The Canal Boat


Our canal boat holiday in the first week of April this year was pretty darned wonderful – it was the perfect break from university and placements for me (and well-deserved, too!). Here’s a photo-centric post of our holiday, punctuated by a few words…

Photo an Hour: 24th February, 2016

Here’s my photo an hour for February! It was a mid-week day on one of my days off, and my mum and step-dad came over to help me with some DIY shenanigans. It ended with some shopping, kitty cuddles and silliness with chocolate. Without further ado…

Photo an Hour: 31st January, 2016


I thought I better post my photo an hour from January before we get much deeper into February… I ended up taking the photos on the last day of January, mostly due to the non-stop craziness from packing, moving, decorating and keeping up with my university work. It was a lovely, slow Sunday, our first real day of relaxation since 2016 started, I’d say!

… Back from Bristol & Bath!


Hello lovelies!


Jack and I returned from Bristol and Bath last night, having eaten some of the most amazing food, as well as pogging ourselves full of wine and ale (not to mention going to a spa!). We had a fabulous weekend, and I was hoping to share some of it with you today via a photo an hour post that I took on Saturday… However, time has not been on my side and I’ve not managed to get the photos edited and ready for a blog post (boo!). So, in the meantime, take note of how thrilled we look in the banner above – we’d just had a delicious meal at The Pony and Trap and were feeling pretty pleased with our scrumptious food and the view we’d been treated to throughout our meal.


Hope you’ve had a grand weekend too!

This was one of the loveliest days in forever – Jack and I spent the day in London pottering about, before going for a gorgeous evening meal and then meeting Bags for cocktails at Meltdown. Here goes..!
