Sending Blessings and Love!


Hello! How are you?

Well, why have I called this blog blessings and love? Because this last week I have been so aware of how blessed I am and how much love there is in my life.  I don’t know about you but if you currently are or have ever been single sometimes it can feel like a little sad or like there is a missing bit of life. But this week I have realised more than ever that life in its own way brings so much love, intimacy and joyful moments.

I was very luck to be invited to the Copra Beauty Awards lunch by the QVC buyers – here is a photo of cosmetics buyer Louisa, I absolutely adore her and it made realise how many people at QVC feel more like friends than work colleagues!

Another photo is with baby Mia who is my friends Maciej & Zuza’s daughter, she is 6 months old and a joy to be around.

I also got together with two university friends this week – Ruth and Marcia – we have known each other now for almost 25 years and even though we hardly see each other we always seem to just pick up right where we left off!golfCraig and uni friends

I am also doing lots of dancing at the moment – the dance company I am with is performing in London Pride in June so I am doing classes and rehearsals every week, it’s such great fun! But as well as the dancing so many of us now feel like brothers – we laugh, we talk, we joke and it’s so wondeful being with them. Last weekend we had an afternoon of crazy golf and let’s just say just like a family it got rather competitive – brilliant!


Last week I also celebrated one of my best friend, Javed’s birthdays  – drinks outside on a summer evening in the West End, always a treat!

So – with all this going on I just feel overcome with love and blessings! Hope you have had a good few days and if not then I am sending extra big hugs and I hope this blog has brought a smile to your face.

    Hi Craig
    loved reading you blog this week and thankyou for sharing your precious photos. Nothing wrong with being single! what it does do though is gives you time to focus on self and what that means too. Whether by choice or otherwise we all have so much to give, and nothing is permanant, things change and that’s what makes life so special. During my life i have been single mum bringing up children, single as they grew up, and today i’m living alone again. However making plans and looking back all brings it’s own pleasures.
    I’m off on holiday tomorow for a coiple of weeks in the sun, some of the time i will be alone but it’s time to be treasured. Making memories is what life is about. Enjoy the freedom you work so hard you deserve it.
    Much love Craig X

    Much ove to you too Craig
