Transitioning

Last week was not the best. I did not see trouble on the horizon either, because the week started well. I reset the dreaded alarm, started going to bed at the same time, managed to get a couple of morning walks in and had two good business meetings. However, my hormones had other ideas, strengths […]

Spillage

My new business cards arrived and I’ve been slowly getting my ‘twitter’ on. I met with a Business Advisor from a local enterprise scheme, then I had to put my big girl pants on for my first ever networking meeting. Everyone I met was encouraging and helpful, which naturally generated more things for me to […]

Winter blues

I’ve had two weeks of winter blues and general malaise. So coffee and a chat with a friend early in the week was a welcome distraction. It ended up being a worthwhile heart to heart discussion that I did not know I needed. The following day I released the old shackles of negativity, low self-esteem and […]

Rookie mistakes

Good news. I have a brand new follower, it’s exciting and I couldn’t be happier. As soon as I can work out how to reciprocate and come up with a Gravatar (an online identifier, I think) things will be even better! I’ll add that to the never-ending list of things to do. Seven months into […]

Getting Paid​

Memories of Morocco are gently fading into the distance, only to be relived in snippets of conversation and the photographs which I promise to do something meaningful with this time. The writing process is enjoying various peaks and troughs – some days are extremely productive on other days creeping doubt comes for a visit distracting […]
