Fat Fridays: Who Really Cares About You? 20.05.2022

During my absence from work, I received several messages here and there. Some I received as people seeking a current topic to pass the time and ponder over a cup of tea or cigarette break. I mean, that is juicier than someone being on sick leave? Why is it that people feel the need toContinue reading “Fat Fridays: Who Really Cares About You? 20.05.2022”

Fat Fridays: No Time to Work Out? But I’ve just Finished a Netflix Season! – 13.05.2022

I would love to start classes at the gym, but I don’t have any time! Most nights, I turn on the TV, select Netflix and get comfortable on the sofa with a snack, usually plantain chips. Once I’ve finished a series, I crawl into bed during the early hours of the morning and feel aContinue reading “Fat Fridays: No Time to Work Out?

Fat Fridays: Colouring, Counselling and Conclusions – 06.05.2022

I have been struggling with my mental health over the last few months, and recently, it has become even more challenging lately. Things that were once grey in my life have now started to form colours, and if I’m candid about it, these memories are hard to process or even accept.      ‘I’m not sureContinue reading “Fat Fridays: Colouring, Counselling and Conclusions – 06.05.2022”

Fat Fridays: The User and the Provider – 29.04.2022

In my life exists some toxic people I never knew were toxic until I understood the types of toxicity that they have been injecting into my existence. For example, one person never calls me, and when I ring them, they complain that they’ve not heard from me for days! I’ll remind them they can contactContinue reading “Fat Fridays: The User and the Provider – 29.04.2022”

The Pressure to Complete and Reach the End – 27.02.2022

The Pressure to Complete and Reach the End  – 27.02.2022 I’ve been dithering for a few weeks now. I avoided completing a piece of work that was overdue by months.

Mindfulness: Thank You – 08.02.2022

Thank You Two words that many of us forget to use, especially when circumstances permit. It’s like you think it and fail to say it. Hearing these words make people feel appreciated in a world of chaos. Valued in a life of judgement and loved in a society that forgets they exist. Please remember toContinue reading “Mindfulness: Thank You – 08.02.2022”

Fat Fridays: But It’s Too Cold Outside – 07.01.2022

All week I’ve opted to use public transport to travel to work. Because I feel the icy wind on my face, I talk myself out of walking. While writing this post, I recognise it is a silly excuse. The festive period, blended with this ongoing pandemic, led me to spend most of my time indoors.Continue reading “Fat Fridays: But It’s Too Cold Outside – 07.01.2022”

Fat Fridays: What Fatso Heard? – 24.12.2021

What Fatso Heard? I’m not a ‘fan’ or a ‘traditional follower’ of Christmas! However, it is important to help those who are less fortunate than yourself. This help does not have to be financial; handing them cash into their hands. It could be signposting them to professional/charitable organisations or vice Versa. My point is thatContinue reading “Fat Fridays: What Fatso Heard? – 24.12.2021”
