Five days including New Years in the Swiss ski resort with a reputation for family fun and classiness. Sounds right up our street…

Montenegro & Serbia

Ten days of bumbling around the coast of Monetenegro and then popping in land for a mini-break finisher to Serbia. It was a quiet, easy, sometimes sunny, sometimes stunning, always charming coupla weeks.

Ireland

Four days that felt like four weeks. If you know me at all, see if you can work out why… there was good bike riding, nice coffee shop action, free wifi, plentiful wine, lots of giggles, time to read, write & hang. Triple double boom.

Lyon

Coupla days in mid France to see where Lise used to live.
Or, using that as an excuse for another mini break with sun, fun & vino. Sun, fun & vino, I reckon they’re good children’s names, first dibs thanks.

SOSA (151.5/200): exploring

I’ve said before that the SOSA team have this whole thing mapped out really well, and that becomes more & more evident with each day, and now week, that passes. It’s as if they’ve got, somewhere in their office, the most reliable mood and energy predictor ever made. We’ve started to work with all the different teachers now, this week we had more sessions with Uma, Cat and Tina, but we also had our last posture clinics, so, you see, they’ve started to ween us off the pattern too, clever eh.
The atmosphere in the group continues to be really good. There are some really clear mini-groups (emphatically not cliques) which is great because it’s another level of support that we need at this stage – being able to confide, troubleshoot, encourage.
This week I felt that I started to use some of what we’ve learned to make my own shape and feel my own way a bit more, just a little bit.

SOSA (102/200): deepening

This second week has been a totally different experience. Some of the other girls have mentioned it, and the teachers have referenced it too. For me, I’ve just felt so much more at ease, less pressured. Week one I really kept my head down, stayed focus, and I think that made a good foundation to relax more into this week, and I’m grateful for that.

Michelle just got back from 12 days touring beautiful New Zealand with her Mum and the blog, “travelswiththemothership” is a brilliant diary of their time together. Brought back a lot of memories of roadtripping with my own Mum last year.
travelswiththemothership has some mouth-watering food refs, highly amusing anecdotes (nice one on the hire car..) and some beautiful photos. Have a read
