A few changes around here…

Do you ever get the feeling your life needs a revamp? I’ve been feeling this way for a while now and, as I’m a firm believer in decluttering your life in order to let new stuff in, I’ve started by revamping my blog! I wrote my first blog post over four years ago under a… Continue reading A few changes around here…

Magical Trees

Ah, I’ve just come back from a week in the Cotswolds. We stayed in a converted barn on a beautiful eco-friendly farm. Every night we sat on our balcony and watched the sun go down over the valley… When we woke in the morning, this was the only sound we heard… We walked through beautiful… Continue reading Magical Trees

One other intention I forgot to tell you about which came true recently in an unexpected way

After my post yesterday, I realised I missed out one important intention which came true a few weeks ago. Here it is: I used to spend lots of weekends down here by the coast, summoning up the courage to leave safe and leafy Surrey, where I lived, for The Unknown. One day, as I walked… Continue reading One other intention I forgot to tell you about which came true recently in an unexpected way

Magical things

You know I said I thought magical things could happen here? Well, they’ve started happening. Magical Thing 1: The sea air must be good for me. I have now written over 18,000 words of my book. When I pass the 20,000 mark I will have a celebratory glass of something extremely alcoholic and then pass… Continue reading Magical things

One year on…

On this day last year my dad lost his fight with cancer. After weeks of feeling numb, I vowed that I would dedicate 2013 to ‘turning my life around’ in honour of dad (I desperately wanted something good to come out of something so bad). Today I am checking in as promised, to see what… Continue reading One year on…

Happy New Year (with extra ‘happy’)

Happy new year everyone! It has been over four weeks since my move to the coast and I couldn’t be happier. It feels like this place and I were meant to be. I have lived in lovely places before, of course, but never a place that I utterly ADORE. There’s something very special about this… Continue reading Happy New Year (with extra ‘happy’)

One week to go to the fulfilment of Dream 1…

Dream 1 = moving to the coast. And there’s now ONE WEEK to go to Moving Day! I can’t believe it’s actually happening. But it must be because I am frantically packing and throwing stuff out (did I mention the new place is half the size of where I am now?). Yesterday I signed and read… Continue reading One week to go to the fulfilment of Dream 1…

The story of how one creative spirit “got her shit together”!

I am not having a midlife crisis. I am having a midlife breakthrough. I cheesily call it ‘a breakthrough’ because I am in the middle of picking up my life, shaking it like a snow globe, and seeing where things settle. There are moments where I wonder what the *bleep* I’m doing. But most of… Continue reading The story of how one creative spirit “got her shit together”!

The Jobseeker’s Prayer

I am looking for work at the moment. It has its ups and downs. Today Richard Pettitt, a fellow 30 Day Challenger, posted an inspired ‘jobseeker’s prayer’ which is uncannily like the one I have been saying for a while now. Weirdly, it hasn’t been answered. Maybe I’m doing it wrong? See what you think: The Jobseeker’s… Continue reading The Jobseeker’s Prayer
