Step Away from the Sofa!

It’s finally here! My manual on how to divorce your sofa and live your life to the full.

My New Book available on Amazon Kindle

I will admit to having watched a great deal of TV in the past myself (I ask for every single episode of Dr Who ever aired to be taken into evidence) and sofas are very comfortable places to be. However there is a big wide world out there full of wonders and no TV programme can ever substitute for a real experience, although Blue Planet II does come close! With that in mind I want to help as many women as possible to create incredible memories and a life well and truly lived.

I do hope you will give Step Away from the Sofa! a whirl and try even just one of my suggestions. That would make me very happy indeed.

Send me some pics, I’d love to see them

It Just Dawned on Me

A list of things that the last few months have taught me –

  • Instead of ruminating over something constantly get busy
  • Nobody really notices your limited wardrobe as long as you don’t smell and you hair isn’t greasy
  • You don’t need every camera gadget under the sun to take good pics
  • You don’t need every fancy bit of software, super duper high end laptop, 29 fountain pens, fancy ink to write a book
  • You don’t need the latest makeup, household gadget, new car to feel good about yourself

You do need –

  • Friends
  • A steady supply of coffee and biccies for said friends
  • Discipline in work when you’re self-employed
  • Curiosity
  • A library card
  • Warm quick dry socks and clothing
  • Rubber gloves to get cat hair off your clothing
  • Notebook and pen
  • Access to free wifi where poss
  • Water, veggies and fruit
  • Countryside and wildlife
  • Peace and a hug every so often
