My 100 Happy Days #Days 60-80

The idea behind 100 Happy Days is simple. Take a photo or find an image of something that makes you happy for 100 days in a row. The idea is simple but sometimes the challenge is hard.

Here are days 60-80 I cannot believe how time is flying, however, I suppose that Christmas in the middle speeded things up no end.

Twitter – love it or hate it?

One of my Facebook friends recently asked me about twitter. She was unfamiliar with it and knew that I was a regular tweeter. Trouble is, my relationship with twitter has become quite complex.

I still love it, I have several twitter accounts, a couple of personal, a couple of theatre, and I manage accounts for every client that I have. One would say that I am fairly au fait with using twitter. However, it is never straightforward. I use different accounts for different purposes.

Lean In | Sheryl Sandberg | Mini Review 

Official Blurb

Sheryl Sandberg’s Lean In is a massive cultural phenomenon and its title has become an instant catchphrase for empowering women. The book soared to the top of bestseller lists internationally, igniting global conversations about women and ambition. Sandberg packed theatres, dominated opinion pages, appeared on every major television show and on the cover of Time magazine, and sparked ferocious debate about women and leadership.

Ask most women whether they have the right to equality at work and the answer will be a resounding yes, but ask the same women whether they’d feel confident asking for a raise, a promotion, or equal pay, and some reticence creeps in.

The statistics, although an improvement on previous decades, are certainly not in women’s favour – of 197 heads of state, only twenty-two are women. Women hold just 20 percent of seats in parliaments globally, and in the world of big business, a meagre eighteen of the Fortune 500 CEOs are women.

In Lean In, Sheryl Sandberg – Facebook COO and one of Fortune magazine’s Most Powerful Women in Business – draws on her own experience of working in some of the world’s most successful businesses and looks at what women can do to help themselves, and make the small changes in their life that can effect change on a more universal scale.

Make and decorate a Christmas Cake #101in1001 #23

When I was putting together my list of 101 things to do in 1001 days I needed inspiration from my friends. I asked on my Facebook page for suggestions and got a few really good ones (some not-so-good but we don’t need to go into that 😀 )

My great friend Julia almost at once suggested that I should make and decorate my own Christmas cake. I jumped at this challenge because I have never made a Christmas Cake before and have always wanted to. It would also form part of the 10 new recipes and although I didn’t look forward to the icing (I confess, I am not very creative) I thought it would be a fun challenge, particularly when my friend said we should ice our cakes together the week before Christmas! How Christmassy is that?!?

My 100 Happy Days #Days 20-40

The idea behind 100 Happy Days is simple. Take a photo or find an image of something that makes you happy for 100 days in a row. The idea is simple but sometimes the challenge is hard.

OK I admit that often I am posting a day late, I told that I am rubbish at taking photos, getting better though.

Two-fifths of the way through I have had a few adventures. Here’s a link to my first 20 days and here is a rundown of days 20-40.
