Mother’s Day gift idea…or just for yourself because why not…

    Buttermilk is a family run business based in Cornwall. Their traditional, artisan confectionery is a well known favourite and has been in demand since their first shop opened in 1964. It’s quite amazing to learn that these tasty treats are handmade, which surely adds to the quintessential uniqueness of this delicious fudge. Buttermilk

Interview with the artist..(they’re like vampires right?)

Art by PMW     Paul is very much the Benedict Cumberbatch of the art world. Not conventionally good looking but there’s something strangely alluring about him… I stumbled across Paul completely by accident about a year ago. He made a hilarious comment in regards to something that Radio 2 had posted and I thought,

No longer a glamping virgin!

      What better way to spend a couple of freezing cold January nights than in a glamping pod up in The Lakes… Hayley and I were glamping pod virgins before our visit to The Quiet Site but the experience did not disappoint, in fact we can’t wait to go back! We arrived early

Our Railway Children Walk

“Daddy, my daddy!” If you’ve seen The Railway Children then those words are likely to have you sobbing your heart out and if they don’t then you’re probably dead in side. I’ve definitely watched the film more times as an adults and certainly appreciate it more now too. My sons Grandparents live in Oakworth and

What makes you, you?

      Earlier this week I attended the funeral of a lady whom I had never met. I was there to accompany my Mum, I don’t just randomly turn up at strangers funerals. I must admit I was rather perturbed by the prospect of sharing this personal experience with people who before that day,

Just for the sake of it.

I have around ten thousand thoughts an hour. Well it’s probably way more than that…actually I’m going to Google that right now. Okay, so the average person has around 2,000 – 3,000 thoughts per hour. With that in mind I definitely believe that my prediction of 10,000 thoughts an hour for myself is true. I

“Do you have a plan?”

“I don’t even have a pla…”     I love making plans! In fact I love the planning more than the doing. I get excited about all of these wonderful things I’m going to do, then my anxiety kicks in and I freak out. Well it can sod off. I’m busy this year and anxiety

Ahhh January, where dreams are made and ultimately destroyed.

The title has nothing to do with what I’m saying here, I just liked that title.       I made a decision in November that January would be a month of rest for me. I’ve been very stressed, tired and rushed off my feet. I knew December would be a busy one, when isn’t

“Today is the first day…blah blah blah”

  “Seize the day” “What have you done today to make you feel proud?” I’m certain I’ve said these things before or at least very similar. I’m just being consistent and making sure I get my point across… 😉 or just being mildly irritating, take your pick. I just want to make you aware that
