Another day in the home office and I started work just after 6am as Sophiecat had woken me up and won’t leave me be until I got up and fed her.

Wanted to crack on with some work anyway as today I had a physio and facial appointment booked. So knew 3 hours out of my day would be taken up with these appointments.

For years I’ve never really invested in physio when I’ve had injury or niggles as there simply wasn’t the budget to allow for this or possibly there was budget but I never felt that I deserved being invested in!! I still struggle with this which is why I also booked myself a facial as feel that I need to start putting some time and money into me.

This is a little challenging for me as my mum doesn’t see the value in beauty treatments and holds the belief that it’s wasting money, extravagant and unnecessary. This belief has been quite vocal in my life and I really want to crack it as I do get where she is coming from but I also believe that sometimes it’s good to have treatments that rejuvenate and boost you.

The facial I had today was gorgeous and so relaxing, relaxing to the point where I was nearly asleep at one point. Moving into 2022 I think I’m going to put some dates in my diary where I spend time looking after myself, self-care/pamper days whatever you want to call it but simply stopping and taking some time out. Probably just one Saturday a month where I might pay for a treatment or simple do my own home spa, have a long bath, moisturise my body, and do my nails all things I think about doing but never do.

I'm 40 something gal living in the beautiful county of Lincolnshire, England. I run my own business which is a rollercoaster of good times and bad times but it is what makes life interesting. I'm a self-confessed foodie, which some people might think is bordering an obsession, but a good obsession I would say. I am a fully qualified food technologist, nutritionist and personal trainer and use my skills and knowledge to keep striving to better myself in all areas of my life. Despite being dyslexic I love reading both fiction and non-fiction books and usually have four or five on the go at any one time. I enjoy keeping myself fit and healthy by regular visits to the gym as well as enjoying open water swimming and sometimes I'm brave enough to swim without a wetsuit. This blog is all about my life and adventures.
