A few weeks ago I got a call from Michelle Kent, PT and Sports Massage Therapist. I stupidly thought she was going to ask me about her new re-brand, which she did in the end, but began by asking if I'd return to her Wednesday morning circuit training class, caught totally unawares of course I replied 'yes.' Without a minute to think, I just thought... 'well I really need to go' hence my reply. Michelle then went on to say she was ready to pick up from where we left off last year having started her re-brand from Kent Country...

I'm not sat in my running leggings and a sweatshirt today, I am fully kitted out in a smart blouse and grey loose trousers, hair blow dried (it always is but but I spent more time on it this morning). New smart Veja trainers, I'd love a neon pair (note to self), make up, the lot. Working from home for me is all about structure, commitment, discipline and being organised. I found it challenging over Easter with my daughter home from school, husband off on holiday and my son who is convalescing after a knee op. Although I've got through...

I've felt cooped up the past few weeks, but today I feel Spring is very much on the way. Walks are my thing but I guess we've all had enough of being in doors, so the lighter days will make all the difference. I'm working on several Shopify projects, one large one who's start has been delayed but I hope to be able to get on with that next week. There isn't much point starting until I have what I need, although the mock up has been approved. The second site is partly started, it involved adding some more click...

I've taken to making trips out into the back garden to see how my many bulbs are coming up. Not usually one to wish my life away but like most I am looking forward to Spring. I planted a whole host of new tuplips, sick of always forgetting to, of course last year I had more time to think and plan. My next project in the garden is growing some green beans, I've drawn myself a plan of how and when to sew the seeds and make sure I get all the equipment I need. It's been a busy but...
