The Power of Three

September 15, 2022

Hello   I’m a great believer in the power of three, so three incidents on the same theme mean I need to share them with you. My first was a Tweet that made me laugh out loud. It came from an English Teacher called Amy Wright after the Lionesses Victory over Germany in the final of The Women’s European Champions 22. It goes like this.   Bloke: Football’s coming home, it’s coming home, football’s coming home. Woman: After 56 years…

How to Get a Good Night’s Sleep

August 26, 2022

Hello,   Our lovely Editor Stuart said to me one of the subjects we are talking about this week is how to get a good night’s sleep, do you have any thoughts on this? ‘Thoughts?!’ I said a little too loudly – I presented breakfast television for years, so it became my obsession! I made a complete study of the subject because not only did I have to sound awake and be on my metal, I had to glam up…

Let’s Chat!

August 25, 2022

Hello,   I’m writing to you on an exceedingly hot day with the only upside I’ve managed to turn around a record amount of washing due to the sun drying everything faster than I can pull my next load out. To avoid the heat, I walked Soho our French Bulldog early but even that was too much for him and once off the lead he gleefully rolled in its cool muddy waters. On our journey home I could see people…

Didn’t you think to put sun protection on?

August 24, 2022

Last week I met 3 people who looked like lobsters. Been on holiday? I said, ‘No’, one replied in the garden, another sitting in the park and my Stepdaughter on a beach in Cornwall. Didn’t you think to put sun protection on? Well it’s Britain, I forgot! And that’s the biggest problem with sunburn in this country, we just forget, I’ve done it myself many times. When we go abroad our headspace is very different, essentially, we’re going to the…

August 23, 2022

Hello “This is going to be a positive week” Say it out loud, then say it again, you have put your intention out there and all you have to do now is to turn it into one. Make a list of everything you are going to tackle including at least two things you’ve been putting off. Don’t make this a long list it’s what you on your ‘A’ game can achieve in a week. I know myself if I make…

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…
