Weekly Words 27th February

This third lockdown has perhaps felt the hardest of them all for many. But I think this moment, on the precipice of spring and on the road out of lockdown, is a great one to reflect on the good things that have sprung from lockdown. So, I asked the team at Happynesshub HQ to [...]

Weekly Words 20th February

This week, Tim D drew my attention to a little gem that featured on the evening news. A recent study conducted by Travelodge has indicated that the pandemic has in fact increased levels of kindness! Could you imagine nicer news? (Perhaps, maybe an end to the pandemic I hear you cry!). The areas [...]

Weekly Words 7th November

This morning I found myself dancing around my house, semi-clad, Archie Archibald quick-stepping along. Yet this was a far cry from where I was just a week ago. It has been seven days of so much change my end. My hair being just the start… As I sat in the hairdressers, bleach bleaching, [...]

Kindness Cures

It’s been 7 days of more hospital appointments, growing weakness and at times, I can’t deny, feeling a tad sorry for myself.  For any of you out there who have been chronically unwell – mentally, physically or both, you will know it can be isolating, frightening and make you question, question [...]

A Day with Jeff

It’s Friday night… the candles are glimmering, the water is steaming and my bath is making headway in doing the much-needed job – saving me from my week’s exhaustion and self-questioning. Another seven days of full-on work pressures, personal challenges and the usual navigation of life’s ups and downs in today’s [...]

The Silent Man

Silence is Bliss. It’s not a phrase that’s greatly resonated with me throughout my life. I grew up in a busy and bustling house, surrounded by family, 7 dogs and multiple other two and four-legged friends. Silence was rare, and other than when I was revising and wanted real quiet (much [...]

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 [...]

Here to Help

I think human beings are innately kind. Indeed, research tells of toddlers readily helping others to achieve their goals... the altruism within them is a natural instinct. So why is it that we hear of such atrocities around the word? And headlines shout that we in Western society nowadays are ‘all [...]

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 [...]
