Brexit or Bremain – who wants something different?

I was on the fence and seriously considering ‘out’ based on a quote I often use ‘if you want different results you have to do something different’. 

But in amongst all the scare-mongering from both campaigns, I started to spend time looking at the facts and how they impacted what is important to me. For the campaigns are of course trying to scare us

Mid-life crisis, or is it?

Why is it considered a crisis?
What is your immediate interpretation of this term?
Why is it typically applied to men aged somewhere between 35 and 50 who are questioning and challenging their life and achievements so far? Wondering ‘is it enough?’ Perhaps feeling an element of guilt, that they haven’t done enough to fulfil themselves or that they have so much compared to others who are suffering in this world.

What if this period of questioning wasn’t met with such a negative label?

The Garden I Grew Up In – Bees and Butterflies


I’m here, laying on the grass of the garden I grew up in. I’m watching the honey bees elegantly dance over and cling like hummingbirds on the clover blooms. The light of the evening sun is illuminating the subtle colours and its warmth is welcomed.

Sometimes, most times in fact I think I think too much. My brain seems to dive right down between the weeds and starts looking for root cause, for an answer, a reason, the bigger picture, for the beginning. Sometimes, while in amongst the roots it is also up there in the clouds, happy, enjoying the freshness of each delicate moment. It is rare my head rests.

Listening to my body.

It’s not often that I would be waking from an afternoon nap, let alone on a Monday when I would ordinarily be at work. But today I listened to my body.

En route to work last Wednesday I found myself laying on the floor of the public toilets of a train station waiting for an ambulance. Yes, maybe I should have listened to my body a bit sooner.

Is it coincidence that this morning I looked at my bare feet, amazed at how the bright pink nail varnish that I had applied in Ubud almost two months ago was still there – reminding me daily of the warm love of Bali.

Ice cream and fruit salad.

A dear friend of mine discovered that her ex, who had been keeping in touch for booty calls, was in fact out and about with another girl, she decided to tell him he was a dirt bag, not good for her and had blocked his number.  We messaged…

It pays to read the brief!

I’ve been using my commute over the past two days to write a piece for submission into a competition.  It’s the first time I have ever, EVER been compelled to do something like this, but I knew in an instant what I would write.

One of my true loves.

The deep burble vibrated up through my feet, whizzed round the pit of my stomach and caught my heart. Oh how I love that sound, that feeling, it stops me in my tracks, it makes me catch my breath.

They were near – out of sight, but so near I could feel them.

Today is the right day.

Today is the right day.
Today is the right day.

Now is the right time

Carpe diem

Do it now, sometimes ‘later’ becomes ‘never’

Do not put it off. Do not give yourself excuses. Just do it now

A year from now you will wish you had started today

What’s stopping you?  That’s right, nothing

and so it happened that I wrote my very first blog.
