Welcome. This is my office today…jealous?
Well maybe you could do what I did and move down from London to Whitstable and be free of the office, the boss, the stress. Here’s a bit about me…
I’m Conrad Blaine, but you probably know me as C.K.Blaine (oh yeah, I’m the one that won that Bafta, back in the day). For the purposes of this blog, I’m just plain old Conrad. Just here to reflect, share and muse about my perfect little family life by the sea, in Whitstable.
I like to keep things simple. My beautiful wife, Pippa, is in charge (she’ll kill me for saying that!). Second in command is my stunning eldest daughter, Isobel. My immedate line manager is Miranda, age 13. I’m sure, if Pippa allowed us to have pets, I’d probably be lower down the food chain than them too, but it suits me! Lol.
My days are about family, spending time in town with my new, local, friends, writing (naturally), the beach – rain or shine and keeping it real. It’s all about living in the moment, relishing every second of life free of the city – the sea, the light, the wonderful sense of belonging – now I’ve become a fully integrated, valued member of the community here.
So, if you are thinking about making a break from the stress of life in London, taking it down a few gears and heading coastward, this is the blog to follow. I’ll be featuring the best places to eat, drink, be seen and chill as well as the landmarks, beauty spots and annual events. Come and join me – Down By the Sea.
