Do you like this weather? It’s hot, hot, hot!

Recently I popped in to visit my mum (“I’m 76 you know!”). She plopped down in her chair with eyes closed, “I hate this weather”. “Oh” I said, “you hate the rain and wind and snow also?” Pause, with one eye open, “I like the spring”. Personally, I’m torn between which season I love the […]

Happiness Hot News!

Usually, when I tell people about my holiday they say “how lovely”. Recently I was lucky enough to go to Antigua, however, it’s gone down like a brick, with responses like, “good for you” or “it’s alright for some!”. A holiday gives time for quiet reflection.

Does my bum look big in this?

I am very lucky – I have a wonderful husband who tells me I look great regularly. Unfortunately for him I will only ask his opinion on what I should wear if I want to feel really confident, i.e. before I’m presenting to a class or going on stage, worse still if there’s no one […]
