What we took with us …(and what we bought when we got there) I’ve really pondered over whether to do this post, but then in conversations with friends I realised we all pass on tips and share knowledge of great products all the time – and they can be really useful. So take from this what you will and give it a swerve if it’s not your bag (‘scuse the pun). Packing for a family, […]

Wizard of Oz Part 2 – Keeping the kids busy on a budget As I said at the top of the last post, this year’s trip had to be made under a tight budget. This time wasn’t about creating a “trip of a lifetime” more, a trip to spend time with my sister. Who just happens to have settled in Oz. So – none of the big hitters this time. Nobody felt a burning desire […]

The Wizard of Oz If you have read any of the previous posts on here, you’ll know we do love a trip here at Procrastination Project towers. Our posts for Tokyo got some love, so I thought I’d pop this up, should it help anyone in the throws of planning a similar trip themselves, or just to satisfy some wanderlust. This stop, Sydney. To give some context and background, my sister has lived in Manly, […]

As we limp past Christmas, with all its mince pies and general gluttony, towards the final show-down with 2016, we are now heading in to Romjul – the Norwegian word for this bit between Christmas and the new year. This year it’s all been about it’s Danish cousin, Hygge, but Romjul is where it’s really at. Restorative and mindful, it’s all about hunkering down with loved ones, alongside bracing walks and a healthy mindset. I first […]

A Pinch and a Punch… A few days late admittedly, but when the boy child greeted me with his little fist balled up at breakfast on Thursday, I had to practically pinch myself that it was already September. That’s Autumn, right? Where did Summer go? So, this week’s Sunday Best is dedicated to the best ways to see in Autumn (as done by our family). In at number one, is our self-named “sausage walk” – named […]

What’s that saying? From the mouths of babes. Well I asked my youngest daughter to compile her perfect playlist for our upcoming roadtrip. And it’s a cracker. So here’s this weeks’ playlist. By Kitty. Don’t be fooled by her age, there are no boy bands – this is basically reflective of her feisty personality. And is a great, great compilation for breaking up that long old boring trip… Althea & Donna – Uptown Ranking Max […]

Today marks the end of National Marine Week, and coincidentally it’s coincided with my eldest boy child nagging endlessly about watching Jaws. Not entirely linked but when I was explaining why I don’t think he’s old enough yet to watch it, he asked would it put him off surfing. Probably I said.  For a bit.  But that actually the biggest thing he should worry about is the rubbish and crap that’s pumped into our seas […]

Guest post from Mack I am making an addition to theprocrastinationproject today by means of a little travel/ day- out guide to my home city of Brighton in East Sussex. I might add that I have lived in Brighton for two decades now and have grown up in the city so this is real, local knowledge that I am passing on (you lucky things). But really, if you have never been to Brighton or if […]

…Valentines, Whitstable When cupid’s arrow shot Valentine’s into Whitstable High Street, everyone fell for the charm of its owners Karen and Mick who lovingly source all things vintage (without charging rip-off London prices). Now a firm favourite and an important heartbeat of the small fishing town, it’s treasure trove of interesting one-offs, as well as Danish and Swedish vintage buys through to G Plan sideboards and 70s lighting. Quirky prints sit alongside 50s kitsch and […]

Shucks, Whitstable…

If you do one thing this week…head to Whitstable here on the Kent coast this weekend for the start of the annual Oyster Festival. In its 32nd year, the Whitstable Oyster Festival is a revival of what was originally a holy festival dating right back to Norman times. Back then it was to be thankful of both the harvests and their survival at sea. Now, it’s more the survival of the fittest to cram everything […]
