Rainy day in London

Last Saturday Aaron and I were on the National Express coach on our way to London. Which was his first time in the city! He wasn’t really sure what he wanted to do or see except for “Big Ben”. Massive thanks to Ellie and Lauren for their ideas of what to do in London with a first timer. In true British fashion it tipped it down – putting a dampener on our sightseeing walk plans.

Staycation & birthday celebrations 2017

Ryan and I booked the first week of May off work with the original intention of a road trip through Ireland, but due to the unknown state of our housing situation towards the end of March (you can read more about that in my moving back in with your parents as an adult post) we decided to save the money just in case we needed it for a rental or renewal deposit or for storage rental. We decided to keep Read More…
