Three Different Hotels, Three Different Adventures

I wanted to go over the trip we recently had where we experienced three different hotel stays, both in the UK and in the sunny glorious South of France. (This was a while ago now, but I've been busy as we well know.) I really ought to turn this into a travel blog, the amount … Continue reading Three Different Hotels, Three Different Adventures

Badger Moming

This time last year I must've been submitting my last piece of professional writing I’ve done – a short story of the name SHE, STARK – to the editors of the University College London Publisher’s Prize. With such prestige, I hardly expected to get in, but my piece made it through to the longlist of … Continue reading Badger Moming

Merry Christmas

Another year, another Christmas message. Well, I hope you all have had a good day this Christmas 2018 and that have a good New Year. Let's see what the following year has in store - I hope it's something good for you. As per my last post - no resolutions apart from the usual ones … Continue reading Merry Christmas

Where Has The Year Gone?

Wow, where have the days good? In true blink-and-miss-it style the year has passed and we sit at the last week of December already. I know I've been super absent from the blog, and actually without good reason except that working is my focus and I've not had much to offer advice or chat about. … Continue reading Where Has The Year Gone?

Guestposting Away

My friend Craig Hallam invited me to guestpost on his blog in, oh, July it must have been, and with everything that went on for me in the months of July and August - my anniversary and graduation, The Lincoln Asylum and Reading Swing Exchange - then working a bunch of overtime towards the end … Continue reading Guestposting Away

Remembering the Lost

Today is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Day and I want to respect that here, knowing so many people who've suffered the hardship and pain and indescribable nature of losing a child, however far into gestation, not least my precious Godson's siblings. From my Instagram: I don't pretend to have any knowledge beyond the facts … Continue reading Remembering the Lost

Escaping Titanic

It's unassuming from the outside, but so are most escape room locations. Shrouded in mystery in the middle of Southampton - even more so with a growing rain pelting The Husband and I - Houdini's Escape Rooms are anything but unassuming. After stopping off at my mother's, we manoeuvre the trains to get to Southampton … Continue reading Escaping Titanic

What’s Up Wednesday? Sept 12

It’s been a long time since I’ve done one of these (ha – sensing a trend), but I’ve been inspired by the revival of my friend Jae’s blog, and where better to start with a classic list? I forget how many points we’re supposed to muse over, but five is a lovely handful for now … Continue reading What’s Up Wednesday? Sept 12

New House, New Place

There's something to be said about keeping to a blogging schedule. I deeply admire people who are able to do it. As for me...once again, I seem to be falling behind any schedule I endeavoured to create. Never fear, though, since it doesn't mean I'm not writing! I have lots of things going through my … Continue reading New House, New Place
