In regular, real-life, you’d never wake up at 7am and head straight to the kitchen to open up a bottle of Pinot Grigio (or perhaps you would … Continue Reading

Woohoo!!! Hand Luggage Only is 2 years old. Okay, fine – it was 2 years old like almost a month ago but we’ve been o the road for the past few week and that, coupled with my love of procrastination, is why I’ve not gotten round to writing this post until now. 🙂 Now I know everyone says this but … Continue Reading

We’re talking, heading straight out to the … Continue Reading

Okay, so this isn’t normally the type of post I write, but I really wanted to share something personal with you. Over the course of the last 18 months, my weight has slowly crept up by 24lb (almost 11kg)! At first I didn’t notice it… then, after a while, I tried to “ignore” it until … Continue Reading
