Well It Really Works Doesn’t It!

Good morning world and thanks for tuning in to another here on the wonderful world of Planet Magnet where all is right with the world.

It is so nice to be able to say that after spending years and years not actually managing to really raise a smile some days that I honestly feel like a different person.

I have more energy, more desire, feel brighter, more alert and most of all, just feel generally better all over.

My mental health is a great deal better, my energy levels are, on the whole, vastly improved, my outlook brighter and my own personal well being is in a completely different place to where it has been for many years.

As I approach my 1 year “surgiversary” I am amazed at quite how much much my life has changed beyond all recognition. I know I have written about this before but I simply cannot stress enough the changes to my entire life that have occurred since I have started to “live right”

Good Morning world and thanks for tuning in to another beautiful sun shining day here on Planet Magnet, except this day is a little unusual because I am performing something known as a reblog of a friend’s post yesterday.

The reason?

We’ll it is simple really, she wrote a post about me and because of that, I could not let here kind words go unacknowledged so today I reblog and hope that you all like Lynz page yourselves!

You Are Not Alone

I am here with you….*

Good morning world and thanks for tuning in to the last day of the working week, here on Planet Magnet…

What a great week this has been, lots to do and plenty has been accomplished. People seen, coffee’s had, catch ups completed along with working, writing, chores and much more. In fact yesterday whilst I was working I had tuned out so much (due to the tedious nature of the job in question) that when I came back to reality I thought I was talking to myself, only when I discovered my lips weren’t moving I realised I was having an internal dialogue with myself…..


Oh yes, this one here has internal dialogues with himself when he isn’t paying attention. How scary is that!

Archie And The Worlds Biggest Fridge Magnet

Good morning world and thanks for tuning in to another wonderful, bright and sunny day here on Planet Magnet.

I am having a lovely day so far having enjoyed a leisurely breakfast and a walk into the local town where I met a friend for coffee and afterwards, had a wander round the local market place which I am sure you will all agree is quite pretty.

19 Weeks To Save My Life….

I know I know, a little bit dramatic, a little bit “A year to save my life” but also a little bit true….

And NO, I don’t need anyone to help to save my life so stand down all…!

Good morning friends and thanks for tuning in to another day here on the wonderful world that is Planet Magnet. Where full stops and comma’s appear at random and capital letters have a life of their own, springing up as they see fit.

But then I don’t think you guys would have it any other way would you….?

So what’s this title all about?

Well today I was supposed go to the gym to discuss my training schedule for the next four months and I was excited to say the least, unfortunately I have just received a text to say that the trainer in question has been sent home for looking a bit ill…!
Probably just as well we don’t trouble him with tasks such as training me, I need his head to be completely clear and focussed. This means the appointment will postponed until next week and I will no doubt report on it then.

Tasty Tuesday Brings A Winter Warmer….

Good afternoon world and thanks for tuning in to another day here on Planet Magnet. Firstly I must apologise for not writing this yesterday (sorry Fiona, I know you don’t like me apologising 😉 )but I ran out of time through the day and then was a poorly little chap in the evening after a stomach upset that appeared to stay all day and worsen enough in the evening to make me take to my bed.
Anyway, I am feeling brighter now so here we go….

Tasty Tuesday and one of my most favourite things EVER…

Ham, Chicken and Lentil Soup.

It is AWESOME even if I say so myself!

So here’s how you too can make it.

Slow Down, You Move Too Fast…

You got to make the morning last, just kicking down the cobbled stones, looking for fun and feelin’ groovy…..*

Good morning world and thanks for tuning in to another day here on Planet Magnet. I hope today finds you well and firing on all cylinders, ready to meet the week with a renewed vigour. The weekend is now behind us and the week stretches into the distance. Some of us will not see the going of the week and some of us will see it drag on as though time passed like molasses in winter.
Personally I am fortunate enough to be in the former camp with always so much to do that I struggle to find time to do anything other than literally getting on with life. I honestly never seem to slow down and if I am honest, that is the way I like it!

Wear Gratitude Like A Cloak

And it will feed every corner of your life – Rumi.

Good morning world and thanks for tuning in to another day here on Planet Magnet. Today is Sunday and as ever, for most it is a time to relax and enjoy a slower pace of life, to be a little more thoughtful and to consider the life you already have as being one that is maybe not so bad after all when we compare it to the terrible things we bare witness to on a daily basis as CNN, Sky News and the BBC like to share with us in a bid to keep up the ratings. Whether is be , war, refugee’s or inclement weather we see it plastered across our screens and it shows us that things are hard, times are tough and because of this we frown, we worry and we turn in toward ourselves hiding away from what we already have in our own lives that can make us happy.

–The quality of being thankful; readiness to show appreciation for and to return kindness.

Oprah Winfrey was noted to say “Be thankful for what you have, you will end up having more, if you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never, ever have enough”

The Worlds Biggest Fridge Magnet Ate My Kitten…Cont…

Good morning world and thanks for tuning in to the weekend on here on Planet Magnet. Now I know that you probably have better things to do than sit reading my blog but I reckon you came back today because yesterdays headline really piqued your interest and you just had to find out what I was talking about.

Well, I can now report that mad old ladies with a house full of cats will be pleased but unfortunately their natural enemy the dog may be a little disappointed.

I did not eat any kittens.

To be honest, I did not even see any kittens let alone have any sautéed with some garlic and black pepper and serves on a bed of puppy dogs tails….

The Worlds Biggest Fridge Magnet Ate My Kitten

Good morning world and thanks for tuning in to another day here on Planet Magnet. It is Friday and the world is aglow with the hustle and bustle of the upcoming weekend. People are in  good (or at least better) moods as they see the opportunity to rest up or at least concentrate on themselves for the next 48hrs.

It is at this point I must apologise.

I went away from desk and the blog post launched and I wasn’t here to finish it!


So what is the title all about?

The Worlds Biggest Fridge Magnet Ate My Kitten….?
