Who is craving a return to sun with a holiday in Spain

The answer to that is probably ‘ WE ARE’.  Gosh, you don’t realise what you are missing until you can’t do it any more do you?
Although it’s no consolation really we have to make do with watching programmes on the TV showing glorious sunshine, beaches, airports and travel programmes.  It seems cruel at times to watch people such as our lovely Jane McDonald cruising the Med when it is MOST def NOT going to happen until well into next year.
So … to whet you appetite for you holiday in the sun I’m sharing a photo of a lovely bright shiney jet winging it’s way to somewhere marvellous I’m sure.

Ahhhhh …. those were the days.

So this year we will probably be taking our Holiday at Pontins

Anyone coming with us? We have a feeling it will be lovely.

###

“Pontins Holiday Parks and Sand Bay & Pakefield Holiday Villages are re-opening from 17th July 2020 in line with current government advice.

At this time they can only offer self catered breaks.

Following government guidelines there will be no entertainment and the activities on park will be limited as social distancing guidelines must be adhered to.

Pontins Holidays takes the health & safety of all its guests and staff very seriously and as such please be advised we will review and update this information as it is released by the government.

All parks and holiday villages are situated a stone’s throw from the beach; the weather is set to be fantastic; we look forward to welcoming you back.”

Lockdown Survival Guide 2020

I don’t know about you but I think it’s been a tough 12 weeks hasn’t it? LOCKDOWN IS PAINFUL

One thing that got me through so far has been my fridge poster (hand-written … nothing posh or impressive) that reminded me daily of a few things I thought I needed to do to keep myself going OK.

There is no way I can claim I came up with it or put a copyright to it.  I read it on one of those many millions of social media posts that came before my eyes. If you recognise it and want me to add credit please let me know. Thanks – Julie

Anyway – here it is. Hope it helps you too somewhere along the way.

In a Day – Do What Works For YOU

Ask YOURSELF these questions – gently – no bullying of self

  1. Who have I contacted to give love and support?
  2. How have I kept my mind calm?
  3. What did I do to get some fresh air?
  4. How did I move my body to get / keep fit?
  5. What did I do to progress my work / life / future?
  6. What did I eat for optimal good health?
  7. What did I do to be creative / express myself?

And that’s it. Quite simple but effective.

Speaking of which I’ve done all on the checklist except plan a good meal for this evening.  Hope everyone is keeping safe and keeping well.

Love n light ju xx

Wildflower Walks & Cobweb Blowing

A blustery day can really clear the head and the cobwebs from the brain.  Today we nearly got blown off our feet going around the local park.  It was really super though – not complaining.

Trees swaying and rustling gave a sense that the world was getting moving again after the total freeze we have all experienced of late.  A time when literally time was standing still and so were the humans on this world.

All over the world it seems that when people can they are trying to get out and about to get life going again.  Nature is responding similarly with trees filling with lush leaves and wildflowers going crazy in abandoned plots all over the place.

Lovely. Let us live in hope that these are signs of recovery.

Hello Good Morning

just a line to say a very good morning.

My first post ….

There’s nothing so scary as a blank page when you feel the urge to write but are not sure what to write.  So, in the time honoured tradition of ‘auto-writing’ I’m resting my fingers on the keyboard and just seeing what come out!

Have you ever felt as if ‘time was running out’? Do you find yourself shocked when something like a song comes on the TV with a year attached when it charted? Do you ever wonder where all the years have gone and what happened to all the plans you had of doing things ‘one day’?

Well, welcome to the club.

It’s a bit of a jolt and wake-up call isn’t it?

So – I have decided that I need to

1. start to appreciate this day that we have so graciously been granted.
2. Make plans for ‘doing things’ in the near, middle and far future.
3. Make no excuses and follow through with our plans.

If you would like to join me on the quest for change then you are more than welcome.

I have set up a Facebook page as well if you’re a FB user – /ADayWellLivedUK/

Looking forward to your company on this journey.

Goethe Quote: Begin it now

“What You Can Do, or Dream You Can, Begin It – Boldness Has Genius, Power and Magic in it. Begin it now”

Whatever you can do, or dream you can do, Begin it now!

Attributed to Goethe but not his words – that doesn’t take away the sentiment or motivational nature of the quote though.

So who really said it first? ….

Making a Vision Board 5 Easy Steps

How do you Make Vision Boards? Making a vision board is easy and can be achieved with very little resources and minimal effort.

Vision boards when done in an easy no stress way are far more effective in fact than those that are completed under pressure. They have the ability to tap into your deep subconcious desires by taking this relaxed approach.

Vision board are for you to create a space for you to identify and remind yourself what really matters in your life.

So if you’re ready – let’s go …

You will need:

* A large piece of paper or notice board
* Something to attach cuttings to your paper or board (glue or pins)
* A selection of magazines, leaflets, brochures or printouts to use for ideas
* Scissors
* Time for yourself

What to do:

1. Pick your time and set the mood. Do what works for you. The whole thing does not need to be done in one go. You can split your time up into blocks – perhaps 15 to 20 minutes to go through source material. Tear out photos, articles, words and colours that instinctively appeal to YOU. No thought of what someone else might think. This is ABOUT YOU

2. The next block of time is to cut up the photos and articles. Take about 10 to 15 minutes. Trim them to shapes that please you. Not everything needs to be how it was presented to you. A square picture can be made round, oval, heart shaped or cut to your own style. Look for letters and words that mean something to you. These can be cut from whole sentences to suit YOU.

3. The last block of time is taken to arrange the cuttings on your paper or board. You don’t need to use ALL your cuttings. Be as creative or as orderly and structured as YOU choose to be. There’s no right or wrong in this activity.

4. When you are happy with your creation glue or pin the cuttings in place.

5. Finally, have a think about what your board is telling you about you, your life, your ambitions and dreams. Make a note of these things, either in a diary, a mental note or on your phone.

Take a step back, SMILE and GIVE A DEEP SIGH OF RELIEF

The next step will be to plan what actions to take to achieve your dreams and goals.

SEE YOU NEXT TIME

NB You can do another vision board at any time and make it focus just on one topic such as a home decor makeover. DO NOT LIMIT YOURSELF
