My February has been so boring. I’ve mainly been driving from outlet to outlet trying to find the perfect shoes which I’m fairly certain don’t exist, but that’s really it. I guess I had enough fun in January to last me two months, which is good as it means things aren’t so spendy. I’ve probably spent … More We never check the price tag

Husband sleepily asked me how bad it was as I got back under the duvet. I managed to convince him for about 30 seconds that it … More Let me hear your 50 words for snow
Watching the news on our third day in New York continued to terrify us. Good Day New York (our favourite American morning show) must have mentioned the word ‘blizzard’ hundreds of times. Flights were getting cancelled, the public was being advised to stock up on batteries and water, employees were being told to go home from work – it was … More I get the news I need on the weather report.
