Wedding Bells are Ringing

Don’t you just love a good Wedding, if it will ever stop raining long enough for the photos!  Sometimes I think maybe an out of season Wedding is the better option, no expectations for beautiful weather equals no disappointment.   I’ve been down the aisle twice (well only technically the first time, second was in a Registry Office), one was a Summer Wedding and the other in Winter.   Continue reading →

Festival Fever

Have you been to your first festival of the year yet?  Or have you got one of the most coveted tickets of 2016 for Glastonbury? The big one opens it’s gates tomorrow!  Which is your favourite Festival – quirky & laid back Latitude, seriously hip Lovebox or down & thumping Reading?  Whatever your taste in music we have definitely got it covered in the UK and I think we’ve got the event set-up nailed.  I’ve never been to a Festival anywhere else in the World but I do think the UK event organisors have definitely learnt and improved immensely over the years.  So what do you wear?

Maybe it’s a bit dull in your neck of the woods today but I can cheer you up with thoughts of shimmering sandy beaches, cool white surf, cloudless azure blue skies, exotic cocktails and all kinds of fun in the sun!  I have to say one of my greatest Summer pleasures is going barefoot – no more socks or tights just slip into flip flops for perfectly relaxed feet.

Blogging or Jogging?

So that is the question, are you a blogger or a jogger?

What do you do with your spare hours? Admittedly if, like me, you work full-time those spare hours here and there during your working week are very precious. A good few are taken at rest, sleeping that is, we all need to recharge our batteries with enough shut-eye, but what do we do to fill the rest of the gaps in 24/7?
