How I spent my 30th birthday

In case I didn't mention it enough already, I turned 30 last week. To celebrate/commiserate, I took the week off work and ended up with more plans in 11 days than I usually do in 11 months! For those of you who like photos of cocktails and stationery, here's a look at how I spent… Continue reading How I spent my 30th birthday

Plymouth shopping haul

I ventured over the bridge to Plymouth a couple of weeks ago and stocked up on some essential items. I had previously gone through all of the baby stuff we've accumulated and realised that there's actually not much left to get, especially clothes-wise.

Christmas shopping in Plymouth

I went Christmas shopping in Plymouth at the weekend. I say Christmas shopping... it was more like shopping at Christmas. I had already bought everything I wanted to get for other people, so when I came across things that I thought people would like I got a bit pissed. Getting gift buying out of the… Continue reading Christmas shopping in Plymouth
