Though well intentioned, New Years Resolutions can be, a recipe for disaster. Getting caught up in the hype and pomp of saying goodbye to the old, we tend to see the New Year as a chance to make a fresh start. Hence, we tend to make such resolutions over ambitious.

We have more courses, next one on Saturday, 4th October 2014. Will be updating the list today and tomorrow so do check back on our SHOP for more details and do sign up for one.

Another Mother's Day dawns today. For the last couple of weeks I had promised, swore to, myself that I'd avoid the internet like the plague today. Before two weeks ago though my plan from last year was to have a gorgeous blog post all about the 'Irish Mammies' and celebrate the day in a flourish of happiness. As those of you who know me are aware I lost a child in 2000 through miscarriage and last November I found out my mother had left us all.
