A VERY muddy trail run brings forth muck and mindset shifts! On Sunday 27th November 2022, Gareth and I went out for a 10km / 6-mile trail run in and around Long Clawson, Leicestershire. OMG! It was SO muddy in places, and we ran through loads of overgrown vegetation. How I didn’t end up looking [...]

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 [...]

Reviewing life …

Reviewing life … Every so often, we get to a point in our lives whereby we find ourselves taking stock – and that’s kind of where I am right now. I’ve invested hugely in social media marketing / training to understand what I need to do to promote my digital course, my services as a [...]

In the words of Frankie (Goes to Hollywood) – RELAX!

In the words of Frankie (Goes to Hollywood) – RELAX! Just writing that title transports me back to the mid-1980s when the song ‘Relax’ was topping the charts (check it out on YouTube https://youtu.be/Yem_iEHiyJ0 if you’re too young to remember – it’s well worth it!) I was embracing a full 80s vibe with my backcombed [...]

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! 

By |2022-04-21T11:58:59+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 |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 [...]
