Last week I went up to Newcastle for the weekend to attend the wedding of my lovely baby brother Paul and his gorgeous lady Amy. More
I have a confession to make. I LOVE winter. As everyone else starts lamenting over the dark evenings and chilly temperatures, I secretly love snuggling up under a duvet on the sofa, digging out my thick tights and woolly hats and seeing my breath in the air. This may have something to do with having spent much of my childhood growing up in the Mediterranean where we had little in the way of seasons- it’s slightly colder in the winter but I definitely remember spending a number of Christmas days in jeans and a t-shirt.

This month I went to a brilliant event down at Farm Club, a local project where I spend a lot of time with the Mini Divas, family and friends. We grow our own veg and have animals on the farm that we all help to look after, and take a share in the meat and produce.

Life is busy, and we all have other things to fit in in limited time, so how can exercise be easily accommodated into our routine to make it a habit? More
