'Nana Bairbre, can we go to your favourite place and bring Romy too?" The invitation from my three-year-old granddaughter was delivered in her gorgeous, sunshine-bright voice and is now on repeat in my head.

Lily wanted to go for French toast to our local dog-friendly café, the Mayfield in Terenure, and bring Romy, my Yorkshire terrier.

Toast for Lily, a sneaky rasher for Romy and we won't tell the vet.
