If you're a people watcher like myself, this is the perfect place to come and sit and enjoy a coffee or indulge in a gelato while you soak up the relaxed atmosphere.
Yesterday I booked online to join a tour visiting the Vatican, something which I hadn't actually been too keen on doing previously, but couldn't seem to find the right tickets for what I wanted to do without the tour guide option. I had the picture of some stuffy old man waffling on about things that… Continue reading Exploring Vatican City
more than made up for the previous days failings in basic customer service. I have eaten at two other restaurants both at which I was served by staff who were very polite and attentive
I have my tickets and passes and I have the knowledge that most of this will go out of the window when the desire to wander takes over.
One of the things I like to do in my spare time and need a little time away from the crazy world, is to drive up to the Derbyshire Dales and soak up the peace and quiet in the valleys and rolling countryside. It's a truly beautiful area of the world and a place where… Continue reading Sunshine, Sheep & Serenity
Whether travelling as part of a large group, a couple or going solo, we all have a little bit of a blind panic when we get to the airport in case we have forgotten something important.

We often expect our loved ones and colleagues to just 'get it' without actually taking the time to communicate what triggers… Continue reading My anxiety is not in charge!
At the start of the year, I finally subscribed to my first Birchbox. A gorgeous little box choc full of beauty goodies to try out each month. Of course there are plenty of other subscription boxes put there, but I chose to go with Birchbox first and see how I got on. I think its… Continue reading I ❤ my happy post from Birchbox!
It's been quite a while since I've put any of my thoughts down in words ... 6 months in fact! So as part of my attempt to get myself in order and complete more of the things which make me happy and keep me sane, I shall be trying to find time to both write… Continue reading Chaos, cats and cocktails!
I recently decided to start running, because lets face it, I'm no sprightly 20 year old any more. I may be slim, but I most definitely am not as fit as I could be. So the running began a few months back now in March (is it a coincidence that I started running just after… Continue reading Staying in shape…ish
