Aoife is starting to know a few words in Irish…

Hi everyone,


Hope you’re all well!


I’ve had such a lovely, family-filled week. Everyone came over for Aoife’s birthday and St Patrick’s day, so it was lovely to spend some quality time with them. We ate out a lot – Aoife had three meals out and she absolutely loved it. She’s very well behaved when we go for dinner. It’s so nice because she’s at the stage where she knows their names so she can start properly getting to know them all.



I make sure to stay in touch with my family and friends in Ireland, so that I’m not away long enough to miss it. I go back a lot – I definitely want to have a house there some day to spend summers in. At the moment though my job is here, so it’s not the right time, but I’d love to live there again one day. I do miss my Mum’s homemade brown bread, but she always brings it over when she visits, as well as Irish teabags (Sorry, I still think they’re the best!).


It’s very important for me that Aoife be in touch with her Irish heritage. She knows a few Irish words: the word ‘Gaeilge’, which means ‘Irish’, is her favourite because she finds it so funny, it always makes her giggle.


When I first started in the Saturdays, the girls loved when I used random words – instead of hello I would say ‘well’, like we did in my hometown. The girls love it when I use the random words so they’ve started repeating them. When we go to Ireland they always try them out!


Speak soon,


Love from Una xxx
