    38 Week Pregnancy Photographs – Just a Little Bit Soppy

    Something you will rarely see is a sensible photograph of me. I am the least photogenic person of everyone I have never known and this translates into me NEVER letting people point a camera at me. My OH is also the least “couply” man in the world and doesn’t even like me posting photo’s of …

    The little things you miss that are right under your nose

    Just over a year ago the OH and I went for a nice Sunday pub lunch and a mooch about our local flea market; a very rare day out, just the two of us. While we were there we spotted this picture. Well, I say picture but it’s actually a table top. One of those lazy …

    Tête-à-Tête at Terre à Terre – Brighton Restaurant Review

    I was going to add this at the end of my Wittering post yesterday but I decided that it was so mind-blowingly incredible that it deserved it’s own post entirely. We were hoping to have a meal out with the in-laws on Monday evening in Wittering before we headed home. Unfortunately most of the pubs …

    I love Fireworks. Really. I REALLY love Fireworks. As soon as the first leaves start to drop, I get a bit twitchy. At some point I will walk into a shop and buy a hat, gloves and a scarf. Sometimes I don’t even realise I’ve done it. But there they are, all snuggly and warm …
