The Winners are…

By Books & AuthorsNo Comments

Tomorrow is the 1 year anniversary of the release of my book Mental Health Wisdom. To celebrate I’ve hosted a giveaway. The original plan was to giveaway x2 signed paperback copies and x1 eBook (PDF) copy to three lucky people.

Part of my hopes for 2020 are that the world has more kindness in it. It starts with me. I received 9 entries and have decided to give them all a signed paperback and eBook (PDF) each. So the winners are:

  • Jude Cookson
  • Dawn
  • Kat
  • Joanne Rimmer
  • Jennifer
  • Marie Rate
  • Debby Lockheart
  • Lisa Davies
  • Cherie

…everyone that entered.

Congratulations to you all. You should have received an email asking for your postal address and with the eBook (PDF) copy attached.

Visiting Skipton

By Friends & Family, Happiness & JoyNo Comments

My good friend Simon and I recently visited Skipton. Skipton is home to a superbly preserved castle, but Simon and I didn’t get chance to see it.

We explored the town, on a regular day, rather than a market day. It had lots of lovely little shops. Some reasonably priced, some not. Some selling some unique products, some selling tat.

There were a couple of new age/holistic well-being shops selling crystals and the like, but no pagan shops selling witchcraft supplies.

We had a pub lunch and then went for a walk following the upward path of an unknown waterfall. Here are some photos of the waterfall:
