The Power of Nature

I’m not a green finger and gardening generally is not my thing. But… I do love the majestic beauty of a sunflower under the clear blue sky in summer. One of the benefits of lockdown is we were home most of this summer to nurture our garden and so we decided to plan some sunflowerContinue reading “The Power of Nature”

Exploring: The Cotswolds

Last weekend we were in one of my favourite English countryside locations… The Cotswolds. We are quite fortunate as it is just an hour or two drive from our house, depending on which part of the Cotswolds we visit, but it is truly like entering a different world of quintessential sandstone homes and beautiful landscapes.Continue reading “Exploring: The Cotswolds”

Getting Fit Despite COVID…

When lockdown started, I had the best intentions to stay fit, use the time around work and caring for my son to get fit and healthy. Unfortunately, the reality was that I ate more working from home. This was exacerbated by having a hungry three-year-old: when he eats, I snack too!  Then, my work schedule wentContinue reading “Getting Fit Despite COVID…”
