Sorry I haven’t been in touch for a while but life has been a bit of a roller coaster for the last 6 weeks or so and we are only just beginning to get back to 'normal'.
The whole family got swine flu just before Christmas and we just recovered in time to enjoy the turkey and presents. I was back at work, albeit briefly from Boxing Day, and then I was knocked off my feet again with more illness. It was probably the 'seasonal flu' combined with a few other things! What with snow, power cuts, schools closed… we all had a rough start to 2010. However, we're off and running now and things are looking up. The family are all well and 2010 is looking full of promise, with lots of exciting things to look forward to.
I've made no New Year’s resolutions but really intend to get myself into shape this year. I haven’t really done much in the way of exercise in the last three years but, even though I will have to start very slowly, I fully intend to get myself fitter and more active.
I've also just started to learn how to meditate! I have tried this in the past, without much success, but after talking with Wayne Dyer, I've been inspired to try again and I'm using one of his CDs. I'm hoping it will allow myself to calm my active mind so that I can relax a little more easily, so if anyone has any tips for a complete novice I would be delighted to hear them.
My problem is that I just can’t clear my mind. I'm constantly flitting from one subject to another. I sit there trying and trying and either don’t succeed or just fall asleep! Maybe I should go to Bhutan and join a Buddhist monastery – I could wear a Slanket!
Anyway, I’m back and will be keeping you all in the picture over the forthcoming months, so I look forward to keeping in touch.
