christmas 2018

Well here we are again with Christmas nearly upon us. I literally do not know where this year has gone. I feel its time for some reflection and to take a look back over the year, whilst also preparing for the year ahead. Here’s a summary of B2B’s 2018.

A dear client passed away at the grand age of 91 years. I had been seeing Kit each month for 2 years, but so glad she went without suffering. I will never forget her.

With three large pamper parties to organise and deliver, February was quite a busy month. Also attending Wellbeing Day at the Hospice which is always so enjoyable.

Heavy snow on the 2nd meant Hartland Spa was closed so no work for me that day! Although lovely to look at, the impact on getting around is never good. So glad it doesn’t last…..

Really getting stuck into the 160 case studies I needed to complete for my Aromatherapy and Reflexology courses. aromatherapy-bottles-close-up-672051

Taking and passing my practical and written exams (x4) for my courses and so glad to pass all!

Writing up 160 case studies (it took me all month!) and finally finishing my courses. Being interviewed by The Guardian and having the article published (on line) on 6th June. You can read it here

Pamper party season so travelling out and about in the gorgeous Devon countryside in, what proved to be, the best Summer we’ve had in a long time.


After 2.5 years working at Hartland House Spa it closed its’ doors on 31st August due to retirement and its’ sale. I will always be grateful for the experience and knowledge gained there, as well as forming some lovely friendships.

Joining The Federation of Holistic Therapists (FHT), the leading professional association for therapists in the UK and Ireland for complementary, beauty and sports industries.

My busiest month of the year! Pamper parties, clients (in and out). A goodbye meal with the girls from Hartland Spa in Bude and Wellbeing Day at the Hospice. Also fitted in some back pain training with the FHT.

A belated honeymoon / much needed holiday in Kefalonia, Greece for two whole glorious weeks. Read 5 books, walked and swam a bit but not much else. Really felt I needed and thoroughly enjoyed. So good we’ve booked again for next year already!

Celebrating my birthday, 1st wedding anniversary and 3 years in business this month (soooo much food!)

A large pamper party at Webbery Barton Barn (visit the website here) at the end of the month was a lovely way to end another busy one.


A quieter month, but I don’t mind. It’s nice to have a bit of a rest after a very busy year.

Christmas again – where did the year go!

merry christmas 2018

Wishing everyone a very Happy Christmas and all good things in 2019.

Best wishes
