Summer in the city

I’ve got so much to write about at the moment that it’s somewhat overwhelming, because when the weather cheers up the way it did last week, there’s literally nothing you can do to keep me in the house! After a weekend celebrating birthdays I thought I might have a quiet one, but I accidentally… didn’t. But honestly – HOW nice has it been, just to walk down the street in a skirt and sandals and not feel even a little bit cold?

30 things on my 30th birthday

I don’t know how, but this week I turned 30. I KNOW. I’m not okay with it either. Luckily, I was super spoilt and it was genuinely one of the best weeks of my life (update on that soon) so I’m kind of okay with it, but I STILL don’t know where my twenties have gone.  



Somehow, both slowly and quickly, the years since I was a teenager have flicked past and now I’m getting to the point where people are going to start giving me those ‘over the hill’ joke birthday cards,  and there’s nothing much I can do about it. And although I don’t particularly dread getting older (it is, as Maurice Chevalier once said, better than the alternative) it does make me think about the last time I changed decades (in my second year of university – I made my friends wear pink for the day and I wore a tiara – yes, really) and what I’ve learnt since then. So here are a few select nuggets of advice that I would tell my former self. 30 things I’ve learnt in 30 years.
