Old bird and a boat…..blog 40 only 60 to go ….. sorry

After yesterdays lack of energy today has been a different kettle of fish. Back to firing on full cylinders. I am using technical terminology in the hope that I can use my brain more and not turn into mush.

What is the secret to my re-newed energy ?

A good night’s sleep, my foot didn’t keep me awake plus Grapefruit I am craving Grapefruit – so wierd, but look at the nutritional value … it could be I just need a bit of what’s in a grapefruit ? Who know’s but can it be helping?


Today was a boaty day, Liv came on board and the Simon when he finished golf and off we went – I had an audience as I pulled the boat “Amy Belle” out of the mooring. Perfectly turning her to face the exit of the marina… I saluted my teacher the Great John Gibbons.. who I am sure was very proud of his protege – out of the marina I went, not a stumble or a bump, more people appeared on the bridge… “Gongoozerlers” we call them…. I waved a triumphant wave and turned the boat towards the West. The sun was shining, the water was calm, the wind a Easterly breeze and blue sky. Little ducks were swimming by and I believe my mind was totally clear of worry and stress.

The Canal is my true love, although I am partial to the Med and the Caribbean also !!!

I felt even happier than this lady in the Netherlands pulling her boaty

The Leeds Liverpool Canal is a beautiful thing. It changes dramatically with the seasons and today it was abundant with beautiful yellow iris, ferns, swooping Swallows and Fox Gloves and a little water vole !! Cute, It reminded me of walking from Lollies bridge back to our home on the canal bank at Jacksons bridge in Lydiate my first home. My sister Alison and I were educated in the local flora and fauna, Fox Gloves were precious and growing along the canal and a weed called Mother Die, which is a gorgeous perfectly symmetrical white collection of tiny flowers on long stems and lush foliage – I really don’t know why it’s called that… but I’m sure you could make a good soup out of it !!! (don’t worry mother, I’m not going to try and poison you !! lol).

Growing up on the canal bank was lovely, I left it too soon. But I understand my yearning to be on it and by it.

It has a serenity, a peace, a message to me. It reminds me that I can flow with life. I have no need to struggle against the tides of time, I can just BE.


I am happy on this tiller… the movement is easy, the direction is sure. There is no need to hurry because “All is well”

I am thinking that after the Minds Of Steel I would like to work from my boat doing my coaching – I think it would be a good place to be. But for now, I will just enjoy the moments.

Do you know yet what you want from life?

Do you know yet that as soon as you really know what that is … you can get it?

Please hurry up and decided the life you want – NOW IS A GOOD TIME TO DO THAT.

I have decided floating on a boat is good for me? But what do you want?


Don’t try to push your thoughts, go somewhere quiet and relax your mind. Be super grateful for all you have and see what flows into your life.

Someone commented that the best thing for tiredness was to meditate yesterday – not even meditation could lift that feeling – although I think it was my resistance to meditating, I was feeling annoyed with the tiredness and that’s not good

… Until you feel this feeling you don’t really get it. If it’s your day to feel rubbish … then think about what you feel like eating? Is it spinach? Lemons? Brazil Nuts????? Listen to your body and rest your mind – get to bed early and sleep. (Oh I had a milky drink before bed too) Triptophan !!! Learn more about yourself and pay attention to your nutrition –

So 40 blogs done only 60 to go !!! sorry haha

Anyway, I think the menopause is making me a bit more busty !!! If only we could see ourselves as roundy and glorious during this phase of precious life that many do not get to enjoy.

Hot and gorgeous, Hippy and wonderful, roundy and fabulous – wise and wicked, age 12 in the head and 56 in reality.. what is real? and who actually cares?

Yes we have important things to talk about and discuss etc. But lets get our 12 year old selves back occasionally. Let’s paint a pine cone and hang it from a tree. Let’s paint a picture that we have not clue what it’s meant to be ??? who cares about prim and proper ???

Fun and Frivolity mixed with Wise old bird and bonkers behaviour.. I don’t mean go and take drugs…

Although it was amusing as we passed a boat Simon shouted “I can smell Weed “…. “I want weed” “share the weed” !!! REALLY SIMON????? REALLY???

Liv and I were trying to gag him as we sailed past the Scaracen’s Pub !!! Maybe there is more to this man than I realise !! however I won’t be smokin’ any pot anytime soon (but never say never)

So on that note before I get into real trouble … fondest farewell and enjoy your evening.

The lawn is being mowed so I’m off to Weed………
