Gush, pour, splash!

Massive April rainstorms! The weather isn’t what we had hoped for so we will just have to get on with it and make our own sunshine! ‘The world is as we are’, which means it’s how we choose to react and respond to the world around us that creates our world, how we view opportunities…

Rusty Spring!

Whilst nature is trying it’s best, Spring is a little damp and rusty so far! Saturday’s Sunshine got me in to the ‘Spring mood’ with some alfresco dining (Brunch), window shopping and late afternoon dog walking in the woods. My heart, and face, smiled as I listened to the birds, observed the budding trees and…

Drip, drop, drip!!!! Yup, it’s raining again, which does affect our motivation to get outside and play! Well it certainly does if you are a little Dachshund called Lili with short legs and a tummy so close to the mud! I shall don my waterproofs and negotiate the puddles and drag out my ‘minis’ (JRT’s and…

From Blackpool to Barcelona!   

I took an opportunity to stretch my wings and flew to Barcelona for the long Easter weekend. A far cry from my drive to present at the IFS conference in Blackpool the weekend before! Everyday we took in the sites, trekked the mountains and explored the monuments. A very active yet still refreshing break. It’s…

Make snowballs when the snow falls!

Which is the seasonal equivalent of making hay whilst the sun shines or lemonade when life hands you lemons. I could have moaned about my course being postponed and losing a day’s pay (again) due to the weather but instead I decided to get up and play with the dogs in the snow, something I…

Apparently it’s Spring?

The daff’s are popping up their golden heads and promising us longer days and hinting at some sunshine. The birds are up and at ‘em getting their early worms and singing their dawn chorus. I’m soooooo ready for spring. Our thoughts often turn to a spring clean around our house, wardrobes and bodies too (we…

I have been training with Helen for over three years and attending one of her weekly classes. She is very professional in her work and is an inspiring instructor. In her private gym she works me hard yet within my own capabilities. We also share in laughter which is of course a great tonic for stress. Her private gym sessions are dedicated to my individual (and ever changing) needs, which is the key to success. Helen has expertise in so many areas of her industry and is a caring and confident trainer and her sports massages are second to none!
