Weekly Words 9th January

I don’t necessarily mean talking less (that’s unlikely to happen), but rather I want to experience more silence, and listen better. This world can feel so full of noise - TV, traffic, radio, intercoms, chatter. Being very [...]

This year for me has been about ‘coming home’. Or to be more precise ‘coming home to love’. How can this be in a year of such turmoil, tragedy, sadness, upheaval and change? My answer is that even more so this has brought me back to love. Or perhaps more accurately reminded me that [...]

My Archie

On paper it was not a good idea, as many a friend advised. A dog? Really? How will that work out in your high-fuelled, traveling, work-filled life? Of course there were more who thought it a good idea. I’d grown up with multiple Labs, I adore dogs, oh and I’m a [...]

Nothing Could Be Better

I’m a freelancer, so I often end up working in different places. At the moment I’ve got a bit of a commute to my job, and sometimes this can be exhausting. After a full day at work, I’ve still got to catch a train, wait on a platform, get on another train, [...]

My Best Bits

I’m leaving! I’m writing this blog with just 5 working days left with Sally here at the Happynesshub in our children’s television and emotional wellbeing bubble. What a delight it has been. For the past 15 months (minus the couple I was in India), I have learned more than I ever [...]
