Columbia Road Flower Market

Each Sunday, the Columbia Road Flower Market is held in East London, just off Hackney Road. It’s on every Sunday from 8am – 3pm, whatever the weather. This weekend has been gloriously sunny, and my friend Hannah asked if I wanted to go to the market, so Dougie and I headed to Hoxton to enjoy…

London is the place

London is the place I’ve lived for nearly 10 years, the place where I met my fiancé and where I met my best friend. London is the place where my son was born. London is the place where I fell in love with theatre, and in doing so, where I met some of the most…

All the little things: May

May has been a pretty busy month, though much less eventful than April. The big change this month was that I officially went back to work. I’m mainly working from home, but I am going into the office once a week, which is a huge deal for me. The first couple of times I went…

Foodies Festival

Bank Holiday Monday was spent with the lovely Abbey at Syon Park, exploring the Foodies Festival. Be warned, this post is mainly going to be photos of food 🙂

Baby AND a social life?

Does having a baby mean giving up your social life? I recently read this post by the lovely Sarah which hit the nail on the head, and got me thinking. Every so often I go on Facebook or Twitter or wherever, and I see posts such as: “Everyone I know is like: ‘Hey, I’m getting…

All the little things: April

Safe to say, April has been an incredibly busy, but exciting month for me. It’s also the last month of my maternity, which is making me really, really sad. I feel like I’ve been in a lovely, exhausting, surreal, sleep-deprived bubble for the last few months, and I’m really anxious about the change… I’m being…

Driving through anxiety

For those of you that follow me on Twitter or Instagram, you may have seen that I passed my driving test. While this may not seem like a big deal for some, for me, it was a huge, huge achievement. Full disclosure: this was my fifth attempt.

First family holiday

I’ve spent the last week in Portugal with Sam and Dougie, our first family holiday. It was such a lovely week, although holidaying with a baby does not lend itself to a chilled, relaxing week by the pool! We went to Carvoeiro in the Algarve. It was actually where Sam and I went for our…

All the little things: March

I can’t quite believe we’re already coming to the end of March already?! Although I’m excited because it means our family holiday to Portugal is fast approaching, but much less excited that it also means my maternity leave is coming to an end – how on earth am I going to survive without spending all…

Etsy Haul

While I love shopping of any kind, Etsy is one of my favourite places to search when I’m looking for anything cute, unique, decorative or for a gift. I spend far too much money on there, but I absolutely love the fact that buying something on Etsy means I’m helping to support a small business….

Getting to know me – 28 facts

I’ve been blogging for a couple of years now, but it’s only recently I’ve made a real push to become more active and engage with others, especially on social media. I was thinking about how much time I spend chatting to others on Twitter or Instagram or through blog comments, but aside from my actual…

Bucket list

I love having goals to work towards; I’m always infinitely more motivated if I have something specific that I want to achieve, and so I’ve put together a bucket list of things I hope I can do in the next ten years. Some are small, some are much bigger, some I’m already actively working towards,…
