I’m not sure that I’m qualified to say what I was like as a child. I think I was a pretty awesome little kid. Maybe I was a tiny bit stubborn and potentially had anger issues but I know for a fact that I was hilarious and entertaining. My view of me as a child is probably slightly skewed as I just remember the nice, crazy fun parts. Endless summers, strawberries, sticky buns, mess and laughter. I don’t ever remember thinking, “What am I like?” “What is this life?” “Why am I mixing talcum powder and cucumber in this pestle … Continue reading The inner child
Music is majorly important to me, I will always have some sort of music on whatever I’m doing. I’ll have the radio playing downstairs, my iPod on upstairs and something playing on my phone as I carry it around with me. It’s comforting and soothing. It picks me up, it helps me relax and sometimes with the right piece of music it can transport you off somewhere else. I have been practicing meditation more frequently and I think it’s starting to open up certain areas of my brain that have been neglected for years. There’s a creativity in there that … Continue reading Moved to the music

Yes, I’m nearly 40! How has this happened? I still feel 18. I remember being 18 and thinking that 40 was REALLY old… and it REALLY isn’t! However, I do wake up most mornings in pain and everything hurts pretty … Continue reading 40 things before 40

‘If you’re going through hell my dear, just keep going’.* Do not stop to dwell on your surroundings. Your current hell is not where you belong, a beautiful paradise is waiting for you. And although the perfection that awaits will ultimately fade and your hell will rear its ugly head once more, just remember that each time you come out of the other side you have grown, changed and rebuilt a little bit more your soul. You have become stronger, in body, mind and spirit. These times will build you up into the most incredible person, equipped to deal … Continue reading If you’re going through hell…
I spent the weekend in Wragby, Lincolnshire, with my Mother Goose and my Mother-Outlaw. And it was wonderful! We did so many of the things. Friday night was rather relaxed and mainly consisted of eating some food and going to bed because that’s how rock ‘n’ roll we are… oh we had Prosecco! That’s always rather nice. Saturday, however, was a whole different kind of story! We visited Bolingbroke Castle, in Bolingbroke, funnily enough. I had Googled some dog friendly places as we had Foxle Doggle with us aka Foxo Stuffing aka Foxy the Dog. Here is dog… Bolingbroke … Continue reading My weekend with the Mothers.
I see these really annoying posts all of the time on social media, generally Facebook. They are sponsored posts usually advertising to me because a friend of mine likes their page… Well, I haven’t liked your page so I don’t want to see your stupid article… anyway, the ones that really rile me are usually along the lines of… ‘10 reasons why your relationship is failing‘. ‘10 ways to stop your relationship from failing‘. ‘Follow these 10 simple rules to save your failing relationship‘. Right, I get it, the relationship market is a big seller, nobody wants to be alone, … Continue reading That’s your advice? Really…?
I enjoy time on my own, I can do as I please, I can eat where I like, I can go where I like and it’s just peaceful and fun. I have also noticed that people are so much nicer to me when I’m alone, as thought they feel sorry for me…which is kind of sad but also great because it means I get really good service 😉 They don’t have to feel sorry for me though, I do lots of things alone and I love it. I go for walks by myself, it’s nice to have company but sometimes … Continue reading My solo travels – First stop…York
I have around ten thousand thoughts an hour. Well it’s probably way more than that…actually I’m going to Google that right now. Okay, so the average person has around 2,000 – 3,000 thoughts per hour. With that in mind I definitely believe that my prediction of 10,000 thoughts an hour for myself is true. I have a hard time living in the now, it stresses me out that I can’t do it so I don’t push it. I live in the now when I can and when it feels natural. When I am practising Yoga or I am going … Continue reading Just for the sake of it.
