still stuck in Bucks

September 7, 2018

After my earlier missive, August proved to be a complete washout for the ailing property market so I’m ‘still stuck in Bucks.’0EC7EF38-E39B-4BC4-BCA9-671FDF1E5546.jpeg

Not exactly inactive, since I’m juggling the demands of the business with the less exciting remit of selling my house.

I was told selling a house featured high on the list of stressors and now I realise why.  Keeping on top of the house so it’s fit for viewings at the drop of a hat, decluttering, decorating to enhance the appearance, liaising with estate agents, keeping an eye on the market and vacating my property for viewings. It’s a cocktail of industry but as yet, there’s not been a positive outcome.

I’ve rejected two derisory offers.  Supposedly a buyer’s market but this seller has to agree to a sale and I’m not desperate to move so potential purchasers on the make can move on.  Nothing to see here!

However, I have seen the perfect house for my requirements, professionally and personally in Berkshire and have put an offer in to demark my interest.  I can follow through, as and when I get a sensible offer and then the ball will start rolling.

In the meantime, life moves on apace.  I’m relishing working with my long-standing clients and new clients, acutely conscious it may only be for a matter of weeks before I’m setting up a new business essentially.  I’ll miss my Buckinghamshire clients although I’m very ready to move on now.

There are elements of life in Buckinghamshire I won’t let go of.  The monthly healing group I’m a member of, the links I have with Chesham Rugby Club (Stags)


I’m a ‘deer friend‘ one of their company sponsors) and also Wycombe Homeless Connection who I started volunteering with earlier this year.  A contact that came about through one of my valued clients who has been working with them for a few years.


On that note, if you’d like to help me raise money for Wycombe Homeless Connection, please consider sponsoring me for an event I’m taking part in this November at Adams Park, Wycombe Wanderers ground  I’d really love to smash my target!

Have a great weekend one and all


News from the James front (August 2018)

February 6, 2008

Right, first off, an announcement and it’s not one you’re necessarily going to like.  I’m moving!  Cue the hankies.

Certainly, Clients who are already in the loop are not exactly enamoured at the prospect but don’t panic, it’s not going to be for a few weeks and when I get chance, she says eyeing up the list-of-lists, I’ll get a list together of local practitioners who you can consult instead.  Male and female, from varying disciplines and locations.  Ask me directly and I’ll recommend individual therapists off the list for you since I know you, your requirements and the likely rapport.


The reason for relocating?  I’ll cut to the chase, I’m a very eager Would-Be Gran (no pressure fam).  I’ve been waiting for this for ages since my opportunity to have a third coveted baby didn’t materialise due to the travails of life.  I’m pinning all my hopes on my two adorable kids to provide the goods, all being well.  Nothing is guaranteed in life but WB Gran is moving in, just in case.  There’s another WB Gran to compete with too … compete is the wrong word I know but logic dictates I set up camp and we sporty types do like a bit of healthy competition.

My son Arthur who’s 25, was married in May this year after 6 years with his lovely partner Amy, now wife; I’m a Mother-in-law, whay hay! and they live in the Thatcham area.  No prizes for guessing where I’m relocating to.

My house is on the market.  Once I get an offer worth considering, I can in turn place an offer and start the ball rolling.  I’ve been househunting in Berks but vendors naturally won’t consider offers until you’re in the game yourself.

This house has served me/us well after 25 years but it’s time to move on and, huge excitement, part of my shopping list is to have my own dedicated treatment room.  Given that I’ve been in business for 21+ years, it’s about time!!

More information as it becomes available but my webmaster Simon Folland and I will be updating the website accordingly so keep an eye out.  There’s also a new dedicated account for the business on both Twitter and Instagram @sportmatters3 and that’s your most immediate source for updates.

Enjoy the sunshine and get out there – #sportmatters🥊
