The boring stuff I know, but please read and observe. Thank you.

I have a Policies and Disclaimer page on my blog for a reason. It covers me, but it also helps you as a reader and if you are a blogger yourself, it is advisable to have one, if you don’t have one already.
I know there are people who do read this page looking at my stats, but there are also a very small amount of people that don’t follow the “policies/disclaimer” page, or don’t read it. So this is why I have now copied this page and added it to this post. But because this page can change, it is your responsibility to keep up with the original page, which you can find here, or at the top of my page, labelled, “Policies/Disclaimer.” 

Although I have personal experiences in mental health and expanding on my knowledge, please do not seek advice from me by emailing me, instead, speak to an appropriate qualified person for the query you have. I also have a “Helpful Links” page, where there some useful links. 

Also, I cannot give advice via email on other people’s blogs or video reviews, etc… Blogging is a learning curve for everyone and even I have had to teach myself on this platform, as well as other previous blogs platforms I have used. This may sound harsh, but I write my blog for free, so I can only devote so much time due to other commitments.
My email is on the side of the blog for only one reason and that is for queries regarding this blog.

Thank you for taking note of this post and for reading this post. I do hope you continue reading the rest below and keep yourself up to date from time to time, by checking my original page, in case it has changed.

Book review: ‘Deliciously Ella Every Day, by Ella Woodward.

img_0594

‘Deliciously Ella Every Day,’ by Ella Woodward is her second book. The book focus on eating well as easy as possible, focusing on easy accessible ingredients. It covers breakfast, healthy eating on-the-go, salads, easy weekday dinners, big batch cooking simple sweets. There are over 100 recipes in this book.

It was from this book that I tried a quinoa and ginger porridge one time, for my breakfast. Not something I would have thought of having and so it made a change for me.

Although I have not delved in this book much, it is still a book that remains on my bookshelf for alternative ideas and new inspirations.

One step ahead, too far.

As you know, I will one day soon be having driving lessons in an automatic car. I have been looking up things I need to know since last year on cars, so I can be prepared as I can be.

Todays post is a little ramble, as I wanted to share something with you that might make you smirk. I wanted you to have a laugh on my behalf, because I have laughed about it myself.
Recently, I was looking in my diary, thinking I better book a couple of lessons. I chose a couple of dates so I could have two driving lessons of that week and I was not far off from booking them. Then I realised and called myself a plonker, following by laughing at myself, because I realised I had not sorted out my Provisional licence yet. So I was one step a little too far and possibly a little eager. 😀 So first, the all important paperwork to wait for and get that filled, before doing the above. 🙂

Book review: 101 ways To Live Well

“101 Ways To Live Well,” by Lonely Planet, is an easy to read book that you can read right from the beginning, or dip in and out of where it interests you. (www.lonelyplanet.com)
This book helps you to discover secret wellness hacks that you can incorporate into your regular routine. It can be just 5 minutes, or 10 minutes, to help you feel calmer, more productive, healthier and without sacrificing your hours. These tips for your body and for your mind, can help at home, work, play, relationships and travel.
Some tips are familiar to me, but there are lots of new ones too. A nice handbag size book to read on the go.

I already started reading this book before I went on my recent holiday and I was reading it in the hotel, or on the coach at times. A nice book that will stay on my bookshelf for future use.

Volunteer update

After leaving the one that did not make use of me, I was hoping to volunteer elsewhere, that would not be too far to travel to. This would have been with Mind and I posted the application for volunteering with them, near the end of last week.

I heard from them today, thanking me for applying to be a volunteer. But unfortunately, they have any volunteer vacancies at present that will fit with my availability.

I can’t say I don’t feel disappointed to hear this and upset about this, as I was looking forward to the possibility of helping there. I am not going to apply anywhere else I had in mind, that came second to this one. Instead, I am just going to take this as a blessing in disguise. I am going to concentrate on finishing my final piece of my mental health course, which a lot of work is going into this final piece and I have the other two to courses to over the next year. So more time to focus on them.

Also, I plan to sort out dates for driving lessons, so more flexibility to concentrate on this and free time to arrange more than one lesson a week when it comes to learning to drive. So this is why I think it is a blessing in disguise.

 

This will be a big thing for me

Learning to drive is going to be a big thing for me and when the time comes to owning a car, it will be a massive decision I make. But I do have someone close in the family who will be there to make sure that the car I choose is a reliable one. I have already received lots of tips already about cars, learning to drive and taking the test. This person was the one who explained how to drive a manual car in easy to understand terms, hence why I nearly chose this route. But as you know, automatic seems to be my comfort zone for me and as someone said in a post before, driving is supposed to be fun.

I hope to sort out a couple of lessons in the next couple of weeks, to see that my chosen driving school is right for me. (They have good reviews and they have been recommended after I already chose them.) If those two are fine, then I will then book a block lesson. I will keep you updated down the line when I have had some lessons.
