Family Stuff- Joy, Understanding and Insights



  • I had a visit from my daughter at the weekend and met her Australian boyfriend Tom. She’s off to Australia in September for a year and is naturally very excited about it. How do I feel? Well I shall miss her dreadfully but assume I will deal with it. Her father and I went off to The Middle East, Qatar, in the early Eighties for four years, When I think about it, I feel sure we never worried about leaving unhappy parents: So I wish her well.                                                                                                                                                            As I wrote in Survive and Thrive after Trauma no-one should try to emotionally contain another person.                                                                                                                                                            The world is a big place but access to most corners of it is fairly easy. Let’s see where Herb and I can travel to: Perhaps using Rachel as an excuse.
  • A Gosh moment happened on Father’s Day. My daughter passed a simple text message to Herb. The way my big children have responded to my marriage and life with Herb is great.
  • Herb’s parents made a simple comment on their wedding card. Be kind to each other. Simple but probably the best message you could give any new couple. We can all become wrapped up in our stuff. I am going to try to remember those words.

House and Cat Sit in Brittany



This year we have booked a Cat/House sit in Brittany, over Christmas and New Year: Rural Brittany. Daughter is away, son maybe on an Irish Christmas. A good time to do something different! So not Provençal Sunflowers in the summer but the charms of rural Brittany in the winter! (We hope to travel in the early Spring to Asia for a honeymoon.) We are a member of Trusted House Sitters We did a sit last year in the Dordogne. Super. Actually we are having a bit of trouble finding a French animal/house sit for September this year. The site is very popular! So if you know anyone looking for sitters please point them my way.

Survive and Thrive after Trauma- a leap of faith

A humour sketch – ‘Stop It!’

On a more humorous note please watch and enjoy this wonderful Bob Newhart sketch entitled “Stop it!”.
I just love this comic sketch and all the clever little points it makes.
Enjoy it for what it is please. I take my work very seriously but humour is very good for us.
If we can lighten up, good energy has an open door to come into our life and help us on our road to recovery.
I have made this a short blog to be viewed independently and I am also including it in My Overwhelm AND Christmas Time. blog

Top Tips to manage stress

I manage ‘my’ stress

Consider these 3 starter statements and you will get an idea how EFT can help you re-adjust mindset, and manage stress in a better way.
Tip 1
‘Even tho’ I feel stressed about (fill the gap with your own words or phrase)
I know it need not dictate my day’

Tip 2
‘Even tho’ I still have remaining stress
I choose to release it a little at a time’

Tip 3
‘Even tho’ Stress can trouble me
I choose to manage stress more effectively’

Once stress levels are reduced by using EFT, then Matrix ReImprinting can work at a much deeper level to help discover your ‘trigger’; the big ‘Why‘. The what particular words or particular situation causes an anxiety response.

 If you are interested in my thoughts on emotional mentoring have a read at one of my other (somewhat questioning) blogs. ‘Emotional Mentoring’

5 Top tips for a busy brain.

‘Ditto’ taking ‘time out’

5 Top Tips for a busy brain. Basic, but we forget!
We so often just do not give ourselves a rest.

Tip 1. Just take 5 minutes, close your eyes, and slow down. Savour what’s going on, if you can.
Tip 2. If too much is going on, overwhelm is nearby. Take that 5 minutes to prioritise. No point suffering ‘burn out’
Tip 3. The good feeling when you have succeeded in a task, or have just had a good laugh, is valuable. Enjoy it.
Tip 4. Give yourself the gift of ‘Heart Breathing’. We think too much.
Place both hands over your heart
Close your eyes and relax.
Breath in slowly for 5 or 6 seconds, and out for 5 or 6 seconds, focussing on your heart. This has great calming and therapeutic benefit. Do this several times. Enjoy feeling the difference it makes. Your body noticeably calms.
Tip 5. Or just decide that your brain needs a rest, and do it.
