‘You just want everything to be pink and fluffy, that’s not real life you know.’ YES, I do want things to be pink and fluffy. Why wouldn’t you want everything to be nice? What is the harm in that? Now, I am realistic, I know world peace is probably a far off dream, and there […]

I had no one to entertain, no hoards of visitors to feed, and no long list of presents to purchase, but it really got to me this year. Ridiculous really. I became teary, depressive, and almost agoraphobic. Gone are the days where I used to look forward to Christmas for the parties. The thought of […]

I wouldn’t say I was a particularly stressed person these days. Christmas is never a huge affair as we have no children or grandparents to buy for, so there should be no reason for panic or last minute stress. No mountains of mince pies to bake, and no pans of red cabbage bubbling in the […]

I’ve been on a bit of a mission. Unless you have been living under a stone over the past few weeks you will have noticed the sudden surge of interest in global plastic pollution. Momentum has increased with the BBC Blue Planet, and media coverage of how our wildlife is being harmed by plastics. If […]

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 […]
