Chichester Through The Eyes Of A Local

As we sat around the coffee table she exhaled into her hot chocolate and sighed “Jeeeeez this place is so boring!” It was the first time we had all gotten together in a while and as murmurs of mutual agreement crept around the table the words were out before I could stop them. “How can you say […]

The Burger Shop Co

Finding new places to eat is one of my favourite things to do,  so when I heard that The Burger Shop Co, the new burger shop in Arundel, had opened I knew it was time I stopped by for a visit. The Burger Shop Co’s mission is simple: To serve proper burgers, beers and cocktails. […]

My First Tattoo

Think before you ink.     It’s a mantra I have been repeating to myself for years. Not because I’m particularly afraid of committing to having something which will be on me for the rest of my life, but more because when you choose to get something which will be on you for the rest […]

Taco Bell Southampton

Do you ever go to a launch event and find a prop which perfectly describes you at every social event, ever? No. Me neither. *whistles* The thing is, food is great. I mean, I’m sure as grown up humans who survived the first stages of infancy and went on to feed yourselves, that you are well […]

Pickwell Farm Pumpkin Picking!

Autumn is a wonderful time. Darkness falls quickly, evenings feel cosier and you can grow out the leg fuzz because let’s face it, it’s freezing so aint nobody going to see beneath those million layers. But aside from being able to get into your pyjamas that much sooner in the evening, it also marks the arrival […]

Goodwood Revival

One of the best things about where I live is my proximity to Goodwood. It has the aerodrome, the motor track and every year it hosts an array of incredible events, including the infamous Goodwood Revival. Goodwood Revival is an event I have wanted to go to for years, but whenever that time of year […]

Surviving Long Haul Economy

Do you ever look back in your drafts and find random posts which you started and never went back to?  “Surviving Long Haul Economy” was one of those, dating all the way back to 2014. Its contents? “Make more money and fly business class instead.” Good job Amy. Solid advice. One can only assume that I wrote […]

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, […]

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 […]

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 […]

Day Trip To Bath

Do you ever wake up in the morning and think “I want to go somewhere different today?” Because that’s exactly what happened on the weekend when we took a day trip to Bath. Well… Kinda. I woke on Saturday morning to a gentle elbow nudge from S. “Amy, it’s 10am, wake up!” I stirred and […]

21 Things I’ve Learnt About Long Term Relationships

  I was sitting on bathroom floor the other day having a quick scroll through Facebook, (because I had just got out of the shower and didn’t want to leave the blissful hot steamy bathroom because yano, it’s winter and stuffs) when a picture popped up on Time Hop. It was a picture of me […]

Nicolino’s

If you’re looking for a place to eat with character and charm, then boy have I found the place for you. You see on a typically rainy English day S and I found ourselves sat in the car with hangrrr looming but no idea where to head for lunch. You see our lunch-list repertoire has […]

Selsey Fireworks

Becoming an auntie was the weirdest thing. It was like one minute there was this cute little baby bump attached to my sister who couldn’t stop moaning about how much she missed pink steak and dippy eggs and soldiers, and the next minute there we were, stood watching Selsey Fireworks with this gorgeous little one-year old […]

Racton Ruins

Racton Ruins was a place S and I stumbled upon by accident. You see way back when temperatures in England were double digits and the sun graced us with its pleasant appearance, S and I were planning to take a stroll through some nearby lavender fields. But after winding through abandoned country roads and ending […]

Skydiving Neverathon APA

Have you ever wanted to do something for ages but for some reason you keep putting it off? Well that was me when it came to skydiving. Like so many others, skydiving had been on my Bucket List for a while. It had stayed on the list for a while because, yano fear of death and […]

St Michael’s Mount.

I have a confession to make. I watch way to much Walking Dead (if such a limit exists). So much so that when S and I recently went to St Michael’s Mount I couldn’t help but think how perfect it would be as a place to escape to should the zombie apocalypse happen. For those of […]

Mên-An-Tol

  I never thought I’d find myself writing about a bunch of rocks. Much less going to see a bunch of rocks on purpose. But Mên-An-Tol proved that I can still surprise myself.   After we had finished exploring The Minack Theatre S took us for a drive on a quest to find food and sate the […]

The Minack Theatre

  Looking at these photos I can hear your mind questioning away. Where is this? Is this Greece? And I’d forgive you for questioning it.     But believe it or not this beautiful place is actually in England. Cornwall to be precise! I know I know, those blue skies were incredibly deceiving!     We […]
