I hope we’re all doing well and living our best lives. Football did not come home this weekend but I have!
I’m back on my site after a three-month long hiatus and I’m here with exciting news! Since the last time I wrote on my blog, I have founded my own business, Paw Pal Yoga.
That’s right – I’ll be opening the doors to London’s most adorable yoga classes in a matter of weeks and well…you know what they say right readers?
(No we don’t Fahmida – we can’t read minds)…
…They say that ‘Every dog has it’s day’. And I’m here for it readers!
And I want for you to be too – to all the animal-lovers and yoga-lovers amongst my readers and followers, this is your chance to join one of my one-hour yoga classes at one of our secret Central-London locations.
Our sessions are led by fully qualified and experienced yoga instructors – my team are nothing short of brilliant, if I do say so myself (and I do: they’re BRILLIANT!).
And our Paw-Pals: puppies, kittens and bunnies, aged just 6 – 12 weeks…well, I’ll let them speak for themselves! (Okay, so they can’t quite talk – but they’ll be sure to give you face-licks, hearty meows and you might discover the bunnies have even left you a special present on your laps after they hop off to play with (and shit on) our other attendees 😂)!
For those of you who would like to join a class, you can find out more info on our classes and ethos at http://www.pawpalyoga.co.uk or alternatively, stay updated by following @pawpalyoga on Instagram and TikTok. (I’m currently still building the site and I’m trying to make it as user-friendly as possible, so if you feel that things are missing or you have feedback, leave a comment below because I am all ears).
Those of you who know me personally will already know just how much I adore animals. I’ve been at photoshoots this last month having to remind myself not to squeal with excitement. (It hasn’t been working…I see a floofyyy doggo and lose all sense of cool). But it’s nice because everyone I’ve worked with so far are just as excited, if not more excited than myself to see the pets!
Overall, the last few months have been both a busy and happy time in my life.
New business aside, I sat a Law exam (and passed with flying colours!), got back last week from doing some hiking in Scotland again (God, Edinburgh outside of lockdown is gorgeous) and have also been busy with wedding preparations for my brother’s wedding. And a few weeks ago, I watched my brother marry his partner and the C’s got to welcome a beautiful new addition to our family.
In general, I feel like at the moment, time is flying. We are seven months into 2021 and next week I’m about to complete another orbit around the Sun…which is waffle for: I’m growing.
I’ve chosen the word ‘growing’ as opposed to the words ‘getting older’ because I appreciate the growth that comes naturally with age and the fact that you do better as you grow.
In fact, I think personal growth has very much been the theme for 23. With that growth has come introspection, a clear shift in my priorities, an additional value that I place on my time, and learning.
I’ve learnt a lot it turns out – ’23 Lessons in 23 Years’ in fact – which I penned this time last year. I can’t remember why but I didn’t end up publishing that post. So whilst I take time to discover what 24 is all about, I’ll let you into ’23 Lessons (I Learnt) in 23 Years’.
That’s going to be the next blog. (It was written last year so it’ll be somewhere in the middle of my posts from 2020 but when I publish it, I’ll pin it to the top to save you all from scrolling. If it’s not at the top, it hasn’t yet been published).
First though, here’s a little photo-dump from the last few months:
And that last photo brings us to the end of this post and my mini-photo dump.
Update – 28/08/21: I don’t know when I’ll be back to discuss Paw Pal Yoga so I thought I’d come back and bless you all with a few photos of some gorgeous pups – you can thank me later!
