Herself is 19 today. â€œWhen,â€ she asked me, â€œwill you be doing the GDPR-breaching post for my birthday ?â€ Not tonight but, probably before the boysâ€™ birthday in September.
She seems to be pretty pleased with her haul of presents – many books including a first edition of a Samuel Beckett book of poetry in French. I paid good money for these notions and I am pleased to see them being used.
She was off at a session in the Alliance at the weekend on Irish and French literature. Simultaneous translation was provided for both the French and the Irish speakers on the panel and herself was the only person in the room who didnâ€™t need to put on the headphones at all. Honestly, my work here is done. And where do you think she got her notions?
