In 1900 my grandfather, James Daly was born in Dublin, 16 years later in fought in Boland's Mill in the 1916 Easter Rising. He spent time in Frongoch but ws quickly released when they found out his age. Last week his daughter, my Aunty Kathleen passed away at the age of 85. I feel a great loss since her death as she was such a one off, they don't make them like Aunty Kathleen anymore!
Born in Kimmage, Dublin, she started her life from humble beginnings, leaving school very young she went to Liverpool to study as a a nurse. A women ahead of her time, she went on to open a very successful nursing home in Dublin. She was a successful business women, mother, aunty and grandmother.
I want to wish my Aunty Kathleen well on her final journey in life and she will always be in my thoughts.

Here, I sit in my attic a week after returning from my holidays in Portugal. I am looking out over the river Liffey and it is grey, windy, cold and threatening rain! Good God, it is miserable!!!
Since my return from holiday I have had a lot of catching up to do, all my orders received through out the holday had to be dispatched. It has been busy! I also employed a new Indian seo company to work on my www.CarlaDaly.co.uk site, I hope to boost my sales to the UK.
A lot of people are asking about my alphabet wall stickers, which have been out of stock for some time now, the reason for this has been a change in the printer who produces them for me. They will be available on my site within the next week. Sorry for the delay!

I wanted to share a blog with you, it is that of my friends Eric and Lisa Ring. They have taken a year off from the dreary Irish weather and the very dreary Irish recession, to travel around the world. They are doing this with their two children Elka and Axel. It is a lovely blog and really great photgraphs.
I think it might inspire a few people to take that step and do something out of the ordinary!
