What can I say about New York City? It's phenomenal, it's dynamic, it takes your breath away! But you got to watch yourself on the pavement - New Yorkers don't do that little polite 'dance' we do where we slightly dodge someone coming towards us - they'll just plow straight into you if you don't move over!
Otherwise encountered many fab New Yoikers...yep, New Yoik...I'm affecting the accent!
I hadn't been for 15 years and had an amazing time with family - saw the biggest of the sites - Empire State building, did the harbour cruise and went to Ellis Island and saw the Statue of Liberty, went to High line park, Brooklyn, Chelsea, Soho and ground zero which was ever so moving and the memorial fountains are beautiful - a place of contemplation.
And after an amazing week of tasty food and all those sites it's good to be home... what's that line? There is no place like home! Even when it's grey and misty :-)
Lovely to read that Christina Schmid has found love three years after being widowed. She's been courageous in championing our soldiers having the right kit after her bomb disposal expert husband Olaf [Oz] was killed in the line of duty. I wish her the best of luck! And remember to widen your circle of opportunity - you might meet someone in a coffee shop queue as she's evidently met her new man.
On my weekly Love Clinic on iVillage UK I tackled one woman's dilemma... it was about having sex out of doors with her husband and loving it. But it raise some important questions about their relationship.
TODAY’S TIP: sometimes you do something that you think will improve your relationship [like having fun al fresco sex] but it can raise questions like - were you actually bored before hand? Or was your partner boredom maybe that's why they suggested it?
Always begin with the positive - the fact you two enjoy doing something new. Then move on to any anxiety it's raised and be calm and confident in tackling it - don't make a mountain out of a molehill.
Enjoy the rest of your bank holiday Monday, Pamx
My new book The Emotional Eater's Diet is published in the UK on May 15 - I’m very excited as I hope emotional eaters - women or men will find it helpful. Each year 2/3s of people start a diet and 20% start a new diet each month. Yet 95% of diets aren’t successful.
I firmly believe that emotional eating to soothe difficult feelings is the culprit behind most of this failure. My book has a huge range of practical tips/strategies to help understand your emotions and manage your appetite. There are mini-quizes and real case studies.
It’s available to preorder on Amazon. Please remember that food can fuel your energy needs but not your emotional needs. Take care!
