50 … omg

So today is my 50th birthday. And l’m not sure l take it very serenely… l might well be over-reacting but … for now I’m not so deliriously happy about it… I’m in the process of changing my whole life, going from: a monthly bleeding to a full on menopause … two kids at home to no kids at home a 9 to 5 job to a full time biz a well mastered profession to a a brand new one a steady if not abundant income to ???? a social media presence dedicated to “fun” to a professional use of social media which involves regularity an consistency and … feels… Read More

Am I super trendy ? Or just unknown and burying my head in the sand ?

So … I sent my second ever newsletter three days ago … To ALL the lovely peeps on my mailing list … ALL 18 of them … 10 of them being my family and even myself (to check how it looks and feel some pride…) Of course not many reactions… I considered sending myself a congrats email … What’s my problem ? Well I’m trying to build an online biz here … and EVERY coach and/or marketing specialist will tell you … YOU NEED A MAILING LIST … YOU HAVE TO BUILD A MAILING LIST … (thank you Joanna Hunter) Four months into my biz, I have a beautiful branded… Read More

What do you choose to look at ?

So I am an upcycling artist. What ? Explain please … That means that I create artworks and beautiful artistic objects using a lot f things YOU would have trashed, binned or discarded … (at least I choose to think so! Go and have a look on my shop page or here  for the artworks and shoot me a comment if you agree … or not) I am also on a path to more abundance in my life, to manifesting more love, health and success in my life… More about that some other time, suffice it to say … I love you Denise Duffield-Thomas … I love you too Gay… Read More

I’m in Japan… Seriously ???

So I’m in Japan. And my “almost coach” Joanna Hunter said… Have your tribe live vicariously through you…. take them to Japan with you … Post about your trip, your food, etc … So I decided I would. Here are a few beautiful photos of Japan … a magnificent though tiny Japanese garden … I loved walking around it … There was even a blossoming tree (might well have been a cherry tree!!) Beautiful isn’t it ? I am really impressed at how different things are over here … … So I’m a big fat liar, on top of being lazy and old ! These photos were taken on March… Read More

Forgive, forgive and when you’re done … forgive again…

So … as you may have read earlier on this blog, dear reader, I’ve spent the best part of 2017 forgiving. Forgiving what ? Well pretty much everything I could think of … Any wrongs that I felt had been done to me to you, dearest reader, to the whole wide world for that sake… Forgiving who ? Well again, pretty much anyone I could think of, from my parents (classic shrink stuff!) to yours, lovely reader, to the dishonest politicians (we have quite a nice bunch of them in France at this minute!) to the greedy bankers … Indeed I lately discovered (no, I know, I’m not the first… Read More

Blocks … F* off!

So I can’t breathe. I physically can’t, I mean. I have not been able to breath though my nose for more than a year. I have a polyp in my left sinus. A big one. And I cannot breathe. I’ve seen various doctors. Some want to operate … They also say that any operation would not prevent it from coming back… and we might need to operate again … every six months to a year. I already wasn’t in favor of an operation but that got me even more worried … So I went to see other doctors … to see if I could have another opinion … a different… Read More

Why you shouldn’t, even if you can !

So… I have a cleaning woman.  I have had one for years.  She comes once a week and whirlwinds through the house, lifting the crap and the energy ! “Oh my God, but you’re not making that much money, how do you justify that expense ?” My usual answer was … “But you know I run a B&B with my husband, the house is nearly 1000m², I can’t do that all by myself and work outside, and handle the kids, and do the books, and …” Today I just answer… I’m OK sacrificing some other things to have a cleaning woman. She is very nice, I pay her a very… Read More

Sorry Ostara ! I forgot and went to my osteopath …

So … I forgot Ostara … the Pagan festival of  spring … In January, I’d planned the whole of the year, organizing blog posts and tutorials and rituals, both irl and online, according to the Moon, the Sun (thus the Pagan festivals) and the Holy MF Spirit … And here we are, March 20th … and I completely forgot Ostara … Not only did I just forget to write about it, or film a video prior to it … I just plainly and basically also failed to remember to celebrate it ! Instead I made an appointment to go see my osteopath and have my whole body visited for contractions… Read More

Push and pull … Springtime’s back ! What are you telling me now Mama Gaia ?

So if you had any doubts… Springtime is here…And the urgency of life flowing back up, up, up, up like the sap is soooo obvious and calling us (in the northern hemisphere!) to action, action, action, action … In the South west of France where I live, we are being bombarded with green, flowers, sun, birds, rain and generally … life! I love winter because it is a break, an interior voyage, a retreat … but … every year I can’t wait for it to end … Then springtime literally attacks … around here you can almost hear the plants growing, the trees stretching and the flowers blooming all over… Read More
