The Latest

Hey lovelies!

Firstly I want to thank those of you who commented on last weeks post.  I was really excited to hear that lots of you have been inspired to start cutting out sugar, even on a small level, which is fantastic!  Small changes can make a big difference.  Some of you had already started your journey – well done!   I so love hearing from you and that what I am writing is helpful and enjoyable.

Now on to today’s post.  If you know me or read my blogs regularly you will be aware that I am always doing something new! It could be some kind of craft (although I haven’t been doing a lot of that lately), a project, something to the house or a personal endeavour.

Something that I started last year was volunteering at a hospice not far from me.  I was doing some creative things with patients that came in for day care.  Due to lots of different factors that didn’t work for me, but it was a very positive experience and I met some lovely people.  I can’t remember if I mentioned in a previous post about it but to start with I felt a little bit like I had failed.  I then realised that trying does not mean failing, it just didn’t fit for me and that’s ok, it’s not trying in the first place that’s the problem.

So onwards and upwards as they say.  I’m still doing Fridays as a volunteer at the reception of my church, which is also a community centre. If you want to check it out the web address is www.eastgate.org.uk

I have also started doing a little cleaning job once a week which is handy for some extra money and the house is so lovely so is a real pleasure to clean.  I’m not looking to do any more cleaning than that though other than what needs doing here!

The most exciting new development for me is that I have started a course in life coaching.  The one I am doing at the moment is like a mini introduction to life coaching to see if it really is something I want to pursue, which I most definitely do.  Next week I am enrolling onto the full life coaching course that will mean I can start practising as a coach at the end of it.  I should be able to finish it within a year as I’m not working.  I am so excited.  This feels like the ‘thing’ I have been looking for for a long time.

The aim of a life coach is to support his or her client, helping them indentify and realise their dreams and ultimately living their lives to their full potential.  What an incredible opportunity, to help people be the best version of themselves doing what they love.  Sounds right up my street!

So what I want to know is what are you up to?  What is going on in your world?  Do you have any plans for the Easter holidays?

Looking forward to hearing from you

Much love and happy Easter

    Hi Kate,
    Love keeping up with your blogs. I started my attempt with sugar reduction in my 20’s. I stopped taking 4 teaspoons of sugar in my coffee and just had a couple of biscuits instead (lol) I have gradually over a period of time reduced my daily fix of Haribo, Randoms, Percy Pigs etc to an odd occasion . I stopped chocolate about 14years ago. I was a chocoholic. I discovered a couple of years ago I no longer like its taste. The biggest sugar reduction was stopping alcohol 3years ago. I loved my glasses of wine and cocktails. French Martinis and Cosmopolitans were a favourite (lol) I no longer miss them but the issue is finding enjoyable alternatives. Many pub drinks are sweet or syrupy. I enjoy sparkling water with elderflower cordial but it’s good to have something different. If you or any of your readers have any good suggestions I would love to hear them. Have a lovely weekend come

      Hey Lesley that’s so good. I’m still doing well but find it hard to know what to eat at times. I also have the issue with finding nice drinks and I don’t want to have any sugar substitute either like sweeteners which makes it even harder. Let me know if you find anything and I will do the same. Take care xxx

    Great positive post Kate 👍👍. The Life Coaching Course sounds really good. Experiences of life’s ups and downs will really help you help others love. I am still enjoying looking after Vinnie, my beautiful chilled out one year grandson who makes me very happy, and the next one up, George makes me chuckle when I see him, as he is a little firecracker!!! Grandchildren are amazing, and I never thought I would be so in love with all of them for different reasons.😍😍. Spiritually I am very good as I now have my War Room in my bedroom with people on it that I remember to pray for! The old brains not what it was! Physically I am not good, but I am very excited as I have joined Avenue Tennis from yesterday. I am not there for the tennis but the gym side and the wellness as they have a great steam, sauna etc. I am looking to do the Pilates and yoga to get my body stronger to cope with the pain I still get. God has been very good to me in showing me where I need to change things, physically and mentally, but like all of us, we are all still that “work in progress” and at the tender age of 61 I am still learning bigtime. As regards church, things are going great and God is using the fellowship to “keep on keeping on”, until we get another pastor, but Alan and the team are doing a fantastic job, and the 3.16 is going through massive changes this year so watch this space hon. Take care and keep blogging as I love em 🌺💐🌷. love to you and the family xx

    Lovely to read Kate and that sounds so good. It’s great how you are thinking so creatively and pursuing what is on your heart. 😌. I’m on a journey too and I’m needing to take charge of my time more and not just ‘react’ to other pressures.
    Bless you xx
