All About You – some time away

allaboutyou quote

A short and sweet post this week, and gratuitously reusing an old favourite quote – as I type I am looking out over the twinkling lights of a beautiful town in the Alps where we are staying for a week for some time away.  I’ve been coming here to Annecy since I was a child, and now staying in my grandparent’s old apartment on the top floor of a building overlooking the town and the lake with my family all feels quite surreal but lovely. The mountains are shrouded in clouds, the remains of the season’s snow just visible, and walks by the lake beckon or strolls through the cobbled streets of the old town.

As with all holidays, I can’t wait to settle down with a good book or three, knowing that household chores are safely back in London!   I recently read “Sadoko and The Thousand Paper Cranes”, a moving and beautiful re-telling of the true story of a little girl in post-nuclear Hiroshima; what are you reading right now? Do share in the comments below, I love a good book recommendation!

How was your week?  Come share All About You!

Welcome back to the All About You link party – the place for posts about YOU!   I hope that you can take a few moments to recharge your batteries, to find what nourishes you, what inspires you, what reconnects you to a sense of being YOU.  Sometimes we lose sight of how vital that is.

So, from your style, to your projects, passions, rants, plans, thoughts, anything YOU, come share and inspire!

tweet me your links via inlinkz or Twitter and I’ll happily retweet your posts.

Now come join in with your posts – or feel free add your links to a favourite instagram image from your IG account, it counts!!

  3. Hello gorgeous lady, hope you’re having a wonderful break. LOVE the quote, as always. I had a five minute window, so thought I’d link my post about a very life changing decision I made back in 2004 xx

  4. Book recommendation: I just finished “The Girl On The Train” and I loved it, it’s been a while since a book managed to keep me on my toes like this one.

    After I published my post today I was thinking where can I share it and I remembered this linky and it seemed the perfect place. An opinion from you would be greatly appreciated, as the post if yoga related :). I browsed the blog a bit and I couldn’t find info about where you teach. I would love a lesson with you if you do personal sessions.

  5. Sounds like your having a wonderful time!
