Can see why Ludlow is the food capital of the UK. Just a simple burger and chips but delicious and a salad you actually wanted to eat instead of a few sad slices of tomato and some limp lettuce. Such a bargain too.
Also found fabulous a period homeware shop where we bought new light fittings for landing at home and the snug. Almost looking forward to going home to fit them now but will be so sad to leave. Teenage son amused himself walking around looking at their “vast array of knockers and knobs” - oh to be a 14 year old boy and so easily amused!!
We all need a break, even if we don't want to admit it! If that's you, our yoga retreat at @walcothall in September may be what you're unknowingly craving! Link in bio. 🌿
I am like everyone woman who has worked full time and had children. Of course, I thought I was a superwomen and could do everything two years ago. But in reality I was tired, worn out and needed a holiday.
I'm not certain why I chose yoga because I hadn't done it in a few years but yoga always gave me that space I needed before, plus I think I just wanted a holiday by myself so off I went to Portuguese mountains to practice a week of yoga. Though I was bit apprehensive, that soon disappeared as soon as I met my fellow yoga women.
What a fab week it was! It didn't change my life forever (after all it was only a week!) but it definitely gave me the headspace to go back and deal with a difficult period at work.
Now that I have escaped from the corporate world, I am ready to carve a path that is more for me. In doing that, I thought why not provide the service I was so craving myself? So I organised my first retreat in the Peak District in July 2016 and hence, the idea of Alkimi & Aura was starting to develop.
I still have moments when I think I am superwomen and that I can tackle the seemingly impossible but most of the time I'm just normal and need a bit of down time, too. 😊❤️
Yum yum! Green goodness from @tallulahs_catering 💚 A taste of what could come at the retreat. There is something about a green soup that makes me feel warm and healthy! #greensoup#healthy#happy#tallulahscatering
