The dream team: Team Bacon

9th February 2020

One of the things I’m very grateful for is my family, better known as Team Bacon. In Addenbrooks hospital when my Dad was diagnosed with brain cancer, he said, “We’re Team Bacon, Team Bacon can get through anything.”  That pretty much sums up my Dad; a ridiculous sense of optimism in an annoying but charming […]

I’m so glad it’s Friday

31st January 2020

So this isn’t my usual Friday feeling. I feel, mainly, as though I could sleep for 12 hours right about now. I’m exhausted from my new job, new commute and well meeting a whole bunch of new lovely people. It’s been great, but new things are tiring, as are earlier starts and longer days. My […]

But today I say goodbye to my first post-uni or proper job as the Editor of Architecture Magazine at the Peterborough based publishers Media One.

A Weekend in York

19th December 2019

Last weekend Dan and I had a festive weekend away in my university city, York. After three amazing years in the city, I was excited to return and show Dan round my favourite places. With our big coats packed, we headed to the North. Yet, no matter how much I visit or how long I […]

It feels like a Friday

12th December 2019

So I skipped two weeks of my Friday feeling posts (whoops) as I got too into feeling my friday’s rather than writing about them, so now you lucky devils you, it’s a thriple, triple, whiple whammy of positivity from the past three festive filled weeks. And oh my has it been festive! Disclaimer though, this […]
