I wore a dress & put red lipstick on! Those that know me on a day to day basis will know how far removed from the ‘norm’ this is for me (especially a dress with colour & patterns!) ❤️

It’s a Saturday night night & I’m in bed already so I’m throwing it back to a pic of last Saturday night. 
Who doesn’t love a toilet selfie?! 😂

Growing up I always felt like I didn’t fit in. 
I’m still very much a loner but that’s not a bad thing any more. I love being a misfit. 
I get to flit from group to group, finding the most incredibly interesting people and making friends from many walks of life. 
Be a misfit!

I wasn’t going to share this as two out of my three kids look slightly demonic (normal for us), however, this is the only photo I have of all 4 of us together since the beginning of August (2 months ago).
We’ve had such a shitty couple of weeks but here we are, in one piece, still together, still fighting through it. xxx

My best mate Polly is a life coach. I didn’t always get it, if anything I was a bit anti, until she started coaching me and it had a huge positive impact! In this video we chat ‘why coaching’. @pollycharnley

Kayaking & a business chat out on the water to plan for a World Record Attempt!
Kayaking & a business chat out on the water to plan for a World Record Attempt!
The fastest solo & unsupported record breaking crossing of the North Atlantic by kayak was achieved by Pete Bray (former SAS) in 76 days (2001), when he paddled from St John's, Newfoundland, Canada, to Belderrig, Ireland.
This morning I was privileged to go sea Kayaking with Pete in Plymouth & have him teach me the very best tricks of his trade. 
IG video to follow later but this man is INCREDIBLE!
Pete now runs @pbadventures60 with brother Clint (equally as awesome). If you’re looking for Kayaking or Bushcraft adventure in Devon / Cornwall, DON’T go anywhere else!
Watch this space too as Pete has a huge adventure planned that will give him another @guinnessworldrecords title & I plan to get involved 🙌
Corporate sponsors needed! DM for more info.

When I see this photo, so many things come to mind. 
Here’s some honesty . . . 
There are many positives in this picture but the devil inside me sees the one negative & it chants it at me.
I’m not just adventuring I’m on life’s adventure but it’s not easy to stay focused unless you work at it, especially when you are a parent with a job & other responsibilities.
For context, here are this pics positives;
Mountains, nature, scenery, adventure, outdoors, fresh air, sunshine, lake, freedom, quality time, great brands supporting me, charity fundraising, achievement, serenity, nipples 🤷‍♀️
& the negative? 
My little mummy tummy is so visible. 
I hate it but I should love it & that’s why I hate it even more!
I’ve had 3 children, all complicated pregnancies, all huge & two delivered by c-section so that little bit of tummy should be ok. I’ve put on (for me) a bit of weight over the last 10 months off training due to surgeries. 
I have to work really hard to push the negative away and soak up the positives. 
Keep working with me, soaking up those positives so that they far outweigh the negatives & . . . keep adventuring!

When people start a charity it’s usually because they recognise the need, the gaping hole in the system, the desperate situation.
@jason_carl_fox & @jamie1975x began @rock2recoveryuk out of necessity, a need.
You cannot begin to imagine how many lives this incredible organisation has helped.
I’ve known Jason for 12 years & despite the TV stuff, he’s still the shy, daft & humble human he’s always been.
As for Jamie, what can I say. He’s honestly one of the best people I know (& he’d hate me saying that) & I adore him. 
Please support Rock 2 Recovery in any way you can.

Another day, another daysack.
Being outside makes me happy but when I’m in a downward spiral it’s hard to find my mojo.
The link between knowing what makes you happy and DOING what makes you happy is a precarious one that takes work.

Throwback to this time last year plodding around in the Rainforest in Hawaii. 
I have to be honest. I love mountains, I love the Ocean, I love the jungle but I didn’t love Waikiki & the Big Island / Oahu.
When I get the chance to go back to Hawaii I will definitely head to the smaller islands to avoid the sheer devastation of homelessness and the issues it brings. The contrast between rich and poor is heartbreaking & wasn’t something I’m comfortable to add to as a consumer.
I can however, highly recommend a jungle trek to a waterfall! 💦 •

During International Ops Training with @teamrubiconuk last week I made several video clips which I put together in iMovie. 
I wasn’t asked to, I like to document things through video and was originally just going to share it with the team.
However, at the end of day 1, an unexpected tasking was to present a daily reflection.
Luckily I was able to use the video footage to say what my written words couldn’t have.
This is one of the clips!
•
Sadly, the blisters I talk about in this clip caused me to VW 24 hours later. I had pushed on throughout the day and all night, through torrential rain, wind, cold & all the tasks presented to me.
Due to missing the taskings & Yomp on the last day I wasn’t able to pass the course but I can’t let that stop me on my mission to becoming a Humanitarian & International Disaster Responder. 
I will redo the course when time between other charity work, running two businesses, having 3 kids & a husband with CPTSD allows me some time. •

This holiday has been all about my babies. They have absolutely loved every minute; the freedom to chose what to eat, making new friends, running around with no cares, kids club, kids disco, swimming, the beach, the zoo . . . most of all, they have loved spending every single day with each other. •

We arrived at the beach & I was exhausted. I’d had enough of the kids, the noise, people, crowds, demands, whinging, shouting, crying, moaning, wanting. Everything. 
I needed time. 
Just half an hour to be alone and find my peace. 
I needed to reset the balance. Get outside. Get on the Ocean which is my favourite place to be 💙

I genuinely really enjoy going to events alone. It forces me to speak to people and really listen, with undivided attention.
It was a privilege & an honour to attend @springproutdoor popup at Hoxton Arches this week and meet so many brand representatives with some very cool products that I’m looking forward to trying out!

My weekend started on Thursday when I met these 3 incredible gents for lunch.
It was the last meal before the amazing yet humbling experience that I’ve just had with @teamrubiconuk doing my Disaster Response Operators course. 
Please have a look at them and check out how utterly awesome each of these men are and why I choose to support them in their endeavours.
Please also Check out Team Rubicon UK, perhaps even consider signing up! •

Mermaid at heart. Even when I’m supposed to be on a boat I usually end up in the water 💙🌊

What a team. When your Producer-Director looks like Shaggy from Scooby-Do and your Camera Man wants to be Popeye 🧔💪😂
Three weeks with these buffoons and I couldn’t do it without them. xx

Day off, over 500 miles away from home, hit the water! 🙌
Awesome day sea kayaking & it wasn’t even cold (it’s not that grim up North afterall).

What is your lighthouse? I felt like a ship today & then I saw it. Metaphorical I know but so very true.

Northumbria, you are beautiful. 
I’ve been lucky enough to see a lot of the UK but have never been to the North East before.
The beaches are incredible!
Despite the moody skies I managed a 30 minute mindfulness session alone here today & it was much needed!

Throwback to filming last year. 
It’s crazy to think that this time last year we had wrapped but this year, we haven’t started filming yet.

I’ve never renovated a house before. I’ve always been good at building Ikea furniture but that’s pretty much all I’ve tried.
This week, in just 2 & a half days, I’ve sledge hammered a wall back to breeze blocks, ripped an entire kitchen out almost single handedly, taken doors down, frames out, stripped layers of wallpaper, removed all the old stuff left in by the previous owners. 
It’s been a very trying week in other area of my life & this has been bliss.
I can highly recommend (legally) smashing stuff up when you are stressed!
I’m making videos of it all. I wasn’t going to bother sharing, it’s just for family as they aren’t local & to remind myself of how much I’ve achieved when I’m having rough days.

Today I genuinely felt like I was in the South of France whilst in Cornwall. Warm breeze, tropical vegetation, crystal clear sea, stunning old architecture. 
So #throwbackthursday wouldn’t be complete without a #throwback to my last trip to the South of France when I drove all the way to Toulon via the West then South Coast & home via dinner in Paris and across to the Normadie beaches for sunrise, with my 3 kids in the van.
More adventures await! ☀️ •

This is what happens when I try to take a selfie with all 3 boys in it 🤣
Yes, there are 3 kids in this picture. William was trying to throw himself overboard, Ethan was being his general helpful self & George couldn’t understand why I was restraining him instead of letting him lean over the side! 
Great day had by all, one tired Mummy.

My Mali baby. She drives me insane but I adore her & I miss her as much as I miss the kids when I’m away. 
This mornings walk was extra special because when I took 10 minutes out to do some ‘grounding’ she dropped her stick, lay down with her head next to mine & just stayed, gently breathing next to me.
I managed to capture the moment. 🐕 •

Have had an inspirational weekend on Dartmoor, watching an amazing group of women, some of whom I know & am proud to call friends.
They’ve shown bravery, tenacity, fortitude & mental strength in order to get through a gruelling 48 hour survival exercise by the @royalmarines 
It was a pleasure to capture some of their moments with @lockedonmedia & @eliteairimagery on behalf of @thermcharity 
Before anyone asks why I didn’t take part, I was meant to be away working & spaces had all gone when work was rescheduled. Instead I offered our cinematography & photography business up, free of charge. 
Please congratulate the ladies, give them a follow @rmladies_ & chuck a donation in. They are currently on £20k which is another incredible achievement to add to this story. 👏👏👏

At the end of Mental Health Awareness Week, with a focus on body positivity, I had to share this little gem. 
I’m not very good at self care & then I beat myself up because I’ve over eaten, been unable to train, not bothered washing my face properly, not dyed my grey roots (yup, I’m 38 & have greys, actually whites). I’m not a ‘girly girl’ . I don’t wear makeup every day, my clothing is usually jeans & a T-shirt, I wear caps rather than making my hair pretty. I do t care, I’m comfortable that way.
My wardrobes are full of lovely clothes that I ignore in favour of the comfy & practical stuff. The bottom line is, I’m trying not to care any more. 
My body has birthed 3 babies & lost a few. My face has seen some horrific sights. My skin has lived in & been exposed to the sun & the cold. I’m a bit wrinkly, a bit saggy, a bit squishy & a bit worn but I’m learning not to care. 🤷‍♀️
Oh, & Rasaul mud treatment is fun!

What a week! 
My first open, honest, no holds barred blog post came out Monday courtesy of @__the__forge__  On Wednesday I appeared as a guest on @lorraine to talk about living alongside Post Traumatic Stress Disorder & to raise awareness for Military Complex PTSD. 
I had a fantastic meeting with a couple of incredible entrepreneurs Thursday & got to catch up with @imployable Office Manager & friend @mrsakelly87 who is taking her business world to the next level. (I also voted!)
Today my best friend and entrepreneur Polly from @begladmovement arrives for the weekend. 
After a bit of a rubbish week last week this week really has picked me back up again! 
Surround yourself with incredible people.
In the words of @jamie1975x from my favourite charity @rock2recoveryuk “Amazing things will happen in the company of amazing people” 💛

Thank you to the wonderful staff of the NHS for being as fabulous as you possibly could. 
Sorry I waffled whilst in my post general anaesthetic haze!
We are blessed, as a Nation, to have free access to healthcare. Treat it with gratitude & respect it deserves & in return it will treat you well. 
Surgery ✅
Post surgery tea & toast ✅ 
Home in a day ✅ 
Pain relief daze ✅ 
Nothing to worry about, all done and dusted. To avoid this type of surgery, don’t be female, dont be heading towards middle age & don’t have complicated pregnancies, births and baby losses. 🤷‍♀️

NEW EPISODE ALERT!

Today on the podcast I am talking to the completely amazing Alecia.

If you've been watching Heist on Sky One you will probably recognise Alecia as the no-nonsense talking, highly skilled detective, but there's so much more to this military spouse than that.

In this very open interview, Alecia shares her experiences of working as a police constable whilst her husband was deployed and how PTSD has affected their life since his return.

We also get a behind the scenes look of the Heist, how she helps run Elite Air Imagery, and of course, her work to support families of Royal Marines also suffering with PTSD.

This episode is jam-packed full of resilience and inspiration and is a must listen for any spouse who is living the military life. I really hope you enjoy it.

It’s been a really long few weeks / months already this year. I haven’t been looking after myself & it’s taken it’s toll. Regardless of that, I have work, kids & family to care of. 
Bear with me, & happy belated valentines (I don’t celebrate it, commercial rubbish).

“Close your eyes, picture me, what, who do you see?
I am only one person, 
with one mind, one soul, one heart.
But I have many faces
Can you tell them apart?
Many say I have the face of an angel, strong and wise.
Look a little closer
Can you see the devil in my eyes?” ~ Author unknown •

Have been quieter than usual on social media as I’m fully immersed in a Security Risk Management Consultancy Course with @frontier_risks_group 
7 full on days complete so far and met the lovely Tim this afternoon, who presented the afternoon lecture. •

@camillathurlow you got a mention after referring to the book on @loveisland - Banter at its best when we reminded Tim that the book is more famous than he is! 🤣

Friday night lights. A rare night out for some of my favourite food . . . steak! It’s been one hell of a difficult but rewarding year so far & I can’t explain how much I was looking forward to this meal. Had to cancel two nights in a row but 3rd time lucky.
Belated joint birthday meal ❤️
@millerandcarter @plymouthmillerandcarter amazing service, thank you 🙏 •

I cannot WAIT for the next and final season of Games of Thrones. In the mean time, I’m still buzzing, 12 months on, from my visit to an Ice Palace in Finland that just by chance was doing the Game of Thrones Theme for 2018. The art involved in ice sculpture and the craftsmanship involved in building an entire hotel from ice, is mind-blowingly-impressive!
(ignore the RBF, it’s standard & my first visit inside the ice hotel was to the bar 🥃)

Get me back to the slopes. 
Also just noticed I look like my mum here! We are all guilty of choosing our best angles for insta. This isn’t a great one for me but I don’t care because I was in my happy place when this pic was taken.

It’s the last episode of ‘The Heist’ tonight on Sky One at 9pm. 
I’m honoured & privileged to have been a small cog in the incredible machine that made this happen. 
Thank you @shinetelevision & @skyone for allowing me to be a part of the team & thank you team, for being awesome. ‘Shine TV’ continue to make fantastic factual entertainment shows such as ‘Hunted’, ‘Celebrity Hunted’ (@Hunted_hq) and ‘The Island’ (@beargrylls) and now we can officially add @theheisttv to that list!
It’s been an absolute blast, I’ve made friends for life, have a new passion for television, reminded myself I love investigations, interviewing and running about after ‘baddies’ in the most random of places!
Need to find a new job now, open to offers 😉

Friends are important. Some come and go with happy memories, some are fulfilling a purpose at a particular time in your life (& you theirs) & some have been around forever & know you better than everyone else in the world.

A throwback to Skiing in Finland earlier this year. This was the getaway that changed my mindset. I found peace, some self appreciation & managed to reset my goals and perspective. If you get a chance to escape for some tranquility & soul searching I can’t preach enough about being outside, close to nature. ❄️ 🍁 🔥 🏔 🌊 •

Sometimes all we need is the company of good friends to lift us and make our hearts feel warm.
Surround yourself with good people.
