I need an energy boost


Are you having one of those days where everything is such an effort?  You can’t sit down as you know you would fall asleep, your concentration power is pretty rubbish, and as for brain power, well let’s just skip that.  I don’t know about you, but my kids are great at sensing those days, or maybe I give off an “I’m tired” smell.  Anyway, I was having one of those days yesterday during half term.  We had headed into town for a spot of musical chairs at lunch, then shoe swopping in the shoe shops (which consists of taking your shoes of, putting on an new pair and hiding the old pair), musical bumps in the street (basically you sit down in the most crowded walking area for no reason other than you fancy it) and last but not least, tag (you run off as far as you can from the responsible adult, in the opposite direction, or just where they have said not to go, whilst they are trying to pay as then they can’t get you!!).  Needless to say, by the end of the day I was exhausted and in need of a much needed boost.  Now I don’t drink tea of coffee as I hate the taste so I needed something else to pick me up.  It got me thinking that some of you might like a few tips in that area too.

He doesn’t understand me!


It is not a very well-kept secret that poor communications underlies many relationship problems. Many of the clients who come to see me because they are going through a bad patch with their partner report that they have stopped having meaningful conversations. Most of their discussions are about the daily routine and the kids.
