Eily’s Report – 20th April

Dia is Mhuire díobh go léir a chairde, and welcome to my weekly report.

The weather is pleasant and there is a good feeling  in the air.

The vice-like grip of Covid19 is beginning to loosen a little and we are only waiting for the moment when it’s shackles can be put away for good. The people at the top who have herded us for the past year and a half must be feeling that it was all worthwhile. No doubt they came in for a lot of slack, and when you think of it their task was enormous, almost impossible. It was their job to put a stop to a world gone mad. We had reached heights that surpassed anything the world had ever seen before and yet were we happy. No not really. There was pressure on everybody to be even  better, the less well-off spent all their time trying to catch up with the  ones who got rich quick. In spite of all the affluence, we still had poor people but their plight could hardy be seen. There was no-one to say, stop you have enough. A rise in pay or status, meant that you had to have a bigger and better house, a more expensive car yet another foreign holiday every year, all of which landed you down even worse off than you were before getting that well paid career which was going to tick all your boxes. The humble wage-earner was better off in the end because every penny had to be watched ,big expenses had to be avoided and the simple life turned out to be the right one after all.

Eily’s Report – 13th April

Dia is Mhuire díobh go léir a chairde, and welcome to my weekly report.

Apologies for my absence last week. My laptop decided that it needed a little attention and don’t we all from time to time. Lucky for us that we have an expert in the town who makes short work of our modern day elect problems. His premises at the Bridge is the place to go for repairs, for parts or to buy a new appliance as well as much more.

It’s hard not to get excited, the very mention of freedom get minds into overdrive following all the months of Lockdown and regulations. Monday morning of this week dawned bright and sunny just the kind of weather to put everybody in a good mood add to that the euphoria of little children as they return to school for the first time in a very long time. Some since Christmas. Home schooling did a wonderful job, Teachers and pupils have to be commended for the way they kept the lid on things. Children in the main never like going to school but covid19 has changed all that. They never thought they’d miss their friends and indeed their teachers so much. The importance of routine, interaction  and discipline came home to them when they were apart from it And now that the long wait is over, we have to offer them God’s Blessing and all the good luck in the world that their young lives will be free from disruption from now on.  No doubt the lessons learned in covid19 will live with them for the rest of their lives.

That’s Life Education

Introducing That’s Life Education

That’s Life Education is a Parent and School based support programme. It is intended for educators and parents of young adolescents. It will be presented in the context of factual and age appropriate information on development of the preteen/teen, physical and emotional, friendship and relationship with others. There will be two main aspect to this programme:

Parent/Preteen sessions due to the changing circumstances in the country with the Coronavirus 19 and not being able to have our parent/preteen sessions That’s Life Education programme now focuses on how best to support a parent(s) and be with them and their child (in a virtual way) and work together in partnership to explain the ongoing process of development in their now preteen child. Book a session with Nurse Maggie to guide you, the parent in giving correct factual information on the more sensitive aspects of puberty. In this way, children will learn the necessary skills and develop attitudes to promote caring and respectful relationships with themselves and others throughout life.

Secondly, That’s Life Education focuses on Schools, already well established with school visits throughout the country, both in Primary and Post primary schools for many years.

That’s Life Education is pleased to announce that since September 2020 we can now offer all our school programmes either face to face with school visits or online (via secure webinar) for schools that are beyond my boundary. Since the outbreak of the Coronavirus 19, we have moved our educational content online via a secure online platform of zoom. And if I am able to visit school’s health and safety is of paramount concern to That’s Life and all visits will be in accordance with Government restrictions and public health guidelines.

Eily’s Report – 30th March

Dia is Mhuire díobh go léir a chairde, and welcome to my weekly report.

This is Holy Week, the clocks are gone one hour ahead and I got my second Jab last Thursday. Lots of new developments to take in, in one week. But changes keep us on the alert and that’s a good thing at any time, moreover in these historic times. I know a few people who didn’t even realise that the clocks had changed and anyway what difference did it make. An hour up or down doesn’t really matter when you have no important engagements  to meet. Mass would be the most important one but if you miss it in our own church,  the  flick of a button will have you attending your weekly obligations in  places as far apart as Boherbue or the Vatican. Those who are fortunate to be working or have children going to school would want to be in the know about the change of time, obviously.

Eily’s Report – 23rd March

Dia is Mhuire díobh go léir a chairde, and welcome to my weekly report.

This week I have to admit that I befriended the crow. I took pity on him,  (so few  people do)  I told myself that he has to have a life that he too wants to meet a partner, build a nest and rear a family as his forebears have been doing since time began. I like to give my spare food to the birds ,one crow waits on the wire and when I throw it out he will call all the others. They come in droves and in no time the place is picked clean. One fellow seemed a bit different from the others I don’t know why  but for the past number of days he had been hovering around a little lady crow. As the days went on they seemed to distance themselves from the main flock. At times he would do a little dance around her with one wing fanned out along the ground as he uttered some crow sounds. Just like you’d see on a David Attenborough program. Alas she often pretended she didn’t know he was there and she would eat her fill and wing it off to the next feeding ground over the hedge. But they must have reached an agreement because he was busy in my garden since then collecting dry matter to build his home in the rookery at the far off side of the valley. I couldn’t believe how far he had to go with his overpacked beak of his building material. ‘t’would  be over half a mile around the road but not to him, he took the route as the crow flies. They still come for my scraps, steal some of my birdseed and some day I imagine they will be back with a flock of their own to clean up my lawn.
