Day 274
Day 2 of my 200hr yoga teacher training course in Cirencester and a lunchtime walk took me past this beautiful hare.
Day 275
Back home and time to write up all my notes from the weekend - I now have Sun Salutations going through my head 24/7.
Day 276
A lovely 7 mile run with my buddy took us down to the cow field in a nearby village - had to stop and say hello like I always do.
Day 277
A nondescript day, apart from illness getting to me again for the second time in as many weeks, and a patio photo of my two year old September birthday plant - quite the record for me to see it still alive.
Day 278
Still feeling sorry for myself tonight so instead of running me and my girl took a walk around town - the local graffiti isn't quite up to Glastonbury standard.
Day 279
Feeling much better today - maybe it was that Friday feeling? The sunrise looked beautiful as I got into the car to drive to work.
Day 280
Another early start and back up to Cirencester for the second weekend of yoga training - the venue is beautiful.
Day 281
A beautiful Sunday morning back at the training venue and the moon was still awake.
Day 282
Back home and a package awaited me at the post office so after a morning of yoga teaching I popped into town to pick up - the walk took me through a lovely old part of town.
Day 283
Tuesday morning run with my buddy again. Another 7 miles - I wanted to throw in the towel at 6 miles but she kept pushing me on, not bad as I hadn't run all week.
Day 284
A big bowl of muesli to fuel my day and get me through late parent's evening at work tonight.
Day 285
A lovely day at work and home to a throw it together type of dinner - spaghetti, peas, Marmite, nutritional yeast and vegan cheese...yum!
Day 286
Friday the 13th! I don't believe in it and I had a lovely day at work again - back home and 6pm comes around and I'm wondering where my supermarket delivery is...I forgot to check out properly when I amended my order last night!
Day 287
A lush morning teaching yoga then this afternoon off to the supermarket and then I finally got around to sorting out our front window after 12 and a half years living here!

Day 268
A lovely start to the day with some yoga fun and games with my Home Ed families.
Day 269
I had to run solo today but pushed myself to a 10k for the first time in a while. It was looking very Autumnal in the villages.
Day 270
A busy day at work and some final revision in bed before I start my yoga teacher training on Saturday.
Day 271
An evening run tonight with a new running buddy - great timing as I don't like running in the dark alone.

Friday is naughty tea tonight and a chance to try the Aldi Chocolate Coconut Cream iced dessert - it did not disappoint!
Day 273
An early start to drive up to Cirencester to start my 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training course.

Project 365 2017 #38

Week 38 of Project 365 2017 and lots of resilience was shown to battle the back to work and school lurgy which has already struck!

Project 365 2017 day 260 - Raindrop diamonds // 76sunflowers
Project 365 2017 day 261 - Bath bomb // 76sunflowers
Project 365 2017 day 262 - Lacock 5 miles // 76sunflowers
Project 365 2017 day 263 - Yoga top // 76sunflowers
Project 365 2017 day 264 - Cheddar Valley strawberries // 76sunflowers
Project 365 2017 day 265 - Sunrise // 76sunflowers
Project 365 2017 day 266 - Yoga on the grass // 76sunflowers

Day 260
Another Sunday tackling the garden and it feels like I'm going round in circles with it. The recent rainfall had left behind a trail of raindrop diamonds.
Day 261
I felt a little bit under the weather tonight following a lovely day of yoga teaching. So much so I ran myself a bath and threw in a bath bomb that turned the water a little bit green.
Day 262
I wasn't really feeling it but I forced myself to meet my running buddy in Lacock. By this time I really wanted to back up to 8 miles but had to settle for 5.
Day 263
A tight chest has developed into a niggling cough so I avoided my usual Wednesday yoga class and hit the mat at home for some gentle home practice in my cosy yoga top.
Day 264
The husband brought home some Cheddar Valley strawberries which I can  assure are the best strawberries - I ate quite a few for a vitamin boost and had to cancel my planned evening run as today the illness went to the sneezing and dripping nose phase.
Day 265
Last night I had a super early night and woke up feeling much better. The weather took a change for the better too with a gorgeous sunrise on the way to work - I was at a red light!
Day 266
An unseasonably warm Saturday today with a lovely morning teaching yoga followed by some time in the garden tidying up another section before hitting the yoga mat on the grass - outdoor yoga is the best.

Day 253
A 5k in the rain to finish off the weekend.
Day 254
It's now the slippery slope downhill now I find myself on the wrong side of 40. Some birthday sunflowers from the husband is brightening up the room.
Day 255
Another run around Lacock with my running buddy and I managed to get a 10k out of my legs today.
Day 256
Working Wednesday and a relaxing yogi tea whilst doing the paperwork and prepping.
Day 257
An early finish at work due to an emergency trip to the dentist. Once fixed I did a sneaky 5k and tested the repaired tooth on a rather scrumptious vegan ice-cream.
Day 258
That Friday feeling is returning now that work and school is back in full swing. A dinner photo tonight with oodles of noodles and veg to fill up my hungry tum.
Day 259
Saturday morning and yoga teaching. The children always like the relaxation at the end!

Soul Circus Yoga Festival 2017 {Review}

Soul Circus - Yoga Festival {Review} // 76sunflowers
Nestled in the fields of Elmore, Gloucestershire, Soul Circus is a deliciously welcoming yoga festival that is guaranteed to leave you feeling completely chilled with a warm buzzing feeling inside. Having attended last year's inaugural event I was looking forward to see if 2017 could top it - it did not disappoint.

Camp Bestival 2017 ~ Review

The last of the mud has been washed away and I am now ready to look back on, and review, our Camp Bestival 2017. It was our eighth visit as Camp Bestival celebrated their tenth anniversary but somebody forgot to book the sunshine for the weekend. The rain, and mud, definitely impacted the festival but we were determined not to let it spoil our fun for Camp Bestival 2017.

Day 204
A lazy Sunday that included some yoga in the conservatory with the incense burning.
Day 205
A few jobs to do today including the dreaded holiday trip to the dentist, getting some new air beds, buying the girl's secondary school uniform - ouch! - and picking up my new yoga hoody from the local printer.
Day 206
A lovely sunny Tuesday and time to put the tent up for an airing before Camp Bestival!
Day 207
Some pre-festival rain arrived today, let's hope it all goes before the weekend.
Day 208
Safely in Lulworth, and with camp set up, we had an evening stroll around the festival site. We were really hoping the sunshine and blue skies would continue!
Day 209
Friday morning started with some vinyasa flow yoga under the yoga awning. It was all lovely until the heavens opened during savasana and I was wishing it was an actual enclosed tent!
Day 210
Saturday and the rain had continued for most of yesterday and into today but we didn't let it dampen our spirits too much. We explored the Kid's Field a bit today and the rain did stop at times!

Day 197
The girl had her friends over this afternoon for some birthday pampering and pizzas but before that I snuck out of the house for an amazing 8am yoga warrior workshop with the amazing Brendan Murphy from Shanti Warrior Yoga.
Day 198
It was my last day of yoga teaching at the Yoga Shed today but I have found a new venue for my Home Ed sessions in September. I will really miss this place though.
Day 199
Today saw my last day of walking my girl to and from primary school - she happily held my hand for some of the walk home.
Day 200
Last working day of this academic year for my job-share and she gave me a lovely bunch of alliums - she was a little worried they smelt a bit 'oniony' but no complaints at home!
Day 201
Not quite the last day for me at work but my lovely team gave me some super gifts - and all accidentally vegan too! This afternoon was also my girl's leavers assembly where a few tears were shed.
Day 202
Last day of the school year for me and the kiddos and last day of Primary school for the girl. There was also a first tonight for me; I went to a meditation and sound bath session and met some lovely new yoga people.
Day 203
Yesterday was Grandpa's birthday and this afternoon we headed over to the in-laws for a bit of a soggy BBQ. The view from their place is lovely and we're just hoping this isn't another last event.
