Visiting Budapest at Christmas Time

December 15, 2019

Christmas. The time of year that for many, is exactly what old Andy Williams sang to us for the first time in the 60’s. It’s the most wonderful time of the year. Everywhere looks prettier with its twinkling lights. People are nicer, more kind to each other. Families gather to eat together. New traditions are made, and old ones carried out. For so many people,…

Short Winter Break in The Balearics

December 5, 2019

Pulling back the curtains one morning last week, an involuntary shudder passed through me. Despite the warmth of the central heating, the sparkle of the frost settled over the garden made me shiver. The wintery scene looked beautiful, but the freezing temperature was not so much! Hugging my morning mug of tea, my mind began to dream of warmer climes. In my imagination, I was…

Meditation Retreat Day – In the Kent Countryside

December 2, 2019

If you have been with me a while in my little corner of the internet, you know my long term relationship with meditation. It is a fulfilling and rewarding relationship. I credit it for keeping me (almost) sane. It has certainly helped me work through some of the darkest times in my life. It is as much a part of my daily routine as brushing…

National Trust Kent – A Victorian Christmas

November 28, 2019

Christmas. The most special of times. Family traditions are upheld or made. Everywhere is touched with the warmth of twinkling fairy lights. The every day just feels more magical somehow.

Social Media Adverts – How People Really Feel

November 24, 2019

It’s time for a cuppa and a chat post, and I seem to have kicked the hornet’s nest over on Instagram this week! It was not intentional, but the strength of people’s opinions on it, were interesting and made me want to delve deeper! I am a curious person, I like to understand things, so I found it all very thought provoking. Grab your cuppa…

Dublin Breaks – A Perfect Weekender

November 15, 2019

Ohhhh Dublin. The City that has never disappointed me. The place that always shows me the best of times, and feels so familiar. Perhaps because of my Irish heritage? Or maybe as a result of the famous Irish charm and hospitality? It’s the City that always feels like its a huge place, but squished into a small village. It has something to offer for all.…

Searcys at The Gherkin – Drinks with a View

November 7, 2019

Nik and I have become people that no longer “wait for a special occasion”. If his cancer fight has taught us anything, it is to live for the day and just enjoy this beautiful life. Tomorrow is promised to none of us, so look around you and find joy in the every day. Wear your new coat to walk the dog in the woods. Light…

London Bridge Area Uncovered – In a Day

October 29, 2019

London Town. The first City to steal my heart. The City that has a skyline so familiar to me, it always feels like home. Nik and I love to hop on the train and take the 20 minute journey “into town” and explore. Lately, we have been picking an area of London to go into and uncover what it has to offer. Recently we did…
