I visited Penzance in Cornwall, UK, with a friend for a gloriously fun and sunny weekend last year. It was such a brilliant weekend and we were totally blessed with weather. There is a lido there called the Jubliee Pool. It had fallen into disrepair but had been restored to its former glory and was… Continue reading Jubilee Pool, Penzance
I spent a lovely day in London at the weekend catching up with a friend. We ate good food, drank gin and tonic and she introduced me to the works of the prolific artist, Dale Chihuly, an American glass sculptor. I must admit I had never heard of him, but as soon as I glimpsed… Continue reading New Discoveries!

We had been lucky enough to obtain… Continue reading The Power of Noise

As we all tried to concentrate on our breathing and bring ourselves onto our mats, I realised that I had missed my weekly yoga classes. I had been lazy in the past few months and had… Continue reading Banishing the lazy demons with yoga
We had a whole day to fill on the Sunday before we had to board our train back to London in the evening. What shall we do? Take a bus to St Ives!
