There’s no business like snow business!

By |2021-11-30T14:21:16+00:00November 30th, 2021|

There’s no business like snow business!  Wow! I think I can safely say that on Monday morning I experienced what was probably one of the best starts to my working week – EVER! I was certainly not thinking that as the alarm went off at 6:10am though, whilst I was snuggled up under my duvet. [...]

It was only a kiss …

By |2021-11-25T13:16:48+00:00November 25th, 2021|

It was only a kiss … Well, it was nearly a kiss, and that was the issue. I’ll set the scene. It was a Friday evening and Gareth, my partner, had set us both up for a turbo session on our road bikes. For the uninitiated, as I was 18 months ago, that means a [...]

Motorway Madness

By |2021-11-18T10:14:05+00:00November 16th, 2021|

Motorway Madness (Or white vans, motorways, and tears, aka the things you talk about when driving on the M1 on a long journey!) Let me start off with a nod to a fab weekend with my partner, Gareth, visiting one of my oldest friends, Diane (we’ve known each other since infant school and given that [...]

Letting myself feel bad – to make myself feel better

By |2021-11-09T11:59:38+00:00November 9th, 2021|

Letting myself feel bad – to make myself feel better I’m not going to mince my words here - I hate feeling cr*p and sh*tty! By that, I don’t mean that I’ve been unwell with a bad cold or struck down with an illness.  It’s more a case of that dark gloom that can come [...]

Everyone loves cake … don’t they?!

By |2021-11-01T14:22:31+00:00November 1st, 2021|

Everyone loves cake … don’t they?! I, for one, love a slice of cake – nothing too rich and creamy though.  I also love baking cakes, but rarely have the time to do so; I also tend to avoid baking them because it means I will eat them! And eating cake means calories that need to [...]

How a sliced loaf led to a lifelong friendship!

By |2021-10-13T10:03:55+00:00October 13th, 2021|

How a sliced loaf led to a lifelong friendship! Once upon a time, in the days before online competition took over, two women entered a Kingsmill bread competition. They both put their names and addresses on a postcard, stuck a stamp on it, and dropped their entries into their local letterboxes. Some weeks later, both [...]

Proud mum moment!

By |2021-03-23T11:41:51+00:00March 23rd, 2021|

Proud mum moment! My son, Fred, and I are very similar in many ways.  We are both pretty strong-willed, although in more recent years, as he has moved from his teens into adulthood, he has attempted – without success, I hasten to add – to rule the roost!  Despite my desire to encourage him find his [...]

Spooky stuff!

By |2021-02-23T14:09:15+00:00February 23rd, 2021|

Spooky stuff! Are you sitting comfortably?  Do you want to hear a spooky story?  I think you’ll enjoy this one! I have made networking a focus for 2021, and have recently joined a new networking group called Catena https://www.catena-business-network.com/catenateamnottingham. Part of their strategy is to make introductions within their network – very much like a [...]

First impressions count – they really do …

By |2021-02-23T13:31:55+00:00February 23rd, 2021|

First impressions count – they really do … You only have a matter of minutes, if not seconds, to make an impression.  In fact, Serenity Gibbons, writing for www.Forbes.com, a couple of years ago stated, “Every entrepreneur knows that first impressions are important, but you may not know just how little time you have to [...]
