Mid Year Round Up

Wow, can you believe we’re already half way through the year?!

It doesn’t seem that long ago that we were wrapping up presents ready for Christmas, being social butterflies at all the December gatherings and then all vowing to be slimmer, healthier, stronger etc etc in January.

It’s been a whirlwind 6 months so far.


We’ve been extremely lucky to go to St Lucia at the start of year and then spend 6 weeks in Spain in April / May.

We also took a short break to Cornwall for a few days in May – the weather was terrible but the hotel was amazing!


We’ve set up our new Boatman Admin Services business which can help with all the admin needs of small businesses.

We can also offer Will Writing and Estate Planning services which everyone should think about – it ain’t just for the oldies!

I also wrote about the trials and tribulations of working from home.

Food & Drink

We’ve done our fair share of eating out these last 6 months as well – it’s a blumming good job I drag myself to spinning and body conditioning a few times a week!

My little blog continues to grow from strength to strength every week and I’m really pleased to see that all the hard work I’ve been putting in is slowly paying off.  I’ve had my first few bits of blogger mail – it’s quite exciting!

I’m also now working with Gin Explorer and their blog – I get to try an abundance of gin every month which can’t be bad!

I also took part in the Blog Every Day in May challenge which was TOUGH!  I missed a few days but it really made me think about what I’m blogging and the photos I need to take.

The next 6 months

We’ve still got a lot to look forward to for the rest of the year – we’re going to Rome, we’re seeing Beyonce, I’m going to my first blogger event, and the summer holidays coming up so will be thinking about things to do with Olivia plus we’ll be celebrating 3 years of married “bliss”.

The only negative is the lack of summer we’re currently experiencing!!
