Delhi – Day 1

Arrival Day I arrived in Delhi on the morning of Christmas Eve after an 8.5 hour flight from London Heathrow with Virgin Atlantic. Whilst I had booked the trip through Intrepid Travel, flights were not included, so I took the opportunity to experience Virgin Atlantic for the first time, as my last little piece of…

Turning 35

This post was originally published on 3rd December 2018 and updated on 28th November 2019. This weekend, I turned 35. Birthday’s normally create moments of reflection for me. What have I accomplished in the last year, what do I hope to accomplish in the next? So far this year, I’ve been too lost in other…

Bucket List

This post was originally published on 23rd September 2018 and updated on 19th October 2019. A few months ago I had a complete panic over the things I had achieved since I moved to London. More to the point, what I hadn’t achieved since my London adventure began. I had packed a lot into my…

Old Fashioned Romance with a Modern Day Twist

I love being single, but that doesn’t stop me looking forward to being in love again. Although, I have to admit, and if you have read some of my earlier blog posts, you may have already worked out that I’m not actually too good at this love malarkey. Falling for the wrong men is becoming…

The Law of Attraction

Have you ever felt an overwhelming desire to go somewhere you have never been before? Not just because it looks nice, but because you feel something else is pulling you there? For several years, I have had this overwhelming feeling that I need to visit India. The feeling has been so strong lately, that I…

Dreams

I’d be lying if I said I was looking forward to going back to work tomorrow. I’m not. But, I’m not sitting around dreading it either. I’ve never had a dream job. Even as a kid, I had no idea what I wanted to do. Whilst I was at school, trying to decide whether to…

Albufeira

Yesterday was my first full day in Portugal. I am staying around 4km outside of old town Albufeira but I was keen to go and see what the town had to offer. Whilst there were the options of getting a bus from the hotel at 10am, or a local taxi, I decided to walk instead….

Readjusting

After a wobbly start to the year, a weekend readjusting was much needed. I took a brief trip to the lovely St. Albans on Saturday to meet up with my family. We’ve often suggested meeting half way between Northampton and London, but never actually done it. St. Albans is pretty much bang in the middle…

Signing out of 2018

Well here we are, New Years Eve 2018. The last year has once again been full of highs and lows. There have been losses, heartache, a lot of soul searching, and a lot of self discovery. I may not be where I thought I would be at the beginning of 2018, but I sure know…

New Year, New Goals

It’s that time of year again when we take time to look back at the last 12 months and to look forward to the next. I reflected on much of the last 12 months in a blog I wrote earlier this month called Turning 35, so now it’s time to focus on the next 12 months. I’m  not…

The Lebanese Bakery

Earlier this week, I paid The Lebanese Bakery a visit for some pre-theatre food. I love Lebanese food and had been keen to try out their menu for a while. With a date booked to see Kit Harrington’s new play ‘True West’ at The Vaudeville theatre, it was the perfect opportunity to pop along to…

Change (Part 2)

In Change (Part 1), I wrote about the importance of living life. How life was too precious and too short to plod along, and how sometimes it takes a life changing event to give us the wake up call we so badly need. In Change (Part 2), I want to share with you, my readers,…
