CAN YOU HELP MARIE CURIE RAISE MONEY?

LAST year I lost a close friend of mine. The husband of one of my dearest friends. He sadly passed away last October from terminal cancer and in his last weeks, it was nurses from Marie Curie who helped my friend look after him at home. Marie Curie do amazing work like this all of the time, helping people who have come to the end of their lives, and their

HOW TO GET CLOSER TO YOUR SPOUSE

IT’S Valentine’s Day on Sunday. (Pop it in your calendar now if you’ve forgotten folks!) Which means that the topic of conversation on social media and the like, this week, is of course, going to be all about lurve. Wonderful stuff, I’m sure you’ll agree. However, as much as I like all the romance (the thoughtful stuff, not the naff) and the idea of celebrating love (it’s never a bad

FIVE THINGS TO THINK ABOUT THIS CHRISTMAS

IT’s nearly here. The big day! The day every child in the land is excitedly waiting for. The day that comes with all the expectations, all the hopes and all the stress. The day that many people are longing for. The day that many other people will be dreading. Christmas Day. For most of us there will be presents, a turkey dinner, booze and plenty of it. (If we’re lucky.) However

PUT THE SPARK BACK IN YOUR LOVE LIFE – WITH TRAVEL

YOU know what’s it’s like. At the beginning of any relationship, you just can’t get enough of each other. You’re mad for each other. Crazy and full of non stop passion. But eventually life takes over. (It has to) And careers and deadlines and children and houses, and everything else, takes all of your attention. Our love lives can often be put unintentionally on the ol’ back burner as we

WHAT MAKES A GOOD MUM?

SOMETIMES being a mum feels like the easiest job in the world. Other days, it’s the hardest, most challenging, frustrating, damn right difficult job I’ve ever had. Or ever will. We’ve all been there haven’t we? No mum is immune from those god awful parenting days. The ones that force you to your knees in the kind of way only motherhood can. Not even the best mums. (Whoever they are) Not

THE TALE OF THE UNPLEASANT EMAIL (AND OUR IMPACT ON OTHERS)

I wasn’t going to write a post today. I was going to have a full day off and do very little. You see, I had some very sad news this morning. A friend of mine, the husband of one my closest friends, passed away yesterday after a battle with cancer, and so as I’m feeling more than a little emotional right now, I decided I’d step away from the laptop and

FIVE QUESTIONS TO ASK YOURSELF ABOUT ANYONE

A FEW weeks ago I wrote a post about walking away from people. From those who make you miserable, treat you shoddily or fill your world with negativity. The post received quite the response (thanks everyone!) and is still attracting comments, even as I type. So today, I thought I’d carry on the ‘walking away’ theme and give us all some food for thought on this sunny Friday. Myself totally

WHY IT’S OK TO WALK AWAY (IF YOU HAVE TO)

I HAVE what is known as a three strike rule when it comes to people. And keeping them in my life. It’s not a rule that is set in stone, but it goes a little bit like this… Hurt me once, and I’ll forgive you. Hurt me twice, and I’ll forgive you. But I will consider your behaviour more carefully. Hurt me three times, and I’ll forgive you. But I
