Did you know that…
8 March is International Women’s Day. Which women inspire you and why?
There are many confident, respected, successful women actors, politicians, writers etc but you don’t have to be a famous woman to be celebrated on this day.
I’m celebrating YOU for your great qualities, commitment and achievements.

By the way, I hope that you had a relaxing Mother’s Day yesterday too.

6-13 March is Sleep Awareness Week to raise awareness for the health benefits of sleep and its importance to safety and productivity. Find out more at or on Twitter, use the hashtag #7Days4BetterSleep.

Almonds contain more calcium than any other nut which is great for keeping your bones strong.
Sunflower and pumpkin seeds are packed with magnesium, protein, B vitamins and zinc and are great to snack on.

Something to think about:
Bryce (Fitness Pilates Tue/Thurs class) went to Lidl on Thursday and bought a couple of extra gardening kneeling pads – one in black and the other in pink and they’re £1.99 each if anyone wants to buy them from him on Tuesday in our Craiglockhart Fitness Pilates class. The pads do make a difference, giving a bit more cushioning under knees and head. They also have these pads in green if you want to buy them for the class and/or gardening for yourself. Be quick though.

In advance of the new National Clear Your Clutter day on 19 March, I’ve had a clear-out and donated some clothing to M&S in their Shwop bin (in the Services Department, Gyle or town) and if you have a Sparks card, you get 50 extra points onto your card. If you’re de-cluttering and having a clear out, you can sell, donate, upcycle and recycle your unwanted items. For details on how to do this and more info, including a video, visit or on Twitter: @Clearclutterday and Facebook: nationalclearyourclutterday

Ovarian Cancer Awareness month is in March.

Choice, Chance and Change: You have to choose to take a chance if you want to change.
