How to embrace an unexpected adventure

24th March 2020

As you can tell from the name of this blog, I’m very aware of the unexpected paths life takes us on. Most of these unexpected twists and turns are unwelcome and present issues, as well, you didn’t see them coming. Some unexpected events, of course are good, wonderful even. Marriage, babas, doggos you know. At […]

The end of an era

24th January 2020

This week has been filled with tears, for many reasons. 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. It was a decision made for many reasons; I moved towards Cambridge and wanted to be closer to my nest, […]

That Friday Feeling

24th October 2019

In our house growing up a mad thing would happen on a Friday night. We’d get that Friday night feeling of two days off school, work and instead, two whole days of freedom.

World Mental Health Day

10th October 2017

We are lucky to live in a time when mental health is considered to be as important – if not more important than physical health – rather than it being treated as a taboo subject or a it’s-all-in-your-head-get-over-it problem that mental health sufferers have faced in the past. Yay well done humans for evolving, took […]

The Reality of Living in an Instant Society

8th September 2017

We live in the age of fad diets, quick fixes, instant messenger, social networking, 24/7 live news updates; everything we want to know, do, see, read, be, we are told we can instantly have. This is ingrained in us, text that person now to see if they’re on campus, who was that in the film […]

Cut the crap. 

10th April 2017

Cutting the crap was a NY resolution that Beth and I drunkenly decided on NYE to keep in 2017. And so far, we’re both doing pretty god damn well really. We basically wanted to cut the crap in all areas of our lives, the food, bad thoughts, bad people, bad events, things we didn’t want to […]
