January 2018 in pictures

Well what a bloody long month that was! I thought it was never going to end. Have to admit that I’m glad to see the back of it, but there were some great highlights for me and here they are (in no particular order).

I recycled 50% of my wardrobe..

Wonderful Shelly Kelly read my Red Shoes post and kindly offered to come over and help me organise my wardrobe (I will be filling you in on how it went after her second visit).

We discovered North Africa in Exeter

Hubby and I finally made it to Al Farid and got a real taste of Morocco in Exeter (tagine to die for – not literally)

Hanging out with the ‘Men in Sheds’

I wrote a piece on Age UK Exeter’s brilliant ‘Men in sheds‘ project for Devon Life.

Mindfulness at Wagamama

I dined out at Wagamama checking out their menu and heard all about their work with Mind Exeter (read more here).

Super Big Issue vendor Andy 

I’m writing a piece for Exeter Life about him so keep your eyes peeled!

Brekkie at Brody’s

All you can eat brekkie anyone? Have to admit, it’s not really my bag (it’s pretty limited as a veggie) but I can totally see the mass appeal (especially with students). If Brody’s existed when I was at Uni I would have been there for every hangover without a doubt!

Me and my girl went to RAMM

It’s our favourite place to while away a few hours and on this trip Pea and I paid special attention to the glorious butterflies.

A day out in Sidmouth

Me and the Mister took some time out together to chill, we explored Sidmouth and I tried on a beautiful antique £30,000 diamond necklace (hint hint hubby).

Lunch with a friend

Lovely Anne Richardson, nutritionist extraordinaire, invited me for lunch and it was LUSH.

I started studying again

I am a dedicated lifelong learner and I’ve heard lots of positive stories about Digital Mums so when I got an email inviting me on a pilot I jumped at it. I’ll fill you in later down the line but I’m learning a lot and really enjoying it so far.

I discovered another of Exeter’s mosaic works of art

I found this little gem on my commute to work in St Thomas. Proof that we should always try different routes through life because you never know what you’ll find.

This happened!

I’m one of Grow Exeter Magazine’s 100 most influential women in Exeter! Chuffed, amazed and very thankful.

Happy February!
