A week in (unsuccessful) work outfits: WFH edition

This was supposed to be just another one of my week in work outfits posts, the twist being that I’m working from home right now, which given the current situation is not really a twist at all.   I’ll tell you what happened: I really wanted to get dressed a bit more *properly* after my first full WFH week saw me in… Continue reading A week in (unsuccessful) work outfits: WFH edition

Read. Watch. Listen. | Volume 3

Well, when I decided to start writing about the type of entertainment that can be consumed in your home as a blog series I had no idea just how relevant it would be just a few short months later. I know a lot of people have significantly more time than usual on their hands right now, but even for those for whom time is still in short supply,… Continue reading Read. Watch. Listen. | Volume 3

All the best places I ate vegan food in Lisbon

I no longer feel much in the way of worry that I won’t be able to find good vegan food when travelling, and certainly not in European cities, where I’ve eaten some really amazing plant based stuff.

Twenty Twenty: a look ahead

Well, THIS has come around a little sooner than I anticipated. One moment I was eating sausage rolls for breakfast, downing quince gin liquer (found myself with three bottles of the stuff, don’t ask) and indiscriminately scoffing chocolates at any time of day or night, and the next I was awoken at 6am by a cuckoo (that’s… Continue reading Twenty Twenty: a look ahead
