A Look Back At October

Wow! What an epic month of adventuring October turned out to be! It’s funny how I can go months without seeing people, and then out of nowhere, I have a crazy month of socialising and going places.   Being an introvert at heart, I find socialising tiring. So as much as it’s been fun, I’m ready…

A Look Back At August

I’m a bit later than usual with my ‘Look Back’ due to recent events, but I’m back with a round-up of August, which seems like a lifetime ago already! August was a bit of a strange one this year. We sadly lost one of my Aunties last month, which has left my family mourning the…

Thank You M’am For Everything

It wasn’t my plan to write about the death of Queen Elizabeth II today. But life rarely goes to plan, and it felt wrong to write about anything else. I want to start this post by addressing the fact that I know the Queen was not everyone’s cup of tea. Everyone is entitled to their…

A Look Back At March

March has been a complete whirlwind. I’m not sure where the time has gone. But yet, here we are in April.  Spring’s being its typically British self here in the UK with everyone out in shorts and t-shirts the week before last, and this week we’ve been back in coats and jumpers with a sprinkling…

Painshill Park

I’ve lost count over the number of times I’ve driven past the brown tourist signs for Painshill Park since I moved to London 6 years ago. I always felt intrigued by what it was, but it never seemed to be cross my mind when I was looking for something to do. That was until earlier…

A Visit To The Sculpture Park in Surrey

I’ve decided to try something new this year with my working week. I’m attempting a four-day working week instead of the ‘normal’ five day week. I have no idea how practical this will be, but one of the beauties of being a freelancer is having the flexibility to set my own hours. I’d say that…

Everything You Need To Know About Brean Down

There were two places I wanted to visit during our family trip to Somerset back in September – Cheddar Gorge (tick) and Brean Down. Whilst I ticked off Cheddar Gorge on my way to Somerset, Brean Down waited patiently until the last day of our trip. To give you a little bit of information about…

Burnham-On-Sea, Brean and Weston-super-Mare

In September, we went on a family holiday to the West Country and spent five days exploring Somerset.  On my journey there, I’d been lucky enough to stop off at the incredible Cheddar Gorge. From there, I headed to Brean, where I met up with the rest of my family outside the holiday park that…

Virginia Water Lake

What better way to start a week off work in August than a day out in the rain! Not one to be deterred by a spot of the wet stuff, yesterday, I loaded up my rucksack, cramming in my waterproof, and headed out in my trusty little fiesta, down the A3 towards Virginia Water. Virginia…
