About Me

My Photo
A few years ago I decided to start a new career as a performer. I used to be a biology teacher but couldn't face walking around in a white coat all day teaching children who didn't want to learn. Actually it wasn't so much the children as the system cause I think all children want to learn - they just don't all want to learn in schools. Anyway I now work as a Life and Executive coach. Work is perhaps not the right word because it never feels like work. I just love to see people grow and change. I love it when they peel of the layers of limiting beliefs and find their true self. And I make some great frends in the process. I've re-discovered my writing and have published two poetry books and now working on 2 CDs, a novel, a book of short stories and talking to someone about a collaoration on a film script. That should keep me busy for a whild. Oh and I do bellydance.

On Mother's Day my friend who had been with us on the Joseph McClendon weekend phoned to tell me her mother died that day. It was a cancer death . I was knocked for 6 and a week later still reeling from the shock. Why so many people with cancer?

The Next Step

Now that the pressure of building has eased there's a little more time for us to catch up on a few social things. The Glee Club on the 20th was a great night out - 5 tenants and 2 friends came (that's not to imply that the tenants aren't friends - they are - and they are great fun. After the sidesplitting laughter (the last act being the funniest - don't think it was just the wine), and the boogieing on down to the 'disco', we found an Indian restaurant and somehow didn't make it home till 3.45 a.m. The only downside was that we were entertaining in Kegworth the next day - late lunch at 2.30 so no lie in. It was fun though.

The big thing was this weekend. We went to a 3 day 'Law of Attraction' seminar in London run by a guy called Joseph McClendon the 3rd. He's Tony Robbin's head coach/presenter and he was amazing. Yes it was very American; lots of loud music, clapping, dancing, shouting, hugging, baring of the soul etc etc etc. BUT IT WORKS if you really get into it. It doesn't work as well if you sit on the edge and think too much about it. If you're prepared to make yourself look silly, let yourself go - its powerful stuff. I learned new techniques to work on manifesting; to let go of negative emotions; to take care of my health (stop eating sugar that feed the parasites).

Andrew said he felt taller (scary stuff at his height) and I certainly walked on air for at least some of the time. It was a totally rejuvenating experience. I would really recommend him. I think he's back in London in November. He's running a health retreat in Geneva in July but at 3000 euros each we passed on that one. Feel I know a fair bit about health anyway.

Made some new friends and got reacquainted with old ones. Ate in an Ethiopian restaurant for the first time - not impressed with the flat bread. It had the texture of lace and just dissolved in the mouth. May have been tastier if it was served warm, but a very friendly place. Lovely, lovely weekend!!
