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 [...]

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 [...]

“A goal is a dream with a deadline.”

By |2020-11-24T13:19:50+00:00November 24th, 2020|

"A goal is a dream with a deadline." I love this quote by the American author Napoleon Hill, best known for his book Think and Grow Rich, which was published back in 1937 and still stands the test of time today. Much of the content of the original book has since been updated and integrated [...]

Look the world straight in the eye!

Look the world straight in the eye! “Never bend your head. Always hold it high. Look the world straight in the eye.” This is such an empowering quote from the incredible Helen Keller. Helen Keller lost her sight and hearing after a bout of illness as a young child yet, with help, learned to read [...]

Keep on smiling!

Keep on smiling! Wow, we are in November already! What a year this has truly been – one that none of us will ever forget, and one that will surely go down in the history books as a time of massive changes. As I write, we are all still embracing ongoing challenges to the way [...]
