Many thanks to Kingston University (London) for having me as a featured guest on their monthly Wellbeing Wednesday Chat last week! 

Accessible to all University staff, it supports and promotes mental and physical wellbeing.
I shared some of my knowledge on how to keep your voice healthy, particularly with so much time spent talking at screens these days. 🖥 🙂

AstraZeneca, first dose ✅

Put my name down on the list at my local vaccination centre a few weeks ago. 
In case of any leftover or unclaimed doses because my age group wasn’t due yet. 

Got a call at 10 am on Sunday and was vaccinated 1 hour later. 

Looking forward to getting out and about more as the UK slowly opens up. 

Thank you NHS 🙏

When you get unexpected news from a music syncing library in Paris, France, to say that a recording you sang on 10(!) years ago was recently used on French TV. 🇫🇷
Merci beaucoup!! 🙏

Interesting- places-I-teach-from-virtually: this car in San Francisco, USA. 
Because sometimes the show must go on even if the circumstances aren’t ideal. 🚘 

Some clients would have cancelled their session and waited till next week but not this one. 
This one is an Olympic athlete and what I’ve learned from working with this person is that consistency matters. 

Circumstances don’t need to be perfect. 
What matters is showing up and doing the work.
Even when you feel you can’t give it as much as you think you should. 
It all has an effect even if you can’t see or feel it right now - it’s happening, it’s just under the surface for now. 

Consistency matters. 
Just show up.
Leave the rest.

Thank you to my all my clients for teaching me too 🙏
