We hired bikes for a few days which enabled us to a) burn beer & baklava calories b) see this beautiful island from a different perspective c) kill our legs, especially his, mine are spin-fit 😉 and d) just take it easy and soak up the warm October sunshine without dehydrating or burning. That said, … [Read more…]
I spent a near perfect weekend with one of my bestest friends in the whole world. I say near perfect as we had a run-in with an electric car. Never ever buy, hire, accept a lift from an electric car. I shall say no more. We drove down to the Seven Sisters Country Park and … [Read more…]
For her tenth birthday – yes 10 – we decided to keep is small and intimate and treat ourselves to a decadent afternoon tea on board a lovely London bus. The BB Bakery bus tour was a fun & sugary way to celebrate our little girl’s double figures. But blimey there was a lot of … [Read more…]
Well, we went and already it feels like many many moons ago. I’ve been to Zante quite a few times now and this time was by far the best – with my babies, swimming until 8pm every day, tzatziki with every meal. Bliss.

Having just posted images from Dreamland‘s opening weekend I thought I’d dig through the archives and see what I have from before renovation and before the fire which damaged the Grade II listed scenic railway.
I am an “Essex girl”. It’s not something that bothers me anymore but when I was at university it was a right royal pain in the arse. I think we’re over the jokes now? Not that the County is helping itself with certain documentary tv programmes. Anyway, I was visiting the parents recently and took … [Read more…]
Last Sunday whilst the girlchild went to her monthly Red Fox Sewing Club at Pat-a-Cakes in Brockley, me and him went on a date. It was going to be filled with giggles and coffee (me, he had fresh OJ) and cake and maybe we’d tell each other some jokes and plan a summer holiday or … [Read more…]
This year Spring has felt so long, cool and windy. I’m not complaining, although being British it’s hard not to, but getting the musette out in ‘summer’ clothes has been tricky, the few warm days we’ve had have been a) school days and b) really breezy. So this week whilst the bluebells were still standing … [Read more…]
