Keeping it simple

Once again, there has been a huge gap since my last entry. Life has been so full that I rarely have any 'me' time these days and I if I get a moment on my computer, it's usually time spent catching up on admin.

I have been indulging in lots of festival events - most of them kiddie centred. I have also been teaching lunch - time Festival classes at the Yoga Room which has been an absolute joy.... The Edinburgh festival is an awesome event and I love the quirky and interesting people that it brings to the city.

It has been fantastic returning to this wonderful city and living directly opposite the Yoga Room has been great for my business. I often pop in to sweep the floor or do a practice ( when Molly allows this!) and I love the fact that I don't have to spend half the day travelling to get there.

Keeping it simple has been a valuable lesson for the Morris family and one that we are going to take forward... we now plan to move to the Edinburgh area, so that we can keep things easy. I didn't realise how much of a juggle it would be to run the business and be a mum and I am excited that we are going to take the step of having a permanent residence in this wonderful and diverse city. We just have to sell our house in Dunblane- easier said than done in the current market. Watch this space.

This summer has been a busy one for the YR and i am enjoying every second of teaching; it grounds me and and, gives me a bit of 'me' time. It is amazing how much of yourself can be lost when you become a mum. I embrace every joyful second on my mat now and appreciate the quiet space all the more since having Molly.
