05/01/21 – Thoughtful gifts

Another damp day outside today and the beginning of England’s third official “lockdown” due to corona virus. I hoping it’s the last though as 1.3 million people have been vaccinated so far now! Fingers crossed. Enough with the doom and gloom though as I was kept happy with this gorgeous candle. It was a presentContinue reading “05/01/21 – Thoughtful gifts”

04/01/21 – Damp desk view

Back to work today after what felt like a simultaneously long and short Christmas break. It was lovely chatting to colleagues again and having more of a routine. I enjoyed hearing the pitter patter of the rain outside whilst being warm and cosy working inside. This evening I launched my new website rebrand! I postedContinue reading “04/01/21 – Damp desk view”

15/11/20 – Soggy catchup

I met up with my friend today for a walking catch up (a luxury of lockdown 2.0). We walked nearly 7 miles over 2.5 hours catching up on so many things. It was truly wonderful and we already have another walk booked in for next week! It absolutely chucked it down but that just madeContinue reading “15/11/20 – Soggy catchup”

18/02/20 – A half day treat

Living a life of luxury today! I took a half day off work to spend some time with Rach for her birthday. We went for lunch followed by wine in the National Opera bar and finally to see Everyone’s Talking About Jamie in the West End. It was my ideal day and we managed toContinue reading “18/02/20 – A half day treat”

02/11/19 – Welcome to Wales

Well the weather isn’t great, but the company is! Nic and I started off today with an incredible massage, followed by chip shop chips. I mean, as days go, this is already a pretty great one. We then donned our rain coats and headed into town to do a spot of shopping which proved toContinue reading “02/11/19 – Welcome to Wales”

31/01/2014 – Rainbow Run

I ran 6.5km this morning before work, I’m definitely getting back into the swing of it, and thoroughly enjoying it. My knee is still playing up but doesn’t seen to be getting worse, so I’m hoping it’ll recover on it’s own. This morning’s run was glorious, it did start heavily raining at one point butContinue reading “31/01/2014 – Rainbow Run”

06/01/2014 – Lazy, Soggy Monday

The majority of London is back in work today, so the weather came out to great us. A horrendously damp morning walking to station, followed by a car driving through a huge puddle right by me, made for a very grumpy, soggy Steph. Onwards and upwards! Had a great PT session at the gym, thenContinue reading “06/01/2014 – Lazy, Soggy Monday”

22/09/2013 – Finding Our Roots

Another lovely day getting to know our extended polish family. We’re out here meeting my mum’s cousins, which means I also get to meet my second cousins! It’s all pretty exciting and nerve wrecking as my polish is appalling (read: non-existent after please and thank yous). We found my great grandparents grave today, it wasContinue reading “22/09/2013 – Finding Our Roots”

21/09/2013 – The Big Polish Day!

After taking so many photos I found it so hard to chose just one for this post, but here it is! Polish weddings are something else, I’ve had so much fun – with so many surprises! This wasn’t a cake with sparklers in it, it’s a boar.. with sparklers in it.. that the grandad ofContinue reading “21/09/2013 – The Big Polish Day!”

20/09/2013 – Heading to Poland

After a wonderful night, I have a killer hangover to follow. But no time to wallow on that – we’re off to Poland! My grandad is polish, and thus we have a huge polish side to our family I don’t know much about. But we’ve been invited to a wedding here, so what better wayContinue reading “20/09/2013 – Heading to Poland”
