Singing is good for the soul

I love to sing. I can hold a tune but I am far from a fabulous singer. Thats of no consequence though because my favourite thing to do when driving is put on my favourite ballads and croon along with Whitney or Luther, much to my kids embarrassment! I’m the kind of person who lovesContinue reading “Singing is good for the soul”

A year of extremes…..

It’s 12 days until my 44th Birthday. Me and my furbaby, Finn both share our day of birth, except he’ll be 3 (or apparently 28 in dog years). It’s around this time, I look back and think about where I am in life as my birthday is approaching and a new year is here. TheContinue reading “A year of extremes…..”

Everyday is an opportunity for a fresh start.

I am finally getting a chance to sit down and pen a blog to ring in the start of 2020 on January 4th. Life has been busy to say the least. I’ve worked more in December than previously, started a new job and allowed myself to put my workouts and nutrition low down on myContinue reading “Everyday is an opportunity for a fresh start.”

Create a life you love

We are in that time of limbo between Christmas and new year when no one really knows what day it is or whether it’s acceptable to still be eating all the chocolates and drinking baileys at midday. It’s usually around this time we begin to think of what we’ve achieved in the past 12 months,Continue reading “Create a life you love”

Christmas without you…..

As Christmas Day comes to an end, it feels good to be stretched out with the family in front of the television, belly’s full, drink in hand and smiles on our faces. The day has been full of food and merriment, board games and jokes. Another years Christmas memories made which we all cherish asContinue reading “Christmas without you…..”

‘‘Tis the season to be jolly!”

Life can be tough but when Christmas festivities hit, it can take that stress to another level. Organising presents, family events, cards, children’s school activities: Christmas jumper day, nativity costume, Christmas disco, Christmas lunch. Mums, the list can feel endless and alongside the pressure we put ourselves to make it “perfect” and added on normalContinue reading “‘‘Tis the season to be jolly!””

Let me love you a little more……..

This evening I will drive to the hustle of Cambridge station and pick up my son who is travelling home from Durham in the Northern reaches of England. I always look forward to him returning home. I can’t wait to give him a big hug and have a complete family together again. I’m not sureContinue reading “Let me love you a little more……..”

Go get her a lettuce leaf!!

Almost 2 months ago I watched a film called “ The Game Changers” that started me on a journey of discovery about the meat industry and what it’s doing to the environment, our health and the animals we eat themselves. This film talked mainly about the health benefits but it sparked my interest enough toContinue reading “Go get her a lettuce leaf!!”

What will you be remembered for?

Yesterday on a cold and rainy day, up in the north of England, I attended the funeral of a wonderful woman who passed away at the ripe old age of 99. Dorothy’s family gathered, to celebrate this amazing woman who was born during the depression and lived an amazing life. We spoke of our memoriesContinue reading “What will you be remembered for?”

A childhood of two halves

This week I received a message that I knew would arrive in the not too distant future, but that still left me feeling incredibly sad ,that my 99 year old auntie Dorothy had passed away. She was the last surviving sibling of my dads and it feels like my last blood related link to him.Continue reading “A childhood of two halves”
