Return of the blog…..

So in my head I have that song from the 90s, “Return of the Mac” as I write this…. except that noone knew I’d be back as noone probably knew I went away.  Well I have been away for almost 18months.  The reasons for this are varied. I’ve launched an […]

Something New Day 2: Publishing a photobook


So my attempts to change my life by changing one thing every day almost had a setback today as soon as they started when I woke up feeling incredibly unwell.  In fact I was so ill I had to forgo my Father-in-law’s birthday and felt horribly guilty for upsetting my […]

New Dawn

I have decided that I am sick and tired of my life staying the same.  What is it that Einstein said and my husband keeps reminding me about: “The world as we have created it is a process of our thinking. It cannot be changed without changing our thinking.”   […]
