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.

Not going to Barbados

Just when I thought it couldn't get any worse - it just did. Within the last month another friend died. I went to his funeral on Friday. I say friend but in fact he was someone I grew up with like a brother; the son of my second mom.

A month ago I booked a break to Barbados - needing some sun and a change of scene. I've been chomping at the bit to go - only to find today that the flight is cancelled. I've been willing it to happen but alas to no avail. The worse thing though is that the airline kept telling me the flight was still on and to make my way to the airport. I had everything packed. Even had all my toiletries in one of those little plastic bags I detest. Then I checked the website and it said all flights out of Gatwick cancelled. It's been a tortuous rollercoaster. I'm going to have a very large glass of wine and go to bed. Tomorrow will look different. I guess one plus is that I get to fit inanother bellydance class and not have to miss too many classes. BOO Hoo Hoo!!!
