The Isles of Scilly

 i took a trip to the isles of scilly a couple of weeks back for work, and boy was i blown away by it's beauty.
It was like landing in paradise.
I never realised how close it was before, and so easy to get to.
The flight itself was such a treat, the water so clear it felt like i was on the other side of the world not off the coast of Cornwall!

Once we landed in St Mary's we headed out for lunch.
I filled myself with fresh crab and dranks lots of tea with scones.
Needless to say i was in heaven! 

I've just got back from a trip to Exmoor, Somerset and I'm off to The isles of Skye tomorrow.
I can't wait! I'm really enjoying getting to do a road trip around The Uk, sometimes you don't realise what is on your door step.

Lots of photos to come soon.

Lets play catch up...!

wowza, it's been so long! In this time i turned 24 (eekk), G came home from Norway, we took a little trip to the seaside, and I've been away a lot with work.

So lets start with my birthday. It was such a glorious day. I managed to get the day of work and woke up very early and was surprised to find the end of the bed  full of very well wrapped presents. Glen bought me the sweetest gifts and i was honestly shocked that he did so well. I'm not easy to buy for! Later that day we jumped in the car and headed over to Kew (west London) for a picnic with my sister and cutest little nephew. We drank cider, ate a lot of  yummy cake (made by my big sis) snacked on picnic food and laughed a lot at sachi eating.

I can't get enough of this little fella. I mean common look at him!

In the evening i had organised a little gathering in a local pub with close friends. I wasn't sure who was going to turn up, and if i'm honest i really did think many people would show, but it turned in to a bit of a party and  i was blown away by everyones efforts to make my night special.

The pub is called Jolly Butcher's in Stoke Newington (just don't the road from my house). Isn't the decor great?!
I will blog about my seaside trip x 2 soon. As i didn't realise how long this post was getting! I have a day off today so lots of relaxing to do. In fact I'm going to spend most of it in my local bookshop choosing a new book then taking it to my favourite coffee shop and i plan to read it the whole afternoon. I can't wait!

Have a great day, people!
