Cold Water Swimming Changed my Life

I’m standing at the water’s edge of the sea pool at Summerleaze Beach. And I can completely understand why I’m virtually alone. Most people don’t see the point of spending a baltic Christmas Day plonking themselves into 2 degree seawater. I mean lets be honest, stepping into the sea in December is pretty awful. EveryContinue reading “Cold Water Swimming Changed my Life”

Oh Mutha: Mother’s Day Gift Guide

A Good Clear Out: Donating Items in Lockdown

As spring time and FREEDOM quickly approach (thank you Boris!), if you haven’t had the urge to strip out your wardrobe or clear out your garage, you’re missing out. As mentioned in last week’s blog post, I love an excuse to get sort out and get rid of stuff, and can be surprisingly heartless whenContinue reading “A Good Clear Out: Donating Items in Lockdown”

Gifts for the Homebody

Zoom calls are dwindling, WhatsApp chats are no longer pinging all night long. We’re literally running out of things to say to one another. It’s not that I feel anti-social. I just want it (lockdown) to end. Which brings me to admit, I don’t really have anything to report this week. Its been a prettyContinue reading “Gifts for the Homebody”

Cocktails & Dreams: At Home Cocktail Edit

This week, I’ve reached my lockdown limit. So far, things have been fairly static. Get up, eat the same breakfast, the husband and I go to work (AKA sit at the desk procrastinating and argue over who’s turn it is to make lunch), make dinner, eat it ridiculously early, watch TV and go to bed.Continue reading “Cocktails & Dreams: At Home Cocktail Edit”

Leopard Print: Gift List

I can’t quite believe that it marks almost 1 year since Covid-19 came along & turned our world upside down. Literally.

The learning curve is pretty much vertical at the moment, I’m quickly becoming an expertContinue reading “Leopard Print: Gift List”

Cornwall: Travel Bucket List

This last week the husband and I have been spending all of our time in the same setting doing the same activities, as I’m sure everyone has.

I’m excited to say that as of late Thursday night we had ourContinue reading “Cornwall: Travel Bucket List”
