The POWER of NO!

By |2022-05-24T13:14:03+00:00May 24th, 2022|

The POWER of NO! No, I’m not going to do it! That was my decision on Saturday afternoon about The Clawson 10K that I’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 [...]

The hot cross bunny strikes!

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 |2022-04-21T12:00:36+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 [...]

Now that’s what I call the best way to start the week!

By |2022-03-30T11:59:18+00:00March 30th, 2022|

Now that’s what I call the best way to start the week! Blue skies and sunshine at the beach, a birthday, and a much-needed mini break!  What a winning combination! I don’t know about you, but I just love getting away to the coast and being by the sea. I love the fresh, clean air, [...]

I thought pigs had trotters, not turkeys?!?

I thought pigs had trotters, not turkeys?!?  What the blinking heck am I on about?! The Turkey Trot, that’s what! It’s a local village event, a half marathon organised by the Scouts, that takes place annually in Keyworth, Nottinghamshire. It took place this past weekend. By rights, those who run this race ought to be [...]

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 [...]

Feeling Lighter and Brighter as I Clear the Clutter

By |2018-09-28T14:31:08+00:00September 26th, 2018|

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’, [...]

Pause for thought

By |2018-09-28T17:05:30+00:00August 10th, 2018|

Or I could say paws for thought given that my two cats are watching me write this – lying on my bed, chilling.  My cats are the perfect reminder of how I, too, need to take time out – relax, be still, find a calmer, more centered mental space. Cats certainly know how to take [...]
