An Alternative Results Day

A change in focus. A change in priorities. A change in what matters most. Something I've experienced and heard so much in the past few months. Cancer really has a way of throwing everything up in the air, with it landing in different places than thrown.

Have You Got Too Serious?

When I was younger, I was the life and soul of any party. I was the giggler. In fact once I started I usually couldn't stop and then of course, my giggling would be infectious. My friends would all be laughing until we were crying or struggling to breathe.

You now wander past costume shops and realise that events nowadays rarely require costumes for no good reason... At this post-graduate stage of your life having at least three bottle openers in any given handbag is seen as excessive rather than handy... You're a grown up now.

The World Cup is upon us and, with it, football mania is here again! Years of discussion, dilly-dallying and endless debate in the sports pages has been replaced with make-or-break decisions and top footballing action featuring some of the most talented players of all time.

"Scott. You look like you are carrying the weight of the world on your shoulders. Lighten up, kiddo!" I must have heard this phrase from my parents a million times. Now as I spend my career working in the field of genealogy at Onward To Our Past®, I think it is an apt phrase for many who pursue their ancestry, genealogy, and family history.

Time for Fun Resolutions!

Have you made some resolutions? How many do you think you will keep? Not many? I have a theory about that. Most resolutions are about changing a habit, stopping or starting something. Trouble is that if we really wanted to do that then we probably already would be doing it.

The Paris of Parisians

Parisians usually avoid tourist spots as they much more enjoy to be part of the local life of their neighbourhood and have their habits at the same bakery and cafés. Their ordinary routines are entangled within the traditional clichés of Paris and create this unique and authentic atmosphere.

I did know where I was going to take my children on holiday, but the plan went wrong. I know when we are going, I just don't know where, yet and I've been thinky thinking about it but I'm just not sure what to do. A city? A beach? Bit of both? Culture?

What I Learned In Ibiza

Harriet Williamson

The beach was not the chilled-out haven I'd imagined, with thumping club tunes broadcast across the sand from 12am and frighteningly sunburned girls shrieking expletives because someone had moved their sun lounger a little too close. The boys in matching Baywatch outfits appeared too exhausted even to leer, their vision saturated by the flesh on show.

The new card room at the Hippodrome, meanwhile, is clearly built for fun. The Hippodrome itself is a social space, and always has been. It is huge, with a spangly bar, a smart restaurant and a very good smoking terrace for those who like that sort of thing.

Last week I wore trainers. For those lucky people that have experienced my incredible running prowess or seen me post-workout, this won't necessarily be surprising. To those in a professional context, I'd hazard this as unheard of. I 'don't do' trainers.

Exploring cocktails should be fun- and like with cooking, there's a chance to get a group of friends involved. The beauty of this type of collaboration is that each person will bring a unique view to the gathering and with this, a whole new take to bring to the table.

The other day I was asked if I wanted to go on a day trip to Brighton. This is normally the sort of offer that I shun as I like to stay well within my comfort zone, and this felt, well...outside of it. However, born out of the sudden frustration with monotony and lack of real human experiences, I instinctively agreed, and what a decision that turned out to be.

Day 5. Women's Beach Volleyball. The feminist side of my brain was egging me on to complain before I even arrived. I was about to sit through three hours of a male dominated audience ogling at toned women bending over in their ready position.
