In the Gathford household we don't always agree on everything. However, there are a few key facts of life that we do reach a consensus on: Jam and butter do not belong in the same sandwich; chasers are the jocks of Hogwarts; Disney's Tarzan is an under-rated gem of a movie; and, most importantly, planning… Continue reading How to Create a Date Jar (and take the stress out of date night)
If you're anything like us, the Christmas season was stressful, food filled and flecked with illness. It's okay though, we've survived and we're on the other side in not only a new year, but a new decade! You may be able to tell that here in the Gathford household we're pretty rubbish when it comes… Continue reading Word of the Year
It's been a long autumn. The last time we posted, Jonathan wrote about what it's like to support someone with a chronic illness. Well, friends, this is what it's like. Sometimes we need to take some time out to focus on living life. But, we're back. Strap in: we're taking you on a whirlwind tour… Continue reading A Long Fall…
There's a certain time of year in the Gathford household that weekends, especially Saturdays, become very sacred. No, it's not because we're religious (although Sundays are a day of rest).

We're continuing along our path to get to know each other more. Living together has resulted in an amalgamation of photos from our past and present, which have inevitably ended up in a box. Recently, we've tried to find ways of displaying them, telling each other the stories behind each photo as they've been pegged… Continue reading Gritter Lorries and Ghost Trains.
10 Things We've Learned The Hard Way (So You Don't Have To) We moved in together a year into our relationship. Jon was starting his last year of University and Hannah was embarking on an MA in Dance Research. The move was a pre-meditated decision; before we were even in a relationship, we had agreed… Continue reading A Beginners Guide to Living Together
Following our first post, we've been thinking a lot about Jon's 'questionable' music taste. We decided the best way to do this was to follow the set up of Radio 4's Desert Island Discs - which involves picking your top eight tracks, a book, and a luxury item to take with you if you found… Continue reading Songs for an Island Full of Tigers
This blog is new... although it was created from an old blog that belonged to Hannah (Bookmarked Ramblings). Hannah's been a blogger for years, Jon not so much. We're a young couple living in the sunniest place in the UK -fact- Bognor Regis, working hard to start a life together. We've realised, as lots of… Continue reading Getting to Know You
