About Me

All About Me and my Rose Tinted World

Hi!  I’m Jo, and it’s all about me! Well, and what my family and I get up to.

Picture of Jo, it's all about me! 

I’ve certainly done a lot with my life so far and have a whole boat load of experiences. I set up this blog to tell you all about them, hoping that I might help you not make the same mistakes. Or maybe point you in the right direction.

There have been quite a few bad situations that I have had to deal with in my life. Over the years I have suffered with depression and self-doubt. My confidence has taken a hit many times, but I have bounced back and got back up again. I also have always had an issue with my weight, I have done every diet out there and been very slim and very heavy.

I am currently doing the Cambridge Diet – see how I am getting on.

But I’ve also had an amazing amount of success in my home, work and personal life. For work, I have been a dentist for 22 years. I am currently doing a lot of sewing. And I am a singer. I have sung all over the world, at the Albert Hall, on cruise ships, at Disney and at the Palladium as a backing singer for Jane McDonald!

But the most important job in my life started just over 3 and a half years ago, when I became a mother at 44 to my beautiful daughter. She has shaped me in more ways than I thought possible. And she is the reason I decided I needed to set up a blog about my life, experiences and thoughts. See, it’s not all about me!


Whether you are a super sewist, mega money maker or just trying to overcome some of life’s hurdles, I’ve created this site for you. Within its pages I’m hoping that I have some for the solutions to the questions that you are asking. Or maybe you just follow because I’m that crazy lady that talks a lot of nonsense. Either way is fine by me!


I used to be constantly overwhelmed!

About 2 years ago I realised that my life was in a rut. Due to pressures at work and changes in my personal circumstances I was constantly overwhelmed with my life.

  • My physical and mental health was suffering
  • I’d put on lots of weight
  • I had no energy
  •  My positivity had just about reached rock bottom.

Things needed to change!

Consequently, I realised that things needed to drastically change, and fast!

I left the job that I had been doing for 22 years, deciding that I wanted to work for myself rather than give my talents to others. As a result of the combination of side hustles, sewing and learning new skills I wanted to be my own boss.

This website is going to share the tools and tricks that I have learnt in my life and particularly over the last year or so.

Living my Dream Life

As a result of all my changes I’ve beaten the negative vibes, overcome the overwhelming challenges and finally got my mojo back! I want to give you all my tips. I am still learning too, but I do intend to share all the answers that I find along the way.

We all deserve a Rose Tinted World.
