This year has been… challenging, to say the least. SO! I’d really like to try to set myself up for even just a marginally better year in 2020
After 5 years, we finally got to visit Italy again. I think we were both in need of just getting away for a little while and this did the trick! Already can’t wait for our next trip back. We stayed in Harrys parents house, had the log burner on in the evenings, lay ins withContinue reading “Trip to Italy”

We’re moving back to Suffolk next week (aaaahhh, still so much to pack)! Last weekend we went to visit our new house, in our new sleepy riverside town, to see how the renovations have been coming along. I’ve not even moved in and I’m in love with it – hope I’m not jinxing it byContinue reading “A New Place”
Mildred has been part of the family (yes, she has a name) for a couple of years now. I’ve repotted her before (and propagated a few of her leaves), but this time she’s so huge I thought I’d treat her to a new pot AND something to climb up, to avoid the amount of horizontal room she’s currently taking up becoming overwhelming.

This week all that busyness has caught up with me, and I’m now sitting at home nursing a horrible cold, but through the flurry of balsam tissues, I’m still thrilled to be here.
The weekend was warm, busy and a little intense we found a place to live in Hastings – the first place we saw! It has beautiful bay windows and original fireplaces, I’m now dreaming of decorating it with all of our things and cycling to work on the seafront. Zissou is going to love theContinue reading “A Warm Weekend Through My Phone”
In the first few weeks of May I’ve snoozed on pebbled beaches, had days out with friends, exercised more, somehow managed to avoid getting sunburn, (or a tan for that matter) and Illustrating little things I wouldn’t normally for my new job (!!!) Its nice to be branching out and challenging myself
