Sometimes a girl just needs some sunshine

AFTER being teased by the rare flush of winter sun on our faces on Monday, we reverted to type yesterday with hammering rains and strong winds.

The winter has been so wet and miserable that everyone is singing the same sad song. We’re sick of the weather and all we can do is think ahead to the summer holidays, or dare I say it, a late winter break.

I’ll happily admit I snuck away recently for a week to the Canaries and it was bliss! 22 degrees – I was miserable coming home. The only thing keeping me going was the thought of another getaway for the summer, all things going well.

With that in mind, I’ll certainly be going along to the Fly Shannon Holiday Show at the UL Arena, which runs either on Saturday or Sunday. I’m told that there’ll be free holidays, discounted holidays and all the best advice on holidays. And even if I don’t get to the sun this summer, I’ll still pop along as it will be a bit of winter escapism.

Speaking of Shannon, we probably take it for granted but it’s the most hassle free airport I’ve travelled from and we have it on our doorstep. I just love it and am quite proud of it. So my advice this week is get along to the Fly Shannon Holiday Show and my ask this week is - Fly Shannon!
