~ Tuesday 11th October 2016 ~

My family is spread all over the continent, and I have had many places I have called “home” over the past few years. I have written about it here. I have just had a lovely heartfelt chat with one of my best friends M, over whatsapp. (What did people do before messaging apps btw?) We met at university and while... View Article

I Have a Personal Trainer.

~ Sunday 9th October 2016 ~

Let me be real and honest. I have a very unhealthy obsession with caramel lattes. In my last post, I talked about getting fit again to be a better mummy for my baby daughter.

I was standing in the middle of a shoe shop with a snapped flip flop in my hand. “Oh, so where are you guys from?” If only I had a penny. I looked at the sales assistant and tried to get a clue as to what answer to give her.
