Patience is a virtue

Sometimes life suddenly takes on a positive turn and things that you have practically given up on, suddenly fall into place almost miraculously. I love it when this happens! After weeks of feeling like I am hanging on in there health wise, time wise and certainly sanity wise, things are finally on a steep upwards…

Life faster with technology I beg to differ!

I’m sitting here, all poised and ready to run. However my phone is not quite ready due to numerous uploads on Facebook, and of course those misspent minutes spent liking all manner of things. I’ve already had my obligatory Mother’s Day lie-in, my lovely gifts of flowers, a wonderfully original card and scrapbook from Ellie….

In sickness and in health

Sorry I haven’t blogged in a while, I’ve been a tad poorly with a giant dose of flu, followed by a rather persistent cold during my much needed week off! I feel like I have missed so much of February already I will blink and it will be March! The worse part is I had…

Positive energy

I have to be honest, I really didn’t fancy my run this morning. I was tired, I’d been on an early shift all week, so had less sleep, my Fitbit was impressed with my many, many steps just from a normal day at work and as my oh so lovely (yet honest) hubby pointed out,…

What’s your Motivation?

Well we are a couple of weeks in to the New Year and a lot of us are finding that sticking wholeheartedly to our resolutions can be a little bit tough.  As a coach, one of the first questions I always ask my clients is ‘what is their motivation?” What’s the reason behind their particular…

Fitbit Frenzy

Well I am finally getting back into the swing of things, encouraged all the way by my amazing Fitbit. To say I love it is an understatement. It’s everything I hoped it would be and more. In fact its managed to perform a slight personal miracle! I’ll be honest I’ve always struggled to get excited…

Happy New Year

Well my Christmas came and went in a flurry of activity! We had eight people for Christmas Day and to stay overnight, which took some planning especially since there is a snorer amongst us and also I had to work early on Boxing day! Trust me, retail is not my best friend at this precise…

Time out equals energy in!

Wow, well I’ve realised its been a while since I popped on here to tell you what’s going on. I’ve been so busy having a life, I have barely had time to sit still and take stock! There’s been my Dad’s 80th Birthday do, which was great. He is now officially an Octogenarian, which is…

Spooky reflection…

I love this time of year. I know it has suddenly got dark so much earlier, but there is something lovely about crunchy leaves, hot soup and of course dressing up all gothy! It’s such a contrast from this time last year. Nothing seemed right. If my wheel of life was a real one it…

Positive Dominos

Busy, busy week full of great positive moments. An impromptu invitation to a social occasion which happened just by me being in the right place at the right time. A few minutes either way and it wouldn’t of happened at all! I had such a great time surrounded my old friends and colleagues and a…
