Pet Therapy for Mindfulness

I’d never had a pet, as a child it wasn’t something I ever yearned for, but now I know the difference it can make, I’m not sure I would be without one now. Let me explain. Diego also known as Mr D/ Sweet Pea/ Munchkin/ DD and Chicken entered my world two and a half […]

My Guiding Light

Today is Father’s Day here in the UK. I don’t buy into the marketing hype that there should be just one day where we focus on the special people in our lives, we should be doing the everyday! I lost my Dad five years ago, but it feels like yesterday, and I would give anything […]


Hello there! I know it’s been quite a while since I graced these pages. My last post was about focusing more and that’s what I’ve been doing. I’m so glad I took the time (16 months to be exact) because it has allowed me to nurture a relationship. I met the love of my life […]

Last year I set myself 5 priorities which I wanted to guide my year. I have to say I achieved 4 out of […]

Being a Grown-up

early morning on the ocean

It dawned on me recently, when I had to make a big decision, how I actually hadn’t made any big life decision entirely by myself. I thought ‘so this is what it feels like to really be a grown-up’. We’re expected to make our first life decision around age 18 when we have to decide which […]

Living in the Moment

Trees, clouds and blue skies

Lately I’ve been enjoying living in the moment rather than instantly thinking about capturing moments on camera or frantically writing things down. There have been evenings where I’ve got home, from a night/ day out, and realised I hadn’t whipped my phone out to get that perfect Instagram worthy photo. I’ve enjoyed, and let others […]
