Create space and trust

There's a well-known saying "as one door closes another one opens" and it's true, just not always obviously nor on the same day. As I decided mid-year last year that it was time to change things up in my life, create more space, work more mindfully and...

Backwards and forwards

We're often being told to "stop living in the past" and to "forget it, it's gone" or such advice.   The intention is positive of course.  We can't change what's happened and we can't undo or unsay what's been done or said. We can however learn from it. ...

SO Infuriating

One of my mentoring group members told our gathered group something which has us spitting feathers!  Metaphorically speaking but you get the idea.   Annoyed.  Outraged.  Infuriated.  A couple of us swore. Jane, let's call her, had deputised...

Circular Moments

Teary no more

We've just returned from Abu Dhabi.  A week in the sunshine with no agenda. Before we left I felt 'full' and close to tears a lot of the time. Since 26 December 2021 I've been focussed on the house we found online, on that day.  Kind of by accident we found...

Change of Scene

Snowy was fed up with his 'feature' wall in his Home Office. We'd inherited it when we moved home in April and he felt it was too floral and busy and wanted a change.  I agreed with him. Where to start with so much choice?  How long would it take?...
