A Year Round Valentine – When the Day Is Over

Now, there's so much to the history of traditional St Valentine's Day - but that's not what I'm here for so if you are then skip forward. I'm not a Valentine's hater by any stretch. But you won't find me in a huff if there's no bouquet of roses waiting for me. For example, this … Continue reading A Year Round Valentine – When the Day Is Over

Why a long haul flight was my first

As you've noticed it's been EXTREMELY quiet on the blog front! In the past two months I married my best friend and we bought our first home together.

Where to start?

Just like it says on the tin. Where to start? My name is Rachel, I’m engaged (just under 4 months to go - EEK!) and have the best family and friends around. You would think being an English Language graduate I’d have plenty to say and many ways in which to say it. Leave me … Continue reading Where to start?
