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 […]

A New Year

  As the car door slammed and the stones grinded beneath my feet as I made my way out of the carpark I took a deep breath. For today was the day I would finally make it to the top of Kingley Vale.   I probably should have picked a better day for it to […]

Focus

As I sit here writing this I’m laying on my bed cocooned in a duvet burrito and a feeling of utter bliss. There will be no pictures of that because with the exception of all the fucking swearing I do, this is a (relatively) family friendly blog, but the reason for those happy feelings of contentedness is not because […]

Perception

Perception is a funny thing. If you’re new here you may have missed this post which I wrote back when it wasn’t minus ridiculous degrees. If you don’t have time to read it, it was a personal post I wrote about being vulnerable, growing up and the emotions which accompany both and I honestly didn’t expect […]

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 […]

Roasted Pumpkin Soup

Pumpkins. A fruit (yes for realz) which has grown increasingly popular with every spiced latte, pie and cake that each season brings. But no matter what you do with them whether you carve, roast or puree – one thing’s for certain; soup is a timeless dish, and now that the sun sets around 4pm (gulp) and […]

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 […]
