And The Rain Came Pouring Down

“It’s looking more like autumn than summer – we’ve swapped sandals for umbrellas.” – Laura Tobin, Good Morning Britain

Once again, I find myself wrapped up tight inside my winter coat and fighting a losing battle against strong autumnal-like (yes,that’s right!) winds. Gone have the sunshine and off-the-shoulder tops, as we’ve seen the return of thick jumpers. Even the scarves are back out!

Birthday Bash Round Two!

With so much going on, I haven’t had time to write up about what a fantabulous birthday celebration (week long) I had! Today is no different, as in a few short hours I shall be jetting off to Spain.

Murcia, here I come!
