Change never happens immediately, there is always a difficult, confusing, and unsettling period where you are not quite at the new way, and at the old way. This hinterland is often where changes fail. We often think that whatever we wanted to do is not working and go back to the old ways of doingContinue reading “Transitions and how to cope”

A little story about how I shifted my view of the world.
As I keep talking about making changes in your lifestyle, and the importance of a plan and then having a clear reason why to get through the difficult days, I thought I might share my personal challenge. On Monday 10th of August I vowed that I would embark on losing weight down to a healthyContinue reading “A little story about how I shifted my view of the world.”
What are my plans for next year?
Over the past few blogs I have talked about how to create the right environment for change, and how to improve your chances of success. So I thought I would share with you what I am planning for the year ahead. To be honest most of these plans I have started already, but I amContinue reading “What are my plans for next year?”
August! An emotional month.
I always knew it would be an emotional one, especially with the background that is going on in my family (something I alluded to in previous blogs, but do not yet want to go into details). The month started with a bang, when Ben (the Bass player on the right in the picture above) andContinue reading “August! An emotional month.”
You know what? I might just be living my dream.

This involves developing a coaching and mentoring network throughout the organisation. This has taken me out of my comfort zone on a numberContinue reading “The next stage of my coaching career”
I found this poem in the back of my notebook. I cannot remember writing it. I did but I don’t know when. I know it is about foggy. It is a positive poem. If your foggy is troubling you, take heart you can rise. Morning Rise When the noise gets too much I rise, WhenContinue reading “Morning Rise”
So what is next?
2019 is nearly a week old. Last week I looked back on what I had achieved in 2018, so this week I thought I would look forward to what 2019 might have in store for me. The most pressing issue I have on my mind, is to further develop my connected living project. Well thatContinue reading “So what is next?”
Merry Christmas to all of you! Remember to have the Christmas that really plays to your values. Have the Christmas that sits comfortably, the Christmas that feels warm, cosy, familiar and natural. For me that means getting up at 6:30am and baking some bread, wearing the traditional Christmas morning outfit, my Christmas onsie. Whilst waitingContinue reading “Merry Christmas”
Encouraging Men into Nursing
Over recent years I have noticed fewer and fewer men choosing nursing as a career. In fact in my own speciality of Children’s Nursing we haven’t trained any men in training in Hull for a number of years now. There is so much men can offer as a nurse that it would be terrible toContinue reading “Encouraging Men into Nursing”
