    Schools out for Summer

    The big day has arrived & in the words of Alice Cooper, no more pencils, no more rule books, no more teachers, dirty looks! School holidays begin, but may bring a feeling of dread to many parents on how to fill those nine long empty weeks!  In studio with Miriam this morning to discuss ways of using the time in keeping your children  happy & busy this summer is Irish Times journalist & author Catherine Cleary.

    Catherine also wrote a book based on the idea of making the most of time of doing the things now we always think we will do someday, titled 'A month of Somedays'.
