Friendsfest

You know when you’ve been looking forward to something for so long and think about what will happen, what will it be like etc.? Well, I think I hyped up in my head what Friendsfest would be like. Don’t get me wrong, it was fun, but I felt it lacked something. Maybe because it was a bit grey and chilly…

8 Months To Go

I somewhat cannot believe it was two years ago we arrived at Cooling Castle Barn’s annual open day, two hours early in order to be able to pick the date we wanted to get married on, as back in 2015 was when the 2018 books were being opened. Third in line, we got our date and now two years on, and with just over…

Minster on Sea

We’ve been visiting the Isle of Sheppey a lot recently as it’s going to be our new home soon (more on that at a later date!), so we decided as it was a lovely, hot day that we’d go down the beach at Minster on Sea, as it will only be a five minute drive from our new house. And wow, it was such a…

The King in the North

It’s been a while since I’ve done any drawing, I’ve had so much going on these last few months and when you sit in front of a computer all day at work, I find it hard to want to do the same when I get home in the evening! But, as the new season of Game of Thrones had started, I really wanted to do…

Summer Storms

I have a fascination with the weather, storms in particular. I love a thunderstorm, and it’s always been a goal of mine to get a really good photo one day of a lightning strike. The other night we had a massive storm, one of the biggest that I can remember, I took hundreds of photos (it was 2 am in the…

Sarah & Aaron’s Wedding

Last Saturday, we went to Paul’s cousins’ wedding in Temple, London. It was a very, very hot day and I felt especially sorry for all the men in their suits, at least us girls could wear something a little more summery and not so stifling! I even went for flats as I just didn’t want to deal with heels…

Pizza in the Sun

With all his hot weather we have been having, I felt I wasting it sat indoors all day (even if I find the heat most irritating most the time, I’m not a summer person at all). So I decided we should go into Rochester, get a pizza and go sit in the sun (well under a tree in the shade as it was very hot). Half an…

A Sunny, Sunday Walk

Pretty buildings and a beautiful sunny day = the perfect walk. I had wanted to get out the house and get some fresh air and I love going for walks, and as it was a lovely warm sunny day (hopefully this weather actually stays now!), we went to Aylesford Priory. I’m always looking for new places to go, and am…

The Harry Potter Day

Beginning of last August, I finally managed to get my hands on some Harry Potter and the Cursed Child tickets (both part 1 and 2). Fast forward 9 months and we finally got to see the plays! I was so stupidly excited – Harry Potter has always been a favourite of mine since I was about 10, and even now 15 years…

48 Hours In Paris: Day 3

Friday and our last day, which once we had got up, had breakfast and checked out, we only had about 4-5 hours left until we needed to be at the station to get the train home. Once again, the weather surprised me, the sun was out, albeit behind clouds at times and the temperature warm, so we headed back down towards…

48 Hours In Paris: Day 2

Thursday morning, I looked out the window to find blue skies and the sun shining. Having been panicking the whole week before, and constantly checking the weather apps to see that they had forecast rain on Thursday and Friday, I was so happy to see the sun. And it stayed out until early afternoon, where it did become…
