November 2018 – Monthly Round Up

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. We also have a fair amount of travel planned, but more about that later. So, November – how was yours? Ours was pretty good…

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 weather has certainly let us…

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 lovely and flew by in…

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 to hotter climes instantly. Anyway,…

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 for that is because we…

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 of months. June was a…

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 (urgh!) and even though my…

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 also been a strange one…

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 you haven’t already. I think…

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 beast will blow by soon…

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 at all (grrr). The weather…

December 2017 – Monthly Round Up

Happy New Year!!! How is it 2018 already? I remember drinking and dancing my way into the 2000’s (albeit underage, but still….). Yet here we are a new chapter in the book of life and we can’t wait to start filling it with great things. We hope you had the best Christmas (if you celebrate of course) and are ready for the adventures 2018 is going to throw your way?…

November 2017 – Monthly Round Up

Happy December folks, it’s officially the month of Christmas which for us means eating (and drinking) to excess, loads of parties, novelty jumpers, presents, cosy nights and decorating the tree and we cannot wait. We are not ones for celebrating Christmas in November as we know many are, each to their own folks, each to their own. Instead, November saw us embracing the late autumn/early winter weather and enjoying travel…

October 2017 – Monthly Round Up

Dark mornings and dark nights…booo! Yep the clocks have gone back here in blighty and we now have to make the most of the few hours of sunlight we get each day. The cold weather has also hit us full force meaning boots and jumpers are now wardrobe staples. October passed by in a blur because we were super busy and we are certainly not complaining. Three weekends out of…

September 2017 – Monthly Round Up

Well it’s officially autumn and we’ve put the heating on, yep that lovely late summer that we had our fingers crossed for did not materialise and instead the big coats and umbrella have been dug out. I know a lot of people romanticise about autumn, not us I’m afraid and the sooner we escape to Abu Dhabi at the end of November the better. BRING ON THE SUN. So what…

August 2017 – Monthly Round Up

Autumn is coming! And we don’t know if we are happy about that, to be honest. We love the summer, especially the sunshine, so the fact that we will soon be waving goodbye to light nights and beer garden weather is quite depressing. But you never know we have had pleasant September in England before, maybe we are in for a nice surprise this year too (fingers crossed). Anyway back to…

July 2017 – Monthly Round Up

Hello, August! Seriously, where did July go? Considering we have not left the county it has flown by. The weather here has been iffy, to say the least. It seems to be glorious sunshine whilst I’m in the office and chucking it down at the weekends – NOT FAIR. We hope you have had a great July, have you had your summer holiday yet? We’d love to hear from you…

June 2017 – Monthly Round Up

Did you have a great June? Have you been on your summer holiday yet? We had the best June, in fact I could not have had a better one as we jetted off on the 1st June to the West Coast of America for most of the month. We had a lot of adventure and a lot of (too much) food. Whilst we were away, England basked in a heat…

May 2017 – Monthly Round Up

Happy Summer! Yes, the sun has finally graced us with his presence here in Blightly and with temperatures in the mid to high 20s recently we have been enjoying spending time outside. This month has also involved life changing events for Britain and beyond and I think it would be remise of me not to mention the recent horrific terrorist attack in Manchester. I followed along, feeling truly helpless as…
