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…

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…

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…

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…

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…

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…

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…

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…

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…

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…

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…

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…

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…

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…

April 2017 – Monthly Round Up

Hello May! It’s my favourite month of the year – firstly because the weather is always that bit nicer (summer is on its way folks!) and secondly because it’s my birthday in the middle of the month. Yep even though I’ll be 34, I still get excited about my birthday,…

March 2017 – Monthly Round Up

How can it be April already, it only seems two minutes since it was Christmas. I’m not complaining though as we have recently seen the sun, something we haven’t seen in a VERY long time. We love Spring, it means longer days and light(er) nights which gives us more hours of…

February 2017 – Monthly Round Up

Even though February is the shortest month of the year, it felt sooo long. I’ll be honest between working, visiting my nana who is currently in rehab following a stroke late last year and renovating our house, there hasn’t really been a spare minute. As always though the blog has…
