Changing gears...

Picture from Wikipedia

It has been an amazing week away. A chance to relax and talk and sleep in and spend time together away from the demands of London, work, life in general. Puerto de Mogán is such a perfect destination for us - quiet (but not too quiet), sunny, cheerful - and the break has made both Matthew and I look look visibly happier and healthier. It has been grand.

But now, London calls us back. We complete tomorrow, then have a weekend of DIY and house stuff. Monday is back to work for us both, as well as the start of a huge week of packing for the big move next Saturday. It's going to be busy, stressful, exhausting....but all the more easy to deal with after a nice chilled break in the sun. Well, that's the hope, at least!

Where do you like to go to for a relaxing holiday?
Do you have a favourite sunny spot?

  1. Wow, looks like a beautiful place!

  2. I hope it all goes really well. What a great change of pace!

  3. What a beautiful photo. Who wouldn't feel rejuvinated after being in a place like that? Hope you sail smoothly into the move and get to relax some afterwards. Glad you had a fun getaway.

    For me, it's always the Bahamas...a cruise is only 15 min. away from me (I'm not far from the Port of Miami)...and I love when we stop at one of the islands for a bbq and hair braiding. Sooo relaxing. I must do it again soon!

  4. I'm excited for your new journey!!

  5. I don't think I ever do relaxing holidays - it's always let's go see places! That said, when all of the legal stuff is done I am dragging Sean to Costa Rica to do NOTHING except get sun. And maybe go see the rainforest.


Thank you for your comment - I do read them all but it may take me a little while (a couple of days) to respond during busy times. I love reading what you have to say!

Have a wonderful day!

About Me

I believe in 80s pop, 90s teen movies, and proper thank you notes. I just like smiling...smiling's my favourite.

I write here about London, food, books & travel, and a lot more besides. I'm never happier than when having adventures, cooking for friends, or lost in a good book.

If you'd like to work together, or if you'd just like to say hello, my email is:
