The Art of Packing

July 22, 2021

So, this week one of the subjects upper most in my mind (because I’m a born optimist) is packing, or should I say the ‘art’ of packing because it’s a subject I take very seriously, in fact I will go as far as to say I’m a professional packer because for many years it’s been part of my job to arrive on location with the right clothes, toiletries and activity accessories. Horse riding in France, Rock climbing in Wales, city…

Theatre Visits & Fun

July 8, 2021

Hello, Well, this week I need to share something with you, but you need to be quick on this one because when social distancing ends it’s not going to be as good. Last November I bought, as a Christmas treat, tickets to Hairspray for April 21 starring Michael Ball at my favorite theatre, London’s Coliseum, we were literally counting the days. Then variants arrived from all corners of the earth and the doors closed, but thankfully, with government guidelines opened…

Healthy Snacking & What I Eat

July 6, 2021

Hello, I don’t know about you, but I seem to have spent an unhealthy amount of time this last week looking at my BBC Weather app, it never lets me down but sadly there seems to be a distinct lack of Suns. The upside of course is I get a little more done indoors and this week’s task was writing up my thoughts on food for a book I’m writing called ‘How to Age Well’ And yes, what you put…

My Weekly & Life Updates!

June 26, 2021

Hello, Hope you’re enjoying the weather now it’s finally arrived, I certainly am. Question, what’s the first page you go to when picking up your copy of My Weekly? Some people make a cup of tea, maybe slip in a few biscuits, start on page one and methodically make their way through the magazine, savoring the experience all in one go. Others are dippers randomly opening pages flicking their eyes around until something catches their attention normally a picture or…

Summer is finally here!

June 19, 2021

Hello,   Well Summer is finally here; I say this with conviction only because that beautiful ball of heat that hangs in the sky managed to sustain its warm rays over our land for more than four days on the trot! Yippy-Dippy-Do-Da’ how grateful are we? And doesn’t it change our whole demeanor? We flourish, we blossom, our heads go up like flowers instead of being buried down in our scarves to keep the wind, rain, and cold from our…

A few skincare tips!

April 10, 2021

Hello, Have you been feeling a little more optimistic? Have you looked at spring flowers and more than ever before felt warm inside at the sight? Well, my inner Mama Moomin has definitely risen from her winter hibernation and is preparing for summer full of optimism. Not to get overly stressed, however, about the Covid holiday situation because, there’s no point, and as my mum says, “More sun, more wrinkles.” Jean is 90 and like the Queen has beautiful skin…

Plants, flowers & colour!

April 8, 2021

Hello, It’s a joy this week to see My Weekly focus so much attention on plants and flowers. The winter, due to our situation, felt like the longest I have ever known and as I look across at bare trees from my window, I’m dreaming of the day they burst into colour.   When you live in a city, no tree or tub of flowers is taken for granted. So much so that today, I signed a petition against a…

Improving Our Dexterity

March 20, 2021

I’m passionate about improving our dexterity and in my opinion, the best way of doing this is – walking. Yes, just walking. But walking properly. Between the ages of 7 to 20 I trained in classical ballet so there’s a muscle memory laid down which has never left me. However, it’s never too late to fine-tune this daily movement which improves your physical and mental life. I teach my friends when we go on our walks and I promise you…

Life- Enhancing Improvements!

March 13, 2021

Hello, Do you remember back in the day before eBay we used to do swaps at school? I swapped a Donny Osmond poster for a pair of Osmond socks, and a blue Mary Quant eyeshadow for an equally vibrant purple – because as all Osmond fans know, purple is Donny’s favourite colour! As I’d entered a competition in Radio Luxemburg’s FAB208 magazine to meet him, I needed to get my look together for when it was announced I was the…
