Today was a lesson in patience. One of those moments when you just have to breathe, and step back a little. I haven’t seen my brother for a week or two. Trying to back off and see how he managed by himself. Although he has support from Mencap in the block of flats where he […]

We live in a physical world, in our human bodies, and we need to have balance. We are always hearing about how we are spiritual beings having a human experience. In order to have this experience and enjoy it to the full, we need to look after both sides. The physical and the emotional. We […]

When I was away skiing in Austria, there were bottles of Kombucha at breakfast, so this became a new morning ritual, together with the Bircher! I had occasionally bought small bottles of Kombucha from Abel and Cole with my veg box, but in order to have a daily dose, it would be quite expensive. So why […]

Where do you go when you need some time to just be? I’m so lucky to live in the countryside where I can take walks with my dog, and be mindful. I have a garden to sit in, and a yoga mat to become present on. Sometimes though I need a change of scene, and recently I […]

So much to learn, so much to discover. Why on earth had I never tried over night oats? (Also known as Bircher). My life has changed! No more crunching through granola, although I do still have it occasionally. I discovered this brilliant super filling breakfast while away in Austria. I wasn’t sure what it was, […]

It’s been nearly a year since my brother was admitted to hospital under section 2 of the Mental Health Act. So much has happened since then, having to cut through all the red tape, and then find him somewhere new to live. It has been an eventful time but so rewarding. Today, as the weather […]

I’m a bit slow on the use of the iPad. The intention was to start a blog post while on a flight from Bristol to Salzburg last Saturday, but I found this little colouring tool. I didn’t have a stylus, obviously, so it’s a bit rustic, and I was in flight! I tried to draw […]

I haven’t written much about my brother recently, probably because everything is ticking a long quite nicely. This week I have been thinking about his generosity towards others. How he always gives to a homeless person in the street and how he will put his change in a charity box at a till. I see […]

Being a woman, you think you know what is going to happen when you ‘reach a certain age’. It isn’t until you actually get to that stage yourself, that you realise that everyone is very different. You hear people who are older than you talking about it, and you seem to be drawn to magazine […]

I still haven’t embraced video blogging or Face Book Live. I’m still stuck in the old ways of the written word, but I’m told that I write just as I sound, which is a good thing I guess, so I must be doing something right. I’ve always been authentic in how I approach people, although […]
