I was watching the BBC breakfast news on Saturday morning (now that I am well into my late twenties this is the kind of thing that I do with my weekends.)

Not from passport losing/finding fatigue but because now all my holidays have become a source of fixation as ‘possible proposal opportunities’ (PPO).    I am exasperated too that the PPO is becoming increasingly less glamorous as the months pass.  Give it another couple of years and it will only take us a trip to our local Tesco express to get everyone feverishly squawking- “do you think he’s going to pop the question?!” Continue reading

Sorry for the dearth of updates lately, it’s been super sunny here so being typical Brits we’re not able to do anything when there’s a slither of sunlight. To kick us off again, and keeping with the unseasonable weather of the last few weeks, here is a song that I cannot stop listening to/singing/hearing in my head.

Enjoy!
