I ventured into London’s West End yesterday for my first facial after 6 months

I ventured into London's West End yesterday for my first facial after 6 months. 
I had been recommended to try Dr Rasha's clinic in Mayfair.
.
I was temperature checked on arrival, the reception staff were behind screens and wearing masks, and masks were obligatory in the waiting areas and for therapists. 
.
The clinic was extremely professional, clean and somewhere any new anxious client would feel completely  confident and comfortable, in these post-lockdown Covid times,  to go to be treated. 
.
Here I am in pic 1, all masked up, with the lovely owner- Dr Rasha aesthetics physician and clinic director,  and in  pic 2 here I am after my facial with my 65-year old happy shiny face that loved the professional tlc and pampering it had just received. 
.
I will be revisiting again very soon. Thank you for my lovely afternoon. 
.
(Btw, this isnt an ad, I only write and post about places and products that I believe in and make a difference to my life and may inspire others).

Good morning Clean hair, no makeup, hair roots desperate for the hairdresser

Tight dress after so many compulsive and frequent fridge visits.

However I’m well now – healthy physically and mentally and with positive thoughts for today.
I can only manage to think about one day at a time at the moment – I used to think ahead and plan. Now each day evolves from the moment I wake up according to how I slept the night before. .

Been off social media for the last few weeks and still will be, until I finish the final edit of my first novel which I started last year

My current office is in the garden, wearing noise cancelling headphones (noisy neighbours, crying kids, and builders and building works everywhere).

Sunday’s daily walk – finally wearing jeans, not leggings – and with clean hair too

One day each week wearing normal clothes seems to help mental wellness and even brings a tiny bit of the old normal back again into your life – even briefly.

#tbt How strange it seems now that being in the middle of a crowd in a field at an IoW music festival was the normal

Our new normal changes daily.

We have to be positive and live in the moment – not looking further ahead than tomorrow, creating our new normal with at least one planned activity a day to look forward to – apart from your one daily walk/exercise outdoors.

You could make time to:
Phone or video chat to someone living on their own.
Make a cake – however bad.
Try an online fitness class.
Have a dance in the kitchen
Get dressed
or just do a meditation.
It gives a purpose and structure to the day.and helps your mental wellness.
Stay safe and well

Found my perfect spot at home to do more ‘live’ chats

Will do another chat , Q&A towards the end of the week with Nesse
@nesseinlondon (Fitness/nutrition/sarcasm)
in advance of our joint class on Monday. .
The class will be aimed at all ages young and old- she is young and I am old.
.
Whilst Nesse instructs and demos, I will be sharing the class with her onscreen as her pupil – adapting some of the exercises for those who are older or less fit. .
We will also be focussing on re-aligning our posture and spinal mobility from so many hours spent sitting in front of screens.
.
Nesse is a great instructor and irreverant and funny with her chat
Hope you can join us.
The next class is 10am Monday morning.
Please do let us know if there’s another time of the day you would prefer.
Maybe evening – 6pm – better for you? .
The website to book in for the next zoom class is at:

Quick and easy home-cooked French onion soup with sourdough croutons

2 brown onions
Olive oil
Teaspoon brown sugar
Couple of cloves
Couple cloves of garlic
Chicken stock (made from a previous roast chicken dinner and frozen in small bags ready for use) or a well-flavoured vegetable stock.
Slice/s of sourdough toasted.
Quantities make enough for 1 self-isolating hungry person or 2 less- hungry people according to the amount of chicken stock you use.
The cloves, sugar and caramelisation of the onions are what give the soup its zing!
