Elf The Musical Is A Hit!


Hey everyone

A few weeks ago I went to London for the Business Revolution two-day business seminar. I have yet to post some photos from that. On the 3rd day I had a play day and went to Thorpe Park by myself, and then to see Elf the musical in the evening. My train didn’t leave London until 11.45pm so I was able to see it without worrying about time. I bought the ticket on the day so it was more expensive than I would usually pay, but was well worth every penny. It was one of the best musicals I have seen in my life. Ben Forster (from Jesus Christ Superstar), who played the main character, was sensational and very convincing as Buddy the Elf. His love was played by Kimberly Walsh from Girl Band Girl’s Aloud. I would highly recommend this musical as a must see. After watching this musical you will be under no illusion that Santa really exists, and so does the magic of Christmas.

Break Through The Barriers Of Redundancy Book Trailer Coming Soon

Hi everyone

Great news, my Break Through The Barriers Of Redundancy To Get Back Into Work – An A-Z ‘How To’ Guide, Book Trailer, is coming soon to a screen near you.

We start filming the indoor scenes next Wednesday 20th of August and I am playing my own character. I am super excited. I know it’s going to be amazing and you will not have seen a non-fiction book trailer like it.

This photo is of the Quay close to my home and is one of the intended locations for part of my book trailer.

I am looking for extras to appear in the last part of my book trailer clapping and smiling as part of the audience, to be filmed on June 24th 12-1pm in Exeter, UK, at the Barnfield Theatre. Extras are to arrive by 11.45am. So if you live in the UK or are visiting the UK and can be in Exeter that day, let me know in the comments if you would like to attend. The trailer with be seen on YouTube, across social media, and maybe other media too.

I am still on a blog book tour; updating my websites and social media, and have to finish the printed version of my book. So I am maxed out with work. I know I haven’t visited many of your blogs recently and that’s something I am sorry about and intend to rectify in future months, just right now I am finding it hard to have time to post on here.

Stay positive and keep smiling.

Do you love the one you are with?


Hi Everyone

As you know, I like to be a bit quirky. In view of that fact, I am going to London for valentine’s to celebrate being single. I will be there from Wed 13th of February for two nights and I intend to have a blast. My motto is, if you can’t be with the one you love, or you don’t love anyone, then love the one you are with and if you are single, then that means loving yourself. You don’t need anyone else to make you happy, you can do that for yourself by:

  1. Affirming how wonderful you are – Write down a minimum of 20 positives about yourself. Try to read this out aloud on a regular basis. Reading five a day is good.
  2. Celebrating 5 successes every day. Write down anything from washing up to having an article published.
  3. Buying yourself presents – A writer’s journal. A book. Clothes. Perfume/aftershave. CDs. DVDs. Jewellery or whatever you want.
  4. Taking yourself out – For a meal. To the theatre. To the cinema.
  5. Going on holiday – To wherever you want, whenever you want. You could go to that writer’s retreat you have always wanted to visit.
  6. If you are feeling sad then comfort yourself. Give yourself a hug and say out aloud –  “Things will get better and you are coping very well.” Self-talk is a good thing.
  7. If anyone gives you a strange look because you are sitting on your own, simply by strong and happy that you are single and give them a smile. If you are confident that being single is right for you then why should anyone else question that.
  8. Write a book about the adventures of being a singleton – Watch this space, as there is a possibility that there may be a similar book from me in the future.
  9. Find what you were born to do and let no one stand in your way of achieving it. Being single is great because there is no one to hold you back and no one to think about but yourself.
  10. Educate yourself. Learning gives us knowledge and increases our sense of worth making us feel good. If you want to do a course, then go for it.
  11. Whatever makes you feel fantastic, do it and keep doing it.
  12. Praise yourself at every opportunity and if something goes wrong, then treat it as a learning curve to make you stronger. You will love yourself more for it.

In case you wonder what I am doing in London. I am going to see The Bodyguard Musical on Wed, to The Sea Life Aquarium and Mama Mia Musical on Thursday 14th February and to Paradise Wildlife Park on the Friday. I am doing all of these by myself. You can have just as much fun by yourself – Sometimes more because you can do what you love and what makes you love your life without the need for any compromises.

Write soon
