Ralph and I have decided that we would create a blog post based on my post, “Dating Sites Are a Rip Off”. We would both write a “singles ad” with mine based on the comments of that post, and post them at the same time. Therefore, this post is from what people have said about me. I will say that Sandra from Quirky Books commented a while ago that I should use my blog as a platform to find someone. She said there are plenty of women out there who like me. That does sound uncomfortable saying that. Oh well, here goes.

After the suggestion of using the blog as a platform as a way of finding a date, or a prospective partner, I stated that I am worried about not receiving a response and embarrassing myself by having a post just sitting there gathering dust. I miss…

When others say you can’t – What do you say?


Hi everyone

When others say I can’t, I say I can, and I do it.

One of the key messages I took away from the Business Showcase South West, was that all successful entrepreneurs have one thing in common, they turn their ideas into reality when everyone says they can’t. This was clearly stated in Karen Brady’s speech.

If someone says you can’t do something that you want to do, what do you say?

I recently took this photo of a horse drawn carriage. A couple were inside the carriage, wearing their wedding outfits. Presumably, they had just been married.

What sprung to my mind were two things. Some people say you can’t have a horse drawn carriage for your wedding day, that’s not a reality. Well they certainly made it their reality. Second thing, some say you can’t outrun a horse and he has done just that.

When someone says you can’t, know that you can do anything you set your mind to.

I have a saying; there are no rules other than the ones you set for yourself. Dare to be different, embrace your quirky and do whatever you want to do. As my Grandma always says; there is no such word as can’t. She is my hero and a true inspiration.

T-wit Twoo – Are you a night owl too?


Hi everyone

I am about to go to another networking event at Colston Hall in Bristol and need to get changed into a dress for it.

image

Whilst I was waiting for my food in Tampopo, I took this photo of me. Why do I usually always look more awake at night? Because I am a night owl and come alive at night. I prefer to write at night because that is when I am more focused, creative and can think straight.

What about you? Are you a night owl too?

Business Showcase South West


Hi everyone

Just a quick update. I am currently at the Business Showcase South West event in Bristol. I am networking for my http://www.beatredundancyblues.com site and my new Break through the barriers of redundancy book. I am listening to Keynote speakers at the moment.

I think I look a bit tired. I haven’t had much sleep in the last couple of weeks because of working on my Break through the barriers of redundancy book and fitting everything else in.

Have you ever brought your thoughts to life?


Hi everyone

When I took a year out of retail in 2012, I learnt a lot of new concepts. One was the idea that what we have in our minds, can manifest itself in reality, and that we are what we think. I may have heard of this before but never really paid attention to what it meant.
image

Sometimes, I have the uncanny nack of being able to think of something and then an opportunity presents itself for me to be able to carry out that thought. For example on Sunday 9th March, I was returning home from work and I felt like a drink of smoothie or orange juice. Almost immediately after this thought, I was drawn to deviate from my usual walk home to go into my local Co-op. I tied to resist but felt compelled to go in there. Bingo! There it was, a smoothie made with oranges and various other ingredients, reduced from £1.05 to 35p and it was the only one left. So I bought it and drank it straight away.

A couple of years ago, I had previously been thinking about my e-Book store and how I would learn to create an e-Book. Although I wasn’t thinking about this at the time, I walked past WH Smith and felt compelled to go into it. I had no idea why, my sixth sense was just telling me that I needed to. My mind was telling me to go to the magazine isle and to look at the magazines, but I had no idea why and then – Bingo! There was a small book all about self-publishing with e-Books. Incredible. I have these moments and feel blessed but sometimes they can also be a little scary.

Have you ever thought of something and it has become a reality, or an opportunity has presented itself to you because of your thoughts?

I have 9 pages of amendments left to do for my Break through the barriers of redundancy book. I then need to give it the once over and get someone to check it before it is published.

Next week I am at the Business Showcase South West and Only Colston networking events in Bristol.

Enjoy your thoughts and your week.

How do you refresh your writer’s mind?


Hi everyone

I have had to venture out of hibernation today, to do some food shopping for me, Daisy, Cinnamon, Snuggles and Snow.

After being indoors for the last few days, working on my Break through the barriers of redundancy book, it is good to get out and about to refresh my writer’s mind.

Being the quirky person I am, I am currently sitting in front of Exeter Cathedral, eating sugar free ice-cream in the cold and wind.

I also enjoy going to the cinema to refresh my writer’s mind. What do you enjoy doing to refresh yours?

When are you going to hibernate?


Hi everyone

I am now in hibernating mode to finish my Break through the barriers of redundancy book.

image

I finished re-working and amending the Preface and Introduction today. I now have a total of 9 days off from my day job, and go back to work on Wednesday 2nd of April. I am determined to finish my book by then. I went out shopping for food and Mothers Day presents today. Now it’s time to batten down the hatches and have what I call ‘cave days’. I will be less active in the blogosphere until the 3rd of April.

When are you next hibernating?
