It’s the TV! That’s the easiest way for my husband to send my eyes whirling around like some mad thing out of a B-grade cartoon. The irritation just floods me! Imagine it now.

I guess that depends on how you define peace and what values each of you cherish. At Casa PinkApple If peace means quiet and unrippled (making up my own words here!) then you’d never suggest Casa Pink Apple was peaceful!

Image by Esther Gibbons It’s timely that the Calm Space is back up and whizzing to the front of everyone’s attention again! I’m looking forward to being seen on the “red carpet” at the relaunch.

One of the things that I find really irritating in personal development is that much-bandied concept that you can’t love someone else if you don’t love yourself.  Anyone else struggle to own that, or truly believe it?
