes.


We are living and breathing plastic, of that there is no doubt. This piece, Can I Learn to Live Without Plastic For A Whole Week? is very interesting. Though I don’t agree with the journalist’s evaluation regarding the cost implication of going plastic free and I really wish supermarkets would get serious and eliminate unnecessary plastic.

Imagine owning your own island? This beautiful Deserted 80–acre Irish island with an old monastery off the Galway coast is up for sale. It looks breathtaking.

Is there anything handier than a one pot meal? The Minimalist Baker has a great selection here of 18 One Pot Meals. I am definitely bookmarking this to try some of them.

It was a privilege to have my friend Karen publish this piece on her blog during her celebration of love series. In February 2018, my sister received heart-shattering news. This was my tribute to her and my way of marking a day which will be forever etched on her heart. And I must say thank you to Karen for sharing the piece.

As I read Things Fall Apart: Motherhood is a job worth being paid for I found myself nodding along. As a SAHM myself, I often wonder why more value is not put on the role of the Mother in the home.

Speaking at Ireland’s first ever biodiversity conference this morning, Michael D Higgins told the audience that the timeframe to transform our world to make space for nature is “perilously short”.  

When Sharon publishes her book reviews my to be read pile always seems to increase significantly. She reads such a great range of genres, there really is something for everyone to choose from the books she’s read.

I discovered Mary Reynolds on Instagram and love her feed, it’s nature at it’s finest, in its most natural state. Mary is now taking her love for the living world one step further with We Are The Ark, simply put…Weaving a patchwork of safe havens for Nature globally, in our gardens, schools, public spaces and beyond..
