The Yeotown Detox (Or How I Was Duped Into a Five-Day Health Fest)

I was duped into going on the understanding I was tootling down to Devon for a spa break with a friend. I swear the first sentence of the email that came through from aforementioned friend, was along the lines of 'Conde Nast Traveller voted it best spa retreat in 2012'. There may have been other lines; I just didn't read them. So deposit paid, time booked off work, and then the kit-list arrived.

It's far warmer than usual, I'm told, but even at the height of summer there's the cooling presence of a sheer caressing breeze. The sun beams brilliantly in the pure blue sky, illuminating the rich and vibrant colours of my surroundings; the olive green palm trees, the emerald lawns, the citrus hued flora and the dusky coral casitas.

It's January and we all know what that means. It's time to get on the scales, cut out the excess consumption and work off the unwanted fat. But the detox I'm referring to is not about improving your body, it's about improving your business.

But before you stop any good work and reach for the biscuits I'm not advocating sitting about and eating badly!

Emotionally fraught after three days worth of calm self-reflection, women were not sleeping, having nightmares, leaving the room at 6am for calming swims, dozing off at 6pm, or haggling mindlessly over #firstworldproblems.

Dryathlon Diary Week 1 - Go Dry or Go Home?

I love alcohol. There, I said it. It makes everything more enjoyable. It's been a big factor in some of my closest, most meaningful relationships. In fact, it's the main reason some girls even find me attractive enough to enter a relationship in the first place... So when the people at Dryathlon enlisted me for a month of sobriety in the name of raising money for Cancer Research UK, I felt a tad concerned.
