We hopped into our small boat, put on our lifejackets and got comfortable […]

I do all my best thinking on planes. I was thinking about everything – life, my business, my home, my […]

Spain’s relatively close proximity to Scotland and the number of cheap flights means that I’ve spent many holidays there. I’ve probably been in Spain about 25 – 30 times so far and feel very lucky for that. Spain is a country I adore. I love the people, the food (oh man, I LOVE the food), the sunshine, the relaxed pace […]
