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 […]

Three Year Bloggiversary

If you told me three years ago that I’d be able to sit here and say “HEY YOU GUYS TODAY IS MY THREE YEAR BLOGGIVERSARY!” I’d tell you you were mad and then laugh you out of the room because everybody who knew me knows that my interests used to change quicker than the English weather. Yet […]

Ilios, Eindhoven

Choosing where to eat in a new city can be a difficult task. I don’t tend to use TripAdvisor, because as somebody who used to work in the food industry, I feel that so often it’s incredibly damaging to restaurants without due cause (such as when the customers are unbearable beyond belief yet somehow the restaurant gets […]
