Today I asked my Autistic brother if he would like to go on a picnic tomorrow. ‘Not really.’ he said, ‘that’s what children do.’ So, I thought in the light of him still being in the care of the NHS, he may like a day out. I had no idea he would think a picnic […]


Yep, let’s discuss poop. I’ve always been a three times a day girl. In the morning. If I only go twice, that’s ok. If just the once I feel unfinished, and heaven help us if I don’t go at all. Major grumpiness! Constipation can be a problem for many with varying degrees of blockage, and […]


Everyone needs some time out from their normal routine for a de-stress. A recharge of the batteries and time to recalibrate the system. We ensure that our cars get a regular yearly service, so why not our body? Probably because we don’t realise we need some down time until it’s too late. We run on […]


Patience comes with age. Well, it does with me. The realisation that anger, frustration and impatience doesn’t get you very far. I have been told that I have ‘great patience’, but between you and I, this wasn’t always the case. Having a brother with Autism has always tested my patience and it’s only recently that […]


So we are back to the issue of ageing again. It seems to come with age. If you see what I mean. It’s not until you get to a certain age that you really start to think about it. A birthday is meant to be a joyful occasion. A celebration. It can also be a […]


Move with the times and time is indeed moving very fast. Is it an age thing? People say the year seems to go faster the older you get. I think it’s just your perception of life and time in general. We become more aware of the world around us, the seasons changing, and how our […]


It’s a funny thing closure. Letting go is also quite a weird one. I seem to be finding lots of articles on letting go all over social media. I’m wondering if it’s an age thing? If people could learn to let go earlier in their lives, then there would be less to let go of […]


I find some days I’m really in the yoga groove and other days I could wish it would get out of my face! I mean, I see so many people on instagram making some amazing shapes in stunning surroundings that I know I will never be able to do, and instead of acknowledging the post […]


Having spent a week in Austria I have been inspired by the simple but also complex breakfast that is muesli. I’ve always liked porridge in the winter as a filling warming breakfast, but as spring moves in, my need for a warming breakfast moves out. I tend then to resort to spelt toast, which doesn’t […]


I’m actually writing this while on an flight home after a week of skiing, as I see how things have changed so fast in the world of technology. In the ‘old days’ I’d be making notes with pen and paper, now I can type into notes on my iPad and save everything ready to drop […]
