My Perfect Day – 

‘Walking woodland pathways on leaves of rust and gold, to reach the seashore where reflections of mountains, trees and boats sat on the calm still water. Ripples ran across the surface as the twigs he threw landed as make-believe vessels. Perfect peace only disturbed by the purring engine of the little boat returning from nearby Garnish Island.

The sun swapped places with the moon and soon the sparkle of the stars appeared. Time to return home to a crackling fire, warming hot chocolate and the vase of dancing yellow roses. On the homeward journey beautiful Bantry Bay and Whiddy Island disappeared into the darkness of night.

Colm remarked ‘wasn’t that a lovely day’ while also adding ‘I know lots about Space and Dinosaurs’. A very wise six year old who like me his (favourite) auntie knows that, yes, all the free ingredients of West Cork do indeed make ‘A Perfect Day.’

My Perfect Day – 

Would have to be waking up to no alarm clock, having a late hot breakfast and a long coastal walk with my dogs, followed by a cosy evening in by the fire with my other half…bliss.’

My Perfect Day – 

Early breakfast followed by a one hour swim in the sea. Home for roast chicken dinner with my wife and kids and a long walk in Lough Hyne woods after. To finish the day, a few pints and a bit of craic with my wife and a few friends in a local pub, Heaven!’

My Perfect Day – 

Is a day without technology. Up early listening to the dawn chorus as I watch the sun rise, then its time for a walk in the woods with Willow my dog. The creative process of work bring its own sense of achievement and no day is complete without being able to spread a little bit of magic. I like to finish my day with good food and wine, a hot bath, a good nights sleep and no pain.’

My Perfect Day – 

‘You can call any day perfect if you’ve spent it with people you love, doing whatever it is that makes you happy. For me that’s something simple like cooking a nice dinner for my boys and then curling up on the couch together to watch a movie. Or even a day at work, drinking coffee with my mum and sketching up some new ideas. Every day can be perfect if you make it.’

My Perfect Day – 

A frosty morning, circa 8am, the ground is firm. I wrap up in a coat, scarf, gloves and I bring my springer spaniels for a walk around our local woodland. The air is sharp, and you can take a deep breath, and try to ignore the daily bombardment of emails, messages & calls.

To be able to walk in silence, absorb your surroundings is a fantastic way of  balancing your mind in a world where work can often take precedence. Young people feel enormous pressure to succeed, and perform, its good to take some time out in an environment that is a polar opposite to your usual surroundings.’
