Christmas is coming – whoop! And now it is officially December, we can get can truly get into the festive spirit. We are ready for Christmas jumpers, cosy walks, great food, a lot of booze, exchanging gifts and most importantly – spending time with friends and family.

October 2018 – Monthly Round Up

October was hectic – fact! In fact, I don’t think our feet have touched the ground this month. Between loads of lovely travel and house renovations, it’s been a busy one and I’ll be honest, I have not had the opportunity to write as much as I would have liked this month. This will be rectified over the coming weeks and months, I promise. The…

September 2018 – Monthly Round Up

The heating is on, X Factor has started and the nights are getting darker. That can only mean one thing – winter is coming. The last three months of the year are going to be tough as we have no winter sun trips planned. However, we can’t complain too much as our summer was jam-packed of sunny adventures. How was your September? Ours was pretty…

August 2018 – Monthly Round Up

Happy September! We are hurtling into Autumn and do you know what? We’re ok with that. After an amazing summer, the thought of cosiness is really appealing. You know what I mean – nights in with hot chocolate, binge watching a box set with ALL the candles lit, perfect. We say that now, but once it becomes too cold, we’ll be scouring Skyscanner for flights…

July 2018 – Monthly Round Up

So now the World Cup and Love Island are over and the sun here in England appears to have gone missing, is summer officially over? Let’s hope not as we have no plans to escape this month. We need the month to recuperate after a jam-packed July. It was that busy, it seems to have flown by in a blur. I think the main reason…

June 2018 – Monthly Round Up

I really don’t want to tempt fate but wowzers how lovely has the weather been in England during June? Is 2018 the year we finally have a summer? It sure looks like it. We love summer, the sun really rejuvenates us and encourages us to get out and about and explore our local area a lot more too, let’s hope it continues for another couple…

May 2018 – Monthly Round Up

Seriously, where has the first half of the year gone? How can it be June already? In fact, where has the past year gone? I can’t believe that this time last year it was the first day of our month-long Californian road trip, it feels like yesterday. It also means that I am another year older – yep, during May I celebrated my 35th birthday…

April 2018 – Monthly Round Up

Well hasn’t April being the strangest of months from snow to a heatwave and everything in between. Jumpers one day, vests the next, deciding what to wear on a daily basis has been a struggle. But with that being said it has actually been nice to see the sun and fingers crossed we are in for a great sunny summer here in England. April has…

March 2018 – Monthly Round Up

How is it April already? Seriously, this year is flying by. With big works going on at ESLT HQ during April, it is going to be a month of blogging as much as possible, when possible, especially towards the end of the month. March, on the other hand, was a blogging frenzy and we published a number of posts – why not check them out if…

February 2018 – Monthly Round Up

Why, hello March, you came round quickly didn’t you? Even though spring should just be round the corner it actually feels like we are in the depths of Winter as the Beast from the East has the UK in its grasp. Up in Yorkshire, where we live, we have been hit, however nowhere near as bad as other parts of the country. Fingers cross the…

January 2018 – Monthly Round Up

Finally, it’s February! Seriously how long was January? Even though we were busy it seemed to drag on so much. Going back to work after the long Christmas break was very difficult, especially for Mr ESLT who’d had nearly a month off. Needless to say, we both soon got back into the swing of things and it actually felt like we’d had no time off…
