I am female, white, British, over fifty, Celtic, professional, politically left, socially conservative. I have met some loss and adversity – much of it my own fault.  I wanted to communicate some thoughts about how to survive and thrive in this moment, in this part of the world – early 21st century, Western Europe; I also want to know other people’s thoughts, should I collect any readers.

I wanted to explore wellbeing, health, recovery and survival.  There’s not a lot of magical thinking in this blog – I’m more interested in practical tips. I’m not a nutritionist, a doctor or a therapist, so take proper advice before making any changes to your life…

“Do One Thing” comes from the idea that, in most circumstances, you can always do something, even for five minutes, even if it’s just one thing. It’s even more excellent if it’s free!

Let me know if you have any ideas…


Thank you
