We spent this weekend in London, cramming lots of exciting things into a couple of days. As well as seeing friends our main focus of our trip was a visit to a concert at The Festival Hall. As big fans of Neil Hannon this show caught our attention a while ago and we managed to [...]
We’re in complete denial we have to give something back we borrowed over the winter. Thinking about not having this space anymore makes us really sad. Living in a garden-less flat over the winter months sucks. It’s too cold to sit outside in a park or on the beach for any length of time and [...]
For a long time we’ve needed some inspiration for things to do on our days off that doesn’t involve us splashing too much cash, going to the same old haunts time and time again and doing the same things (brunch, cake and coffee come up way too often).
