I’ve come to appreciate the none city environment more through the pandemic and lockdown. The ability to escape the city (that I still adore) was taken away from us for so long over the last year that when during breaks of lockdown we were able to go out exploring I relished the chance to walk … Continue reading For the Love of Parks
Day 58: relaxed weekend
Well yesterday started off as a lovely day as I got to see my sister for the first time since the 16th March. Her and my brother made the decision to head home pre lockdown to ride out the storm with my parents. Partly as their respective housemates were leaving and they would be on … Continue reading Day 58: relaxed weekend
Day 46: Battersea
Today I ventured out on a new walk, I headed towards Battersea Park but via the high street rather than the river.

Day 29: Friday!!
It’s Friday!!! Oddly I still get excited by it even though I’m not working nor do I have exciting weekend plans! How strange I am. Firstly, loving the response my post about Singapore got. Turns out I’m not the only one who loves the place. Putting it together has sent me down a YouTube rabbit … Continue reading Day 29: Friday!!
Day 21: A walk through Chelsea
No post yesterday as I was not feeling too great, not sure what it was, maybe just feeling down. Heyho! Much better today. I started the day with my morning walk and decided to take a different route. Mix it up a little bit. Back in the old days when I used to work, and … Continue reading Day 21: A walk through Chelsea
