5 Keys to Lasting Change

Is it too late to wish you Happy New Year? Quite possibly but as I haven’t written a blog post for, well, months, I hope you won’t mind!   Did you set yourself new some resolutions or new intentions this year? I hope that they’re going well and that you’re sticking to them but statistics suggest that 66% of UK people who started a resolution in Jan 2015 had given it up within a month so read on for my 5 keys to lasting change. Einstein is often quoted as saying the quote below. I’ve no idea whether it’ true that he said […] Read more »

Are you painting over the cracks?

How is May treating you? Are you also on a Spring Fever clearout like me? This is a slightly longer post than usual but stick with it as there’s some time sensitive info at the end 🙂 Actually, it’s not so much as a clear out (though that does need doing) as a fresh start. At least when it comes to the decoration of my home. If you read my last email then you might remember me mentioning painting my kitchen wall? I’d quickly applied the first coat of the ‘feature’ colour: Mango (that’s bright orange to you and me!) […] Read more »

Are you feeling ready for a fresh start?

Are you feeling ready for a fresh start in some (or more than one) area of your life? If so then it’s the perfect time of year to do so. Regardless of your religious views (or not) of the past few days, spring is most definitely in the air – in the UK at least! There is a frenzy of outdoor activity…. grass cutting, clearing out the weeds and deadwood, re-positioning planters for a better view, sweeping away the cobwebs, clearing out the guttering…. and that’s just outside 🙂 I spent 4 hours at the weekend cutting back and digging […] Read more »

2013 – the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly!

Well, that’s 2013 done and dusted, lets get on with this year now! That might be what many of you (including me) are thinking, especially if your year was either mixed or mostly full of lows/challenges/changes. This seems to have been the case for many in 2013.  Hot on the heels of all the hope that was pinned onto 21/12/2012 I don’t think we realised that the year that followed was going to be so full of change and upheaval! Just before you close the book on 2013 and launch fully into this new, bright, shiny year, which feels so […] Read more »

Goals, intentions, commitments – what are you choosing?

I’m sure you’ve had several ‘new year, new you’ emails by now so I hope you’ll find this post interesting enough to read until the end – it has ended up being rather long! How was you Christmas-time? I hope you managed to have a peaceful and restful time and weren’t affected by the floods and powercuts that some areas of the UK have suffered over the last couple of weeks? I’m sure my imagination doesn’t even get close to what’s it’s actually like to be flooded out so if that was you my thoughts are with you as you […] Read more »

It’s a wrap! Merry Christmas and Thank You :)

Well folks, that’s a wrap as they say in the tv/film world! We’re pretty much at the end of 2013 and it’s Christmas Eve too so I hope you also have all your presents wrapped by now and you can start to enjoy your Christmas-time. What have you got planned? Me, I’m going to spend a couple of days with my Sister and her family and call in on my Dad en-route. I love Christmas and the time it gives us to re-calibrate, to slow down (after the rushing around of food shopping and present delivering etc!), to give thanks […] Read more »
