Welcome to my website – thanks for dropping by!

I started putting together my digital scrapbook in 2015 to preserve and share memories of things I enjoy about life in London and featuring some of my favourite places to go, stay, see and eat from here & beyond.

Since 2003 I’ve lived at Angel Islington by the Regents Canal in what surely has to be London’s smallest dwelling with my partner, Ian.  We both have hectic work schedules and although love the culture, diversity and excitement that the capital has to offer, enjoy spending time in rural France where for the last 6 years we’ve been renovating an ancient farm cottage.


Food plays an important part in our lives; we share a passion for restaurants and as amateur cooks trying out new recipes and filling the store-cupboards with homemade pickles, relishes and chutneys.

I had thought of myself as fairly well travelled until I looked at my WorldMap and only then did I realise how little I knew of the world; so many fascinating places to explore and cultures to discover.  Next country on my wishlist is India and for a quick taste of city culture St Petersburg…
