I have fun in the summer growing my own vegetables but its funny how they turn out different shapes from what you buy in the shops. They do not always conform. In actual fact today is the first time I picked a straight cucumber lol. I think that’s what happens in life too. We are […]

Living your life through love

Do you ever speak to a person who is a total inspiration? This week I did and I can’t stop thinking of our conversation. I spoke on the telephone to a lady who was 84 years of age and she had a heart of gold. She had been previously treated for cancer and still keeps […]

Healthy Lifestyle equals Happy families

A couple of weeks ago I had been planting vegetable seeds ( a bit late I know). I’ve now been bitten by the bug again and have ordered more. There is nothing like growing your own food, especially knowing that no chemicals have been added to it. It made me think of the health issues […]

Looking back over 2015

It’s amazing how fast this year has gone past. I can’t believe we are almost at the end of December 2015. One of my highlights this year was in August. I was asked to take part in an interview with Faith Canter who is the author of Living a Life  Less Toxic. It was fun, […]

Benefits Into Work. Change Is Needed!

 Todays blog is unusual for me but I needed to get it off my chest. Thank you for reading. It is just over a year ago that the song Caledonia was recorded by The Libations.

Changing For A Better Life

Following on from my last blog “You are what you eat” I am  pleased to say that I have watched the film Fork over Knives and have bought the book to read. The biggest change so far is I decided to remove all meat from my diet. For over 20 years I have not eaten […]

You Are What You Eat

I just have to tell you about the last lady I spoke to at work today. She would like more people to know about what she is doing. She is 71 although sounded under 40 and she has womb cancer. The important thing is it has almost gone instead of spreading and killing her within […]

Gratitude In The Moment

Do you ever feel you are running on empty and need to recharge your batteries? It could be you are a busy Mum or Dad, or a Business person but we are really all just the same. It is so easy to get caught up in all we want to do that we never stop […]

Let The Light Through.

The world can easily feel like a dark place with all that’s going on in it. Although I have not watched or listened to the news or read newspapers for a couple of years, I still get bombarded with it through social media.When we see and hear things like murders, accidents and generally anything that […]
