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

My A-Z of stuff.

  I don’t really know where this post is going…I just thought an A-Z of myself would be fun. A is for anxiety and not letting it consume me. B is for the unread books that gather dust upon my shelves C is for my new edition, the adorable kittus cattus. D is for ducks

My top 10 albums

  In no particular order…   I thought I would give this a go. I’ve never been a big album listener. I know some people get all orgasmic over albums and they’re all like, “You’ve NEVER heard [insert big name group album title here] by [big name group]. Wow, you’ve never lived mate”. F**k off

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

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,

Paranormal Investigation – Hames House

    If you’ve ever been to my Dad’s house you’ve probably been regaled with the story of Mr. Ackroyd. Mr Ackroyd and his wife lived at Kirkfield before we moved there in 1983. Mr Ackroyd passed away sometime around 1980, we think, apparently he had a heart attack in the front garden of the
