Slightly belated, but I do love a list ( from meal plans, to jobs I need to do in varying order of urgency, my house is covered in them!), and I have finally gotten around to committing this one to “virtual” paper thanks to being tagged in a “plans for 2019” post by the lovely […]
Not completely picture perfect thanks to the blue van, but a gorgeous spot nonetheless, and a picture I posted on my IG feed and wanted to include here as well… Taken on Friday in my Grandparent’s beautiful village. My lovely Gramps is slowly succumbing to Alzheimer’s, and whilst it’s heartbreaking, I am determined to spend […]

A little interval in my Sud Tirol posts to give you a kind of mini tour of the new house, a sort of before and after if you will. There have been a few requests! Talk to most expats that have made that return trip, and I guarantee that nearly all of them will tell […]

Munich does Autumn particularly well, and whilst a lot of people head to the Englischer Gartens in the Summer months to relax and enjoy […]
Late to the party today, but this photo – taken this morning whilst the little one was busy exploring his Great Grandparent’s house – made me appreciate that despite how weird it can feel at times, there are an awful lot of good things about being home! It’s not a technically brilliant shot, but it’s special to me.
