From the therapist: Ten minutes a day, to move the right way!

by Nikki Routledge

Sat, Mar 25, 2017

For a few years, the challenges I have set myself have been a little excessive, such as completing a marathon and attempting a 70.3 Ironman, so last year I resolved to just ‘smile and wave’ more and as a result I am a happy but slightly fatter version of me again. So my 2017 mission is to be more physically focused again, incorporating some charity fund raising to get me fitter as I ‘smile and wave’ each day.

Memories of Poland

Sun, Aug 14, 2016

Poland is a place like no other. The grounds of Janów Podlaski, Michalów and Białka are very special indeed. To be there, to drive through those iconic gates at Janów, is a moment guaranteed to induce goosebumps. ‘Special’ does not even begin to cover how amazing the State Studs are, and arriving at them is emotional every time.
