For the "Nearly Mums" Today

A few thoughts for the "nearly" Mums today

Posted on 30th March 2014, updated photos 8 March 2018

Another Mother's Day dawns today. For the last couple of weeks I had promised, swore to, myself that I'd avoid the internet like the plague today. Before two weeks ago though my plan from last year was to have a gorgeous blog post all about the 'Irish Mammies' and celebrate the day in a flourish of happiness. As those of you who know me are aware I lost a child in 2000 through miscarriage and last November I found out my mother had left us all. 

International Women's Day 2018

International Women's Day 2018
Behind this woman here is a strong man. I wouldn’t be who I am without the love & support of one of the most courageous men in the world. 

It’s easy to knock men these days, not all are bad. Without the love of my life I wouldn’t be here to celebrate International Women’s Day 2018. 

When I lost my kidneys in my 20s my so-called women friends didn’t want to know. I no longer fitted in. 

Medicine Walk

Medicine Walk
Medicine walk, we have culinary medicine, food is medicine but exercise comes in many forms & a walk can be one of the best lifestyle medicines. 

Plus it has no serious side effects of pharmaceutical drugs. Medicines have their place in illness but they are not the solution to everything. 

It is the time we all woke up to the serious side effects. Always ask your doctor if he is prescribing any medication or procedure. 

My 5 Cornerstones of Healthy Living

Sleep, Nourish, Hydrate, Move, Rejuvenate
I often get asked what is this nutrition lark or how would you sum up nutrition. It is so vast a subject but for me in its essence the main elements, cornerstones are: Sleep, Nourish, Hydrate, Move (very important despite its small size in the graphic) and Rejuvenate. 

They are the best starting point when you want to improve your eating and lifestyle and confused where to start. Start with the basics,

1.      SLEEP

Imperfect Me is...just My Perfect


As I tumble along in middle age I'm realising more that you make the best of your life. 

When younger your competitive streak is the front runner. But some blows knock you so back that you don't realise you are still holding on to them.

Fire Up Your Spirit


There are times in everyone's life when the crap can take over and weigh us down.

At some stage, you have to find the courage to fire up your spirit and live again.

Learn from the mistakes, hurt and wrongs done to your and learn to live according to your rules.

It's been a rough few years in the last while for me and it can be difficult to see the light at the end of the tunnel.

If it was a bereavement, health worry or whatever. I no sooner got rid of one health worry then another one appeared to take its place.
