sustainable eating

I love food! I love eating food, watching programs about food, reading about food…you name it. If it’s food-related, I’m there! Food is a wonderful thing. It brings people together, informs you about different cultures, expands your horizons, and induces wonderful memories from days gone by. We cannot live without food; our bodies require so much of it to keep us well and strong, managing a delicate balance of nutrients. And yet for so many…

It’s January. The start of a new year. How’s yours going so far? Has it been busy? A struggle to get going? Or has it been positive and encouraging?

A slow first week back, getting the cogs turning again; starting something new to expand my…

give a gift of love

If you were to be asked what the true meaning of Christmas was, what would you say? Family? Food? Presents? Charity? Giving? Or maybe love? Love is possibly the word that would most often be used to describe Christmas. Love pretty much covers all the bases with the aforementioned meanings. We love many things that the Christmas season affords us. But do we actually understand what love is and what it means to love? Unfortunately,…

Another year over…that’s how the popular Christmas song goes. And we’re nearly there again! Entering, as we are now, into the month of December, we begin to take stock of the year that has been and prepare for the holiday celebrations that close the year off.

walking for pleasure

Let’s be honest. Sometimes getting motivated to exercise can be a real struggle. I know for me it is. I’m not naturally inclined towards it.

how to celebrate loved ones

Life gets busy. Am I right? So easily we can be swept up in everyday tasks, or consumed by a bigger challenge. Often we can forget to really appreciate the people closest to us and don’t take the time to really celebrate them. Usually, we take the time on special days like birthdays and anniversaries, but what about the everyday? Should we be more deliberate each day to celebrate the people we love most? Having…

the poppy

I find it utterly amazing how the frail beauty of a little wildflower can capture the hearts and minds of so many. And yet, every November on the 11th day, of the 11th month at the 11th hour, we use this little flower to help focus our thoughts. We remember back to all the conflicts since WW1 when the poppy was first adopted as a powerful symbol. This little flower, blood-red and delicate is the…
