Time for tea…

Just back from Dusseldorf airport, to snowy UK, after an amazing week at Münster, Gütersloh and Dortmund, with some of the best of the best in the industry (you guys know who you are! ^_^)

I was intrigued by an advert for Chai Tea Latte for my Dolce Gusto – so have ordered some to try (along with a huge stock of other pods I seem to consume at a rate of knots) What do you think of this:

“We’ve gathered together all the exotic, spicy charm of a Chai Tea Latte and brought it straight to your front door. With a delicious blend of cinnamon, ginger, cloves and cardamon, with a dash of sugar and some delightfully frothy milk  – it’s perfect for those who like their tea with a spoonful of the exotic.”


Time to unwind this weekend, then prepare for Szczecin Tues/Wed and Dublin Thurs/Fri. I have Brno (Czech Republic), Tallinn (Estonia), Herzlia (Israel) in the coming weeks, so apologies if I don’t update much.

Smiles and Magic Moments

I’m starting to feel better after being a bit run-down this week and off work, but the quiet time has given me breathing space away from non stop work, tv, pc and phone. Call it serendipity, but I’ve got a good feeling about 2012. I’ve spent years see saw-ing work-life balance, and have used work (for which i’m passionate as I work at my dream company, doing my dream job) as an excuse for hiding from fulfilling my personal life. I don’t have any goals (e.g. marriage/kids), but I have a strong sense of right and wrong and desire to help and share, and have learned that real reward comes from doing what is right, and not doing something in expectation of reward. There’s a fine line, but if you soul-search, it’s easy for us to admit that we’re all perhaps a little too fond of hedonistic lifestyle? Whilst that’s fine for a while, it’s like eating the icing on the cake. Certainly there’s a sugar rush, but you don’t feel you’ve eaten anything substantial, true? I don’t for a moment suggest we give away all our wordly posessions and go off to a 3rd world country to teach kids (which /hats-off to those who do!), but even the smallest of gestures can start an avalanche – even a smile. Maybe it’s a sign of age, being sentimental or perhaps the opportunity to quietly reflect on life, but I just wanted to share the sentiment to anyone who may find this post, and give them a moment to reflect too that it’s not just you who may feel lost in life.

Smiling is infectious, You catch it like the flu,

When someone smiled at me today, I started smiling too.  

I passed around the corner, And someone saw my grin.

When he smiled I realised I’d passed it on to him.  

I thought about that smile then I realized its worth,

A single smile, just like mine could travel round the earth.  

So, if you feel a smile begin, don’t leave it undetected

Let’s start an epidemic quick, and get the world infected!

This butterfly marks a turning point in my life from several years ago. At a time when life had been challenging, the simple act of this beautiful butterfly landing on my shoulder one day at Cliveden near where I live, changed my life around. Maybe this was the fabled ‘Butterfly Effect’ in action! I was amazed that it came out so well, but wanted to /share in the hope that you all find your butterflies.

❤ & hugs to all! ^_^

GoPro HD Hero2

This vid is just a great product advert – has it all, surfing, skiing, skydiving, racing, bikini babes, and a pumping sound track. Make sure to play 1080p full screen and see if you agree. Think I might just get one (and a bikini babe) >8o)

Let the light shine through..

People are like stained-glass windows.
They sparkle and shine
when the
sun is out,
but when the darkness sets in,
their true beauty is
only if there is a light from within.
