Lately I’ve been in a bit of a ‘book lull’ and despite my inner bookworm being desperate to get stuck into a juicy new book I just couldn’t be bothered to start a new one. On a whim one day I picked up The Fear and thanks to this book I’m officially back in the game and flying through paperbacks like there’s no tomorrow.
I’ve spoken before about how much I love buying presents for people. There’s always one occasion that stumps me though: Fathers Day. Perhaps this is a case for all Dad’s but my Pops is notoriously hard to buy for. It’s a classic case that he deserves the world (or he’d probably prefer his own golf course) but as it stands, ya gal can’t quite stretch to that. With just under a month to go until the big day I’m getting in early this year and planning ahead. In case you’re like me and often find yourself struggling at the last minute, here are some gift ideas that are sure to bring a smile to your old man’s face.
Until last year Alma de Cuba wasn’t even on my radar, mainly because it’s located on Seel Street and 99% of the time when I’m there I’m bleary eyed and making a beeline for Peacock at 1am. Last Valentine’s Day though my oh so romantic other half booked us a table there and a whole new love affair began. We recently headed back to sample their new summer menu and I can confirm our budding relationship is still going strong.
Before you get stuck into this post there’s something you should know about me. For years I have dubbed myself a lover of winter and hater of summer. Being pale and ever so slightly ginger means that me and heat just don’t go well together. Give me a cosy blanket in autumn any day. This year though a change has occurred. Whilst I’m still an autumn/winter fangirl I’ve been itching for summer. My evenings have been spent pining for a beer garden and my sunglasses have been sat ready to go. Who knows why, maybe I’ve had too many Kopparberg’s, but I am so ready for some sunshine.

Finding the perfect gift for a loved one is in fact a task I find thoroughly enjoyable. I know a lot of people dread having to hunt down a birthday present, these are also the same people who stick to the humble gift voucher every year, but not me. I thrive on it. The main reason is because I love seeing the look on someone’s face when I get them a gift that is just so ‘them.’ If you tend to veer towards present disasters, then these fail safe tips will ensure people remember your gift long after the big day.
I’ve always been weirdly fascinated by twins and spent my childhood wishing I had an identical twin sister as a sidekick. After reading Guilt though I can’t help but feel glad to be an only child…
I have always been a gal with a plan. I pride myself on my organisation and planning skills and be it a holiday, a birthday or my whole blummin’ life; I will ALWAYS have a plan. I live my life knowing exactly what I’m doing every day of the week, right down to what day I’m doing my laundry and when I’ve set aside time to binge-watch Dynasty on Netflix. It’s structured and meticulous and that’s just the way I like it. Lately though, I’ve started to realise maybe it’s time some of my best made plans were ripped to shreds.
