Our Summer

(and when I say ‘Our Summer’ I mean ‘My Summer’ because we all know that if Chris and Christopher were left to sort it we would be doing nothing… or maybe we’d be playing Fortnite, eating cheese and drinking tea…)   Last year I was rubbish with the Summer planning, I thought we could wing

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

“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.

Just one day at a time.

I will promote the importance of understanding mental health issues until it is no longer a taboo subject. I will happily stand up in front of people and tell them how I once found it so difficult to leave the house that my Dad had to literally pick me up and carry me in to

The one where you just can’t believe it…

  Friends is in the top 10 of my all time favourite programmes, I was at one time, completely obsessed. There are times when I think back to some of the episodes and cannot understand why they did what they did though. At the time of watching I was completely naive, I didn’t really know

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

More Summer adventures: Caving and ice-cream

        On Thursday we took a trip to the longest show cave in Britain, White Scar Cave. The tour lasts about 80 minutes and shows you some incredible sights, from stalactites and stalagmites that are over 100,000 years old to a cavern that is one of the largest in Britain. White Scar

The Lakes: Day Two

  Check out Day One┬áhere. We woke early the next day for our buffet style breakfast in the main hostel building. With our bellies full we packed up the car and headed down to Bowness-on-Windermere to have a go at a scavenger hunt. (I downloaded it from a website, unfortunately it wasn’t the best scavenger

Are you socially acceptable?

Who decided what was socially acceptable and what wasn’t? My friends, Hayley, Gayle and I were having a meal earlier this week and as usual we were busy doing a bit of people watching. It’s always fun to look at other diners and try to decide what their back story is. Are they on a
