Time To Relax

So recently I've been so busy I'm struggling to fit everything which needs to be done, done and more so, struggling to find time to relax....So I'm trying to find new ways to switch off so I can have some mental space....rather than staying awake until 2 in the morning!

The thing which always works for me is running...this of course is pretty time dependant as you can't always fit it in. However nothing helps focus the mind and relax the body as much as running with or with out some music.

Previously yoga is another one which has worked for me. But again this is really something which you need some time to be able to do.

Sometimes all that is needed is a lovely hot bath and a book....though the last time I tried that I woke up afterwards and couldn't sleep until really late!

What's your tips and tricks on relaxing?

End Of Summer Party

This is long overdue! I've been a terrible blogger...however I have been going out and doing things, which is probably more interesting and a much better way to be!
So at the end of the summer a company called Ecotricity had a wonderful works party, on top of a lovely hill near one of their turbines. If you don't know about Ecotricity, it's worth having a find out, they're an energy supplier with morals! Extremely green and earth positive.
The night had an Alice in Wonderland theme, and drinks included cocktails in teapots and tea one made up for the night called a Mad Hatter, which was vodka, mint, lime, and cucumber with elderflower and soda water....very refreshing and a little lethal! The decorations were wonderful....lots of great ideas for a party.

 The bunting you can see here, was strings of cards simply stapled to ribbon, it was really effective and looked lovely!
