Moving forwards

Moving forwards

So much has happened since my last post…. Firstly Spring has arrived in all its beautiful glory And just as importantly, as a family we have made the decision that we are going to definitely move to France. Even my 8 year old son is happy to go seeing it as an adventure and an opportunity to have more time as a family. But what a lot of things need sorting before we get there. Firstly we have sold our…

There is only now….

There is only now….

On the wall of my office at work I have some words from Hugh Laurie which remind me of what’s important. I wanted to share them with you today. ‘It’s a terrible thing, I think, in life to wait until you’re ready. I have this feeling now that actually no one is every ready to do anything. There is almost no such thing as ready. There is only now. And you may as well do it now. Generally speaking, now…

Time passes…

Time passes…

I was shocked today when I looked at the date on the last post and realized two months had passed almost without me noticing. So much for my commitment to write several times a week. Unfortunately this is a bit of a pattern for me which I am determined to break – I’m very good at starting things – not so good at keeping the momentum up and finishing things.

The dreaded Media Skills training

The dreaded Media Skills training

At work last week I was sent on a Media Skills training course. I had been actively avoiding it for 3 years but in the spirit of facing my fears I agreed to do it. It was a day spent developing your interviewing skills for both radio and TV. The morning was spent being interviewed on the radio – this was okay although I found that my voice did sound a bit like a London East End market trader which…

What’s important to me?

What’s important to me?

Over the last couple of years I’ve spent a considerable amount of time (and some money!) on trying to work out what my passion is and how to make this into a reality in terms of work and life-style. I have got closer to the truth but have always seemed to get stuck at the point when I needed to take action for a multitude of reasons but the biggest one is always fear. I feel at last that I…

Why the flower and a bee?

Why the flower and a bee?

I am going through a period of my life when I want to make some changes and live a life true to myself. I am on a personal journey to find out what that magic thing is that I want to do and this blog is part of that journey. I love flowers for their beauty, colour, simplicity, complexity, variety, smell….. and I love bees too. Bees are always very busy, buzzing around, living a life full of purpose with…
