Stress and construction

Stress and construction

Right now the top half of my home is full of construction workers fixing our roof and replacing the guttering. It is a job that needed doing, but the constant noise and having people around us is really stressful.

Mindfulness is self care

Mindfulness is self care

Inspiration can come from the most unlikely places at times, and today it more or less smacked me round the head!
