One of the hardest things to allow ourselves in our busy lives is ‘me time’. There’s always something more important, be that work or family based commitments, and before you know it days turn in to weeks, and weeks roll in to months. Earlier this year I made a conscious decision to gift myself some me time and join Annabel on her Bleak House adventure in Devon. And what a gift it turned out to be! The adventures whilst in Devon, the sea swims, the delicious food and drink, and the time away were incredibly special. For me, the most welcome, and probably least expected element, was the time shared with a group of the most wonderful ladies. I will forever be grateful for the friendships forged. The gift of time is a precious one, and I can think of no better gift than a retreat with Annabel and the wonderful ladies I met.
