Out and About: Draughts

London is full of weird and wonderful cafes and restaurants. From the cereal cafe where you sit on beds, to the owl cafe, with actual real live owls. While I haven’t visited any of the really extreme places like these I did visit Draughts recently. What is Draughts I hear you asking?  Well it’s a… Read more »

Out and About: Dorset Days

I spent a lot of my childhood in Dorset. Dorset is where my Dad grew up and where my Grandparents lived for all of my childhood years. I have so many fond memories of days and weeks spent visiting my grandparents and exploring their county. The lazy walks around Wimborne Market, the kitkats at the… Read more »

Out and About: London To Do

One of the things I’ve missed most about not living in London over the past almost three months (how is it that long already?!) is London itself. Yes I know that sounds insane, because obviously I would miss London, right? But I didn’t think I would. In my head I assumed I’d miss not having… Read more »

Out and About: Travel Bucket List

This month I’ve decided to take part in Belinda’s Blog Every Day in May prompt. I won’t be doing every day, after all I’ve already missed the first two days!, but I will be joining in when the prompt is particularly appealing. I like the idea of writing when I get inspired by one of… Read more »

Out and About : The Top 10 of Deal

Last week Fi and I were in Deal for birthday celebrations with the parents and youngest sister and it was so perfect. I don’t think I’ve been this relaxed for quite some time. While that doesn’t bode well with the start of what I’m sure will be a manic week back at work, it was… Read more »
