A few of my favourite things #59

I've decided to mix things up a bit on the blog this week. I've done away with my weekly Saturday Share, in favour of a Follow Friday shout out on Twitter and Instagram, plus a top five in my monthly newsletter. Now that my hours have changed at work I've also decided to change my… Continue reading A few of my favourite things #59

Friday Favourites #58

It's been a week of bug walks, family times, books, books and more books! This week I had my hours change approved, so from next week I'll be working an extra day from home, thus reducing my blogging hours. Watch me become the queen of time management! Maybe... We've also had a lot of family… Continue reading Friday Favourites #58

Friday Favourites #56

What a week! On the one hand I love Bank Holidays because hello extra family day! On the other, a shorter working week means something's gotta give. But here we are on the other side (just about), on the eve of September. How did that happen? I don't know about you but I love September.… Continue reading Friday Favourites #56

I haven't half harped on about it), caught up with the family, spent a few days in the office and now Luke has the weekend off, so we have a long family weekend planned. Yay!… Continue reading Friday Favourites #54

12 hours in London

I mentioned yesterday that after my day in Brighton last week I headed into London for a couple of meetings. With one meeting in Southwark at 10am and another in Clapham Common at 1.30pm, plus a flight from Gatwick at 8.25pm, we had some time to explore. There wasn't much I wanted to tick off… Continue reading 12 hours in London

24 hours in Brighton: exploring

In case you missed it, I spent 24 hours in Brighton last week for a work conference. Most of my time was spent at said conference but I did get a chance to explore in the evening and grab a non-hotel breakfast in the morning. I reviewed the fab My Brighton Hotel on Monday and… Continue reading 24 hours in Brighton: exploring

24 hours in Brighton: My Brighton Hotel

Last week I went away for my first work conference - in Brighton! Brighton had been on my list of places to visit in the UK for a long time and I was pleased to have a reason to explore.

I'm writing this post on Wednesday night because, as you read this, I'll be working in London for the day, having just spent the day in Brighton at a conference. Go me!
