What a fantastic start to the year we had with temperatures unseasonably high but as they say, all good things must come to an end and as I write this it seems that winter is coming. I have suddenly had to get out the jumpers and light the fire. I know - typical Brit complaining about the weather - but I did not come here for this! I don't do cold and wet anymore! I can hear you all screaming that we need the rain - but just over night would be fine by me.
It is the month of love and, although we are not ones for a romantic dinner just because it is Valentine's Day, apparently now we are deemed too old for all that! We are now seen as baby sitters for all such occasions as darling daughter gets wined and dined and whisked off for romantic weekends away. I'm not complaining as it is lovely to spend time with the 'little treasure' but if we have to watch Frozen once more........
As I hinted last month, due to our 25 year anniversary, the Female Focus Publications team are hard at work making some big changes which we hope you like. Pick up next month's copy and you will see the start of these celebrations.
We are already taking bookings for the next issues of Focus on Professional Services - the last issue was over subscribed so get in touch with your local representative to reserve your space!

We’ve recently had our first mini holiday of the year (first of many I hope) to the breathtaking picturesque Sierra Nevada and a fantastic fun time was had by all. I didn't experience skiing as I would probably be the one to end up injured and don't have the time to be out of action, but the pleasure on my little angels face playing in the snow was a delight in itself.
On the home front, my plan to encourage the speedy installation of my new wardrobes paid off, (although I did have to wait for a rainy day) and I must say I am so happy with them, they have completely transformed the look of the bedrooms. The only problem I have now is that I need new clothes to put into my new wardrobes, or maybe not, I think that's pushing my luck a little bit.
So now I know what works….I might have to start gradually buying the tiles I would like for the bathroom and leave them at the entrance way!
We are almost into the month of love and there are many bars and restaurants serving special Valentine's Day menus you will be spoilt for choice. Wherever you go or whatever you do make it a memorable one.
At Female Focus we are always striving to enhance and improve our publications and bring you quality and quantity. With this in mind make sure you pick up our new and improved QF Focus local magazine from 6 March.
