Community Business Weekend part two | Bristol Ferry Boats


Those of us who are Bristolians of a certain age remember the Harbourside before it was trendy (and still use the word trendy). When I was a kid, the area was a working dock and certainly not somewhere you’d head to for a cheeky post-work Aperol Spritz. The area has changed so much and is now our home - I’m happy every day that I look out over the water and see boats chugging by.

Interiors | We're house hunting!

I have big news... We've been scouring Rightmove because it's time for us to find a new home. Actually, scratch that. There's a lovely anecdote in the new Philippa Perry book 'The Book You Wish Your Parents Had Read (and Your Children Will Be Glad That You Did)' where a kid says "we've already got a home, we just need a house to put it in", which pretty much sums it up.

Travel | Barnsley House Cotswolds spa break review


Thanks to an amazing couple of days at Barnsley House, we now have a new Christmas tradition. For the first time in the five years I've spent working freelance, I was determined to have an actual Christmas break. A full fortnight away from the laptop, resting. RESTING. And that began a few days before the kids broke up from school, with our quiet getaway to the Cotswolds.

All the books I read in 2018


Last year, for the first time - inspired by my friend Franky - I kept track of all the books I read in 2018. And here they are, a few reviewed, a few unfinished (I KNOW!*) and with an explanation, a few just listed. Sorry to the authors of those ones, that seems so mean, doesn't it?
