*76* Chelsea Flower Show 2019

Yesterday Mr M and I had a rare and delightful day out which didn’t involved hockey or cricket or any other ‘ball’ activity. Just the two of us… and thousands other people, admiring gardens, smelling roses, eating ice cream (and dropping it… right darling?)… It was gorgeous, even though I’m absolutely knackered today! So, here […]

*58* Easter weekend in pictures

The weather was glorious. Finally. Spent a couple of hours on Saturday afternoon in a deserted College library… oh my god… terrifying… just weird… like the set of a scary movie. Had to get out of there. Fast. Missed No 3 and Mr away on hockey tour in sunny Holland. Easter Sunday meant lots of […]

*57* a day in London

Yesterday I took a day out from College work and mum-duty to spend a day in London with my sister in law. We crammed a lot in and walked for miles and miles and it was so much fun. The weather was glorious for the first time in weeks too. First stop, the Serpentine Gallery […]

*49* day out – Chastleton House

For the first time in ages, and I mean… months, yesterday we had a free Saturday; no sport commitment, no school events, no family duties. Nothing. And the sun was shining. I promised you it felt like we were on holiday! ‘The big boys’ were on a hockey tournament miles and miles away, Mr took […]

– 2018/175 – postcards from the Seychelles

It’s a little early, Mr M is still asleep, I’m sitting on the deck overlooking the sea.  It’s a little rough this morning and the sound of the wave crashing over the rocks below me is loud and demands attention.  It reminds you the world is alive. There’s a small green gecko sleeping on the […]

  Another day… more of the same.  I’m not complaining. Exploring with Mr M. I swear this has been put up purely to create a photo opportunity.  It’s pretty but not very comfortable. We went snorkelling.  Bonkers.  The reef/coral situation wasn’t good, apparently ‘El Nino’ destroyed most of it a few years back and yes, […]

– 2018/171 – postcards from the Seychelles

First of all… where is the sun?? No seriously, where is it?  I’m cool with the humidity and the warm temperature… but… ahem, the sun? We arrived on the island of Mahe early morning and were a little disappointed to be welcomed by such grey skies, and then we got over ourselves and geesh… a […]

– 2018/149 – 24hrs in London

Me and the boys took ourselves to the big smoke on Thursday morning; we had finally managed to get an appointment at the Italian Consulate for their passports and we thought we tagged along a visit to the Tate Modern and a mooch about. The weather was glorious and we had a blast.  We caught […]
