Kendal Calling :: Part One :: I’m a Happy Camper!

Have you ever fancied going to a festival? Kendal Calling perhaps? Clare did. Who’s Clare you might ask? Clare is a good friend of mine who decided that right at the top of her bucket list should be a festival experience, minus camping.

Like Pebbles on the Beach :: Stay Calm

They say, when life deals you lemons, make lemonade.    So, when work deadlines came rolling in and life became extremely stressful recently… I did just that.

THE PALACE HOTEL, MANCHESTER

The Palace Hotel, Manchester Recently, I’ve found myself enjoying a number of overnight stays across the north west, and as far as Germany. Work has been chaotic to say the least! With deadline after deadline and a never ending stack of marking and assessments, I’ve really valued each night away. None more so than this […] Read more…

BERLIN // PICTOPLASMA

Berlin – Pictoplasma During the Easter holidays, I was lucky enough to visit the city of Berlin. I’d been once before, during one snowy December in 2009, but had only sampled the tourist sights… the Reichstag, Brandenburg Gate, DDR Museum. I knew there was more to this historic city, so when the chance arose to go back…I didn’t need […] Read more…
