Hi! My name is Laura, welcome to my blog!


Back in 2013 I left my job in search of a dream career that led me across the Irish Sea to London.  This blog started out as a means of documenting my many adventures as I tried to adjust to a new life in an unfamiliar place.

I’m not entirely sure what the future holds but it’s a lot of fun finding out.  I hope you’ll join me along the way. Who knows, maybe this is the start of your adventure too?

Thanks for reading and I hope you’ll pop back and say hello again soon. I’ll stick the kettle on and get the good biscuits in.

    Hi Laura! Kirstan introduced us and I’m glad she did! The first thing I loved about your blog is the look…..just like mine! (I love this theme!) The second thing I liked is your “About”….just like mine! (Well, not exactly, but just like you I quit my job last summer and and searching for my new “normal”!) I’ve already checked out some of your nominees for the Sunshine award and are following them now, too! Funny how that works. Looking forward to reading more of your posts in the future!

    Hi Val! Thanks for getting in touch – I love this theme too, particularly because it makes me look more design savvy than I am! Glad to have helped you to discover some of the blogs I love, they are a great bunch of ladies and I hope you get as much out of reading their blogs as I do! I hope life post-retirement is treating you well and look forward to hearing more about your adventures! Take care, Laura xx
