Sorry for the radio silence last week, I've not been too well since getting back from my holiday. I will do a proper post about our trip to Sri Lanka, but I wanted to write about our girly day out for my birthday... we decided to go to Bentota and see the elephants at a … Continue reading A Grand Day Out
So... I turned 34 this week... that means I've got 6 years until I hit the big 4-0... that's a terrifying thought for me... not just because it's 40 and it's a fairly big milestone... but because my mum died when she was 40 (not that I think anything will happen to me) this isn't … Continue reading 40 Things Before 40

It’s been super stressful getting to the point of packing and actually going away. As my step-sister always says… “If … Continue reading Holiday Capsule Wardrobe
I used to be a dreamer as a child. I was at a conference earlier this year and we were challenged to write down 100 dreams that we had... people wrote down anything from going on holiday this year to launching a blue chip company. I struggled to write down 20 dreams I had (I've … Continue reading Hold on to Hope… Dare to Dream!
At the weekend, I had the joy of seeing friends get married. Lucia looked beautiful in her dress, Johnny donned a kilt for the occasion.
