Top 10 Holiday Destinations

I hope you didn’t come here looking for some big shot recommendation, although I am kind of big deal… 😉 I love a good holiday, who doesn’t? I don’t really have a favourite holiday type. Anything that means I don’t have … Continue reading Top 10 Holiday Destinations

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 of it. But! Today was all about surviving. Now I know that one day, maybe not too far in the future, we will be faced with the zombie apocalypse. And I am preparing myself for this undeniable event. I have noticed recently that the people I have … Continue reading Bush-Craft Survival Day (aka Zombie prep)

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 sad but also great because it means I get really good service 😉 They don’t have to feel sorry for me though, I do lots of things alone and I love it. I go for walks by myself, it’s nice to have company but sometimes … Continue reading My solo travels – First stop…York

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 afternoon at The Quiet Site in Ullswater and were greeted by the wonderful Sarah, quite possibly one of the friendliest members of staff of anywhere I’ve ever been. Sarah gave us a tour of the site and showed us to our lovely little pod that would be our … Continue reading No longer a glamping virgin!

“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. “Your unique selling point. What is it?” “Oh well, I don’t know. Me, I suppose” Well apparently that wasn’t a good enough answer for this lady who actually had no influence on me or my blog… To be perfectly honest though I think it was … Continue reading “What’s your USP?”…

Northumberland Day Three

Our third and final day. Seahouses was on the agenda today. My Uncle John and Aunty Janet were up this way for a short break so we called to see them. A visit to Seahouses wouldn’t be complete without some delicious fish and chips. We usually get ours from the main restaurant near the roundabout but we opted for Lewis’ this time, just around the corner from the National Trust shop. They were unbelievable, definitely in my top five of fish and chips and the staff were really friendly too. We spent a couple of hours with my Uncle and … Continue reading Northumberland Day Three

Northumberland: Day One

It’s always a treat to Visit Northumberland, there’s a feeling of relaxation as you make your way further North. It’s serene, calm. The air is clear and you could be forgiven for thinking that could actually run in to a dragon at any given moment. My Mum has a cottage in a small village just outside Berwick- Upon-Tweed and so I get to visit this incredible place at least once a year and it never gets old. There are beautiful fossil filled beaches, craggy coastlines and more castles than you can shake a stick at. Our plan for this weekend … Continue reading Northumberland: Day One
