A Little Father’s Day Message for Ed 

I wanted to write a post today, because I don’t think I show Ed how much I appreciate him. It’s easy to live day to day, when you’re in a relationship, where you get by, without showing somebody how much they mean to you. It’s easy to take somebody for granted, to not let them know how you really feel.  Father’s Day is a hard one since having children myself....

Mummy Mondays – Easter Fun with Holibob Bear 

Cameron and Carly are both at the stage where they are totally obsessed with their cuddly toys. Carly especially uses hers for comfort, and both will head to bed with an array of cute and furry creatures every night.  When Laura, creator of Holibob bears, offered to send a couple for the kids to review I knew they would love them immediately. The bears are super soft and cuddly, come...

Our Stroll Through the Deep Dark Wood – The Gruffalo Spotter Adventure at Moors Valley

Our first day was a relaxed one, having some lunch and going down to the beachfront in Bude before heading back to our farm guesthouse near Holsworthy. The Hollies Guesthouse is a quaint little bed and breakfast down a country lane. Our bedroom...

My Happy Place 

Ok so my absolute number one happy place is in fact Disneyland… However, that’s a bit far away and out of reach when you’re as poor as me. So I make do with my second happy place, the beach, which I’m luckily located just a short drive away from #lovewhereilive…  Last night I reached a very low point and unfortunately sleep didn’t cure all. I woke up and struggled to...

All Change! 

It feels like I’ve not blogged in forever. As I mentioned previously, everything pretty much changed in my life around the same time so I’ve been taking a bit of time out to transition and try and get everything straight again before concentrating on my writing.  In the past few weeks I’ve left my stressful, full time job and started a new job which is much calmer, much more ‘me’...
