So, do I Like it Here?

As a Brit transplant to America’s smallest state; one of the most frequent questions I’m asked is, ‘Do you like living in Rhode Island?’ The short answer is yes. Yes, I do. But – and there is a but – I feel like I’m straddling two countries. Two countries that I love. To some recipients…

2018 – Wat-er Start

Happy 2018! How has the start of your year been? If you’re a regular reader of this blog or my lovefromri Instagram page, you might have some idea that it’s not been the smoothest beginning to the year for me. So, here’s what happened – in all its water-logged glory. There we were – Greg,…
