We moved (back) to Cambridge!


Since relaunching this blog as Polly and Pip, I wanted to write an update on where we now live. I lived in Brighton for 6 years and we moved back to Cambridge last year, a town I missed so much! Brighton has the sea, the lanes and all the attractions I used to write about on my blog but it’s also very busy, urban, overpriced and for me, never felt like home. We moved back to Cambridge last year and it’s one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. We are so happy living in this beautiful green town again! 

When people ask why I love Cambridge so much, these are the things I mention. I love the many open green spaces and parks in the city and the picturesque river running through the centre. I love the cosy little pubs dotted around town. In some areas there is a pub on every road, amongst the pretty Victorian terrace houses. I love the diversity of the city with people from around the world living here. I like the expansion of the city that’s taken place in the last few years and the excitement of seeing a lot of growth and development in new train stations, roads and public transport links. New companies and businesses have moved here and there are many diverse and unique job opportunities. The stunning university buildings and colleges dominate the centre and are filled with so much amazing and unique history. I love that Cambridge is relatively flat and a wonderful town for cycling around! Pip and I cycle to school most days. We are also close to many beautiful parks, as well as the pretty countryside. Home is where the heart is and my heart is in Cambridge. 

I will write a blog on the top things to do in Cambridge (post-lockdown) but for now will sign off. 
What do you like about where you live? I’d love to hear your thoughts.

A return to blogging with a new blog name: Polly & Pip!


Hello, I’m back with a new blog name! I chose Polly and Pip because my name is Polly and Pip is the blogging name I have used for my son for the past few years so it makes sense and hopefully is quite a catchy title. I started blogging back in 2014 and it was nice to use Our Seaside Baby for the years we lived in Brighton but now Pip is no longer a baby (he’s a big 7 year old) and we no longer live by the seaside, the blog has been in need of a domain/name change for some time! 

It’s been over a year since I last wrote a post back in July 2019, hasn’t time flown by! I didn’t mean to have such a long blogging hiatus but as they say life got in the way. It has been lovely living life without the pressure of writing blog posts and updating social media. Saying that though, I have missed being part of the blogging community and am looking forward to writing blogs again. A lot has happened in the past year including moving back to beautiful Cambridge and I'll be writing more about we have been up to in future posts.

I’ve updated my About and Work with Me pages and all social media usernames and am looking forward to catching up on all the blogs I used to read. If you’re an old or new reader please comment below with any blog recommendations and/or tell me what you’ve been up to! Looking forward to reconnecting 😊
