At home, my Mum has what we call the library room. It is possibly one of my favourite places on earth. There are rows and rows of the books she’s read, and there’s so many she’s collected over the years that they line the shelves in her study now, too! Growing up, I soon discovered I shared her love of books. I read everything and anything, finding myself with a particular soft spot for the Jacqueline Wilson books and later on, eagerly waiting at the post box when the new Harry Potter books were due out for delivery…

Ah Valentines Day. Loved by some, liked by many and simply loathed by others. I have sat in all 3 camps, but having been single for a while now, I find myself comfortably in the middle ground; delightful indifference. I have had approximately 40000 promotional emails about what I should do for Valentines, how I can escape Valentines, what Valentines holds in store for me, book this place for Valentines, and my guess is, everyone’s sick of Valentines Day by now, so today I wanted to write about love in a slightly different capacity…

Whew, I’m a little late to post my January round up. This is my first round-up post ever, but they’re one of my favourite things to read on other people’s posts. At the end of every month (well, knowing me probably usually a little late), I’ll be posting my month of memories, starting, of course, with January!

Sundays, over the past few years, were spent proclaiming I was dying after having been out until the sun decided to get up, dancing the night away with girlfriends in SoHo and drinking margaritas like there was set to be a tequila drought in London. Now, I still like a dance, I still like a margarita and I definitely still like a night out, but I’ve also got into the school of thought that weekends – especially Sundays – are rather precious, and should be spent enjoying the day, rather than a gloomy bed day of Hangxiety.

When I was younger, I said I was never ever going to live in London. You couldn’t get me in that big scary city – no way, no thank you. Swap beautiful rolling green country side and animals for smog and miserable business people? Absolutely not. Of course, 5 year old me would be wholly disappointed in 27 year old me, but then 5 year old me wouldn’t know of the wonder of some of London’s absolute hidden gems. I’ve told you all about Bishops Park before, but today we’re exploring Chiswick House & Gardens…

What to do, in that odd slump between Christmas and New Year? And especially what to do, if one of your best girlfriends hits the big 3-0 in that time, too? There was only one thing for it. Grab your passport, hop on a 90 minute flight, and find yourself in fairy tale Prague…

It’s probably a little bit early to be doing a round-up post, as I imagine most organised bloggers have them written and scheduled neatly for arrival on 31st, but, I’ve finally got time to breathe and I’ve finally had a chance to get my headspace back together, so I wanted to get back on the blogging horse, so to speak, with a bit of an explanation as to where I’ve been…

I’m half and half. I love the countryside (I grew up in the sticks), but since moving to London three years ago, I can’t imagine calling anywhere else “home”…
