I, like many have watched with horror at the recent bush fires raging out of control in Australia and in New South Wales in particular. The damage done to both the wildlife and their habitat is beyond horrendous. We made a donation to the Australian bushfire fund and sponsored an injured koala named Paul, whom… Continue reading Pray for Australia, pray for rain (just not tonight)
Sad goodbyes and new hellos.... A new adventure has begun and we have arrived safely in Singapore after a 13hr flight which was almost an hour late taking off (a mechanical problem with one of the engines never installs you with confidence whilst you're sat on the runway, but hey!). We were fortunate that we… Continue reading We arrived!!
Around the globe AGAIN in 2020 It's almost a year to the day that Cameron and I set off for our first circumnavigation around the globe.

Home & Away (No, not the Australian soap opera!) Having circumnavigated the globe this year taking a particular interest in history and rituals around the world, it's actually made me more appreciative of my home county and our own little family rituals. I've often moaned about living in Sussex, but actually it has absolutely everything… Continue reading Family Traditions
Barbados - Sun, Sea, Sand...and cocktails ! Not going to lie, all those months travelling with a 7 year old (6 when we set out) was hard going at times, add to the mix providing him with an education and running my business remotely, it was pretty full on and as amazing as the whole… Continue reading I’m busy doing nothing
I am sooooooooooo excited. I am actually having a weeks holiday CHILD FREE. Now don't get me wrong I love both my kids to bits, but having spent the last 13 months 1:1 with a 7 yr old (6 when we started out) my brain is completely frazzled. As well behaved as he is he… Continue reading Child Free Holiday
