Welcome to The Diary of an (almost) Irish Country Wife

I started this blog when I moved from Dublin to Co Clare in 2008. I thought I’d be filling it with tales of how I swapped city living for country domesticity, but alas, it hasn’t quite worked out that way.

I continue to work part-time in Dublin, and my time in the country is usually spent catching up on domestic chores, and work related things  – the joys of being a freelancer. However, I do occasionally find the time to indulge in country pursuits and while, I have thought at times of abandoning my country wife blog, I find I still like to have a place separate from my other blogs to write about them. Even more gratifying, I find that you still like reading them – so thank you for your continued support and comments and who knows…maybe one of these days, I may well find the time to become a proper country wife!

In the meantime, in Diary of  A Country Wife, I continue to write of my love affair with Co Clare, which deepens with each year I spend here; I watch with wonder the changing of the seasons, the cycle of death and rebirth in nature: I cook and continue to share recipes, and whenever anything quirky catches my eye, I love to share it here.

And that’s the story behind the diary of an (almost) country wife!
