I was selected to attend an event at the London Frame Studio
organised by Total Greek yoghurt and of course I dragged my
American guest along with me to share the experience.
We were happy/nervous pupils being taught how to Rumba, Salsa
and Tango by the pros - Dee Thresher celebrity fitness expert and
Jesรบs Reyes Ortiz Jr dance instructor from the US.

 O' yes, it was a PROPER work out whilst trying to not look like the odd ones out
...hard work! However, it was fun and very friendly, which helped us shake off
any embarrassment or pressure.

The class was rounded off nicely with a generous spread of tasty food,
refreshments and other great stuff courtesy of Total Greek yoghurt.
If you don't like the gym, this could be an alternative keep fit method for you.

Now I have the hunger for more Rumba dancing so 'Strictly Come' or 'Dancing with' -
here these happy feet come!

More Fun on the Floor

This time it was fun on the 6th floor, where I ate lunch at the London Ken…


DATING ADVICE    keeping you in the know                                

Dating is always a popular topic on people's lips and many of us still
need help with some dating advice.
Just as an intro into this discussion, I want to share with you my
'Shoe Analogy' which I often use to simply describe the status of
relationships amongst friends, now you may find it useful so keep
on reading.
Some of us have had our fair amount of shoes and arguably too many
shoes (relationships) so with that said; it may be time to use my
analogy to assess our dating and mating.
 THERE are soooo many shoes that could replicate or have some similarity to
 the status of our dating in some respects...


Seriously these are the pair of shoes that look great
in fact we can go as far as to say they look PERRRFECT!
However, there is no way in hell your feet will fit in
them; they squeeze, choke, strangle your toes - 
causing blisters and discomfort.

Does this relate to you? Maybe you knew the shoe wouldn't
fit cause it was a size smaller but chose to ignore
that fact because you simply wanted it so bad even though
it wasn't right for YOU. This may seem like a familiar

I would suggest you detach yourself and get over it...
because you will not be able to make it right for you
and the longer you stay in it you will only experience
pain. There are other shoes out there that will provide
comfort and suitability.


Now you know these won't last you but that's
okay you know their limitation and accept it.
You don't care much about these shoes even if
they look alright, it's not as if they are
like your ole faithfuls.

If this compares to your relationship then
you may be temporarily happy and fully aware
this is not a long term relationship. In fact
few of your friends and family actually know
about this relationship/affair of convenience.

The friends with benefit or booty call buddies
will definitely compare to this analogy.
Booger Boots
You’ve made a bad purchasing decision if you
have an overpriced clunky, heavy and weighing
you down; your using more energy than necessary
when you wear them.Very deceiving, as they look
sturdy, reliable and supportive.
But you soon realise that they are not adding
much value but you wont throw them out for
several reasons, you don’t want to admit that
you have wasted your money and hope they will
be useful in the long long long run.
This relationship is physically and financially
draining and not adding value to your life and
certainly not helping to build a good quality
It’s difficult to admit to yourself that you
have made a bad choice in your life and it seems
easier to hold onto the ‘dead weight’. Let go and
you will have free hands to open the door to your
future with a suitable person.

These shoes are special in every way.
You love them! Great fit!
Don't carry the risk of bunions. They won't
trip you up and won't wear thin where you
feel every pimple on the pavement.
Are you worried about how much you spent on
them? Nah! They may be costly but you are
not worried about that. They provide comfort
so priceless and worth every penny. Longevity
is as good as guaranteed so you take good care
of them! One to give you bragging rights.
This indicates compatibility with your
mate which is key as it provides
undeniable happiness, which in turn
enhances better health.
Once you are fortunate to have that in
your life, you know you should hold on
and not risk anything getting between it.
You recognise the value it adds to your
life and feel committed to making the
relationship work.


Only wear them when needed. I call those
the specialist shoes which are only
used for a specific reason which warrant
frequently switching them. When the reason does
not exist - the purpose for the shoes expires.
This is potentially unfair relationship and I will
explain. All shoes have a purpose; we all have a
purpose but when you are using a person for a
particular reason without being clear about that
reason with the other person and
they are not aware of the purpose...you could be
deemed nothing more than a "user" or a deceptive
- not good, so simply be just be a fair person
There are many more shoes like the fake
designer shoes or even the sole-less shoes
after you've broke them in.
Not all shoes are bad, I will share more
about my Shoe Analogy in the coming weeks.
