Everyone knows I have workaholic tendencies. Everyone knows I am not the best at taking holidays, and rarely achieve my nine free Sundays (I think I got to eight last year!). So, at the end of last year, I decided to take myself in hand, and be much more intentional about looking after myself.
With that in mind, I have just booked my first three 'free' Sundays for this year, and a short break to Rome to coincide with one of them. I've never been to Italy, and everyone seems to love Rome...
I am also in conversations with the various friends I go away with to fix dates for our jaunts, and am planning to have another retreat in Wales this autumn.
Sometimes I learn very slowly... but at least I am making progress in looking after myself, and that has to be a 'good thing'.
