It’s been a rather huge leave of absence from me, firstly due to pregnancy related matters, and then a few unusual weeks of late, namely in relation to the C word! My boyfriend and I, who share the same birthday, had a lockdown birthday, last week but were able to have some online catch ups, … More London (and the world) in lockdown
Walking tours are probably one of my biggest recommendations in London. it’s such a great way to see the city in a more personal way, with a guide that can offer lots of special information about the area you are seeing. I’ve done some central tours, and a few years ago, I did a Jack … More The Alternative Jack the Ripper tour
Andu Ethiopian caught my attention a few times before I made it in, whenever I get the bus up and down Kingsland Road in East London. It’s on a kind of funny stretch of the road, a bit noisy, a bit grubby and not very appealing part, but it’s this bright colourful little place in … More Andu, Ethopian restaurant, Dalston
I get into a bit of a rut with my “where to go’s” from time to time, which is funny really, as you’re surrounded by so much choice in London! I also hate that feeling of going somewhere you think is going to be really amazing as it looks so shiny and promising, but then … More Flour and Grape: pasta heaven!
I’m sat on my bed, eating a bowl of porridge and jam and listening to Perry Como’s “It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas”. This makes me happy! My new arrival, Matt Haig’s “Notes on a Nervous Planet” has been started and is sitting beside me. I’m finishing this week in a place of … More Where is your self love today? How to feel perfectly imperfect and sit with it
Today is my 1 year friend-adversary with Ellie Quinn, travel blogger of the Wandering Quinn (check her out- https://thewanderingquinn.com/) and it seems poignant therefore to complete a blog today around this. Meeting Ellie, as I have no doubt previously mentioned, woke me up to my life. I know, dramatic, but hey it’s true. It woke me … More Autumn blogging reflections- gratitude
Today I am having a home day. It’s the perfect day to recharge and have some alone time, which I need and love, despite being as social as I am too! It feels the perfect day to sit and reflect, and watch the rain pour down outside. It’s so soothing. I’ve been inspired by a … More Cha-cha-cha changes
I have been so, so lapse on my writing for some time. I’m not quite sure why, but it’s definitely lovely to be sat back in front of the laptop again with so end game, no work related activity to complete, other than to share some thoughts and open up. We’re having this seemingly endless … More Give yourself permission (to find your soul)
It’s been quite a few months since I properly caught up with my good friend Helen and so we’ve had to make do instead with text messages that at times resemble mini essays. (Lucky we both enjoy writing them!). I’ve also had some important moments of reflection of late that I need more grounding and … More Our Y-Spa wonder day!
“And how hard I found it”! Haha 🙂 Yep, It’s been a struggle to bring myself back into being well and present this week, there is so much going on with forthcoming move, end of rotation and trying to prep for a 10k run coming up (May 19th!!) but I’ve definitely tried! I’m writing today … More My week of attempted wellness!
