Tangmere Aviation Museum

Tangmere Aviation Museum was a place I had driven past many a times but never stopped into. I had always made the assumption that it would be boring, that it probably resemble a village hall with not much stuff in it because Chichester doesn’t tend to have the most expansive of collections (you usually have […]

Lordington Lavender

Lordington Lavender is a place that I’ve been wanting to go for a whole year and a half. Now, I know what you’re thinking: “What type of person waits that long to go and play in some lavender fields” And the answer is me. I’m that person. Lordington Lavender is a farm based in Funtington which, […]

Pina Coladapops

Pina Coladapops were the magical equation of a hot day and long forgotten cupboard ingredients. If you’ve been on the internet over the past few days I’m pretty sure you would have seen *somebody* mentioning how great the weather is, and whilst that may not seem newsworthy to most of the world, genuine perfect days […]

When Are You Having Kids?

If I had a pound for every time somebody asked me when I was going to have children, I’d have enough money to settle the lawsuits which came from stitching their mouths shut. It’s a funny old question isn’t it? One that seems harmless enough yet is such a personal pry into somebody’s life. I […]

Arundel Castle

Arundel Castle is a building whose presence demands attention.     Roger de Montgomery established Arundel Castle way back in 1067 on Christmas day. But the thing is dear Roger, is that a castle is for life and not just for Christmas! So S and I set off to explore and whilst I don’t mean to […]

Boxgrove Church

  You may remember that last week I showed you round Boxgrove Ruins (if you missed it you can check it out here) but today I want to show you around Boxgrove Church.     Boxgrove Church is literally right next-door to Boxgrove Ruins and its history is just as long. The only difference is […]

Growing Up

Growing up is difficult, because it’s so easy to let other people dictate who you are.     Growing up I was always told that I was “too” much. I was “too loud”, “too muscly”, “too opinionated”, ‘too confident”. Basically I was “too” anything if I had a characteristic that another person didn’t like, and for an […]

Boxgrove Ruins

Boxgrove Ruins is a place that has graced the backdrop of many a photoshoot. But before Boxgrove Ruins became the it place to have your engagement photos taken, it was a place steeped in history earning it its Grade 1 listing. England has been gloriously warm lately, so S and I decided that we’d get out […]

Why, Toothbrush Travels?

If you’re reading this and you write a blog then you already know that naming a blog is bladdy difficult… But if you’re reading this as somebody who doesn’t blog, then I’m going to tell you this: Naming a blog is harder than naming a baby. I know, I know, bold claim. The thing is, when […]

Bluebells in Chichester

Spring has sprung and the Bluebells in Chichester are out in full force. I’m quite lucky because I live in an incredibly charming city. Chichester has it’s pros and cons, like anywhere else in the world, but it’s old roman history combined with its small town city (we have a cathedral don’t you know) and countryside […]
