I’ve always been pretty consistent with my blog writing, but I’ve recently lapsed. It’s been too long between posts, and for those who only follow me here, I apologise! I’ve been spreading myself across a selection of social media to find which avenue works best. It seems they all do! Not everyone uses every platform, […]

It’s been a long time coming, but we have finally had the ski holiday we missed out on last year, when the Beast From The East scuppered our flight. If you are new to this blog, then read about the turning point here. I’m not a natural born skier. You know this. I didn’t learn […]

It’s a question we hear a lot these days, or is it just an age thing, and we are just more aware of it? Were we being told about being happy in our skin at the age of 20? Probably not. We were all concerned over our cellulite and big thighs, which diet was the […]

I’m a little late in writing a new blog post. I was suddenly aware it is nearly mid summer, and realised I haven’t written since the trip to France. Rather than panicking about it, I noticed that I have actually given up worrying about time. People inevitably exclaim,’Where has the time gone? Is it mid-summer […]

It’s been a long time coming. Today is the day my brother goes on his first real holiday! His first holiday since he was a teenager, and other than a trip to Ireland when he was about nine years old, he has never been abroad. He is now 48. After living with psychosis for many […]

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 […]

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 […]

It’s very often the small things that give the most joy. Yesterday was one of those days. For those of you who have been following the story of my autistic brother over the summer, you will know that we have moved on from a very dark place. A place of sectioning under the Mental Health […]

Here we are again. A supermoon. Not just any supermoon, this is the largest one in nearly 70 years. It will appear a third brighter than usual with NASA saying its about 14% wider than a normal full moon. Now, we all know by now that the moon doesn’t grow and it’s not actually larger […]
