Autumn is my favourite time of year here in London (followed closely by Spring!). The weather is great, and the leaves are changing colours. I can get out my scarves and hats again and it begins to feel like Christmas. This Autumn provided a lot of really lovely things: I had a friend visit, we... Continue Reading →
East London with Erica
Autumn 2018 brought four lovely people to visit: Colin, Erica, Danielle and Caitlin. I've known Erica for almost my whole life. Her cousin is my childhood best friend Kristin and we've all been pal-ing around for quite awhile! Erica and I have a lot of the same interests; true crime, beer, cheese.. ha! So I...

With the impending birth of my first niece I realised I had better get working on her quilt! I found a cute quilt store I wanted to check out called 'The Quilt Room' out in Dorking. It was about an hour train ride and a bit of a hike from the train station to the... Continue Reading →
Colin Comes to Visit!
Back in 2009 I met my friend Colin working on Arthur Christmas at Sony. He's full of fun and adventure and was so glad to hear he'd be in town for a few days. I took him to alot of my favourite spots - many I have mentioned in previous posts. Our friend Carla came... Continue Reading →
I was looking for an easy day trip out of town and landed on St. Albans - sadly I decided this on a Sunday and I think it is actually better to go on a Saturday as it has quite a good market I'm told. From St. Pancras it's only 20 miles away via ThamesLink.... Continue Reading →
Stonehenge and Avebury
Many will tell you Stonehenge isn't worth it. I tell you it is. I really enjoyed it. My friends Peter & Liam invited me to join them on a jaunt out to see Stonehenge in their hired car for the day. It was such a nice trip! Those boys are great fun. The weather was... Continue Reading →
1 Year in London!
September 2018 brought my 1 year anniversary living and working in London. It's been amazing, challenging, exhausting but mostly it's been rewarding. I love my job and the people I work with. Living here has afforded me the opportunity to travel to places I never would have considered otherwise (eg Estonia, Poland). I spent much... Continue Reading →
Summer in London – 2018
A lot happened in the summer of 2018. Lots of rain, lots of heat, Trump visit, Trump protests, a wedding, the world cup, going out with friends and lots of photos of flowers and Regent's Park. On top of all of that my flatmate bought a place in King's Cross so we moved over there.... Continue Reading →
James and I headed to Kew Gardens in some absolutely perfect summer weather. I mean it was perfect for everyone but me, I am not a fan of the heat, I get a bit grumpy! Kew Gardens is an EXCELLENT out of town trip. It's about 45 minutes by tube from Central London and if... Continue Reading →
London – Sky Garden and Brick Lane
Next time you're in London be sure to book a visit to London's Sky Garden. You can only book a week or two ahead but there are multiple times to visit. It's easiest to get tickets during the week rather than on a weekend. My mom and I went the day after we returned from... Continue Reading →
