My bucket list is an enormous and hugely moveable beast. The older I get, the more things I do, the bigger the list gets. This is partly because I keep discovering things that sound like fun, but also because I am all to aware of the limitations of my life and actively search out things

TopDeck Turkey Diary Day 5 | Cappadocia

A continuation of my TopDeck Turkey diary. If you haven’t read the first post in the series yet go and start here.   As you already know, my full day in Cappadocia started incredibly early with a sunrise hot air balloon flight over the unique scenery of Goreme National Park. If you’ve not read my

Country Music

My name is Zoe. I am 34 years old. And I like country music. Sorry. You’ll no doubt assume that this is a sign of my age. Apparently we stop listening to new music when we are 33, so I guess I shall start saying “songs of today don’t have any tune” or the like soon.

Review: The North Face Durango Hoodie

The North Face Durango Hoodie is a this-season soft shell outerwear jacket that offers some warmth and protection from rain, ideal for those in-between days when it’s not cold enough to need a hugely insulated coat but when you do still want to get moving.

Bath Bombs Workshop at Rock+Paper+Scissors

A few weeks ago I spent a rather splendid evening with some girl friends at Rock+Paper+Scissors in Lincoln (I introduced them to you here when they first opened) taking part in one of their many craft workshops.

Rock+Paper+Scissors – A New Crafterie in Lincoln

Last week a new cafe opened in Lincoln. A friend and I went to check it out at the end of the week and I think it’s fair to say we both fell in love with the place. Rock+Paper+Scissors is a “crafterie”, that is, a cafe, a place to do crafts, and a shop. Run

My Moonwalk Bra

With less than a week to go, it was about time I got myself properly organised for the Moonwalk and decorated the all important bra. The whole point of this event is to raise money for Breast Cancer charities after all, and the way we do that is by walking a marathon through London in

Quick Trip to Helsinki

Last week I went to Helsinki, Finland, on business. It was a bit of a whistle stop trip but I did find time to take in a few of the sights and sounds of the city whilst there. Travelling in early December I have to say I was expecting to find it bitterly cold and

Year in Photos (27 Aug to 3 Sep 11) – Ireland by Bike

There will be a proper post about my motorbike trip to Ireland in due course (Ireland on a F650GS or something like that), but in the mean time I thought I’d give you a snap shot by catching up on my Year in Photos entries.  Here… 27/08/11: My roof for the week 28/08/11: BMW F650GS
