3rd September, 2016

What’s been happening this month? I had a few days off work while my parents were staying with me so we got up to lots of touristy things. I wanted to take them to the Sky Garden but I waited too long to book tickets and all the time slots sold out. To get around […]

2nd August, 2016

What’s been happening this month? July has been an action-packed month, and a mixed bag of highs and lows. Early in the month my Nan sadly passed away. Although she’d had some health problems for a while it did come as a bit of a shock as she had seemed to be on the mend. […]

30th June, 2016

What’s been happening this month? June has definitely been the busiest month of the year so far! The first weekend of the month started with a day trip to Upnor Castle and Whitstable. I was a little disappointed with Whitstable to be honest, not sure if I just missed the best parts but I didn’t […]

What’s been happening this month? The month started off well with a sunny visit to Hughenden Manor in Buckinghamshire. However, on the way home from our day out I had a bit of an accident on my scooter 🙁 She’s still with the insurer for repairs which means my plans to escape London on the […]

So this monthly re-cap is a little late… the second half of February ended up being pretty busy so I’ve fallen behind with blogging but hopefully I’ll be able to get back into the swing of things over the next couple of weeks.

Monthly Re-cap: January 2016

30th January, 2016

I’ve never written one of these monthly summary posts before but I enjoy reading them on other blogs, plus I figured it would allow me to document some of the things I get up to that I maybe wouldn’t dedicate an entire blog post to. Let’s see if I can keep these going throughout the […]

A look back on 2015
