Last Rounds

Last Saturday I said goodbye to my friend Geri who is moving back to the UK. I adore Geri, she is such a kind and giving person with an amazing heart. I first connected with Geri when I saw a notice of a course she was conducting and I reached out to say I was …

Butterfly Mode

I recently mentioned that Norm and I are tentatively starting to entertain again. That decision seemed to open up the doors of the universe as we are now getting so many plans our diary is back to back. That is too much of an extreme for me as I also need downtime to recharge but …

Home On My Doorstep

Do you ever have one of those mornings where so many annoying things sequentially occur that you feel you might be better off going back to bed and starting over later? I have had two in one week. The first was last Sunday. I woke up in the early hours because I was hot and …

The Gauge

I was thinking about how we gauge 'success'. Is success an individual measure we use to determine what meets our own criteria or is it a universal concept? But what if the tick-list that others apply does not contain the same things which make you feel like you have attained success? We often lose sight …

Disassociated

As it was a 4 day work week it flew by, especially with work and life being so busy. Luckily little Panda is much better and that has been our primary stressor. On Friday Panda went to the vet for his end of meds check up and they have decided to keep him on antibiotics …

From Miracles to Nothing Special

Last Saturday I had a text message from our friend Mark asking what time he should come and collect Finn. It was only then that I realised we had completely forgotten that we were booked to go out for another Restaurant Week dinner to Gambas Seafood Bistro. I have been craving seafood for months and …

On the Block

I finally feel like I am comfortable being around other humans again, well, as comfortable as my introverted self ever gets. It may be just plague exhaustion (yes that is a real thing) or maybe I am being overly optimistic that the virus is mostly under control, but we are starting to entertain. Last weekend …

Creating My Reality

One of the concepts of my 12 week coaching session was that we need to be able to imagine the changes we wish to happen in our lives. We wrote down what we wanted to change, such as how much weight we wanted to lose during the 12 weeks, what fitness goals we wanted to …

Last Drops

Last weekend the weather was absolutely stunning and we made the most of it, trying to squeeze out the last drops of sunny fun. This week has been cold and the last few days have been really windy. Last Saturday I cleaned the house. Those who know me may have fainted at this statement as …

Finding Balance

This week it is starting to feel like winter is here (yes I have said that a few times only to have the heat return). It has been alternating between hectic winds, rain, drizzly mist, and cold. Now that we have an air-conditioned bedroom I keep the air on year round and set at 18℃. …
