As a young child and teenager, I was bullied. As an adult, I have been bullied. These experiences prompted me to write my poem ‘Lips’.
I recently had the poem ‘Lips’ skilfully made into a film by the brilliant Mellow 9 Productions. So thankful for this.
The poem and film focuses on the traumatic impact of bullying and how important it is to reach out to and seek comfort and refuge from those who can support us.
I currently use my poetry film ‘Lips’ in poetry, self esteem and anti-bullying workshops. Please contact me for more details and to book a workshop.
Bullying affects more people than we realise.
Watch the film here!

A Quick, Homemade Vegan Country Cake Recipe
I fancied a vegan cake snack treat. Something comforting and warm. Natural with no sugar.
I threw together, very quickly, a few ingredients and mixed them together in my smallest baking bowl.
After 15 minutes, I covered the bowl with a lid, while it finished baking, so it didn’t dry out too much.
20 minutes later!

A moist, sweet enough, no sugar-egg-dairy cake.
Satisfied my snack craving as well as my desire for the aroma of home baking throughout my house (who doesn’t love that smell). Yum!
The ingredients are approximate:
I Cup organic Oats
1 Cup Spelt flour
2 x Tbsp Agave nectar
1 Medool date chopped
1/2 Over-ripened banana
1 Squeeze of Fresh orange juice, from
1/2 Organic orange
1/2 Cup Alpro Coconut rice drink (or use almond milk or other Coconut Milk varieties)
1 Tsp coconut oil
1 Tbsp Sunflower oil
2 x Tsp Cinnamon
1 Tsp Vanilla extract
1 Tsp of baking powder
Oven: 160° Fahrenheit
Unfortunately, there are no photos of the whole cake, as I ate it very quickly!

I recently discovered there is an official World Self Love Day. On checking the date closer, I realised it falls on the same day as my Birthday! How apt!

So today, as well as celebrating My Birthday with family and friends, I will cultivate love for myself. This is the greatest form of love we can have. Without this, we cannot receive the love we desire!
Happy World Self Love Day!
