Share in the Community

Community spirit varies greatly, from country to culture, areas to individuals. And it differs across generations and ages. One thought that remains universal, however, is that we human beings are social beings (whatever our personality type) and that we are born to support each other and connect. Yet all too often [...]

21-Days of Malaysian Happiness

Malaysia was the first port of call on my month long travelling sabbatical. 6 days at a retreat to energise, re-connect and rest - and then Asia here I come! At least that was the plan. More than 3 weeks later, I am in the skies above Singapore, leaving the lovely [...]

Millefeuille Musings – Part 2

A while ago I wrote a blog about Millefeuile– or more to the point about how layers of stress can build up and it’s these multiple layers that make life hard to cope with. I then shared how kind friends and family had helped me take these stresses away, slowly and [...]

The Magic of Mermaiding

‘I’m going to be a mermaid’, I announced at the table to my friends. They couldn’t suppress their giggles. ‘You’ve done a lot of eccentric things in your life, but this is reaching new levels,’ they laughed. I smiled knowingly. I had a deep, embedded feeling this would be special. Recently, [...]

It’s 6:30 am…

It’s 6:30 am. And I’ve woken early on my day off. It’s my birthday! And Archie is fast asleep downstairs. As I peer out of the window and breathe in the beautiful colours in the sky, it feels like time for change and a new year ahead. I ponder on the [...]

Flourishing Together

It’s that very funny time between Christmas and New Year. The ‘January’ sales have started (even though January hasn’t) and, for many, this is a time to spend with loved ones, whether they are near or far. And so, as a little follow-up from the blog I wrote a couple of [...]

Working on Ilana

It’s the most wonderful time of the year!!! Can you tell I really like Christmas? Well, I actually just really like December. London always looks so pretty (the Oxford Street window displays are at their finest), there’s that frosty bite in the air, there are decorations everywhere and people just become [...]

Young? Old? Be Happy!

Greetings from Swansea Hubbers! Over the past few months I’ve been working on location in this Welsh city filming our latest show for CBeebies (watch out for details next year!). Over the course of my time here, there has been a reoccurring theme cropping up - the older generation. It started [...]

Don’t Spill Your Coca-Cola

Ilana and I are sitting in the car on the way to Swansea… we’ve had a very ‘challenging’ week (as one of my good friends would say!). In fact, the way I’ve been describing my week is ‘horrid, horrendous, horrid’. My mum fractured her pelvis (yet again!), and has been in [...]

Choosing Happiness

Over the course of the last few months I have gotten into a ‘low-mood rut’. I started to find that my mood was regularly dipping, I often felt overwhelmed, I was failing to get much enjoyment out of things that used to make me happy. And then, the other week, this [...]
