Jubilee Weekend

June 5, 2022

    If you’re a glass half full person I’m assuming you had a great jubilee weekend soaking up all the positive vibes rocketing around the country, reminding us that wherever we live, we are one big island team and there’s nothing like a bit of flag-waving to bring that out in us. The moaners, huddled around their cauldrons on Twitter tend to be of a type, everything is someone else’s fault, they find enjoying other people’s success and foreign…

Be The Queen Today!

May 29, 2022

What a joy it is to read this week’s magazine dedicated to the Queens Platinum Jubilee. I’m normally late to the party when it comes to making plans but to be honest nearly everyone, I’ve spoken to has their day mapped out ranging from gluing themselves to the TV with a copy of the Radio Times, tea and cake to street parties awash with bubbles, barbeques and everything in-between. Even the ‘non royalists’ won’t be able to resist a sneaky…

Do you ever ask yourself, am I living in the right place?

May 22, 2022

Hey, Do you ever ask yourself, am I living in the right place? It’s a question I ask myself constantly which means there must be some uncertainty in my mind. Where we live is either to do with where we are born, a job or a relationship, outside of that, the question is, do I live in a city/town, countryside, or coastal area? What life stage am I in, and what are my needs? I live, as I often mention,…

We Can’t Change the World, But We Can Change the Way we View Ours

May 20, 2022

Hello, I always sit for a moment before writing to you having a quiet listen to my head. Like yours, no doubt, it buzzes around at a rate of knots running through our never-ending lists, The To-Do List, The Shopping List, The Birthday List, The Who I Need to Catch Up With List, The Forward Planning List which includes diary dates for work and pleasure. But in this clatter of head noise, only one thought is viscerally shouting above the…

Self-care isn’t selfish!

May 18, 2022

Hello, This is the time of year to really check in on your mood. I can’t say this enough: Self-care isn’t selfish! You are not only doing yourself a favour but everyone around you who depends on your strength. So every day make a pledge to yourself that you will do something for yourself. For example, yesterday I spent a whole one pound on a bunch of daffodils just for me. I put them in a vase, set them on…

Colour, Flowers & Fashion

April 3, 2022

Everywhere I look I’m seeing colour, flowers, fashion even cars are looking brighter, it’s like a whole group of people got together 12 months ago and predicted Spring 2022 we’d needed cheering up! More importantly, in the depths of our wardrobes, there are patterned clothes with clashing colours we’ve kept, these clothes have been biding their time waiting to come out and sparkle again. I pulled out a blue and white paisley blouse which according to the magazines I can…

Just Be

March 30, 2022

Good Morning – I’m saying that because I want you to know I’m writing to you from my tiny office at home and its coming up to 9am. I know ‘Working from Home’ to some is a new experience that came about because of the pandemic, and made possible in practical terms by technology. Even 25 years ago the concept would have either been a nonstarter or just incredibly difficult. But the problem I have with WFH and have always…

Phone Addicts

March 28, 2022

Hello,   How fabulous to be looking at Apps in My Weekly but is it just me, or does it seem like yesterday that that we used a mobile phone as a secondary form of contact only to be switched on when away from home should anyone need to urgently contact us. Texting was a faff because you had to scrolled through the alphabet to find the right letter and predictive, totally fried my dyslexic brain to a crisp. Now…

Have you made any holiday plans?

February 10, 2022

Hello, February is coming to a close and if I point my nose into the air à la  Moominmama (Love Tove Jansson’s books) I can sniff holiday thoughts flying through the air. Three people independently over the last week have all said the same thing to me “Have you made any holiday plans?” Well, you are talking to the person who never makes holiday plans until the very last minute but yes, I am thinking about them. This annoying late…
