6 things I’ve learnt

Smiling is contagious

Smile at people and they can’t help but smile back (well most of them do!).

Music is the best therapy

Putting on my favourite tune and dancing round the kitchen (on my own, with a reluctant member of the family or even the cat) never fails to make me smile.

Parents words ringing in my ears as you get older

From my dad – ‘look after the pennies and the pounds will look after themselves’ and ‘the best things in life are free’ (there’s a link here somewhere!).
From mum – ‘everything in moderation’ and ‘wear sunscreen’.

Get a dog

No-one has ever been more pleased to see me walk through the front door than my dog …..

Don’t underestimate the power of a platform shoe

As someone who is ‘vertically challenged’ this means being able to see the band on stage still in relative comfort and generally feeling rather more grown up!

Always carry a good book

You never know when you get a chance to lose yourself in a great novel or learn something completely new.
