How did you handle the outage?

I have to admit I had a little moment when I realised that Whatsapp was down yesterday. I use it for all my contacts. It is so useful for my group exercise classes and to keep in touch with family and friends. Once I knew the internet was ok and I could run my classes […]

And Breath

Are you getting that feeling of change? …summer drawing to a close, schools are back, transitioning to back to the office. A feeling of busyness, to-do lists, planning and perhaps a little on edge, a little anxious. One word. BREATH – We probably don’t think about it much. It’s always there in the background. We […]

Stop and smell the roses

Have you noticed things during the lock down you would not normally? Me too. People’s houses? Pretty gardens? Graffiti? The other day while walking I noticed a fairy door on a local tree.
