At the weekend I made a trip I had been meaning to for weeks, I went to see a Kinesiologist, not entirely sure what to expect, but knowing that I needed a 'something'.. I am so glad I made that choice! It wasn't so much what she did...although she was great and we talked lots,… Continue reading Change your thoughts..change your world..
This has been a real busy few weeks, non stop in fact, and at the weekend we held a party for my eldest's graduation...she graduated a 4yr double honours in Math and French in July and we wanted to really celebrate the achievement. My last post was full of 'what ifs', and I had been… Continue reading Grateful..
It's late, and it's when my mind tends to wander the most..the quote is so true, that every day the world demands our attention and tells us what to notice and who to be. People and life drag us along the same way and we are used to it. But every day I'm feeling more… Continue reading Waking up…
My whole life I have been a yes person. I would put myself out for anyone, even when it actually interfered with my life or happiness..

It's no secret that I'm trying to lose weight, that 'last stone' as usual, but today I read an article on girls body image that hit me like a truck. I try really hard, as a mum of 3 girls, to set a positive body image for them, to ensure that they believe they are… Continue reading Being enough…

I have suffered with fibromyalgia since… Continue reading Is Alternative the way forward?
Father's Day always brings out such mixed emotions for me. One the one hand, I am married to a man who is such a fantastic dad, and stepdad, that I sometimes feel inadequate by comparison. On the other, it is occasions like these that make me think of my own Dad, and miss him more… Continue reading Father’s Day and all it brings..
I read an article today about the nation needing a 'digital detox', and it's really hit home with me. I've quietly known for a around a year that I spend far too much time scrolling..social media, Pinterest, googling random stuff..answering every message as soon as it pings through.. But I had a bit of… Continue reading Look up, don’t miss the small stuff..
It's June already, how did that happen?! 6 months into the year and I haven't really achieved a lot, unless you count getting dressed most days, in which case I deserve a medal! I am 7wks into my weight watchers plan, and feeling great, a loss each week up until today when I stayed the… Continue reading A goal without a plan is just a wish..
Monday finds me sat on the sofa after taking 2 huge spoons of antihistamine..drinking a cup of tea and praying that I don't die... I'll rewind a little...since I've had youngest, (the boy who is sunshine but who has broken me) I have become intolerant and allergic to an array of things..I'm lactose intolerant, I'm… Continue reading Grey is the new brown..
