Yesterday we had family friends over to see the new digs and, thankfully, the weather held out long enough to have a BBQ and sit outside for a bit. Today is the first Sunday we have had free for a while so I took the opportunity to do food prep for the week. I’m in the middle of The Body Coach‘s 90 Day Shift, Shape, Sustain (SSS) [...]

Lahndahn, baby!

Lahndahn, baby!
If you read the previous post then you know last week was my 10th wedding anniversary and I have the best husband (and friends) in the world. After the madness that was last week and the whole present situation (which I’m still shocked by, for real though) we spent the weekend in London, just the two of us (sorry I couldn’t help m [...]

5, 10, 15…
This week marked 15 years since I met Mr Oceanchica (Oceanchico? ) 15 years! That’s a couple of years short of half my whole life… This week also marked our 10 year wedding anniversary. I am pretty darn happy and feel really blessed to be with someone I share everything with and who never makes me feel alone and unwanted or unlo [...]

Well Well Well

Well Well Well
It’s been a bit of a summer and I’ve been a bad blogger! In my defence it’s been a bit busy and somewhat hectic. Since the Walking Out of Darkness event in April I’ve been to Be:Fit London (which was amazing), had an uber meltdown at work, went on an emergency holiday for a week in Majora (which was also amazing), had [...]

CLASP – Walking Out of Darkness

CLASP – Walking Out of Darkness
I’m going to Walk Out of Darkness on 16th May 2015 in memory of Karla Mihok. If you’d like to donate and sponsor me (and the hubby, who is joining!) please click here. I’ve been wanting to write this since it happened, but it’s been difficult for me to pull my thoughts together until now, even nine months later it̵ [...]

Blinds, beds, and books, oh my!

Blinds, beds, and books, oh my!
Friday marked 4 weeks in the new abode! It went quick didn’t it? Today marks the day we get the last of the big stuff done – blinds fitted and our new bed delivered! It’s weird how much a lack of blinds or any window treatments can affect how settled you feel. I’m already feeling better about things now that there are [...]

Error: Motivation not found
Moving is stressful, I know this. I didn’t expect this time to be quite as stressful as it has been, though. It’s been almost as bad as my move from the US to the UK. The differences are marginal at best. The last one, into our rental, was easy peasy. I guess I expected the same this time around. My body is only just recovering fr [...]

10 years on…

10 years on…
Today marks 10 years since I left the US to live in the UK. A whole decade. Just under a third of my life. Incredible. I’ve been thinking about it a lot, what the last 10 years has been for me, and I’m still undecided. The problem is that it’s been so many things. I was 25 when I left everything I’d known and was comf [...]
