Here's another feelgood video from 'Playing for Change - Peace through Music' - Enjoy !!


Here's another great song from the 'Playing for Change' people with another great message that I'd like to share:)

'Ukele's for Peace' video

I have been listening to some great 'feel-good' songs on videos from 'Playing for Peace' with such inspirational messages, check this one out, it talks about how children across the world are being trained to act as soldiers and use weapons!!  whereas the message in the video aims to get children laughing, singing and playing together with Ukeles.... well I know which I prefer children to be playing with ... how about you? :)

Well something didn't go quite right there, and the video didn't show up as I thought, hmmm! all this technical stuff gets a bit beyond me at times haha! but I'll keep trying and get it on eventually 'if at first you don't succeed...etc etc'  funnily enough it worked on my twitter site!!... ah well back later :)

Hello again, I went back to this post later, and managed to get the video on ... what did I say about if at first you don't succeed lol :)

'I've Got So Much Love' by The King Blues (Great Song)

This a great feel good song, my daughter Francesca introduced me to the music of The King Blues, and it always makes us feel happy whenever we hear it and we can't help but sing along to it at the top of our voices lol! I love the way people start to smile later in the video, quite infectious - check it out and enjoy :)

Almost there!
Hello everyone,

As it was Easter Sunday and a fairly nice day here in England (although had been raining earlier!) I decided I needed some fresh air and exercise.  So along with my husband Ged, daughter Steph and her boyfriend Carl and our faithful staffie Zak we headed off to Great Ayton to climb Roseberry Topping, a well known tourist site aound here, and although we only live about 20 minutes drive away, we (myself and hubby Ged) have never actually been up there before, a first time for everything eh!

Now I would normally consider this a daunting task, especially as I  am spending a lot of time sitting at my laptop with the lure of social media, and as much as I love this and find it fascinating, it is also very challenging to me, regarding internet technology, not one of my strong points haha! So I  thought I need to practice what I preach  - becoming 'Healthy, Wealthy and Wise' - focusing here on the 'Healthy' bit.  As all the new internet 'stuff' I am learning is certainly exercising my mind and brain, I realised, as I looked at the pictures I am adding here and there, what about the rest of me!!! so metaphorically speaking, if I can face the challenges of the internet, then I can climb any mountain...well a very large hill anyway!  and guess what ... I did it slowly and surely and very muddily ...mission accomplished,  as the pictures will show (if I can manage to upload them from my phone!!)

This was a very enjoyable and invigorating day spent with my family, and as I reflected on the day (especially as we approached and the air ambulance was just arriving, didn't find out why and hopefully no-one was seriously hurt) I felt like I had accomplished much, not just the physical challenge, but I felt like all my senses had been heightened and I felt really grateful and happy about my life and the plans I have :) it's great to work hard for yourself to achieve you goals and dreams, but it's also important to take time out and 'stop and smell the roses ...'

Hope everyone else had time to enjoy with their friends and family over the Easter break:)

I look forward to posting more articles during which I aim to inform, educate, empower and entertain - it's good to laugh :0

I hate being told what to do !!

I was just wondering 'why have I not read Kim Kiyosaki's book yet as we have a valid and valuable shared interest 'we hate being told what to do haha!' I have read many of her husband Roberts' books which have influenced me greatly, but now I feel that I owe it to myself as a fellow female entrepreneur to be greatly influenced by Kim !! so ... I shall do this and report back later, no doubt with some interesting and illuminating comments :)

A little inspirational poem

Hi everyone I made up this little poem of all these meaningful words see what you think !! my daughter is learning to play the ukelele, maybe she can make it into a song for me haha!



If your lives’ are full of stress
Then here’s my chance to impress
These are all words that mean a lot to me
How I act upon them, will enable me to live joyously
And to give freely and generously

So if I have your ATTENTION
Let my tell you about my VISION, MISSION and INTENTION
My dreams are driven by my PASSION
I’m filling my life with INSPIRATION and MOTIVATION
Most importantly, now that I’ve taken the ACTION
The life I choose by Design will be Mine
So make a DECISION to get out of CONFUSION and FRUSTRATION
And change your SITUATION.
