It is a commonly known fact that being fit and staying fit have numerous benefits to your body and mind yet so many of us don't do it. We know many reasons why this happens and so much of the time it's because there just isn't the sort of thing you fancy doing out there! We aren't all gym bunnies that's for sure and so many of us absolutely loathe and detest other forms of exercise scenarios.
As you read this today, I will be "relaxing" in the sunshine with my little girl before she starts school this week. Oh how the last 5 years have flown by!
I've got a rather marvelous new book that I was given by one of you guys a couple of weeks ago and I've loved getting stuck in whilst drinking a pina colada (or a vodka tonic!) on holiday. An amazing, kind and unexpected gift - thank you!

So, today I’m facing one of my biggest fears (apart from everyone knowing I actually have an abundance of white hair under my brunette sheen!!) Anyway, enough of that! Today, I’m actually getting my face out there and starting to talk to you on video! Yes, you’ve guessed it, I’m having a go at vlogging! How jolly modern of me.
With Father's Day just around the corner (16th June), I thought now would be a great time to suggest the perfect way to to spoil your own Dad, someone who is like a Dad, treat your other half to something relaxing, your son, grandson, Grandad, a brand new Dad - basically, ANYONE you know who deserves to be treated and recognised on Father's Day!
So, you all know the scenario, something hurts like hell or you are anxious, worried, uptight, trying to maintain a smile when in fact you’d rather be gurning with what ever strong emotion was bubbling away under the surface…. We’ve all been there, many of you as you are reading this now will be doing it. So, what is it?...
Have you ever had one of those moments where someone’s kindness and help totally changes the course of your day, week, year or life? I don’t think many of us have those that often but I was on the receiving end of a rather unexpected and rather mind blowing moment this week!
Okay okay, we are 6 days in to the new year and thoughts are going to how I will spend my time over the coming 12 months and what I want to be doing. So far I am resisting my urge to set goals and think about what I want to achieve and focusing on my day to day and how I want that to be instead. But...
AGH! Ever feel like you aren’t keeping up and that another year has whizzed by without you achieving all the things you wanted to? After the whirlwind of preparation, excitement and entertaining at Christmas we generally limp to the new year utterly exhausted! The media then hypes us up into a frenzy of “New Year, New You, New Life” type campaigns that are supposed to motivate us to change our lives / achieve greatness / lose weight / get fit / declutter the home / start that new hobby etc etc. So we launch in to January with massive expectations, hopes and numerous new habits that barely make it to the 3rd week!! Sound familiar?
