I’m setting myself a challenge for 2018 and I’d love you to join me. I’m going to find more to celebrate. I’m going to go out of my way to share things I believe will encourage other people to celebrate the positives in their lives too. And let me be clear, I’m not hiding my head in the sand or pretending that everything will get better for Planet Earth whilst I’m focussing on the positive. I am not going to be silent, I am not going to sit back and let the world continue on it’s self-destructive path without speaking and peacefully protesting in any way I can. And I will do that in a positive way, celebrating my ability to express my opinions in a (relatively) free country.

Sounds like a dream doesn’t it? ManyContinue reading “You can have it all ladies….”
Are you celebrating your successes?
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 gift to myself of a clean slate for my mum-in-law
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 toContinue reading “The gift to myself of a clean slate for my mum-in-law”
Croeso i Myddfai
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 alsoContinue reading “Croeso i Myddfai”
In my opinion…
In my opinion, there is too much hate in the world. Too many young people taught to continue the hatred developed and nurtured by their elders and ancestors. Too many reasons found to continue the hate despite all the obvious ones to end it, to move on. in my opinion, there are too manyContinue reading “In my opinion…”
Today I’m choosing “Happy” as my mood. I’m making the decision to only share positive and uplifting things today; things that make me feel happy and are likely to have the same impact on others. Today I’m choosing not to share posts with negative headlines or those images of war that move me to tearsContinue reading “Choosing “Happy””
We’re making new choices; choices for our home and lifestyle, choices about priorities and what matters to us as a couple and as individuals. 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”
Choose to let yourself shine
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!

At any given moment – you can make the choice
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 canContinue reading “At any given moment – you can make the choice”
