Listening to Emily Maguire on the radio

When we wake up in the morning the radio goes  on a few seconds offer the kettle. This morning I was greeted by the dulcet tones of Claire Balding and Father Brian Darcy and now I am listening to Emily Maguire talking about being a songwriter whilst suffering with bipolar. I know mental health is a huge problem and have lost both family and friends to the ravages of this seldom talked about illness. The British stiff upper lip is the problem. Pull yourself together is the standard diagnosis. Someone in the depths of depression needs help not ignorance. Mental health issues are so easy to dismiss. We all think that it can be overcome with a brave face and put your best foot forward attitude.

Bank Holiday? Come and visit Margate and the Isle of Thanet

Bank holidays come around thick and fast this time of the year so what better excuse do you need to get away from it all and come and visit our wonderful Island the Isle of Thanet. Book a long weekend in one of our great hotels or visit for a day. Sun sea and sand. With over twenty some odd miles of golden sandy beaches and bays lots and lots of things to do, you really will be smitten with Thanet. There is something for everyone, bold and brash or chilled and relaxing. I am not going to tell you what to do or where to go, I want you to have your own seaside adventure. I have heard Thanet described as the Kentish Riviera and I shall not disagree. Countless travel writers have contributed endless column inches extolling the virtues of this wonderful stretch of coastline I feel my efforts would be wasted. Just come and see like I once did, I married a local lass and have been here over thirty years and I love living here. Come a see what has kept me here. And dont forget Dreamland opens for the summer season this weekend.
