Awhile back now I lamented the end of winter, and revelled in the glory of Summer fresh starts and new changes to routine. This beauty of a beast of a body of mine is ever changing, ever trialling new things and perpetually falling into the love affair that is me and my burritos. Surely one day I’ll wake up as a 40 year old woman with the metabolism and hips of a 23 year old? Right? But then, why the hell would I want that when this body has been battle scarred and loved, and IS loved, and can dance and swim and go for a brisk walk should I feel like it…or even the occasional cardio burst…Should I feel like it that is..

So as Winter rolls back around, (roll being a literally interpretation of how I’m feeling right now) and I am planning my Winter Wardrobe essentials around how many chunky knits I can cover myself in, what better time than now to plan a winter wellness escape, and how convenient it’s right down the damn street.

Laziness Levels Achieved.
