As from today, Positive Parties are winding down for the summer holidays and there will be no Parties/Workshops delivered over the next four weeks. Some of the team will still be working but Founder Denise Devlin is off to Kilcar, Co. Doneagl, for a well earned break, to have ‘chill out’ time, rejuvenate and spend quality time with herself, family and friends.
As Denise says “I have to do practice what I preach! The whole ethos of Positive Parties is about KISS (keeping it so simple) and about work/life balance, so this ‘time out’ for a month gives me the chance to just do that. Where we stay is just magical, it is quite remote and the scenery is amazing. The family who house we rent & land we camp on have become close friends and this annual event has now become like a retreat. It certainly replenishes my mind, body and soul. Not only to I get to be totally free of the daily routines and stresses of life but I get to spend time out and about in nature. Walks on the beach at sun rise, swimming in the Atlantic, rock pool fishing with my children, long walks, cycle rides, a pint of Guinness in the local pub, barbeques (my husband catches the fish!) and sing songs around the camp fires some night! Sounds perfect doesn’t it!!
The other story…………..there are also days when its rains like there is no tomorrow, the kids are fighting, it’s cold and windy and one can’t see the beautiful scenery because of the mist!! Plus, people get grumpy etc etc!!
BUT sure that is life and we have to love and embrace all parts of it! Sure it’s the rainy days and grumpy times that make us appreciate the sunshine and harmony!”
We have been busy the first 2 weeks in July with Parties for Sure Start in Irvinestown and The ‘I’ Women Group, run by Ann Marie Houston from RNIB in Derry. Both Parties were fantastic and the feedback was super. Bookings are coming in fast for Sept onwards, so if you wish to book Positive Parties, do so as soon as possible to ensure you get the date you want.
If anyone needs to make a booking over the next 4 weeks call or text the Positive Parties mobile number which is 0044 7790793130.
Have a great summer everyone and do remember to ‘chill out’ at some stage over the next 2 months. It really does help in the long run when you replenish yourself you definitely do ‘Change Your Vibes.’
