That was the week that was…

A couple of weeks ago, I had one of those weeks when you wonder both what on earth is going on, and what on earth you did for karma to be such a bitch so unkind. It all started with waking up on a Monday morning feeling like I'd aged 30 years overnight... and what... Continue Reading →

Do you remember that day when…

Not tales of cute puppies, or uplifting stories of challenges faced, battles won and goals achieved, but those times you'll never forget because of how embarrassed you felt, or how awkward it was to be you 😉 I spent my teens, twenties and most of my thirties being attracted to bad boys. It took a... Continue Reading →

Can an Extravert become an Introvert?

Over the years, I’ve noticed that myself moving from being an out-and-out Extravert to not just understanding Introversion, but actually finding myself behaving in a decidedly Introverted manner. While wondering if there was any substance to this observation, I decided to re-test myself. My Myers-Briggs category was - and still is - ENFJ (Extrovert, Intuitive,... Continue Reading →

My neighbour’s cats

I may have mentioned before that I have a fabulous - if eccentric, quirky and downright bonkers - neighbour. When we first moved in , Bernie had an elderly, long-haired, ginger cat. Spike was wont to keep to her patio, sitting on the garden furniture, where he would allow those who came to visit him... Continue Reading →

6 weeks, 11 books…

Those figures would say it's been a good start to my year's reading. With a yearly goal of 52 books - or an average of one book a week - you'd think I'd easily double my annual target if I kept up that pace. Yet I know it's unlikely that I will 🙂 It's been... Continue Reading →

I’m late, I’m late…

Although I knew I'd used up the bank of posts I'd scheduled, I got all caught up in follow-up work with my business coach and completely forgot to finish off any of the drafts I'd been working on before Wednesday came and went - oops! But, when I sat at my desk to rectify that... Continue Reading →

Are we prejudiced about Pride?

Pride isn't something us British do well, self-deprecation being preferred - and I think that' can be real problem - for pride doesn't have to be smug, loud or arrogant, it can be quiet, well-earned and good for self-esteem. There's a real epidemic in low self-esteem - far too many very capable and competent people... Continue Reading →

Body positivity… and negativity

I'm a fan of Strictly Come Dancing (Dancing with the Stars in the US), it's my one bit of utterly mindless TV. In the past, I've not started watching until the early rounds are past, when those who have absolutely no sense of rhythm are eliminated. But Himself likes me to enjoy the full experience...

If I were a…

Thank you to Ally for the inspiration of an old style blogging topic. I had a little fun by adding a bit of why I choose it 🙂 If I were.... a month I'd be September (the heat of summer is past, there's the chance of blue skies, gorgeous sunshine, pleasantly warm temperatures and the...
