Mindfulness on the M1

By |2018-11-19T15:28:50+00:00November 19th, 2018|

Mindfulness is a word that is commonplace these days. It’s a term that, I like to believe, embodies and describes the way I’ve been living my life. And in more recent years, following my coach training, being more acutely aware of the impact that thoughts, words and actions have on those around us and, more [...]

Fresh air and sun for my first Park Run

By |2018-11-06T14:14:58+00:00November 6th, 2018|

I’ve just completed my very first Park Run at Rushcliffe Country Park in Nottinghamshire … and I’m buzzing! I’m not new to running; in fact, I used to run 5k on a regular basis, but due to injuries, and life in general, I stopped a few years ago.   Then around 18 months ago, I joined [...]

Late to the party … but hey, I’m here!

By |2018-11-01T19:38:48+00:00November 1st, 2018|

I love music, and I also love peace and quiet. However, my music experience over the last few years has consisted of tuning into Radio 2 and occasionally Absolute 80s Radio – a somewhat limited choice! As a result, I’m not really in the loop when it comes to new music, the latest summer smash [...]

Ooh … tidy desk!

By |2018-10-18T14:26:57+00:00October 18th, 2018|

  Here’s a thing – it’s a wet Sunday, following an incredibly gorgeous ‘Indian summer’ Saturday. I’m pleased to say that I embraced the warmth of the weather yesterday and managed to get a pair of curtains washed and dried, a bit of light gardening done, some socialising outdoors and I even pulled in a [...]

Fuelling my fitness!

By |2018-10-13T13:16:47+00:00October 13th, 2018|

Yay! I’ve been for a run today. And it felt good! At this point, it’s still a ‘run-walk’ as I start to build my fitness levels back up. It’s the second time I’ve been out in the last 10 days. I would have done more, but I’ve had a mad busy few days that have [...]

Galvanised into Action!

By |2018-10-09T13:04:04+00:00October 8th, 2018|

Here’s a thing … you’ll probably not be surprised to hear that I have a love of our planet and all that lives upon it. And 99.9% of the time, I go out of my way to ensure I’m not hurting any living being intentionally. Well, except the one bluebottle that I swatted this year [...]

Feeling Lighter and Brighter as I Clear the Clutter

By |2018-09-28T14:31:08+00:00September 26th, 2018|

Now anyone who knows me knows that I’m not naturally tidy or great at organising.  It takes just a single glance to realise that my work space and home will, under no circumstances, ever be described as a showroom.  I can organise historic stuff without a problem, but when it comes to ‘work in progress’, [...]

‘Loose Lady’ Time! – A Visit to BBC Radio Nottingham

By |2018-09-28T12:31:45+00:00September 22nd, 2018|

Oh, how I love being a ‘Loose Lady’ on Mark Dennison’s show on BBC Radio Nottingham.  I’ve been a regular guest now for more years than I care to remember.  It’s always such great fun and I just love it when I’m on the show, as it means starting my day with a shed load [...]

Pause for thought

By |2018-09-28T17:05:30+00:00August 10th, 2018|

Or I could say paws for thought given that my two cats are watching me write this – lying on my bed, chilling.  My cats are the perfect reminder of how I, too, need to take time out – relax, be still, find a calmer, more centered mental space. Cats certainly know how to take [...]

Surrendering and going with the flow

By |2018-09-28T17:05:24+00:00August 10th, 2018|

A few years ago, I read ‘The Pilgrimage’ by Paolo Coelho, which instantly planted a seed of inspiration in my mind to travel the same path. Time passed by and having only had 8 days off work for the whole of the last year, I decided that this would be the year when I took more [...]
