The Wellness industry is a tricky one; while promoting taking care of ourselves, it can be incredibly difficult to do so when trying to run a business that aims to look after others.
P&P has been one of my biggest joys in the past year, and there is not a thing I would change about what has been. However, after lots of soul searching, I've come to realise that while trying to be everything to everyone, I've not taken care of myself.
Success, we are told too often, is putting in every single hour and ounce into our work. And when you love what you do, you happily will do that. However, at some point, continuing like that has taken its toll on me, my relationships, friendships and overall wellbeing.
For that reason, I've decided to run P&P as a "Weekend Spot"; from Friday through to Sunday, all of your favourite vegan delights, smoothies, teas, coffees, and sweet desserts will be served from our now bigger space in the courtyard of Garrett House.
With these condensed hours, we hope to be able to serve more love with each thing that we serve out to you. Breakfast, brunch, lunch, and coffee catchups, post yoga, pre-yoga, or just in your active wear between popping to the shops.
Wellness is about finding the balance in life; something that we are all striving for. Because life doesn't fit neatly into packets of "work", "relationships", "friendships" and "health". It all comes intertwined, messy, and we have to find our own way of enjoying and growing with the journey.
If there is anything that you would like to see from our proudly vegan eatery, please don't hesitate to drop us a line.
