Lady pads and my friend Nikki

A little bit off the topic of books and writing, I’ll be honest since I’ve become self employed, writing has gone on the back burner and has since become a smouldering Phoenix that will hopefully one day rise from the ashes in to the best selling novel I dream of writing 😉

Until then I will bring you other interests of mine, general opinions,occasionally the odd rant and movie review but today I would like to tell you about a fellow blogger, entrepreneur and friend Nikki Perry. She is an eco warrioress, a human minion and a Hogwarts geek but don’t we all  want the cream envelope with the scarlet waxed stamp?
She is such an inspiration to me as she has had a tough life but because of that is so full of unattainable knowledge and wisdom , I spend hours speaking to her and come away a little wiser everytime.

Now one thing Nikki has taught is about the dangers of sanitary items and baby’s nappys, about their chemical make up , their effect on your body and on the environment. Now since I have been having monthly periods since I was 11,I am now 28, and have been using them for a week every month since then I’ve absorbed a lot of chemicals and infested the planet quite enough for one life time.
Interestingly enough I have also suffered abnormal cells,an ovarian cyst and a miscarriage… coincidence?
So I have asked Nikki to make me some reusable sanitary pads and I have got to say they are so comfy and not that much hassle to care for,it’s a little extra work than just whipping one off whacking it in the bin and sticking another plastic chemical ridden pad on yes but it will also be a lot of work being incontinent or having IVF due to nastiness messing up my insides ick!

So I would just personally like to raise a pad in honour of my friend for showing me the light, saving my lady bits and I would love if you could all pop over,follow her blog “Created By Nikki” and her Instagram, I have posted a link below for my personal account and photo of my new friends and she is tagged in it. Pop over ,say hi, ask questions ,come away feeling more knowledgeable than before and feeling like you have made a friend 🙂

Love you Nik,

New Years resolutions

We all make them don’t we?

Lose weight must be the biggest one.. gyms are heaving, exercises classes booked ou,  people out pounding the road

Quit smoking… a couple of tetchy people about in January

Take up something new, pyramid it forward, be more positive, read more write more…

No wonder people get the January blues we start off with all good intentions  and as they last about as long as a chorus of Auld Lang Syne we then fall in to a deep state of failure and depression…

Well there’s one thing I’ve leared in my 27 nearly 28 years… you’ll only complete something and work at something you enjoy.. I’ve also learnt there’s not enough time in the day…

Which is why my new years resolution last year was to finish my book which I did… In January.. I one year on I have had multiple rejectons and have decided to publish myself on Amazon… I’ve sold about 10…

Why is this? Because I have zero interest in trawling through multiple sites to find out the best way to publish, I don’t get twitter, I have no time to sit and actually do these things I even if I did have an interest in them … no i really don’t, I am currently clock watching as I have to be out the door on way to an appointment  in 13 minutes… Make that 12…

So my resolution  was to make more time and use the time I have more sufficiently so rather than spending 20 minutes on candy crush I’m letting you in on my resolution… get off my lazy ass and listen to the pros.. I put a year in to writing a book now I want it to be read and enjoyed…

until next year when hopefully I will be a twitter whizz and The Lies That Bind Us will be a bit higher up in the Amazon and Smashword’s charts…

I bid you s happy new year or Blwyddyn Newydd Dda its welsh new year here today in Cwm Gwaun for any of you interested  in weird traditions… I’d post you a link but my phone doesn’t like WordPress on chrome and if I dare make a mistake it stops me writing so do feel free to Google 😉 

Hope you all have a fab 2015 until next time…

adios
