It’s been nearly a month since James and I got married and I’ve finally adjusted to life without planning a wedding. We took the whole planning thing very relaxed right up until the last week so I didn’t think I’d miss it so much, but it’s strange not having this big event to work towards.… Read More We got married!
Recently I was lucky enough to have a tour of the Lego factory in Denmark (you can read more about it here) and my factory fun hasn’t stopped there: How do you top visiting the headquarters of one of the biggest and most recognisable brands in the world…? With one of the biggest, most recognisable… Read More Rolling off the production line
There’s a magical place, we’re on our way there, with toys in their millions, all under one roof; it’s called… Well sadly Toys’R’Us don’t need that catchy little ditty any more, but perhaps the new Lego house could use it instead. Billund, Denmark; the home of Lego. Nearly 90 years ago the founding family of… Read More Unleash the child in you
There are so many foodie places I want to visit on Gloucester Road in Bristol but rarely find the time to get up there. We live near the SS Great Britain and are surrounded by great bars and restaurants so often opt for something closer to home. Sometimes though, when you hear of a place… Read More Ceres Coffee, Stokes Croft
Wedding planning can take over your life. Up until recently I thought we were doing quite well; we seemed to spend a small proportion of our time planning the big day and had a good balance of other activities. However, with our impending nuptials just around the corner, it’s now part of pretty much every… Read More A Beginner’s Workshop in Calligraphy
For those of you that don’t know, James and I are getting married at the end of May and the planning/preparing/stressing is in full force. Time is always running away from us but when you have an impending wedding that you’re planning and doing almost every detail yourselves, you wish you could put the brakes… Read More Roadtripping in Denmark
We eat out a fair bit. What can we say- it’s something we enjoy! Sometimes though, after a hard or long day, you can’t beat a takeaway can you?! No getting ready to go out, no travelling, no food preparation or cooking, and minimal tidying up; it’s win, win, win, win! As if that wasn’t… Read More Takeaway you don’t need to feel guilty about!
When was the last time you properly unwound? With the stresses of work and daily life it’s hard isn’t it? For us we normally switch off by having a meal out, enjoying good food and drink. We were recently reminded though that there is another way; by doing something creative and learning new skills we… Read More Feeling crafty
You don’t get much for free these days do you? A smile or a piece of advice if you’re lucky; both wonderful things, but unlikely to keep you entertained for the day. Thankfully there is still one great way to spend a day which is completely free, and as Winter retreats and Spring starts to… Read More These boots were made for walking
You won’t get a lot of political opinion on this blog; that’s not really what it’s for, and neither Steph nor I are particularly preachy at the best of times, unless we’ve found a great new restaurant we want to share. But here’s a tragedy, which unless you live in the country, you probably won’t… Read More What a waste
