So, you might remember, I learned a little lesson a few weeks back.  I had a lightbulb moment and set new intentions.  (You can read the post here) Yep, well, old habits die hard it would seem. I know my priorities.  Being the avid goal-setter I am, I know what tasks I should be doing to ‘move [...]

A bit later than scheduled…. but we’re back from a weekend at the beach where we’ve been enjoying the sunshine (sun here in the UK believe it or not).  It really was family time at it’s best.  The only thing on the agenda was to just be.  How refreshing! Have you ever had that feeling [...]

Stuff happens, eh!  I had exciting plans for the week, and the English summer finally arrived… and then I came down with a chest infection and felt rotten.  Those sunny-day plans went out of the window. With two little ones there are no ‘sick days’ as a buffer.  I powered on (albeit in low-gear!) taking [...]

The ‘average Mo’ has about 10-20 transitions in their lifetime.  I reckon I’ve had my fair share in the past five years alone!  How about you?

If ever there was a week when I wanted to reach through the interwebs and give a big group hug, this week has been it. I’ve been so touched by messages that you guys have sent this week following my no-holds-barred admission of being in a bit of transition at the minute.  As it turns [...]

Things here feel in ‘transition’ at the moment. Have you ever had that feeling that you’re getting ‘tugged’ inside to make a change?   In the (almost) five years since we got married, and had our two boys, it’s been an ongoing transition… and I feel like the bigger transition has been INSIDE ME.    If you’re [...]

Back in my corporate days, I made my desk home.  I had a few subtle photos of family and friends on the backboard of my cubicle, and a happy holiday memory as my computer desktop background.  The vast (and noisy) open plan office with sealed windows didn’t really suit my introverted work-style.  The political game [...]
