Sometimes The Smallest Things Make The Biggest Difference!

Santas Running On Exeter Quayside

I love Christmas and I love decorating my home in a big way for it. I also love the smaller things about Christmas; such as this cute Christmas bag that my friend has put some presents in for me – the bag in itself is a gift to me.

I also love this cute Christmas card from my parents and the Santas running through the Quayside near my home.

One of the smallest things that makes me happy, are these amazing sugar free/allergen free to me chocolate snowmen. To be able to eat these at Christmas time means so much to me. With multiple food allergies and intollerances, it’s heaven and a pure pleasure for me to be able to not only eat these delicious alternative chocolates, but to feel the magic of Christmas as they each take the form of a snowman.

I remember a time outside of Christmas, not so long ago. I was in my day job and they had run out of salad in the staff canteen. A colleague who works in catering went especially to the kitchen on another floor to make a salad up for me; even though others were waiting, because he knew about my special dietary needs due to my allergies and intollerances. I was so touched by this in my heart, that it is something I will probably never forget. This made me think – Sometimes it’s the smallest things in life, that make the biggest difference.

What smallest things make the biggest difference to you?


About Quirky Books

Published Author of BREAK THROUGH THE BARRIERS OF REDUNDANCY TO GET BACK INTO WORK - AN A-Z 'HOW TO' GUIDE and How To Get Started With Twitter For Absolute Beginners, A Step-By-Step Guide and Asexual Perspectives 47 Asexual Stories: Love, Life and Sex, ACElebration of Asexual Diversity. In a nutshell, my Break Through The Barriers Of Redundancy book is a complete A-Z system for getting back into work, and a comprehensive guide about how you can recover from the devastating effects of redundancy to live the life of your dreams. Although this book is predominantly aimed at redundant workers, the content will prove equally useful to jobseekers or anyone looking to change careers for whatever reason. This book provides eighty benefits and covers twenty-six aspects of redundancy. It’s a system because each of the chapters is broken down into ‘5 components of redundancy’. You need to master all components in order to give you the best chance of success at getting back into work. Because this book takes a holistic view of redundancy, one of the key elements to master first of all is wellbeing skills, before progressing through exploring what options are available to you and later, learning the practical job skills. This book is different because it does not just focus on one element of redundancy, but on the many barriers you need to conquer if you are to successfully get back into work, I show you how to deal with the inner trauma and turmoil of being made redundant (health and wellbeing skills), before focusing on the practical elements such as job skills, and deciding on your future path. I have worked in management roles for seven years. Part of my management duties entailed interviewing, recruiting, training and coaching staff and I took part in every aspect of the recruitment process from placing the advert to completing staff inductions and training. I have also experienced the other side of the recruitment process, when I was applying for work and being interviewed for jobs whilst redundant. I have been made redundant twice and each time managed to successfully work my way back up the career ladder. It is from experience that I have gained insight into both points of view and I am able to help others. This book is the first Quirky Book that I published and it's under my own imprint of Quirky Books. It's unique and groundbreaking because it combines two genres, an A-Z Guide with a How To book. Each of its A-Z chapters is about an element of redundancy, and within each chapter it explains how to do things related to that element to break though your barriers of redundancy and beat your redundancy blues. That’s what makes it a quirky book. Buy it from Amazon UK: Buy it from Amazon USA: Like on Facebook You can view my quirkybooks writing blog at
