Hey, no-one has the right to tell you that you can't be a little crazy sometime!

This is my philosophy.  It’s a Japanese term that means “get up”.    No, it’s not because I sleep a lot, far from it.  It’s about being like a Daruma doll, or a Weeble.  It doesn’t matter how many times, or for what reason you get knocked down, it’s important to get back up.

After all, how do you enjoy life if you are prepared to lie down and submit every time life, (or some numpty) gives you a whack?

So this section of the website is about trials, tribulations, worries, heck even what we’d call a “stroke of bad luck”, and how you can turn them to your advantage.

When life hands you lemons, you don’t have to make lemonade, there are loads of things you can do with lemons, so why not try them all?
