    Hello lovely people – I just got a new role (it’s still a voluntary one) but it is a very meaningful one for the next three years. I had the interview on Monday and the results today, just after pilates – and the horrible woman wasn’t there :). Actually got there early and another person and I spontaneously set up an impromptu yoga session – she…[Read more]

    Oh that’s good news! xx

    Thanks, it was a lovely surprise in the end as I’d sort of forgotten about it – the joy of a heavy envelope! And thanks for your advice too – of course you were freaking out!! Hope all is good now <3

    The horrible woman was at pilates again but it really didn’t matter. I had a lovely chat with someone at the end who is really worried that a health condition she had 12 years ago has come back – she’s paid for a private scan, because the overstretched NHS can’t see her in time and because they outsourced the gym where she works from the council…[Read more]

    • That’s amazing, congratulations on getting that compensation, a yoga retreat sounds like a fab way to use it!
      I had a similar situation to your sister, I had a lump in my breast and was told it was most likely nothing to worry about but that wait for the scan was horrible! I kept it to myself mostly and pretended I was ok but inside I was freaking…[Read more]

    • Congrats on getting your compensation @claloula, phenomenal. You’re a warrior. ♡

    • Well done for persisting. It is a crime in itself the way they treat those who have been mistreated … don’t start me…

    Me too! also YUM!

    I take the dog for walks when I’m on edge all the time. Keep breathing, surf the urges – they pass. Also, it’s possible that you’re grumpy at wine o’clock because you’re missing the sugar rush – a glass of fruit juice, squash or something to eat might help. Keep going xx

    That sounds brilliant, yoga should be the most inclusive thing there is, but I know ashtanga (which I (sort of) practice) can be quite full on and it’s really nice to slow it down. I get so cross with sportswear companies, I think Sweaty Betty was one of them, which have logo laden clothes saying things like ‘no pain no champagne’. My pilates…[Read more]

    aww! a yoga friend used to tell me that I just practiced for ‘wine points’ – and he was probably right. I can’t imagine wanting a drink after a lovely yoga class anymore (though I do go to the café for cake after pilates sometimes). Their loss is our gain! What style of yoga do you teach?

    • SueK replied 2 weeks ago

      Haha, @claloula I used to practice for wine points too!! These days I’m teaching mostly seated/supported classes — so chair yoga, mostly for an older crowd of people who really want to do yoga, but found the regular classes with younger teachers a bit humiliating!! It’s a lot of fun — and it’s amazing how much of a great workout it can be. I say…[Read more]

    It’s bonkers how much I love airports and being in them! I organised a conference about them a couple of years ago – seriously, it was so much fun. I notice now though without drinking how much less stressful it is – I was always watching the displays to see if I could fit in another glass before boarding. Now it’s nice just to sit and airport…[Read more]

    Absolutely! I also find I can’t wait to take it off these days.

    She’s 1 year and 3 months – the scottie in my profile pic! She’s gorgeous and bonkers!

    Aw, thanks! The dog makes me laugh and smile so much too!

    Have just been out with the puppy dog in the snow – and she loves it, bounding about, chasing snowballs and not understanding how when they crash to the floor they’re just like the rest of the snow! It’s sunny too, I came back refreshed – and one major bonus of AF is not really needing to wear foundation cream anymore. I used to have to cover up…[Read more]

    Sounds a fascinating project. If you explain clearly what your understanding of the essay is, then that should help. Hope you get the advice you need.
