I read and think a lot and would like to share with you the things of interest I find. I believe that people should be taught how to think and not what to think and so some of the posts here will be out of the ordinary.
All my posts will have commenting available and I look forward to listening to your views.
This is an ongoing area of my life, today I wanted to share with you one of the vital components of PD.
It is essential that you associate with people who are on the same journey and are positive and will encourage you through your not so good days. It is said that you become the average of the five people whose company you are in most. To fully develop, you may have to change your circle of associates and/or friends.
That’s what popped into my head this morning and I trust you can adjust to accommodate this improvement.
Have a Terrific Tuesday 😊

I have heard a lot about this online bank and got chatting to a girl in Cafe Carrera and were talking about all things online, so I thought why not have an online bank and opened a Monzo account in minutes.

I am now using this as my principal bank account, paying my standing orders and direct debits from here.
The app is so intuitive and keeps you bang up to date and you can self impose a monthly spending limit, save money in a pot for a rainy day or your next big purchase.
My card arrived within 4 days and it’s really easy to set up.

Living a location independent and laptop lifestyle I like going to coffee shops and as I live in Paisley in Scotland I was delighted to notice a new coffee shop called Cafe Carrera which is located in the old Auld’s bakery shop.
They serve up breakfast items including omelettes, a wide selection of sandwiches, toasties, focaccias and paninis, potato wedges and salads.
They also have a wide range of teas, coffees & syrups and soft drinks.
Head over to their Facebook page and give it a Like here.
