What the fork?

20th March 2020

I was going to do a Friday feeling post, but what the fork is going on? It doesn’t feel like a Friday, it feels like a long Wednesday at this point, especially if you wfh. I’m not the first to say it, but in true The Good Place style I’m asking you, what the fork […]

19th March 2020

For the forseeable future, most of us will be working from home day in day out without the release of a mini-getaway or splash of sun abroad. We’ve rapidly moved into work at home, live at home and please try not to leave your home, ok? It’s a strange and slightly worrying time for us […]

Highlights of Boston & Cape Cod

18th March 2020

With a beautiful harbour and a vibrant city, Boston is the ideal city and sea break. Last summer I spent a few days in Boston, before we drove down to idyllic Cape Cod.

Travels in 2020

11th February 2020

Last year I managed to take several breaks in the UK and abroad and I absolutely loved it. I visited four countries (two of which I’d never been to before), one new state in the US alongside working part-time and finishing a masters.

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, but I am so glad it’s Friday. I feel as though I could sleep for 12 hours right about now. I’m exhausted from my new job, new commute and meeting a whole bunch of new lovely people. It’s been great, but new things are tiring, as are earlier […]

The end of an era

24th January 2020

This week has been filled with tears, for many reasons, as it is the end of an era. 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. It was a decision made for many reasons; I moved towards Cambridge and […]
