Reviewing Christmas

Reviewing Christmas

This is my heartfelt review of a life changing Christmas Day experience. This is what happened. My Christmas morning started about 7am. There are no little children in this house to wake me; no teenagers to summon from their beds. All my preparations paid off and I was quickly on the road to a friend's home.

Do they start from again or just continue on...Our birth dates are a part of our modern day identification....Name, Continue reading

A long and winding road….

A long and winding road….

To borrow from the Beatles hit I've got to admit it's getting better  A little better all the time  I have to admit it's getting better .... (Lyrics) and yes, the title of this post is from another Beatles song.... For me, a long and winding road is the road back to full health. There have been fascinating detours, odd stop overs and I've been at my bloodhound-best as far as Continue reading

Living The Carpenter’s Law

Living The Carpenter’s Law

Some of you may be aware that at the beginning of 2013 I turned myself into a social media consultant and I was rather busy. I found that life had given me the skills and I find great satisfaction as I assist others – mainly women - in making their dreams come to life. Particularly in walking beside the dreamer as they take their idea from concept to launching their business. Late in the year Continue reading
