So I’m very aware that I’ve been radio silent for the last couple of months but it’s been a super busy time and a bit of a struggle to balance everything as well as finding the time to write. However, I have been working on some exciting projects and this is the perfect time to share one of them with you.
I’ve never been the biggest sports fan but more recently I’ve started to get into it, I mean with an extensive summer sports program it’s kind of hard to ignore! I’ve always said I would enjoy watching sports much more if I saw it live and that’s 100% accurate. I’ve seen a couple of rugby games but that was about all, until Sunday. When it was announced that tickets were going on sale for middle Sunday, my housemate and I jumped at the chance to get hold of some. It’s only the 4th middle Sunday to be played in the 130 year history! I knew it would be a special day out and a chance to find a new found love in tennis (our hobby of choice this summer but we haven’t played once).
The thing I love about travelling is that you get to meet so many people that you wouldn’t necessarily cross paths with in your day-to-day life.

So I think it’s fitting to begin this post by telling you I absolutely LOVE wine. But who doesn’t? I remember trying it as a child thinking there’s no way I would warm to it, but as my parents told me (and I’m sure every adult you spoke to did), “one day you will”. I’m much more of a white wine drinker than red wine although my palette is starting to adjust to enjoy both thankfully, it seems to be a crime to drink white with a juicy (medium-rare) steak.
So what is wine tasting weekends all about you may ask? Exactly what it says on the tin – minus the weekend as it was actually only about 2 hours. On the tube to work the other day I was immersed in the latest copy of time out, I think it’s great for finding random places to visit or things to do. And right enough I found a free wine tasting event with SA Wines. Free?! Surely it can’t be free. But it was. Perfect. I booked myself and my housemates in and it was as easy as that, just turn up at 3pm in South Wimbledon. I’ve always wanted to do a wine tasting session so this was a great excuse.
