10/01/21 – Carshalton cycle trip!

I woke up to this glorious wintery scene this morning. This isn’t a black and white photo, it’s covered in frost! I waited a couple hours for it to thaw a bit and then popped on my many layers and headed out for a cycle. I went to Carshalton, round to Purley and then homeContinue reading “10/01/21 – Carshalton cycle trip!”

17/01/16 – Snow is here!

Ooo I love snow, it’s even more special when it’s in your own back garden! We woke up to an inch or so of snow this morning and it automatically made eveything look so lovely. We didn’t do much today until around 9pm when we suddenly decided to sort the whole house out, so itContinue reading “17/01/16 – Snow is here!”

01/01/16 – Sliding into 2016!

Happy New Year everyone! I hope you all had a fantastic night. I was definitely fuzzy headed through a majority of today.. But we made it out there again, even with my dodgy wrist – yay! I successfully made it down the green run, so I’m super chuffed at my gradual progress!

30/12/15 – Swiss Sunset

Our first full day in Switzerland, and my first ever time snowboarding in real snow! We started on the small slopes today.. being overtaken by kids with smaller skis than my feet.. but I definitely have made progress! Slow and steady, and trying to overtake a toddler or too. At sunset Nic and I wentContinue reading “30/12/15 – Swiss Sunset”

Organising day today – we’ve finally finished the study! With one last trip to IKEA (our fourth trip this year) it’s all completed.. So we’re both happy bunnies! We also went shopping for snow boarding supplies as we’re running out of time before we head home for Christmas.. I did so well and got prettyContinue reading “12/12/15 – Snow shopping!”

11/12/15 – Swiss Alps Prep!

Nic and I both booked today off so we could have our own long Christmassy weekend together. We went for a lush cooked breakfast at Regency Cafe in Victoria, then snowboarding in The Snow Centre in Hemel Hempsted! It was my first time so Nic booked me a three hour beginner lesson as a present.Continue reading “11/12/15 – Swiss Alps Prep!”

03/12/15 – Edinbrrrrr!

Much colder today in Edinburgh, I even walked through a snow shower on the way to the airport! Snooooow!! Love it! It was another full day of testing but it was incredibly interesting and went past very quick. Now just waiting to take off, to go back to London!

11/02/2013 – I thought we were done with this?!

Apparently not, the snow is back in London! It’s exceptionally wet and cold – what you’d expect from snow really.. Had a lovely couple of drinks with Jas after work and then dinner with Claire at Revs! This is the beginning of my unhealthy week, need to get back into running pronto! (Struggling to getContinue reading “11/02/2013 – I thought we were done with this?!”

Oh no, here it is, back again! Got caught out in the snow this evening after spending most of my day tucked up in bed, duvet days are the best..

21/01/2013 – It’s like we never left Newport!

For those who have followed this blog for a while, you’ll recognise Claire as one of my most commonly featured friends (and also my flat mate for the last 6 months in London). When we lived in Newport we used to go to Revs most Mondays for naughty food.. Today we relived that and hadContinue reading “21/01/2013 – It’s like we never left Newport!”
