2021: a year of (unplanned) change

All my life I have been a great believer in the power of planning. You would think by this point I would have realised that in real life that is rarely the case and that the complexities of the world around me would interfere in some way but no, I still believe deep down that you plan and you execute. 

what makes a great vacation?

Having come back from holiday a little less than 24 hours ago, straight into back to school preparations, the hope of a long lasting restorative effect is long gone.

“Will, work harder! We’re going to nail this front crawl! Then work on your tumble turn!” (Will is 3 years old and was quite happy splashing around in the pool until Dad came back from kayaking).

If you have had any interactions, however fleeting, with any British people in the last week you will know we’ve been having a heatwave. We won’t have been able to not mention it.

Still working through sorting the house out but I did want to share what’s on my bedside table (figuratively, not literally. Bedside table all sorts of a mess).

moving home

We moved house last week. It was, as you would imagine, quite stressful, although not necessarily in the ways I had expected.


It’s amazing as a nation how obsessed we are with weather. Whether the weather is good or bad it is a British conversational staple.
