10 reasons to visit Guernsey

At the beginning of August I made my second trip to Guernsey and fell in love with the island just that little bit more. As the home country of my boyfriend James our trips have always been a balance of seeing family and friends, and James showing me as many beautiful corners that we have time to discover. As it’s a trip that involves a short flight from Gatwick, and (so far) sun, sand, sea and loveliness,… View Post

Back to school nostalgia

Is it bad that towards the end of July I scroll through Facebook green-eyed with envy as my teacher friends head off into a 6 week holiday and then feel a little bit of glee when back to school approaches? With my sister as a teacher and many good friends in the profession I know it’s a well deserved break and they cram in the hours during term time, but I can’t seem to help it.… View Post

Thoughts about turning 30

The weekend edit #15

The last two weeks have been full of good intentions, writing up all the posts I had planned and getting myself organised for my birthday. But somewhere along the way I got some unexpected work, got carried away over-thinking my celebration plans and in those tired moments got dragged into the black hole of faffing, losing far too much time to be able to get everything done that I wanted to.

Visiting the 2015 Serpentine Pavilion by selgascano

There are times when I’d love to go back to being a child again and experience the London that’s made for the young. The bright lights of a big city, enormous and exciting museums, and parks packed with endless opportunities for play. Luckily, the capital has a great way of creating things that are child and adult friendly, meaning that you can either see the adult side or embrace your inner child.
