Life Update: Acting, Motherhood, and the Pursuit of Creativity

“Do stuff. Be clenched, curious. Not waiting for inspiration’s shove or society’s kiss on your forehead.”  ― Susan Sontag It’s mid-March. MID-MARCH. I’m not quite sure how I got here. But it seems I did some things – some exciting things – for a while, became very worn out, felt very poorly, then just sort of… Continue reading Life Update: Acting, Motherhood, and the Pursuit of Creativity

Solo Travel: A Messy, Imperfect Adventure in Copenhagen

“I see my path, but I don’t know where it leads. Not knowing where I’m going is what inspires me to travel it.”  – Rosalia de Castro Snow has fallen. Quite a considerable amount of snow has fallen and this has resulted in Maia’s nursery being closed and Grandma not being able to drive to… Continue reading Solo Travel: A Messy, Imperfect Adventure in Copenhagen

Copenhagen: Woodah Hostel

It’s 17:00, Maia is downstairs having pasta with her Grandma. I decided I would either tidy the toys up in her room or post something on this blog of mine. A blog that’s been ever so neglected recently…The toys can wait. Neglected, yes, but for good reason. After a crazy few months, I now find myself… Continue reading Copenhagen: Woodah Hostel

I fell in love with Old Town Square pretty much the minute I arrived there. It was really something special. And by night, the place was even more magical. I remember thinking how I couldn’t wait to return some day, when I was a little more used to solo-travel and didn’t feel as though I might… Continue reading Prague by Night

Prague: Views from St Vitus Cathedral, a touch of Gold and the Steve Jobs Museum

“Stay Hungry. Stay Foolish.” – Steve Jobs (below)  I climbed a lot of steps to get these views. Breaks were taken during the climb. (Up a tower in St Vitus Cathedral, below). I would regard myself as quite a fit young person but after a few hundred steps that feel like they’re getting steeper and steeper, in… Continue reading Prague: Views from St Vitus Cathedral, a touch of Gold and the Steve Jobs Museum

Prague: The Charles Bridge

Firstly, HAPPY NEW YEAR.  Hope 2018 is treating you well. Three days in and mine is looking pretty shiny…and challenging for all the right reasons. I overheard my Dad on the phone to his friend the other day: “I somehow feel more orderly in a year that is an even number and not odd..I never… Continue reading Prague: The Charles Bridge

Prague: Old Town Square

Maia is stood in my room wrapping herself up in wrapping paper. Old wrapping paper, that I’ve said she is allowed to rip up, but that she has discovered far more amusing uses for; a carpet and body wrap to name just a couple. Before 2017 quickly becomes 2018 (WOOOO), I wanted to share a few… Continue reading Prague: Old Town Square
