bye summer

Autumn, hello. I wish I could welcome you with your cooler mornings, shorter (ish) days and the looming thought of wearing warmer layers again with more gusto but I just can’t. Its official, I’m well and truly a summer girl, happiest in flowing frocks, morning swims chasing the waves, salty hair and ending the day with sandy toes watching the glorious sun set over the Indian Ocean. I haved loved this Summer so much (and have got so used to crazy hot days I now think anything under 30 degrees is slightly chilly!!!!) Continue reading

It was the best reaction and had both of us bursting with laughter and I wish we had it on camera! Continue reading

Does everything really happen for a reason?

I say the good old saying “everything happens for a reason” a lot to friends. Didnt get the job? break-up? screwed up your childs birthday cake? Dont have your shoe size left in the most super shoes you've ever seen? You see it's the saying that covers it all, but boy oh boy, trying to listen to my own advice is proving a difficult pill to swallow. I think I may hurt the next friend who blurts it out to me and here is why….
