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

Running with APEs? 

By |2023-03-07T13:39:24+00:00January 25th, 2022|

Running with APEs?  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 …

By |2023-03-07T13:39:55+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

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 |2023-03-07T13:39:56+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 |2023-03-07T13:39:59+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 |2023-03-07T13:40:00+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 [...]
