# Though my family and close friends say it would be far more entertaining with a video-camera* in the “real world”, rather than in cyberspace!)
* By the way, do they still make them in today’s ever-faster changing world..or is it all done with mobile phones?

(get with the times now,”luddite”* c – it should be a smart phone)

“total non-techno” c (who doesn’t possess a mobile phone, after a rather eventful’ experience some years back, whilst trying to walk, talk and chew gum at the same time) #

Sometimes walking away from a person, a job or a title is absolutely the strongest and most courageous thing we can do. Choosing happiness can be the most difficult decision we ever make.

I have a best friend, as most of us do. Heather and I met in 1998 when she was…

Mental Health Day Hospital


I was a nurse at an amazing Mental Health Day Hospital (DH) where patients were actively involved in planning a timetable of evidence-based therapeutic activities to support them in their recovery before being discharged as an in-patient.
