3 ways to fight being just “OK”

I will never just settle for ok, not that we all need to go out and conquer the world, but “OK” is definitely not ok. I took up the Pole Vault at 32, not because this would advance my career, or make me more entertaining at dinner parties, (although I have to say it did!!) I took it up because I … Continue reading

I am 40. am I too old to?

Hell No !!  40 is now the new 30 for sure! I remember being in my twenties and older relatives in their 40’s and 50’s saying they definitely didn’t feel their age, quietly thinking to myself that they seemed in their 40’ and 50’s to me!! Now that I am a grown up, I can … Continue reading

Marrying second time around?

With all the talk about love this week, I thought I should give my spin on relationship advice. I wondered whether our ability to fall hopelessly in love fades as we get older, or is it that we do, but we just keep a sensible lid on things? As a mother of 3 all now … Continue reading

Why am I not happy?

Why am I not happy?

Why am I not happy? When I was little I figured that grown-ups could buy anything they wanted because they were adults, and this of course would make them happy. If I could have bought toys and sweets whenever I wanted I would have been happy! Well I was 5! As I got older I … Continue reading
