5 Reasons to visit Kenya, Africa

I love travelling. Finding the perfect destination and accommodation. Preparing and packing. The excitement and anticipation of travelling to the airport. Landing at your destination with the prospect of new places to discover and explore. Moments to treasure and memories to be made.

At The Park

How is it Friday already?! Now that work is back in full swing the weeks are merging into one and I don’t really know whether I’m coming or going! I’m now working on a Wednesday, Thursday and a Friday which I think makes it feel like the weeks are going quicker. I get that Friday feeling too, which I didn’t get before. Weird.

Here are some of our current favourite bedtime reads…

This week has been yet another manic week. I’m so, so lucky to work part time but I’m really feeling the strain of work at the moment. I feel like I’m being pulled in so many directions – hence this post being written and published so late.

I’m hoping that once I’ve got into a routine with work and know my lessons and students things will become a little easier (she says weeping over her pile of marking!).

So, here’s what we’ve been up to this past week…
