Have you ever watched the show Long Lost Family? Well, recently it has felt like we are on it, except for the fact that Davina McCall hasn’t been there to introduce us.

Over the last couple of years our family, on my dad’s side, has grown significantly. Unfortunately we never got to know our grandparents and therefore had lost touch with any extended family, until now.

It all started last year when we went to Cork to meet his mum’s side of the family and continued this year meeting his dad’s family in Sligo.

I was always a bit of a daddy’s girl growing up – bar, perhaps, during my rebellious teenage years when I wanted to be an independent woman who knew better than anyone else and did the exact opposite of what she was told to do.

But, I have found that, the older I get, the more I understand where my parents were coming from and that, yes, they were right… *some* of the time (although I might not tell them that part!) And, actually, I now appreciate the time I do get to spend with them.
