New Year

Wishing you all a Happy and prosperous New Year.

I know you’ all probablly fed up of that by now as it is a full 2 weeks since the event but none the less it is still a New Year and sometimes I think it’s good to keep reminding ourselves of that. A new year just to walk away from things you might have regretted or would prefer to not remember from the previous year, but also a time of fresh……..Everything! fresh chances to get right what we failed at last time, fresh challenges because life loves to throw a few of them at us! Time to take a deep breath have a look around and take stock. Recognise our failings and achievements and plan our goals for the next 12 months. I’ve decided if I don’t write lists of where I want to go, or what I want to do or achieve; life just passes me by and yes I’m approaching 40 and now there is a possibilty that I have now lived longer than I have left to live.   So in the years remaining I must spend my time doing what is important, what makes memories, what makes me glad that I am living not just alive.

So dates to watch out for in 2014 so far:

*****January 2014 Cyfoes Healthcare is now working alongside Smile Dental in Mermaid Quay Cardiff Bay. This is a wonderful oppertunity for us to take our business into Cardiff, and we are very grateful to them for giving us the oppertunity to work out of the premises. If you are interested in visiting us at our clinic there as it is more convenient please call 20920 48 12 12 to make your appointments.

*****Then 1st March Cyfoes is supporting 2 Wish Upon a Star at their annual ‘Little Ball of Hope’ in the Mecure Hotel Cradiff, Tickets are now available, anyone is welcome, if you can come and support this wonderful charity and enjoy a fantastic evening please do. The choir I am part of ‘The Accidentals’ will be singing that night during the champagne reception. This is a fantastic choir set up by Mrs Ellie Wilson a staff nurse I worked with in A&E. We are a fun energetic choir who meet once a week in Creigiau. We sing an eclectic mix of music, I have made the most wonderful friends since joining and I would recommend it to everyone no matter how good you are at holding a note singing is definately good for the soul! If you are interested in knowing more they have a facebook page or you could contact me through and I will pass on your details.

******30/31st May 2014. In support of the above charity I have madly agreed to do the Wickets and Wheels bike ride this year, which is a charity ride from Miskin to Taunton 115miles. I am an absolute novice on the bike so my training over the coming months I’m sure will be entertainment to some and pain for me 🙂


To close…. My 1st Christmas and New Year off this year was lovely, to all my freinds working these shifts I did stop and think about you for…..a second or two and then poured another glass of red! No seriously I did think about it and it made me appreciate what I have achieved even more, I have been told on numerous occassions that I never seem stressed regardless of what is going on around me but I can assure you that’s not the case…after years of training and support from good friends in A&E I am now a swan….looks serene to most people as you float by  but paddling like mad beneath the water to stay afloat.

I will never forget where I came from, who I have worked with, freinds I have made but…. this year I will contine to look forward, setting my goals harder and higher and kicking my little legs as hard as I can to stay afloat .

I’m really thankful for all your support so far I hope you continue to support me on the rest of my journey x

What are you setting out to do in 2014??

Tis the Season to be Jolly

Well it’s the first week of Decemeber and this brings with it a mixed amount of emotions for different people. For me this year for the first time in many years I am looking forward to spending time with my family uninterupted by shift work, for this I am very grateful but as the business woman in me develops I realise how difficult this time of year is to run the business; understanding peoples needs to be shrewd with their money and the pressure that Christmas brings, but trying to promote the importance of giving yourself a little bit of you time within this busy and sometimes stressful period. (Business Plug: there is a 1/3 off ALL treatments through December, also gift sets and gift vouchers available!!)

To me Christmas is about relaxing, switching off to the routine that dictates our life for 50 weeks of the year and remembering how to laugh, love and appreciate the friends and family around us who have seen our ups and downs over the past 12 months and are still there to share this special time.

I heard recently that it is important to recognise your values, speak them out, write them down recognise what is important to you as an individual within your family, relationships and work life. If these values are complimentary in all areas of our lives then we will find a satisfaction in all we do and work towards a truly happy life.

Here our business values are to be Successful, Honest & Professional to name but 3. As a business woman I strive daily to portray these values in all that we do (and most people are able to quickly find their career and work values). But do these work hand in hand with what we aspire to be as a family member. It is sometimes hard to juggle the expectations you put on yourself and what others put on you.

For me being successful in business  counjures up images of working hard, diligently staying long hours and showing determination to concentrate all my efforts on the  development of my business (your work, career.) For me the question is how I attain that level of success in both my business and family life because my values there are the same Success, Honesty, Happiness.

Do I work as hard at both? Can I split my time constructively in order to devleop both areas simultaneously? These are questions I pose to myself for the New Year. As a business woman, mother, wife and friend will I ever feel like I do any of these roles well….probably not but recognising where I need to try harder is a start.

The business has done well this year and I would just like to say a huge THANK YOU to everyone who has supported us and spread the word about who we are and what we do.

If I don’t get chance to see you before Christmas have a Very Merry Christmas!

Who am I?

This is a very good question, like most women I have numerous roles but discovering the business woman in me has been a hard road. Ruthless at times and caused many frustrating tears.

This is turning out to be one of the most challenging times of my life but what I found is I love every minute.
