The Retreat, Harrold
Tel 01234 721187
My favourite place for stress relief for several years now. All the therapists are expertly trained at all the treatments & The Retreat itself has a wonderfully calming feeling from the minute you walk in. For men & women, there are treatments for everyone - if you just want to relax or need something more invigorating - or just want a manicure.
Gorgeous Decleor products and always a great offer so you can treat yourself without too much guilt! I just wish there was a salon nearer me!
You'll enjoy every minute, I promise!
How to build the good habits that help create the time to do the things that make you happy, rather than being so busy & so stressed that you never have time for anything nice.
It sounds so simple that it couldn't possibly work - but it does! And even if you don't do it all (I don't!), I have learned that 'something is better than nothing' and that I can start anytime, I don't have to catch up first.
And shining your sink? I put it off for years, thinking, it looks ok, I don't need to do that. Then one day I did it - and it stayed clean ever since! Why? Because I like to see it that way. So, why not? No better reason.

Rosie Brice has been mad about animals since she was a little girl. Her parent's garden was a haven for dogs, cats, rabbits, chickens, maybe even a rooster at one point! I should know - I lived next door!
After studying Animal Care & Behaviour at Shuttleworth College, she worked as an Assessor in Animal Care at The College of Animal Welfare, then worked as a trainer & groomer and now runs her own business - mainly walking dogs but some training & general 'looking after'.
If you are out all day and need someone to pop in or take 'Rover' for a walk, regularly or occasionaly - call Rosie. Her van is fully kitted out for safe & comfortable transportation. She is fully insured and ALWAYS puts the animal first. Our dogs LOVE her - and yes, she IS barking mad!
