ADVENTURES: Notes from Hay

The last week of May is always the now internationally renowned Hay Festival – in Hay-On-Wye on the Welsh borders.  We love the town and often visit out of season, spending hours with the kids browsing the many book shops – in particular BOOTHS, probably the most well known, and certainly the biggest.  Filled to […]

Loves : The Lifebuoy Cafe

Last week I was in Fowey, Cornwall on a shoot with Lisa Devlin (more of that later) and I jumped at the chance of a roadtrip, not just because I get to exercise my creative half, but because it meant that I also got the chance to catch up with my cousin Cathy.  She moved […]

Adventures: Campervans, Campfires and Sunny Days

Another bank holiday is looming and we only hope that some of the sparkle from the early May holiday returns.  As I write someone has turned the lights off and there is a deluge outside… but ever the optimist I am hoping for one of those British miracles! Last bank holiday (cant believe it was […]

Adventures: A Snowy Interlude

You may have heard on the news but Sussex had a bit of a Snowy interlude over the past 24 hours!  Not normal for this end of the country and certainly not at this time of year, so it took everyone a little by surprise, including it seems the gritters! Whilst it all looked very […]

Celebrations: Big Bang its Bonfire Night

I don’t know about you.. but November for us thus far has been really BUSY!  Where did October go?  Christmas seems just round the corner, and the demand for our decorations is keeping everyone on their toes! Despite all this, we still found time to attend a Bonfire night this weekend at the childrens school, […]

Life: Muddy Escapades

This week has been half term.. always a juggle with children and work, so we decided for part of it to venture off to the New Forest (only 45 minutes from where we live) for one of our favourite Autumn adventures.  The weather was kind and we spent blissful days on muddy walks, hacks and […]
