Tonight I went along to my Pilates class feeling like death warmed up. I am on holiday next week and am rather busy making sure that all my work tasks are up to speed. Every night this week I have fallen into bed and snored through to 6 a.m. The dark nights are also having an impact, I can hardly move in the mornings. But an hour under the expert tutelage of Caroline – just an hour! – left me feeling like a new person, or maybe the same person in a newer body. My vertebrae are stacked. She rocks.
