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!
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
Stuart Holmes salon in Cheltenham is one of the town’s treasures. It is one of those places I feel completely confident in recommending to someone, even if that does mean it becomes increasingly popular.

I’ve lost count of the times James has had to tell me it’s pronounced ‘van’ not ‘vin’. I’ve been saying it wrong for so long now, my brain just can’t accept it. I’ll get there eventually but in the mean time if I start harping on to you about how great the food at Hotel… Read More Hotel Du Vin’s new Summer menu
My expectations for an English vineyard were pretty low if I’m honest. I don’t know a huge amount about wine, but I do know that for grapes to grow you need a fair bit of sun, and that’s where I thought we’d have a bit of an issue; we get the odd heatwave but it’s… Read More Three Choirs Vineyard
Here comes the summer sun, oh, no wait it’s gone again. That’s pretty much how English Summer time goes. One minute you’re prancing around in shorts collecting all that precious vitamin D, the next you’re wrapping yourself in a warm cardie diving into Netflix. It is unpredictable to say the least. One thing I can… Read More The Clarence Social, Cheltenham
