Mundane Midweek :: Strikes and Domesticity

It’s Thursday, yet for me, it feels like Sunday. This is because I haven’t been to work today, due to industrial action. There aren’t many perks of a strike and the loss of a day’s pay, however it has given me ample time to catch up on my favourite blogs. I have to say, I’ve really […] Read more…

Berlin :: You Have No Idea How Beautiful You Are!

Guten abend! I’m back from Berlin!  Tired and weary but bursting with photographs (as usual!) …What’s that you say? You didn’t know I’d gone? (You might have spotted my excitement in this post here) If you follow me on Instagram (polkadotpinkskies…just saying) you can’t have failed to notice my photographic Berlin spam, for this I […] Read more…
