Blogmas Day 22 (aka Day 25): Happy Christmas from London!

I’m not really sure what’s happened to my counting skills but I must have missed a day or two somewhere because I’m not yet at Blogmas Day 25 and I should be because if anyone is reading this, then, well today is Christmas day! So Merry Christmas one and all! I hope you all have the […]

A summer night ‘out out’ and about

University seems like such a distant memory sometimes as if it never happened. Yet whenever I see my Uni housemates it’s like I’m immediately a student again, as if I’ve slipped back into my old student ways, giggling and laughing about the things we did in Canterbury, all those years ago. I started this blog […]

My birthday: Notes on turning twenty five

This Saturday I turned 25. Twenty five years of age, people! I’ve reached my mid twenties, I’ve made it; I’m that little bit closer to thirty. How terrifying is that! But this year, instead of my usual excitement about the onset of birth related celebrations, I sort of forgot about it. My birthday suddenly came […]

A London Adventure…on a shoestring

If you look in the dictionary, you’ll find that the meaning of adventure is ‘a daring enterprise; an unexpected or exciting incident’ and although my recent adventure to London was far from a daring enterprise, it was certainly full of lots of exciting and unexpected incidents. I certainly don’t miss commuting to London, back and […]

Things I’ve learnt from One Direction concerts

Later today, I’ll be off to the O2 to see One Direction. But I’m still none the wiser about what I should wear. Instead, unable to commit to a decision, I find myself asking the question, What does one actually wear to see One Direction? Admittedly, this will be the third time that I’ve been to […]

Week 40: The good, the bad and the unexpected (The caffeine edition)

Monday: The Good Meeting my lovely South African friend after work for an evening coffee. If I had my way I’d keep coffee shops and bookshops open until at least 10pm. Who needs a pub booth, when you can have a warm, chocolate leather armchair? The Bad Having a horrible day. Sometimes bosses are a […]

Week 39: The good, the bad and the unexpected

Monday: The Good  Getting to see the glorious shard due to a diversion. The Bad A busy, busy day. The Autumn period is c-r-a-z-y in publishing. The Unexpected My 18:05 train was cancelled. Which meant I had to catch the train to London Bridge to get home, which also meant getting the train that ends […]

Week 33: The good, the bad and the unexpected

Monday: The Good Finding solace in Starter for Ten. Couldn’t have put it better myself. The Bad Coming home after a long swim only to discover more wedding drama. Why is life never straightforward? My sister’s fiance’s so-called friend, who offered to film my sister’s wedding, announced –  with 2 weeks to go – that […]

Week 32: The good, the bad and the unexpected

Monday: The Good Getting to work early and starting the day with a creamy coffee. The Bad The rain. Getting absolutely soaked in a monsoon-like downpour, I could have stood in the shower fully clothed and been drier. My shoes broke, my bag got soaked and all my foundation ran all over my white blazer. […]

Week 31: The good, the bad and the unexpected

Monday: The Good The fact that the need for modesty bags to cover dirty magazines has finally been recognised. Couldn’t agree more, no one wants to be flashed when they’ve innocently popped to the co-operative for a bunch of bananas and some rice cakes. The Bad Walking all the way to Topshop to collect my […]
