Where have the last two weeks gone? I have been quite busy at work recently and a little pause on the home front was very much welcome, so Rob and I made a dash for Paris for a long weekend. My sister and her boyfriend welcomed us with a great healthcare weight loss program of […]

Making the most of a small living space is never easy!   As Londoners these last five years, Rob and I have hopped on from houseshare to flatshare, and finally, a lovely rented one-bedroom flat two years ago. I’ve said it before but despite the lack of space, I am grateful that our ...

This week I’m sharing the second photo-diary of our summer holidays in Sicily this late June and early July. If you missed the first part about Palermo, catch up now by reading the previous post. Cefalù is a little seaside town about forty miles away along the coast from the capital, and ...

Happy Friday! I hope that you’ve had a good week? On my side, there’s been a lot of rushing around London to meet with people for work and for the blog too. I can’t believe how much I’ve fitted in these last two weeks of freelancing. I’m feeling much better about ...

After last week’s slight case of cabin fever, I’ve slowly adapted to the pace of freelance life by spending more time out of the house. This weekend Rob and I wanted to pop down to Hastings to spend some time by the sea but it was really hard to find last minute accomodation so we ...

Well I would never have thought I would say this but: I am finding it strange to have so much time these days. It’s only been a week since I’ve left my role of three years and with two short freelance projects under my belt already, having a lot more free time than I used […]
