Are you celebrating your successes? In the current financial climate, there is so much negative talk and focus that it is easy to lose sight of our achievements. The successes we have on a daily basis that should be noted and celebrated. Yet these get lost in the noise and overlooked; taking with them … Continue reading Are you celebrating your successes?
I've known my husband for 31 years this month and by association, I've known his mother, Elma. Over those three decades our relationship has been interesting; we are both strong-willed women and at times we've clashed head-on whilst in times of crisis we've supported each other un-conditionally. when John and I took the decision to … Continue reading The gift to myself of a clean slate for my mum-in-law
can it really be three months since we arrived In Myddfai, in our little piece of Welsh heaven? The time here seems to work on a different schedule at a slower less stressful pace. There are days when it's suddenly ten o'clock and all I've done is feed the birds. It's wonderful. it is also … Continue reading Croeso i Myddfai
I love watching Formula One. I've always loved cars; watching and driving and even being driven (as long as it's by someone who understands the need for a gap between you and the car in front!) and I'm often referred to as a petrol Head. when F1 announced the new cars this year, I was … Continue reading Bitter sweet victory?

Choices about our roles as parents, children, lovers and partners; as entrepreneurs and business collaborators, as people. it's an emotional experience making change on a large scale, exciting, scary, confusing, surprising, … Continue reading New choices
Isn't it a wonderful picture? Yes - it's me. I have never felt this way about a picture of myself before. It was quite unexpected; I'm choosing to let myself shine and enjoying it! The photograph was taken by the very talented @aminart - someone I met through Twitter, who brightened my timeline with his … Continue reading Choose to let yourself shine
I've always loved this quote. "At any given moment, you have the power to say 'this is not how the story is going to end'". It's tough to see it sometimes, when you're so deep into your own issues, your own problems and head-talk. It can be easier to say "there's nothing I can … Continue reading At any given moment – you can make the choice
I loved Toyah as a teenager; I still do. Her hair (of course) and make-up, but also her power, her self-confidence, her rebel-quality. I looked up to her and emulated her style with more and more outrageous hair-cuts and colours that resulted in the inevitable suspensions from my posh school for young-ladies. Result! Toyah showed … Continue reading You are allowed to be you
