Sunshine, Sparkles, Sand & Sea ☀✨🌊😎👯‍♂️ Wow, wow, wow, last weekend, the first weekend in September 2023, truly was an incredible weekend!! Gareth and I spent a long weekend in St Leonards on Sea, next to Hastings, on the south coast of England, where we attended the 3rd Frock Up Friday festival.  The event takes place [...]

Cor blimey, mate! Where does the time go?

By |2023-03-07T13:37:26+00:00February 9th, 2023|

Cor blimey, mate! Where does the time go? I don’t know about you, but my days and weeks are flying by at a rather scary rate of knots! One minute it’s the weekend and then suddenly it’s ‘hump day’ (or bin day at our house) aka Wednesday, at which point you realise that you’ve only [...]

No, I am not selfish!

No, I am not selfish! Personal development is a term we’ve all been hearing more and more in recent years, along with doing ‘inner work’.  What is it all about exactly? Well, personal development is about improving yourself to become better, which may include becoming more organised, focused, or efficient, developing positive habits, or becoming a better [...]

Say Hello, Wave Goodbye!

Say Hello, Wave Goodbye! I do love that Soft Cell song (referenced in the title) – this is the link to the official video in case you have no idea what I’m on about! While this blog post isn’t about Marc Almond or Soft Cell, it is, however, about waving goodbye, finally, after 34 [...]

The hot cross bunny strikes! 

By |2023-03-07T13:39:18+00:00April 21st, 2022|

The hot cross bunny strikes!  I would say that 95% of the time, my mindset is positive, as I am sure you will know if you are a regular reader of my posts. It is genuinely what I am about – always seeking the positive perspective in life and, as a rule of thumb, it [...]

Observations, curiosity, and learning …

By |2023-03-07T13:39:19+00:00April 21st, 2022|

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 [...]

OMG – it feels SO good…

OMG – it feels SO good… Oh yes, so very good indeed! ‘What does?’ I hear you say. Let me enlighten you … For anyone who is a regular reader of my blog posts or a follower on my social media channels, you’ll know that I am a massive advocate of my weekly parkrun and [...]

Everyone loves cake … don’t they?!

By |2023-03-07T13:39:57+00:00November 1st, 2021|

Everyone loves cake … don’t they?! I, for one, love a slice of cake – nothing too rich and creamy though.  I also love baking cakes, but rarely have the time to do so; I also tend to avoid baking them because it means I will eat them! And eating cake means calories that need to [...]

Proud mum moment!

By |2023-03-07T13:39:58+00:00March 23rd, 2021|

Proud mum moment! My son, Fred, and I are very similar in many ways.  We are both pretty strong-willed, although in more recent years, as he has moved from his teens into adulthood, he has attempted – without success, I hasten to add – to rule the roost!  Despite my desire to encourage him find his [...]
