June has been a crazy (and I mean CRAZY) month back in the UK. I have prepared and run two training courses away from home, I have visited my parents in rural mid-Wales, stripped my living room and dining room ready for decorating while we are away, turned around all my washing, ironing and packing… Continue reading Another suitcase in another hall.
It's been a very strange 3 weeks back in the U.K. and a time of very mixed emotions. After spending the past few months circumnavigating the globe with little boy I was very much looking forward to coming back and seeing my daughter, my parents and catching up with my closest friends but that's about… Continue reading A house is not a home.
With travel comes opportunity....with opportunity comes choice....with choice comes decision making! There is no denying it, since we started travelling last July we have been pretty much living the dream life. However behind the scenes I have still been working very hard (honestly!) I have been dedicating many many hours to running my celebrancy and… Continue reading We just can’t get enough!
I still have to pinch myself that I now have a 21 yr old daughter, it feels like just yesterday that I crossed over that threshold myself, however I always questioned those milestone markers which represent our maturity as we grow up. One day we are not considered mature enough to have sex, the next… Continue reading Coming of Age
WE DID IT! 🌎🥂 🚂✈️🛳⛵️🚖🌍 "Single Mummy from Worthing successfully circumnavigates the globe with 7 yr old son" (Can you tell I'm feeling pretty chuffed?)

Tour Guide and Boat Captain 'Albert' from Rarotonga, Cook Islands ....Ok, Ok, maybe not with him, (although he is rather BEAUTIFUL!!!) but I have fallen head over heels in love.......with Polynesia!!! The islands, the people, the culture, the art, the lifestyle, the rituals, just everything. I… Continue reading I’ve fallen in love ❤️
Today, 1st May 2019 at around 2am we crossed the equator aboard the MS Maasdam. It wasn't the first time we had crossed from one hemisphere to another but previous occasions have been only in aircraft, so today was the first time we had actually sailed across the line, and whatsmore we now each have… Continue reading King Neptune Ceremony.
This week hasn't been the best, Cameron got struck down with the flu and was VERY poorly for 48hrs, but thankfully as many kids do he has now bounced up as quickly as he went down. When we arrived in the port of Moorea, Tahiti a few days ago he was quite hot and off… Continue reading Quarantined on board ship!
You don't have to be in Tonga many minutes to understand exactly why Captain Cook named these 'The Friendly Islands'. The welcome of the Tongan people is warm, genuine and loving from the moment you step foot on the land. Today our cruise ship docked in Nuku'Alofa, one of two Tongan islands we will visit… Continue reading Tonga – The Friendly Islands
Visiting Ayres Rock has been on my bucket list for a long long time, but sometimes when you really build yourself up for something it then disappoints - Ayres Rock certainly did NOT disappoint. We did unfortunately get a couple of excursions cancelled, including a sunrise flight over Uluru and Kata Tjuta but it didn't… Continue reading Uluru/Ayres Rock – Mother Nature at her finest
