I have been Away!




I went to The Buddhist Retreat, Called Rivendell, Near Uckfield in Sussex. It was organised by The Carers Centre and Brighton and Hove Council, who paid for it, for carers to learn how to de-stress with meditation. 14 of us arrived there Monday teatime. We were not allowed to do anything. If we wanted a drink it was bought to us. No dishes to wash or beds to make. It was like being in Heaven. We had massage or reflexology. We also learnt a couple of dances! That was great fun, doing Russian and Greek dancing.

Wow! That looks & sounds amazing Linda. How wonderful that you had an opportunity to get away from all your day to day responsibilities and unwind for a while. The dancing sounds like a bit of a laugh too. Was it all people from the local area? It must have been nice to talk things over with people who understand exactly the trials and tribulations involved in caring. Glad you're back though ;) love xxx

Goodness, what a beautiful place. How wonderful for you to be able to relax and be put first. I agree with Jackie, good to let your hair down and have a bit of a dance. Hope your batteries managed to recharge a bit. Take care.
