Celebrating Global Pride Day, 27th June 2022 ๐Ÿณโ€๐ŸŒˆ For as long as I can remember, I have always admired those fabulous humans who dress exactly how they want to dress, invariably in a flamboyant manner, reflecting that true essence of themselves. Top of the Pops in the early 70s was the most amazing concoction of [...]

A rainbow of celebrations โ€“ not only red, white and blue! ๐ŸŒˆ๐ŸŒˆ๐ŸŒˆ I set an intention a few weeks ago to meet my Harnessing Happiness podcast guests in real life, and itโ€™s all coming to fruition. On Saturday, I met up with Helen and Claire โ€“ and their episode hasnโ€™t even been released yet! Gareth [...]

The POWER of NO!

The POWER of NO! No, Iโ€™m not going to do it! That was my decision on Saturday afternoon about The Clawson 10K that Iโ€™d signed up to run several weeks ago. A trail run race across the beautiful Leicestershire countryside. Gareth had booked places for both of us, and I had thought that we were [...]

Say Hello, Wave Goodbye!

Say Hello, Wave Goodbye! I do love that Soft Cell song (referenced in the title) โ€“ this is the link to the official video in case you have no idea what Iโ€™m on about! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y9KgEs3Zksg While this blog post isnโ€™t about Marc Almond or Soft Cell, it is, however, about waving goodbye, finally, after 34 [...]

Observations, curiosity, and learning โ€ฆ

Observations, curiosity, and learning โ€ฆ When I spend time reflecting, I realise that how I glean information today is something I have done all my life. Over the years, Iโ€™ve always taken note of stuff that โ€˜speaksโ€™ to me as important.ย  Iโ€™ve listened and grabbed nuggets from books or magazines that Iโ€™ve read; from conversations [...]

Running with APEs?ย

Running with APEs?ย  Did you know that it was National Acceptance Day on Thursday 20th January? I heard about it on Radio 2 that morning and planned to write a blog post about it then. But the moment vanished, as did the following few days! In the spirit of acceptance, I have accepted that those [...]

It was only a kiss โ€ฆ

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

It was only a kiss โ€ฆ Well, it was nearly a kiss, and that was the issue. Iโ€™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

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 (weโ€™ve known each other since infant school and given that [...]
