In Snapshots and Scenes

Snapshots & Scenes August

Hello September! How quickly has Summer gone? Six weeks gone in a woosh!!

We spent a couple of weeks in Portugal with my family, where we did not much more than do small day trips from Sintra where we were staying into Ericeira, Azenhas do Mar, Praia da Adraga and Guincho. We spent a fair bit in the city too, where my family lives, generally just hanging out with my mum and sister and her family which was bliss. We did have a WHOLE day of chasing Pokémon in Lisbon’s older neighbourhoods too…in August!

Then as soon as we came back (to a mountain of emails!) it was finally time for us to move! Our house buying experience took over 6 months and though we were ready for this day it was so hard to say goodbye to our seaside flat where we spent nearly a decade (!!). Our new house feels huge in comparison, and it’s full of crooks and crannies I’m yet to explore. It needs a fair bit of work so we’re currently all sleeping on a floor mattress in the dining room as we wait for the bedrooms to be plastered, painted and all the floors sanded…Everything else will need to wait for now, but a week and a half in we’re so happy and already feel so at home – even surrounded by boxes and chaos!

So from a very grey and drizzly Brighton, I share this very sunny and summery video of our August – I’m looking forward to sharing Autumn adventures next month, and who knows a bit of our little house may make it there too!


From a photo you’d love to share, to or a short clip or a 60 second video – We would love for you to share your own Snapshots & Scenes on your own blog, or on Instagram using the #SnapshotsandScenes tag!

    Wow it’s been a busy few months for you, hasn’t it? I remember when we first moved and our new house seemed absolutely vast. I hate that the weather has turned so quickly.
