Girls just wanna have fun

Happy Sunday! It actually is such a happy Sunday in my world today. I’m full of banana and blueberry waffles, which were good for the body and soul when enjoyed with a coffee this morning. The sun is shining, but it’s nowhere near as hot and sticky in the flat as it has been the last few weeks. I’m just home from an absolutely wonderful … Continue reading Girls just wanna have fun

One scorcher of a day at a time

There’s absolutely no doubt it’s summer now: I’ve got an insect bite on my elbow which is so itchy I could scream, I have tan lines on my feet where my sandals should be and I’m running out of summery enough clothes to wear. As a winter girl, I’m trying to make the best of it. I am admittedly loving that our weekends are full … Continue reading One scorcher of a day at a time

Week One

I hoped I’d be writing this at 3 o clock in the afternoon, curled up with a cuppa and feeling triumphant. Instead, it’s quarter to eight, dinner is nearly ready (thank goodness) and I’m completely and utterly cream crackered. We left the flat at 8am yesterday morning, Ikea bound. We were there when it opened and we SMASHED our shop. We’ve then spent the weekend … Continue reading Week One

Bring on the cherry blossom

I’m a winter girl through and through, but my goodness am I ready for spring now. I’m so excited. No can do though apparently. Have you heard the ‘Beast from the East’ returns this weekend? Please no! The Beast from the East! The last time I wrote, it hadn’t even hit us just yet! I’ve always loved snow. I couldn’t have hated it more by … Continue reading Bring on the cherry blossom

No Place like Brighton

I spent last weekend in Brighton with four girl friends, celebrating my friend’s birthday and I fell in love. I arrived in Brighton tired, hungry, sweaty, clueless and with heavy bags in tow after a very long day at work. The lively atmosphere gave me an immediate boost. Between the squeals of girls on hen nights, the excitable chatter of everyone around, the yells from … Continue reading No Place like Brighton

Let go of the familiar and embrace the new

I was super happy and excited, but goodness I was nervous. A small part of me was just rationally worrying about the new job itself. Whether I’d be able to do it, whether the people would be as nice as I hoped, whether I’d impress like I wanted to. I was also having nightmares. Nightmares that varied from stressfully realistic to scarily weird. I had … Continue reading Let go of the familiar and embrace the new

Adventure of a Lifetime

Oh my goodness, where to start? I did go to Reading to celebrate being 22. I turned up and my wonderful friends were waiting with cards and presents which made me ridiculously happy. Our night out started with Prosecco and ended with MacDonald’s, need I say more? If you’ve never tried MacDonald’s cheesy bites, be sure to do so next time you go. They’re the … Continue reading Adventure of a Lifetime
