It’s here again…. All Hallows Eve, or Halloween. It hasn’t smelt like Autumn yet as we have been enjoying some glorious warm weather, but the clocks went back yesterday, and as if by magic, we had a light frost last night, and the smell of autumn is now in the air! The veils grow thin. […]

Mindfulness techniques are something you can’t really use at the dentist. Mindfulness is all about being in the moment, and when I’m at the dentist, I don’t want to focus on being in the moment at all. I’d like to be somewhere else. A long way away! I’ve always looked after my teeth. At least […]

This may seem like an odd question to those who have a stack of books by the bed or on the coffee table, but for me it was quite a tricky question to answer. What sort of book? A woo woo type book with a shamanic thread? Something by Deepak Chopra, Alice Hoffman or Eckhart […]

Sometimes we think we may have strayed from our path, just because we aren’t achieving the things we think we should be. Social media is partly responsible for this, but we have always as a human race, often wanted what others have. The grass always being greener and all that jazz. Your pathway is individual […]

Well this was an interesting one. I’ve had to learn to spell schizophrenia for this post! Many of you know that early last year, my 48 year old brother was taken to hospital under section two of the Mental Health Act, where he spent some time getting the help he so desperately needed. We managed […]

It may not seem a big deal for many, and I have to say the run up to it was worse than the actual birthday, but becoming fifty was quite an issue for me. My husband also reminded me, that so was 30 and 40! Many people would think I was mad to be worried […]

Fifty is NOT the new forty. It’s fifty. It is as it is, and at some point you may begin to think you are invisible. Are you invisible? Have you had that feeling that there is nothing to look forward to, or to plan for? Are you lost because your children have left home and your […]

I’ve been to a reunion. Well, not a big reunion, just seven of us, but still a reunion as three of the girls I hadn’t seen for about 25 years or more. We were all the same. Just older. Essentially the same people but different. Time changes people. We grow, we evolve and we shift, […]

Last week a lightening storm gave us a momentary power cut, which in turn played havoc with the wifi. The home hub modem was running rather hot and kept switching itself to the, ‘emergency, I’m not working now’ mode. We were able to get about 10 minutes of Wifi each morning until it turned off. […]

Everyone needs some time away from what they do. Time for a reboot and recharge. For me, all I need is some time by the sea and a massage. A good massage. Well, actually a full blown Ayurvedic spa experience! This was my destination of choice last week. We found The Scarlet Hotel in Cornwall […]
