Me and My Blog


I’m Karen, welcome to my blog!

I am a 53 year old woman who believes that women who have passed a certain landmark birthday should  embrace all that life throws at us and make the absolute best of who we are and what we have. Whilst I write about issues that are relevant to my age group, I hope the blog is relevant to a wide range of ages and cultures, genders and religions.

My blog is about positivity and living life to its fullest, but I am interested in lots of challenging social issues including mental health, environmental issues, and the obesity crisis.  As a trained counsellor, I am a mental health advocate and have experience with life coaching. I would like to motivate and inspire with my writing where I can.

I have done a lot of travelling both in the UK and overseas, and I enjoy exercising for health. I have recently taking up fasting.  I love all animals, (especially cats) and am a longtime Manchester United FC supporter.  Medieval and Tudor history has been a lifelong passion of mine …and I am just one small lottery  win away from starting my own animal welfare sanctuary 😁

I have 3 cats, 2 children, 2 stepchildren and my husband (Andy) and I live on the edge of the New Forest in Hampshire in the UK.

If you have any thoughts that you would like to share with me, I would be delighted to hear from you.

Karen ❤️
