Merry Christmas, Ya Filthy Animal.

The filthy animal being in this case my mental health.

I adore Christmas, but it can be so... extra.

Don't get me wrong - it is such a deliciously magical time of year and I eagerly anticipate it. I love catching up with everybody, the food, the twinkling lights, the cheese... but it can easily become just too much.

Surviving Kitchen Renovations

As Project New Kitchen is now drawing to a conclusion, I thought I would share with you some pointers I've discovered along the way to help maintain some semblance of order and normality with family life.

So you think you can't run?

You can.

You absolutely can.

I spent 34 years believing I wasn't ableto run and here I am training for a marathon.

If I can do it, anybody can.

Because after all, the body achieves what the mind believes.

And if you tell yourself you CAN do it, then trust me you WILL.
