Creating a bucket list.


So you’ve decided to write a bucket list? Awesome! It’s never too late to start dreaming and setting goals for yourself. The first thing you need to do is grab a pen and paper or open up your laptop, then start brainstorming. Write down everything you’ve ever wanted to do in life – big, small, simple or complex – without worrying about how realistic they are. Once you’ve got a long list of ideas, it’s time to prioritize and narrow it down. Think about what’s most important to you right now or what would have the biggest impact on your life. Don’t forget that some things may require planning ahead or saving money for, so be sure to take those into consideration when making your final decisions. Remember that this list is not set in stone; It can always evolve as you grow and change as a person. Just have fun with it!

I’m not sure what I’d include in mine, nothing really wild I don’t think, but you may be far more adventurous than me. I’d more go down the creating memories route, and going back to places I love and spending more time with loved ones.

Joyful Scents.

Oh, I absolutely adore Joy by Dior! It’s been my go-to fragrance for years now. The scent is a perfect balance of floral and fruity notes, with hints of jasmine, rose, bergamot, mandarin, and patchouli. It’s not too overpowering but lasts for hours on end, leaving me feeling refreshed & feminine throughout the day. Plus, the elegant bottle design fits perfectly on my vanity or in my purse for on-the-go touch-ups. If you want to find out more, have a look on here

I saw this online today, and thought I’d share it with you all.

A virtual kiss???

Kissing is one of the most intimate things we can do, it shows our love and/or affection for someone.

Just read that a Chinese device has been created to allow people in long-distance relationships to share a kiss using 3d technology. Personally I feel this is a step too far. It could never truly replicate and carry with it the real person’s emotions and passion behind the kiss. It sounds too clinical for me.

Here’s a link to the article. What do you think?

The best care?

So many people out there need that little bit of extra help, or care, if you prefer to use that word. But, what is the best care to give them?

Everyone is an individual who needs someone or something else in their life to help it be a life full of fun and quality living, not just living, but being alive and feeling alive!

What a disabled child, or disabled adult needs in the way of care will differ between each individual, but it’ll also be very different to what a frail 88 year old beds for example.

There isn’t a one answer solution, which means absolutely NO, no way should care homes be the automatic standard solution given and recommended by local (or national) government providers.

They struggle to give suitable support now, and that’s generally for pretty much one age range, the elderly. Who all each have their own needs, even the elderly vary so much. Some people choose care homes, and that’s a choice which should be recognised as theirs to make.

They may feel unable to cope day to day safely at home, and prefer to have the reassurance of help being nearby, and the social goings on, as well as being surrounded by a small community whist having their own private room and bathroom.

A huge number of those who need care of some sort to help with daily life, are of working age, quite a few actually do work in someway, whether it be going to work, working from home, running their own business, or in a voluntary capacity either in the community or from home. Now this would immediately become impossible for most if they were compelled to give up their existing life and move into a care home – bare in mind that there’s no guarantee as to where that place would be, it might well not even be local to where they live now.

Others are unable to work, but still with the right support are able to manage living at home and have a thriving social life, should they be expected to just give that up? I think not. There lives aren’t any less important than the people who are rich and famous, or those who run big businesses. Who are we to say sorry, but your life doesn’t matter.

The best care, is the care that adds value and independence for each individual person. Everyone gives back to their community in some way, whether it just be a fantastic smile and greeting that makes the other person happy and improves their day, or they run a local charity event. We all touch our community in a way, but some just need that little bit of extra time and care so they can join in with and share that sense of community and give back in their own unique way.

Let’s care in the best way as both a community, but also as nation. #bekindalways

Animal lover

What are your favorite animals?

I really am a huge animal lover, but dogs have to be my all time favourite animal.

They are so loyal, understanding, patient and caring. Given the time and care they truly deserve, they’ll pay that back 1000’s of times more over their lifetime.

I don’t believe there is such a thing as a bad dog. A traumatised one, a scared dog, an under exercised and under stimulated dog, and definitely confused ones. But not a dog that’s bad from birth.

It is our responsibility and commitment to care for and look after them, and we need to do the best we can by them. Ensuring they feel safe, loved, secure, comfortable, and healthy.

They really are the perfect companion/friend.
