1, This wonderful quote from Glennan Doyle - find her here online

Let's all do the next right thing, one thing at a time!

2. My International Women's Day / Month reading list

The Guilty Feminist is wonderful, if you haven't listened to the podcast, do so now
Deborah Frances White is a legend! Listen to the Guilty Feminist Podcast here :)

I love Caitlin Moran's Stuff, I read "How to be a girl" end of last year, now to read "How to be a women"

Then two books from my favourite newspeople, and I bought "feminists don't wear pink, and other lies" today, because the title made me curious!

Walk on the Wild Side for International Women's Day

It's been a really heavy couple of weeks, at work and home. Today; I fled for the hills with the wild blowing in my hair, to do some thinking, get some me time and generally escape. It was such a beautiful winter's day...There were lots of fellow walkers, but I still found my peace that i needed.

As is always the case, once I was up there walking, my head felt lighter, i could breathe and I drank in the amazing views. The mountains were so close, you could almost touch them!

This quote says it all!

Trees, views, my favourite tree - bliss!
