Well, apparently, we are starting to see a light and the end of this locked down tunnel. I say apparently, seeing as things are opening back up and if social media is anything to go by, not a lot of people are bothering with social distancing anymore. I’m not judging you if you’ve indulged … Continue reading Learning in Lockdown
Well. Apparently we all upset 2020. I am not sure what we did to hurt you, but we are sorry and you can calm down now. We get it. I have written a blog post numerous times over the last two disastrous months and nothing I wrote was ever able to say what I wanted … Continue reading Sorry, 2020.
What a year it has been! It feels like it has been a very quick one – nearly over in the blink of an eye. Apparently, this is how it goes as you get older – each year running quicker and quicker. Not an overly comforting thought but I do think it reinforces the need … Continue reading And the clock struck 12

Up to this point in your life, you have been a small human sponge, taking in all the values, beliefs and behaviours that have been presented to you by your parents, guardians, teachers and environment.

A very happy Easter weekend to you all. With it comes the end of Lent – so if you gave anything up, well done! I have succeeded in my quest to reduce negative self-talk and as I said in my previous post, it genuinely works wonders. I can find the good in every situation and … Continue reading You be you. Let the world adjust.
Last week I had one of -those- weeks. You know the one. The one where you feel like your brain and body have had a falling out and are refusing to work in sync with each other.
