Farewell Sweet Pup

I recently lost my gorgeous pooch, who’d been with us for 17 years.  Dennis’ life began with us after our previous dog, Harry, died. We had gone to the kennels after school, as mum was needed to do the paperwork and pick up his ashes. As a distraction, the kennel owner took my brother and…

Being a Proper Londoner

I’ve now been working in London for two months, and living here for nearly three. I wasn’t ever really set on the idea of truly being a Londoner, and I think a part of me kept considering fleeing home, so it didn’t really stick. But I finally feel like I’m learning the London ways and…

My Favourite Destination: Demre, Turkey

I’ve recently returned from a short stint of travelling to Austria with work, and I don’t have any travels booked for the foreseeable future. For me this is a rarity and it’s had me thinking about some of the places I’ve been fortunate enough to live. While working as a Nanny for a tour operator,…

Travel Diaries: El Tarter, Andorra

I recently went on holiday to Andorra to ski. I have only ever really skied in France – with the exception of my first time in Austria and Switzerland this year – so this was something completely new and different for me. I have been completely swamped at work over the last few weeks (tends…

The Perfect Life

I recently saw this on Instagram, and I think it’s so bloody true.  Sometimes I like to think I have my life together; I have a job, I’ve moved into a new flat in London, and I couldn’t be happier with my other half.  But really that’s absolute bull crap.  I got my job on…

A New Chapter

This weekend we finally moved into our new flat in London. Hurrah! I thought it may never happen, and look at me now!  I have never ever moved house before. Ever.  I have moved to a new room at uni, and I’ve moved into houses for second and third year, and moved to other countries…

The Worst Types of People on the Slopes 

You all know exactly who I mean. Those people who make you want to rip off your skis and hit someone over the head with them. (Would I ever!?) Here are a few of my chosen favourites (you are not favourites, stop doing these things): The Lift Lingerer  You know the ones. Comes flying down…

Why seasons ruined my life 

Don’t get me wrong here. Seasons are probably the best thing I’ve ever done. I met people I never would have met in my normal life. I made lifelong friends. I met the guy that I’m planning on spending the rest of my life with. (Cute eh!) However for all their good points, seasons have…

Doris

Need I say more? For those of you lucky enough to have not looked out the window yesterday, let alone leave the house, Doris is the storm that has been terrorising the UK for the past 24 hours. Doris is a little bitch. After nearly being blown away while walking from the station to work,…

Season Life: We’re back!

Somehow, I’ve accidentally ended up back in the mountains living a miniature season. One of the perks of my new job: I get to spend a few weeks back in my favourite place in the world. There is absolutely nothing better than being back in the mountains. Any stress or worry just seems to disappear…

Travel diaries: Santorini 

I’m sitting at my desk, daydreaming about going on holiday. Not a rarity, seeing as I work at a holiday company and 90% of my emails are from clients that have just booked to jet off to an exotic location. In the summer of 2016 I finally visited the island I’ve always dreamed of: Santorini. Thanks…

Please Mind The Gap

As you may or may not already know, I am currently working in London and not living in London. I am commuting from about an hour out of London. Followed by 40 minutes of tubes.  Now I have commuted before. But through places that looks like this:  Obviously the London commute isn’t quite the same….
