Weekly Highlights!

    Well the weeks are just flying by and they’re getting busier and busier! It’s slightly unsettling that I am seeing more and more people putting their Christmas trees up already..it’s November you loonies! Our tree will not be up until at least the 2nd week of December. I always tend to start these

Christmas Events

  (I have not received compensation for this post) Are you well and truly getting in to the Christmas spirit? Do you already have your tree up? (Are you mad?) Are there chestnuts already roasting on your open fire? If you’re still feeling like a bit of a Scrooge and you just can’t quite find

“What’s your USP?”…

  In my very early days of serious blogging I was chatting to a lady about my blog and she asked to see it. I gave her my site address and she had a quick look. She asked me, “What’s your USP?” USP wasn’t a term I was familiar with so I drew a blank.

Thrill Seekers

    Sky diving, mountain climbing, base jumping. We are a planet of thrill seekers. Crazy, mad, thrill seeking, talking monkeys.

Make it a good dash

    The Dash – Written by Linda Ellis     I recently came across this poem by Linda Ellis and it made me think. It made me think about how my life will be remembered, how it will be represented or how anyone’s life is represented and remembered. On your gravestone it will read:

Prince of Wales Park

Alongside some garages near our house there is a public footpath which leads you up on to Gilstead Moor. We first discovered this trail when we moved here nearly two years ago. It’s a short walk to a beautiful view of Bingley and beyond. You can see all across the top of St.Ives and all
