I had been working far too hard running my gardening business, my online shop, being a Mum of 2 and a perfect wife – the list goes on – so one Friday night I collapsed on my kitchen floor and smashed my head badly and ended up in A&E.
Cut a long story short – I ended up with a pacemaker. I had time to reflect on my life and business and immediately closed my gardening business and started a new journey promoting wellbeing in our gardens. The need for us all to slow down, take time out for ourselves and enjoy our gardens. Through my own experience I can share the importance of self-care – and lockdown has been a perfect example of what we can achieve when we simply just slow down.
