Despite suffering from a minor chest infection, it was nice to get away from London for a few days. I might have taken this place a little bit for granted last summer whilst visiting for the first time, but honestly, the more time I spend here, the more I’m convinced that I’ll never get tired of this view!

I’d also forgotten how liberating it feels to have access to a car and to be able to drive around without having to rely on public transport. We decided to go on a mini adventure one of the days to explore a close by seaside town.

We had a lovely stroll around the old part of town and enjoyed an aperitif in the sunshine by the sea. Then before heading back home we somehow managed (by luck!) to get a table at what seemed to be one of the most popular restaurants in the area. I had a fish soup that was divine – really wish I could eat more seafood here in the UK!

All in all, a great long weekend spent in the company of two of my favourite people. Not sure what I’ve done to deserve them but thanking my lucky stars every day that I have them in my life. Can’t wait until we’re reunited again in June!

Thank god this awful year is over, it’s been a rollercoaster to say the least!

The year started with 2 bad heartbreaks and then continued to worsen as I I lost my job, lost all my own savings and ended up on crutches just before Christmas.

But I also had some ✨amazing✨ times!

My best friend got married, I ran a marathon, I travelled loads and most importantly, I had an abundance of love & proper belly laughs. Here’s a quick recap…

JANUARY- New beginnings & lots of running

 

FEBRUARY – Paris trip & friends visiting

 

MARCH – Wedding dress hunting & AW laughs

 

APRIL – London marathon & hen weekend

 

MAY – BFF’s wedding & more running

 

JUNE – BBQ’s & midsummer

 

JULY – Italian wedding & Swedish summer

 

AUGUST – Turning 30 & Spanish sun

 

SEPTEMBER – Italy, Italy, Italy

 

OCTOBER – Reunited friends & DIY

 

NOVEMBER – Budapest & DJing

 

DECEMBER – Ugly sweaters & family

I feel extremely grateful for the good times that I had and for the stronger person I have become because of all the shit 2016 brought, but equally, I can’t wait to put this year behind me!

On a lovely spring day about 5 months ago, my best friend got married. It was an amazing day filled with so much love and laughter. She recently got the pictures from the big day so I decided to share a few here on the blog.
