Seeing the States! ?>

Seeing the States!

A few short weeks after the trip to Courchevel, it was the Easter school holidays and we were off to America! I had been looking forward to this trip because I’d never been to the states before and I was going to be staying in Phoenix, Arizona and Las Vegas, Nevada. I was also dying to catch up with a friend living in Vegas whom I hadn’t seen in 4 years. The trip over was another ‘first’ for me, we…

Courchevel, France ?>

Courchevel, France

For the February half term break I was heading to Courchevel Ski Resort in France for a week. It was the first holiday I was going on for work and I was a little nervous, but another family was coming and their nanny was one of my closest friends in London; so even if the week was suuuper stressful at least we’d have each other for moral support. This holiday was a week filled with many firsts, and the most…

My first white Christmas ?>

My first white Christmas

I couldn’t have been more excited about my first white Christmas, and I even managed to get 3 weeks off work so I was able to spend it with friends. I was off to Chamonix, France, for a week with a great group of people. We rented a chalet for the week and planned to spend the days on the slopes, the nights getting drunk and Christmas day eating as much as we could. Our chalet turned out to be amazing…

Coming home 6 months later

6 months after leaving my beloved Australia it was time return… but only for 3 weeks for my best friends wedding! I was so excited to be seeing my beautiful family and friends again and even more excited to be a bridesmaid for my beautiful friend Renee, I knew it was going to be an incredibly gorgeous wedding. I had only been working as a nanny for 2 months but I was already looking forward to the time off. The…

The Nanny Diaries ?>

The Nanny Diaries

After teaching for a term in Essex when I first arrived in the UK in April 2014, I was more than ready to move to London and try something different. I knew that teaching would always be waiting for me when I returned to Australia and I wanted to try something else that would provide opportunities and experiences I wouldn’t otherwise be able to have. That, coupled with my experience with working with children sent me on the path to…

Wrapping up Croatia ?>

Wrapping up Croatia

There is a reason people go to Croatia for a great time, it is the perfect place to party and have fun without being too hectic. We spent nights out at some amazing places, as well as partied on the boat with the wicked people we were lucky enough to spend the week with. Perhaps my favourite night was Gender Bender on the boat, we anchored down, dressed up in clothes for the opposite sex, watched the sunset and partied in…

Croatia – Sun, seas and morning sleeps ?>

Croatia – Sun, seas and morning sleeps

The following days were spent sleeping away the morning, waking up to swims in the ocean and a cider in hand and watching the gorgeous Croatian scenery pass us by as we travelled to a new town each day. I can’t even explain waking up, feeling seedy and exhausted but then walking out onto the deck of the boat to the brilliant sunshine and that clear blue water, it’s an instant hang over cure… or almost anyway. Just about every…

Kicking off Croatia ?>

Kicking off Croatia

Where to begin with my little jaunt to Croatia. Let’s start with what I was expecting. For whatever reason, I’m not sure why, but I envisioned Croatia as being a bit dirty, dingy, dodgy and maybe even a little dangerous. The 4 ‘D’ words you don’t want to have in your mind when you’re heading off to your destination. But I was super excited because Geo and I were doing a sail Croatia week with Fanatics so I knew I’d…

Writer’s block… or just plain lazy? ?>

Writer’s block… or just plain lazy?

Ok. Time to fess up, own up and face the music. I have been downright lazy. These last few weeks have been the longest I have gone without writing anything, not even a single word. Not even a plan of writing or a little spark of inspiration. At first I told myself it was because I was busy but then one week dragged out to two, then 3, then before I knew it a month had passed and still nothing….

Summer is coming to an end ?>

Summer is coming to an end

After Laine flew back to the land of Aus, I had one week of down time until our final Summer adventure – Croatia. I was feeling a bit deflated, from saying goodbye and also realising I was down to my absolute last dollars (and pounds) and the English weather was not helping. It rained every day, the heating came on and I was sleeping in Winter pj’s – how ridiculous! I went to the gym every day to lift my…
