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!

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 [...]

Forewarned is forearmed!

By |2021-02-12T09:45:17+00:00February 12th, 2021|

Forewarned is forearmed! Where to start? Firstly, I think, with a warning to the squeamish, as what I am about to discuss is a very candid account of what it’s REALLY like to have an IUD removed – something that is important to talk about as it isn’t always a simple procedure, and there can [...]

Turning Rage into Positive Action 

By |2021-02-01T12:15:44+00:00February 1st, 2021|

Turning Rage into Positive Action  I am not the type of person who gets mad, or cross, or easily upset; I generally view everything with positivity. However, the other day, I got REALLY mad, REALLY cross and REALLY upset!! Following an online networking event, I agreed to connect further with someone I met via Zoom. [...]

How are you staying healthy (and sane) during this January lockdown? Well, welcome to January everyone!  Even though we are over halfway through it, it’s a long month, isn’t it?  How are you all staying sane during what always feels like the toughest month of the year?  2021 comes with its own additional set of [...]

2020 – what a year!

By |2021-01-06T12:57:18+00:00January 6th, 2021|

2020 – what a year! Wow … I was planning to reflect on 2020 during the Christmas and New Year break, but life suddenly got very busy.  From business picking up the week before the break through to arranging Christmas dinner for my parents, son and brother and then working in between times too, my [...]
