I don’t know why but sometimes I explode a little and yell at my beloved Alphie (he is only 5½) so why do I do it? Just did it again! I know fully well I should not do it, that he doesn’t deserve it; he didn’t do something too terrible, just being a boisterous little […]

I have been tossing up whether to do further studies (to upgrade my teaching qualifications) or not. Strangely enough (it is to many anyway) I enjoy studying and very much enjoy extending my knowledge especially when it is related to the field I enjoy as much as teaching.

Of the rest of my life! Healthier, More Energetic, Happier Days and plenty of them! So many more to put so much more into both (Alphie’s and Mine) our lives! I have made a serious start! Looked at both my (i) End Goals and (ii) my Mini Goals and are still working on them but […]

Okay Okay you have seen many people nominate these exact same Goals before – and, many of them subsequently fail! BUT mark my words I am going to be the person to succeed. One of the secrets, I am told, is not to make goals too ambitious as you could very well end up being […]

Yep, missed my own deadline friends. I could lie – blame a family problem, say my car broke down or some other fanciful story but the truth is I just haven’t got around to finishing my few start-up goals. The truth of the matter is, I have hardly started. Embarrassing to say it but its […]
