I've had a brilliant break over Christmas (and I really hope you did too). I'd say it took me the best part of the first week to calm down and manage to switch off from work after some pretty pressurised stuff happening immediately before the holidays, as well as everything else that happened in 2020. … Continue reading Walking For The Win

I'm a believer in mindset, the power of positive thought, affirmations etc. but sometimes, I find it really hard to change the way I'm thinking about or perceiving something.

At last. Too good an opportunity to miss (and I'm lucky enough to not work Mondays) we loaded up and … Continue reading Sunshine on Deerness!
