To The Rescue!

We got three new additions to the menagerie today: Po, Phasma and Penguin. They are ex-battery chickens who had reached the end of their useful life so were due to become cat or dog food. Poor little buggers only stopped laying for a brief period as the moult but, any pause in egg production and they’re outta there! What a … Read More

Challenge Your Long-held Beliefs

Something we are seeing a lot of lately is the phenomenon of Cognitive Dissonance. Brexit. Trump. Creationism. Religion. Terrorism. People are not only refusing to accept new evidence or listen to different points of view, they double-down on their own position, regardless of what they are presented with. Take Trump, for example. Most rational people thought it was a bad … Read More

Accepting Your Limitations

When I was in my early twenties I decided the following: 1) That I was going to win a Grammy 2) I was going to win an Oscar 3) I was going to be Mr Olympia Not only had I decided on those three things, I determined that they would be within the SAME YEAR! Nothing like setting your goals … Read More

Time Travelling

Do you ever time travel? I do. I’ve done it all my life. Of course, I am not talking about time travel in the sci-fi sense, but the time travelling that I suspect most of us do – or at least have done – to our detriment. Let me explain. I first time travelled as a child when the school … Read More

A Different Kind Of Strength

I love Yoga. There, I said it. I wasn’t expecting to and the whole reason I started to do it was because I was slowly becoming a living statue. In fact, to make sure I didn’t back down from starting, I spent a bunch of cash on some of the paraphernalia to invest myself in it. From the very first, … Read More

Declutter Your Life

Something prompted a bit of a cleaning spree recently (the visit of Vikki’s mum) and, like most cleaning sprees, it concentrated on surfaces. Sparkling sides, polished cupboards, hoovered floors. Lovely. But what about all that crap that lurks behind those cupboards? The wardrobe that is practically bursting with clothes? The chest filled with DVDs… That last one? Guilty. To fit … Read More

My Gap Year

It’s a little later than most, but I have come to the conclusion that 2017 is my long overdue gap year. I didn’t realise it was going to be when January 1st hit and, to be honest, I had no reason to think that this year would be any different to previous years, filled with lots of hard work reaching … Read More

Open Minds Wanted

I spent a large portion of my life being closed-minded. I made my decision about something, someone, and stuck with it. Not only did I stick with it, I may have mocked or ridiculed. We are all, to a larger or lesser degree, closed-minded. Seems to me that we are born that way, probably some kind of protective mechanism dating … Read More

Give Me A Moment

Life is made up of moments: indefinable parcels of time in which an event is captured. A moment isn’t bound by the constraints of seconds, minutes or hours – it is it’s own thing. And a lot can happen in a moment. Life-changing events. You can fall in love, break an arm, break a promise…discover gold! Moments are important. We … Read More

Zen And The Art Of Eating

I am not religious. For more than twenty years I have frowned upon, scorned and mocked religion due to the misery it causes around the world and the billions of people that seem to me duped by ancient scrits. However, there has been one religion whose principles I naturally lean toward with a philosophy that appeals to me: Buddhism. After … Read More
