Bits & Pieces

At Vue Cinema Purley Way

Dear friends, how are you all? Did you have a great Christmas? Mine was fabulous, just the four of us doing our thing. It’s been a very restful one… is that not part of what this holiday is about – rest?

This morning, I’m off to a  Mini Mornings screening of Pan at Vue Cinema, but first here are a few things I want to share with you.

On Sunday, I went to the New Wimbledon Theatre to see Peter Pan with Hollywood star Verne Troyer, comedians Marcus Brigstocke and Jarred Christmas plus dance troupe Flawless. It was hahaha funny. If you still have some change left in your wallet and you want to treat yourself and family to this show, click here.

Are you getting ready to embrace 2016 tightly? It’s going to be a greater year than 2015 for all of us. 2015 was a marvellous year – I started this blog, went back to work, good health, the girls and John are doing well too, etc., etc. I’d like to do greater things in 2016; I have a huge dream and 2016 is the year to achieve most of them. If you have a big dream and don’t know where to start, I’d advise you to start with one of the books I’m reading at the moment The Success Principles by Jack Canfield.

This week, I also wrote on a serious topic about how the things our kids say that may hurt others. It may be a reference about their weight, height, hair, skin colour, uncool clothes, etc. etc. I’d like to know how you may have dealt with such issues.

I love Emma Gannon’s blog Girl Lost in the City. She’s one of those people who are making a difference to how we women think about ourselves. Her article on caring (and not caring) about what people think is a great read.

This TED Talks by Amy Cuddy is a talk that has helped me with the Imposter Syndrome I was suffering from. I want to recommend another TED Talks by Jennifer Senior called For Parents, Happiness is a Very High Bar. All these are great inspiring watch if you have a minute.

And finally, one of my favourite podcasts Dear Sugar by Cheryl Strayed and Steve Almond dealt with a topic I recently wrote about called What We Do Not Say About Motherhood. Their take on this topic is worth listening to.

Enjoy the rest of your day
