Overheard in New York City

We’ve just come back from a month in New York.  I still can’t believe we’ve been and gone.  It all happened so fast.  One day I said it’s not fair that they’re taking you away from Ellie for a month when she’s so small.  The next day I said yes, yes I’d like to go [...]

Magic is everywhere, apparently

I remember when I’d first moved to London, and I rode the bus to work, the bus from Brixton to Holborn, squashed up on the top deck with all the other commuters, face pressed against the window, not wanting to miss a moment of my new city.  We’d snake our way down the Strand and [...]

Summer, you can stay.

It’s been a while since I’ve written some Life Drivel.  It’s been a busy time, alternating between deliberately cutting down my hours at work, going on politics-themed trips, going to weddings full of love and light and laughter,  and lounging on my sofa, reading. So far, I’ve approved of summer.  Summer, you can stay. I [...]

On holiday

I wrote about our recent holiday, and you were bloody lovely about my writing.  It made my week. I’m not one of those bloggers that wangs on about the architecture in the foyer of the cutting-edge hotel they stayed at, on holiday.  That’s not my forte, plus, I’m the sort of person who gets more [...]

Being an imaginator

On our first evening we waited for the boat to take us up river to the markets.  I’d remembered the light at dusk, how it seems to last hours, how it makes everything richer, and then dips too suddenly into night.  I’d wanted to show it to Ant.  We stood on the pier and watched the fishing boats coming [...]

Remember when…

…Any Other Woman was born? Remember all those AMAZING competitions we ran? Sarah and her fiance Craig won this incredible giveaway from AOW favourite Erika Szostak of Photo Madly and proceeded to style and star in their very own uber-fabulous, totally personal and engagement shoot. This post is VERY picture heavy, but I don’t apologise [...]

An escape to India

And now readers, time for something completely different. I don’t think that there are many of us who haven’t, at some point, had the desire to just pack up our lives and head off to somewhere completely different. To start again, or at least take a break from our own reality. To get a different [...]

Why everyone needs a joint 60th

I’ve always been a firm believer in time away from relationships and life as you know it.  In the same way that when I moved to London I needed a weekend in the country every month or I’d explode, in the same way I need time away from Mr K and away from my job.  [...]

Round Eastern Europe By Mistake – Notes from my Diary, 2003

Readers, I have a confession to make.  I was all set to write something profound for this afternoon’s post, and then, when going through my old files on my computer I came across this beauty and thought sod it…profound can wait.  Profound can wait until next week, right?  In the summer of 2003 I had [...]
