Lunch in Bruton, Somerset – The Londoner By: Rosie I don’t tend to write much about our adventures in Somerset, which is where my parents live. Mostly because our ‘adventures’ tend to be sofa snoozing under a pile of dogs, playing cards beside the fire and stomping through the local countryside. We don’t get out

This post has been requested more than any other of late. So many wonderful women getting in touch to say that their very best friend has just given birth, so what can you give to a new mum that no-one else will think of? That is of course what best friends are for, to love

Gold, Notting Hill – The Londoner By: Rosie The wind has changed and London has been plunged into winter. The Christmas lights have been turned on and every street twinkles with the promise of the festivities to come. Parts of Notting Hill, the good ones, smell of pine trees, hot chocolates and pastries.

I’ve smiled and cried (in equal measure!) more than I think I ever have before! So far this is both the longest and shortest year of

Somewhat ironically my favourite day from our trip to Paxos, wasn’t spent on Paxos. It was spent on the teeny tiny neighbouring island of Antipaxos. A short boat ride away and well worth the trip. You can catch a boat from the port in Gaios (they leave pretty frequently, but if you get there at

Exploring Lakka, Paxos – The Londoner By: Rosie Paxos is not the biggest, nor the smallest Greek isle. It only has a handful of villages, but they’ve been sprinkled so sparingly that just travelling a short distance across the olive covered island feels like visiting somewhere entirely new. Last time I told you all about
