Yay, I made it to the gym this morning, the first time in about 10 days I think so know that I may ache tomorrow. Didn’t sleep that well as was anxious about going which seems ridiculous as I’ve been a member for over 7 years and as soon as I walk in it feels so familiar. Anyhow, I was determined to go despite not doing all the prep I needed to do last night so this morning wouldn’t be too frantic.

It was a uni day today so went straight from the gym to campus and showered there and then had my breakfast at my desk & checked my emails.

I was lecturing my 3rd years today for the last session of their current module and I decided to allow them to play with Lego and build something around the theme “winter”, they loved it and you could see the delight in their eyes as they found the right bricks and pieces to bring their creations to life.

I’ve got tonnes of Lego that I use in my business when working with clients as often I find it can help to break down barriers and helps people to open up about issues or challenges they are facing.

It got me thinking about the act of “play” and the famous quote from George Bernard Shaw – “We don’t stop playing because we grow old; we grow old because we stop playing.”

Over the last few years, I feel that I’ve been consumed with the lack and seriousness of life and kind of stopped playing, being child-like, seeing the light-hearted side of life which makes life full of colour and magic. Over the weekend I am going to make some small card reminders to be curious and child-like every day and put them around the house! I don’t want to go back to grey, I love colour!!

I'm 40 something gal living in the beautiful county of Lincolnshire, England. I run my own business which is a rollercoaster of good times and bad times but it is what makes life interesting. I'm a self-confessed foodie, which some people might think is bordering an obsession, but a good obsession I would say. I am a fully qualified food technologist, nutritionist and personal trainer and use my skills and knowledge to keep striving to better myself in all areas of my life. Despite being dyslexic I love reading both fiction and non-fiction books and usually have four or five on the go at any one time. I enjoy keeping myself fit and healthy by regular visits to the gym as well as enjoying open water swimming and sometimes I'm brave enough to swim without a wetsuit. This blog is all about my life and adventures.
