If ever you wanted a totally relaxing weekend with like minded spiritual souls then this retreat is FOR YOU. If I am truthful, my interest with spirituality is all down to Belles. She has this absolutely incredible nature and is attuned to calm, relaxation and angels. Her questions about these kind of things don't frighten me because she speaks like a child who has been a wise woman on this earth before. And its not only me that feels this - a number of my friends have picked up on it too. In fact, I took her for a Reiki session a few weeks back and the Reiki master asked her what colours she could see and feel and for every area the master hovered over, Ellie knew the right colour (and believe me, Ellie knows nothing, yet, about chakras and aurora's). I would imagine a lot of you might think this is mumbo-jumbo but I for one, do not. So much so that I have booked myself to do Reiki 1 and 2 this year with a view to taking the masters at the end of the year. Just so that I can provide this kind of treatment for Ellie and my friends as a gift.
So you can imagine my utter delight when Suzanne, of Spirit-Mind-Body asked me to teach at her event in November. AS IF I WOULD SAY NO. You simply have to check out this link here to see what she has on offer. A totally chilled out experience where you decide what you want to do within a fairly relaxed setting. I can't believe that Charlotte Poole is teaching there - she creates the most delightful scrapbook pages and then there is Jenn - an absolute treasure who I have known through crafting for a number of years. Her wise life coaching skills will be utilised by me at the event, let me tell you that for nothing!
So yesterday? Well, whilst my folks were spending the weekend with us, we thought it might be nice to take them over to Crosby (we went there a few weeks back). Belles hasn't been either plus it was a lovely afternoon to walk the pooch. The boys did a bit of geocaching whilst us girls ambled along the beach trying not to be freaked out by Antony Gormleys Iron men's thingies (you know, the rudey bits on resplendent display). Ellie thought it was gross!
She battled against the wind on the beach and took great delight (like me) crushing razor fish shells. I can't describe how lovely that crunch and crack sounds when you do.
She gave one of the iron men a cuddle whilst sharing her glasses with him whilst wearing my over sized sunnies and wrapping a scarf around his iron neck
Dad caught us up after a while and decided to join in the photography fun.
Mum chose not to join in, instead retreating for a cigarette against that amazing wooden sea wall. Culture of this proportion isn't my mums thing, we reckon.
But that sea wall? Isn't it magnificent? All woody and rusty and old
The last picture of the day was Belles taking a rest on the benches on the promenade. I am not kidding you, 5 seconds later the heavens opened with a tremendous downpour. It came down so hard, it actually hurt Ellie. We ran like the clappers back to the car whilst I shoved £3,500 worth of camera equipment up my top to stop it being ruined (it wasn't a graceful look)Poor Belles can't run to save her life and got a thorough soaking. And the kids on the beach all screamed, running to their momma's with buckets and spades being abandoned as the dove for cover. I have never, ever seen rain like it in all my life - magic! It didn't stop us having an ice cream as we sat out the storm either!
I also finished this too. Remember a few weeks back I showed you it but it wasn't decorated? I was waiting for the right quote to go on there and after a few weeks of hunting, I decorated the canvas with it on full display.
