The much awaited arrival

Wednesday, 6 Jan 2010 | Views [1134] | Comments [2]

(28 th April 2009) I never thought I would ever willingly and excitedly get out of bed at 530am ever. No really- anyone who knows me even a little bit would probably know that I don’t do mornings-ever. Here is the only exception. After 14 months ... Read more >

Nott any more!

Friday, 23 Oct 2009 | Views [629]

The time in Nottingham has flown, but to be honest I spent 95% of it looking forward to mum and dad coming over. Yes, it was a great job, good hours (overtime etc.), nice rate of pay, nice workmates, but really I’ve spent the last few months wanting ... Read more >

Friday, 23 Oct 2009 | Views [931]

The Lincoln Imp

Friday, 23 Oct 2009 | Views [554]

(March 2009) Lincoln, what images are conjured up when you think about Lincoln? Well not much at all to be truthful. All I had heard that there was a nice cathedral there and that they had good Christmas markets. That was about it, and all of this ... Read more >

Jersey Girl

Monday, 31 Aug 2009 | Views [679]

(Jan 09) Perhaps a trip to Jersey to visit Rocky was the thing I needed to put me back in the land of the living both emotionally and physically. After a few weeks sitting in the flat in London barely able to venture down the block to even get groceries ... Read more >

To the point

Monday, 31 Aug 2009 | Views [572]

(Jan 09) Anyone who knows me well will probably know what happened in early January and hence why I have taken so long to write about. Really it is the one reason, not my usual laziness which has made me get so far behind on my blog. To put it simply ... Read more >
