Bush-Craft Survival Day (aka Zombie prep)

    As part of my new “get yourself out there and do stuff” attitude, I booked myself on to a Bush-Craft Survival course with Yorkshire Dales Bush-Craft. This one in particular took place in Skipton Woods, which, to be honest, is an incredible place to have a wander around in just for the sake

My solo travels – First stop…York

I enjoy time on my own, I can do as I please, I can eat where I like, I can go where I like and it’s just peaceful and fun. I have also noticed that people are so much nicer to me when I’m alone, as thought they feel sorry for me…which is kind of

Will I ever learn?

  I’ve bloody gone and done it again… I promise myself all the time that I will not take on too much. I know that eventually it all catches up to me, I panic and then decide I’m rubbish and nothing gets done. I had a moment earlier today where I very nearly broke down

Love is unconditional…

…relationships are not.   I would definitely not consider myself to be a conformist; Abide by the rules? Yes. Conformist? Never. I was never the girl who fantasised about getting married. I didn’t plan my kids names and I certainly didn’t dream about a ‘Knight in shining armour’ coming to sweep me off my feet.

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
