At school I would wish so hard that we would run out of time and the lesson would end so I wouldn't have to read out loud. I thought about this today as I was driving to The Kitchen at The Wharf in Langport -  my hosting venue for Somerset Art Weeks. As a child I was SO scared of…

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 already? It will soon be…

'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 are people on this planet…

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 a two minute clean twice…

  When I first moved here to the countryside after selling my two salons, I knew exactly which direction I was taking. I wanted to be able to treat clients on a one-to-one basis in an environment that enabled total peace and relaxation. I left behind the bustling high street salon environment and wanted to be in a space where…

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 depressing, which is quite odd…

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 diaries run. When we are…

It's a funny thing wisdom.  When do we get it? Does it mean the person has just lived longer or experienced more, travelled more, seen more, read more or just offers the advice that hits the spot? I'm 48 years old. I don't always mark my age with a birthday, but with the turn of the New Year. It used…

So the college reunion last weekend with 10 beauty therapists, many not in the industry any more, was a huge success. One of those events that you get yourself all worked up about and then find everything just slots in to how it used to be. Our class was very close. There were two groups of Hair and Beauty students…

I've been meaning to write about this for a while, but keep finding new things to add. If I leave it any longer, I will have been through and come out the other side! In my line of work, I see all sorts of people with varying physical and emotional ailments and issues. As I've got older, so have my…
