Carry On Camping

House buying this year has meant that Mediterranean holidays are just a daydream right now. The reality is, four days camping in Sandy Balls. Yes, this is a real place! It's in the New Forest but we didn't get around to visiting the actual sandy balls so I'm still none the wiser as to the origin... Continue Reading →

Positive thinking – Are you helping yourself ?

There are hundreds of self-help books on the market that promote positive thinking. People turn to these books when they are in the middle of a crisis or struggling to get where they want to be in life.

Love for the 80s

Dont wrinkle your soul

With my 36th birthday looming, I have started to think about how I feel about getting one step closer to 40. Am I reaching for the bottle or researching non invasive cosmetic procedures?

Next please…..

I don't believe I am fickle with regards to my affections but perhaps I am in other aspects of my life. When it comes to hobbys I fall in and out of love pretty quickly. I have always felt that I should have a hobby and maybe that's part of the problem, I put too much pressure on... Continue Reading →
