We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children.

What’s In A Vessel?

{New Blog Post} What’s In A Vessel?

I have had the opportunity to work on a few different platforms during my brief time as a marine biologist and all of them have their ups and downs; with some I favour over others. In this post I thought I would go into a little detail on the pros and cons of different vessel sizes.

My Conservation Careers Interview

{New Blog Post} My Conservation Careers Interview

Back in December 2013 I as approached my Nick Askew of Conservation Careers website. He asked if I would be willing to share my conservation career story for his growing career information website. Of course, I agreed as I am happy to get my story out there and hope it helps other who are starting out in this field or who think it may be the one for them.

I dream/wish for someone who I can passionately talk about food. To never get bored or too full to talk about food. To be as elated as I am every time we spend time in the kitchen preparing and cooking meals… even share my own happiness, trivial as it may seem, for fresh produce, fresh fish, freshly baked and crusty bread, the most luscious butter and fine cheeses, good aged wines or even just a brilliantly brewed beer, and lovely fresh herbs to put into our meals together or for our own family. To enjoy a meal which we both collaborated on and eat it in a most relaxed and casual way at our dinner table, and make a silly toast with our wine glasses and say, “Here’s to us damn awesome cooks/lovers!”.

My shiny first car! I passed my driving test yesterday (first time *jumps about*). This means I will now be mobile when I start uni in October and not be dependent on a weekly minibus trip to go food shopping and will hopefully build up the determination to go swimming. I need to exercise!

I was so nervous yesterday but, thankfully all the practice payed off and I managed to just about hold it together.

She is a Fiat 500 which, what I wanted as they have very low carbon emissions and a high safety rating.

I went for my first independent drive this afternoon and it was only a little bit scary not having anyone there telling me where to go and what to do!

I still need to name her. I am think “Glorious” due to my recent watching of Glorious 39 on the BBC where they called the girl “Glorious” as a nickname or possibly “Glorious Gloria” but we shall see.
