You probably have the impression that when you are the diarist of the Sunday Independent for the past 13 years your feet rarely if ever touch the ground.
You’d be wrong.
Be that as it may, last Wednesday I was on the 8am flight from London to Dublin when at 30,000 feet over the Irish Sea I noticed the woman sitting in the opposite row: Grainne Seoige.
We got talking. In fact, we got on like a plane on fire. I was going to ask the pilot to fly around a bit more so that the RTE star and I could talk a bit longer. (Where is Michael O’Leary when you need him, eh?) Still, I was able to glean that she had just flown in from South Africa where she enjoyed a bit of a break with her beloved Leon Jordaan in Pretoria.
The gorgeous Gaeilgeoir added that she and her Durban-born fiance — they got engaged in November, 2013, having been dating since October 2011 — are hoping to get their wedding in South Africa finally organised for this year, but it is “difficult to keep everyone —family and friends in Ireland and South Africa — happy. So hopefully, this year. . .”
Once the plane landed, the popular Crimecall presenter walked me through passport control, before I left her at the baggage carousel to pick up her bags. Life is like a carousel, really, isn’t it?
