A swift half in Amsterdam

Happy September all! This weeks challenge from redmatter was to write a recent adventure. Easy Peasy. As August was waning on, the husband and two our our best mates decided we needed a good old knees up and a break from everyday life so we booked a swift two night stay to one of my favorite cities, Amsterdam. We'd all been before and in my case this would count as my fourth time and no, in case you ask, I am definitely not bored of it yet!


Talks About Design & Stuff

Well hello there you glorious bunch of people! Welcome to May (can't believe it's here already) and welcome to Spring (she says optimistically). So, the last couple of weeks have been a bit mental, not only with some awesome new work coming in but also because a few months back I was asked by the very persistent Dan Spain of Dan Did That fame, if I would possibly, maybe consider talking at an event he was organising all about Design & Stuff...

Christmas in Cardiff City

Hello all you little elves! I hope everyone is well! I've been completely run down with a nasty cold over the last week but I've been trying to get into the festive mood all the same. I was struggling just up until I was whisked off to dinner by my fiancee last night in such a romantic fashion and after a stroll through the streets of Cardiff it was hard not to feel Christmassy! Every year the streets of Cardiff seem to become ever more decadent and I hate to think how many bulbs it's taken to light the Castle!
