Happy New Year From Delphinium

7th January 2023

Your First Top Picks Of The Year



I hope you had a fantastic break and managed to take some time just for yourself.The start of my break was rather hectic, with getting ready to have the family over for Christmas. Then, it was a busy new year. So, I took myself off for a little spa break in between for some much-needed R&R, to The Parsonage Hotel & Spa. It was bliss, and I can highly recommend the hotel!Just don’t go when someone accidentally presses the wrong switch as they leave for the evening and accidentally empties the pool. I would hate to see their water bill, never mind the electricity/gas it’ll take to heat the water!It’s back to work for me today, and I’ve been busy working through the mountain of emails and messages – the downside of having a proper break!Later this week, I’ll finalise my 2023 plans to start this year with a bang while Amy is off on her skiing holiday. I’m not jealous at all (yeah, right!)But she will be back next week to crack on with our marketing for 2023 and some exciting news on our range of mini digital masterclasses.Until then, here are my Tuesday Top Picks.
