One area of work was defining our morals.

Defining exactly what matters...

The weather. 
What other people think.
What other people do.
The past.
Getting old.
Cats.
What other people feel.
Pleasing everyone.
Our height.
Traffic.
What other people say.
Pain.
The cost of food.
What other people think of us.

I0 years ago today, it was the last day of my childhood, I was about to turn 18.

Although, there was no partying planned for my 18th birthday.

There was no alcohol.

  1. Fear

  2. Love

Fear is an integral part of our lives, it is a survival tool and allows us to run when we feel in danger; but when fear takes over our lives it makes us pull bac...

“I’ll be happy when …. I get to size 8”

“I’ll be happy when … I pass that exam”

“I’ll be a happy when … he tells me he loves me / I get my dream job / I travel the world / I buy that car” …

With a trip to the cinema for my son and I costing a minimum of £20, no snacks included; a day out to our favourite theme park leaving my pocket at least £150 lighter and a trip to the local pool costing £15, it is easy to confuse “fun” things with things that cost lot...

These little pecan bites are a great option when that mid afternoon chocolate craving  hits; and although with any nuts they needs to be portion controlled as part of a healthy diet, pecans are full of fibre, magnesium, selinium and potassium. My little boy in convince...

Fish fingers and chips is a childhood favourite for many of us; however this version is higher in vitamins, minerals, protein and fibre AND tastes a whole lot better than the freezer version, plus it is a sure winner with kiddies too.

As we are approaching the middle of Mental Health Awareness week my thoughts lie with what I hope for my son for the future; because although the gender divide is closing, it is still prevalent in various areas, emotions is one that needs to be addressed.
