Playful Promises – Review

Obviously in the end of year sales last year I bought quite a bit of lingerie. I was even talking to a friend and said that I’d gone a bit mad in the sales, not even mentioning that I bought lingerie. He straight away said “lingerie is always a good idea.” When I pointed out […]

Home Away From Home

On my second overseas trip, my parents and I spent three and a half weeks travelling Europe. Our third stop was the city of Nürnberg (Nuremberg in English). A city in Bavaria in Southern Germany.  Back in the 80s my mother travelled Europe just like I’m doing now. One night in Greece, she struggled to […]

Lone Ranger

I have now been solo travelling for two months and 6 days. Everytime I mentioned I was going alone, people would say “you’re so brave!”  But they would also say, “oh, you’ll meet people!” I had dreams of making friends, going out sightseeing together then passing back through a supermarket and cooking up a storm […]

Wilkommen, Bienvenue

I’ve been wanting to start a blog for a very long time, and even tried (and failed) to start a youtube channel. I quickly learnt my face is just not videogenic (like photogenic, but on video). I’ve always been a writer, ever since I was a kid I’ve been scribbling in journals. I now have a […]
