Sunday Catch Up #10

Brr, where's the sun gone, eh!? It's absolutely freezing here today. I'm psyching myself up to go for a run, but I know how chilly and windy it is - I just got back from Wilko - and I'm struggling to find the motivation. I'll go, because I know I have to, but I know… Continue reading Sunday Catch Up #10

Planning a Wedding in Under a Year

I'm writing this on the anniversary of our engagement. Yep, Pete proposed in the middle of Central Park this day last year, under a beautiful cherry blossom tree, next to one of those old-style street lamps. I cried, he almost cried, and then we went to the zoo. It was truly magical. Now, we're married!… Continue reading Planning a Wedding in Under a Year

Afternoon! We've just got back from a 14km walk... My little legs are so sore! But it was a really lovely walk and we had so much fun. Now, I'm going to cook a cracking roast and devour that, whilst we watch Captain America: Civil War, in preparation for the new Avengers film. Eeeek! Before… Continue reading Sunday Catch Up #9

Your Tribe – Having a good group of friends

It was a dreary Saturday in March, but inside a gorgeous house in West Sussex, the atmosphere was bright and full of laughter. As we left late that afternoon, getting into the car after waving our goodbyes, giving hugs out, and making promises to arrange something again ASAP, I turned to Pete and said, “I… Continue reading Your Tribe – Having a good group of friends

Sunday Catch Up #7

What a week! I feel like having a four day week after a long weekend makes the week so much more exhausting! I've been knackered these last few days and whilst I admit this could be period related, I'm also adamant it's because of the four day week... And still recovering from the clocks going… Continue reading Sunday Catch Up #7

Sunday Catch Up #5

Evening all! It's a late Sunday catch up this week! The weekend just seems to have run away from me - it's been a busy one. Plus, I always find it so disruptive when the clocks go forward. You blink and it's 7pm (technically 6pm, which is even worse) and you can't work out where… Continue reading Sunday Catch Up #5
