Welcome to Sunshine and Stories. My name is Nicole and I live in East Sussex with my husband Andy and our two daughters. I studied languages and European Studies at University before, like most people, ending up in a job completely unrelated to my degree! I attempted various temp jobs and even tried working with children (harder than it looks!) before studying Health and Social care whilst working in Adult Mental health services. I am currently at home full-time looking after my two girls and spend my days in that pre-school, toddler haze of busy days and chronic forgetfulness!

I often yearn for a slower pace.More space and time for creativity and reflecting amongst the demands of every day life, so this blog is pretty much about that. Creating space, reflecting and hopefully inspiring creativity.


“Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined” Henry David Thoreau



*My Family – family time, date nights, watching in amazement at the little people we created grow into bigger people!


*Friends – life is definitely better shared

*Running – It makes me happy…most of the time!

*Reading – I love sharing, reading and talking about books. I love the way you can disappear in a good story and see life through others eyes.

*Holidays – My mothers family originate from Mauritius, sunshine and warmth is in my blood! I love travel and adventures and sunshine makes pretty much everything better!
