Surf’s Up, Baby!

I was so looking forward to my beach holiday…..this kind of COVID wave wasn’t exactly the waves I had in mind! And yet, this time it does feel a little more familiar, a little more manageable, a little less scary somehow.

We have more ways of dealing with this on the inside and out, so although our holiday plans are a little in the balance right now, I do have a feeling that either way there are ways to ensure that it’ll be a wonderful break.

And that – Thrive Tribe – is my wish for you. A gentle time spent with loved ones with everything of the best that life has to offer. Thank you for your ongoing support in yet another skills year. Stay safe, stay sane and cuddle the ones you love. A lot.

From our team to yours – everything of the best 🙂
