It seemed like so long ago, sitting in that bright lit classroom with that cool September breeze rolling in. In a room full of eleven and twelve year old total and utter silence. Our eyes were peeled to the screens as if the latest blockbuster featuring nothing but shocks was on. Oh how I wish […]


Every now and again we experience a lightbulb moment in life (as per the image above…..granted ours may be more figure of speech rather than literal) but it’s that little moment that we may or may not realise at the time that can totally alter our perception of a particular situation or person.

19Jan14

Remember that moment as a child when all you wanted to do was play with the big kids or you couldn’t wait till you were old enough to play with make up, no matter how disastrous those photos of that moment may be now? We all just wanted to be able to do all those […]
