Hi there. A friend asked me recently to draw a little character for the logo of their new blog, so I wanted to post it on the blog. The site is good fun and is called kitchenidiots.com, so do go and have a look, especially if you struggle in the kitchen department!
A humungous Happy Christmas to you and your families wherever you may be!
Mucho thanks / merci beaucoup / vielen dank … for all your support and encouragement these past few months with the blog. I’ve really enjoyed meeting so many wonderfully inspiring people.
I am looking forward massively to all the adventures 2013 will bring. Lots of ideas and projects in the pipeline.
I wish you a fruitful and exciting New Year.
(And thanks to Katharina and her two children from Zazumove for her part in inspiring the idea for the card above.)
Yoga is The Juice. Can’t be TipTop without it!
What is the “go to activity” that gets you mentally and physically in the zone?
Next week: how to prepare for parenthood, TipTop style.
This was inspired by a recent Radio 2 interview with none other than Art Garfunkel. In this rare interview, amazingly, even in this day and age, Garfunkel mentioned that he has never owned a mobile phone or computer. As such, he said he feels “untethered”.
He also talked of how much he enjoys walking. So much so, that he’s already walked round every State of America. Plus, he’s currently walking round Europe I believe.
I’m not suggesting we should all be like him and not own phones or computers. I love my i-Phone and besides, where would we be without computers? However, I am keen to promote a return to basics: Fresh Air is The Don at helping us feel good, and a balance has to be healthy. So let’s remember that the next time we are craning our necks or squinting our eyes at a screen, or feeling cabin feverish at our work desks.
And here’s to you, Mr Garfunkel… A reminder to us all to turn off our phones and machines, tread out and kick down some cobble stones, and breathe in the goodness of fresh air: 3 steps to feelin’ groovy.
TipTop urges you to spread this Health Message to CyberWorld!
Next week: more Health and Well-being, according to TipTop
Any of these sound or look familiar? No doubt there are plenty more ideas, but I try all these on my two-year old daughter, Isla, with varying degrees of success. Parents need tons of sneaky strategies in their repertoire!
If you are a parent, which strategy works/worked for you?
If you’re not a parent, can you invent a bonkers way to get the job done?
Next week: Trust, According to TipTop.
(Sorry I’m a day early in publishing this week. Just got excited.)
Have a TipTop rest of the week,
