Life Update & Autumn Travel Snaps


Um, GUYS! It’s been a while since I checked in, because life has been changing so quickly I’ve barely had time to consider my little place online – but I’ve been checking in and I can see that there’s a whole bunch of you still checking back for new content – so here it is!

Let’s ease back into it with a little life update & some snaps from our recent trip to Valencia where we visited both mine & Mr K’s parents.

For those of you following on Insta, you’ll know that Brian is doing great – I crafted him a little tee-pee from some wooden dowels and an old curtain and he loves it.

That mini project marked the beginning of my Autumn artistic streak – does anyone else out there feel a surge of inspiration as a new season launches? Autumn is always that time for me, and since then I’ve worked on some wall art, metallic upcycled vases and some festive projects – and I’ll share a little bit of all of them soon. For a few easy starter projects though, I’ve really loved this kit and this kit.


Food-wise, I’ve developed an amazing Toffee Apple Cheesecake recipe and a couple of savoury delights like Gruyere Mushrooms, Vegan Cauliflower Soup & Smoky Seafood Stew. Flipping yummy & all very seasonally relevant. Recipes on their way!

Work-wise, I’m approaching a transition – my business area is under consultation so I’m (probably) facing redundancy in the next few months, so I’m doing a lot of personal reflection on who I am and who I want to be, professionally. It’s equal parts petrifying and invigorating to be faced with a fresh start.

I’ve been such a rubbish athlete lately – I’ve managed like 1 short run per week if I’m lucky, but I have done a fair share of walking and have been eating OK the past couple of weeks. I must be doing enough, because no winter ailments have befallen me yet, *touch wood*.

And now, because I feel like I’ve missed out on sharing a ton of exciting things I’d normally have blogged about, here’s a little list of stuff I’ve loved since June:

Spending time at farmers markets (I’ve loved Hebden Bridge & Ramsbottom in particular)

Reading The Golem and the Djinni – an excellent and rather dark love story

Watching Grey’s Anatomy for the first time. Late to the party I know, but binging it is making me wonder if I’m team Preston or team Owen. And being a little mad at what they did to George.

I’ve been drinking Vimto like it’s a life support system. Why would anyone drink anything else?

Spending some fully chilled time chuckling at r/thathappened and some truly petrified time reading r/nosleep.

Christmas shopping. Oh my word. My brother is in New Zealand for Christmas so we’re posting his gifts out to him. On the bright side, it has made me get my act together much earlier.

Phew! Ok I think we’re all caught up. What have you guys been up to?
