It’s been an awesome week!!! Lots of work, lots of laughing, learning properly about where I live, catching up with my best friend who I have known since I was (we were so busy chatting, giggling and reminiscing I didn’t actually take a photo of the two of us can you believe?!) and also hanging out with hot footballers. As you do. I nearly forgot that...

I moved to Cumbria when I was 7. It was just a little bit different to Liverpool where I was born! Although I will add this now as I can already hear my mum, it was the posh side the Wirral where I grew up despite arriving to the world at Liverpool General Hospital. Brampton is the nearest “big” town to my tiny village.   We moved up here because of...

Some people have very different ideas about where I live in the UK, so my friend Amy suggested that I write a blog post about it. At the moment while I am back in England, I live in a tiny village called Low Row which is in Cumbria just off the A69. This is where I have lived since I was 7. The nearest town to me is about 4 miles away and is called Brampton. Our...

My whole family is blue apart from my aunt and uncle but we try and overlook that! For many reasons I have yet to see a game at Goodison since I have been home, but just before Christmas my Dad decided to take a day off work and take me on a tour of the ground. The tours cost £12 for an adult and run on Monday, Wednesday and Friday twice a day unless there is...

So although my pictures of the week are not usually themed, this week they are all snow related. I am possibly in the minority but I think snow is AMAZING!! I love it (well until it turns into grey slush). Even at the grand old age of 34 I still let out a little squeal when I see it! ...

I’ve now been back in the UK since September 2014 and hope to be back in Bangkok towards the end of February. Being back in the UK for almost four months has given me a bit of perspective as life as an expat. I ran into a school friend yesterday in Tesco who I haven’t seen since I was 18. We had a brief catch up about how long it had been and she mentioned...

When I first moved to Bangkok and didn’t work, I filled my days by volunteering at PAWS. There are however many good causes in and around Bangkok that need help from people. Like Seek Magazine. I am sure you will remember Becky as she has guest posted for me a couple of times previously, but this one is a little bit different: “There are always good...

There’s nothing I love better than a rooftop bar in Bangkok. I can spend hours at one, just gazing at the view, lost in my own thoughts. Above Eleven was one of the first ones in Bangkok that I visited and is always somewhere I like to take visitors. What I particularly like is that Above Eleven is a little bit different from other rooftop bars in Bangkok...

The first week of a new year is always a busy one, and I have been non stop this week writing articles, drafting and emailing tenders, getting back on track with all of my clients following the Christmas break and cooking non stop in an attempt to become healthier. Then I suddenly realised yesterday that I have been glued to my computer non stop that I hadn’t...

One of the lovely things about being home is spending some quality time with my mum – this is probably the most of time we have had together since I was 18. We have been trying to do lots of mother/daughter things together on a weekend, which largely involve shopping and/or eating and an afternoon we had just before Christmas was no exception. No more than ten...
