Supporting each other …

By |2018-12-18T19:54:00+00:00December 18th, 2018|

As I’ve talked about in previous posts, I’ve galvanised myself back into running and have recently started attending my local Saturday morning Park Run. A couple of weeks ago, I arrived and bumped into Mari – someone I’ve got to know over the last few years, but only in a ‘hello, how are you?’ kind [...]

Talking of Speaking …

By |2018-12-18T19:50:57+00:00December 18th, 2018|

Wow! I’ve had a mad few weeks and have suddenly realised that my blogging has started to lag behind my social media posts. Crikey, there are SO many platforms to consider these days … I admit that I’m a work in progress on all this stuff. In fact, we are all a work in progress. [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Feeling Lighter and Brighter as I Clear the Clutter

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 [...]

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 [...]
