The Kindness of Karma

Bali. An island teeming with beauty. While I could write endlessly about the exquisite natural attractions I visited on my recent trip, I want to write to you all about the beauty I found at the very core of the island, the beauty that makes this island my happy place. The [...]

It’s a Dog’s Life

When I got married to Andrew, 18 years ago, we used to fantasise about our future life together. Our dreams were inspired by River Cottage and featured an idyllic countryside location and some children, but largely focused on the animals that would live with us. We imagined hens, ducks, dogs and [...]

Small Acts of Kindness

If there's one thing I hate more than mornings, it's the daily rush hour commute. I know I can’t be alone in my sentiments, statistics from 2016 stated that in the U.K., approximately 3.7 million spend over 2 hours getting to and from work. That's a whole lot of people stuck [...]

Happiness 101

I have acquaintances who insist they have never seen me without a smile…. and many who believe I have a positive influence without even knowing it. My positivity comes from a deep-rooted and ingrained set of rules that I tell myself every time something creeps into my life that doesn’t make me feel [...]

Money and Happiness

Money and Happiness. It’s complicated. We’d all be so much happier if we had  more money…right? Well, as it turns out, that may not be exactly true. Research shows, that above a certain base level (the exact figure varies from study to study), there is zero correlation between money and happiness. [...]

Tuesday – A Happy Diary Day

TODAY I’M FEELING… I'm lucky, I’m generally a happy person.  Not a 'glass half full' or a 'glass half empty' kind of person. More a 'take the damn glass and drink whatever’s in it' kind of person. Head-of-Happiness-Sally often asks me how I'm always happy. So, I thought I'd try and figure that out [...]

Funny Ha Ha…

His Name Is Reo

  There’s a guy in my life right now who brings me endless joy. I only have to look at him and my heart implodes with love. Unfortunately it would be illegal for me to marry this guy because he’s of the canine variety and churches don’t allow dogs. Anyway – that’s a [...]
