Films That Make Me Happy

If you have read some of my previous blog posts, you’ll know I have a love for film and TV and so I thought I would introduce a section on my blog just for film and TV. I’ll do occasionally reviews, round-ups and basically just talk about my favourite things to watch. To start off, […]

Realistic Goals for 2019

I was looking back at my post on the places to go and things to do I had planned for 2018 and it’s safe to say I didn’t really do any of it. 2018 sucked for me, and I am hoping this coming year is going to be better. As such, I am going to […]

Poppies in Bishop's Palace, Wells

Day Trip to Wells

I’m pretty lucky in that I live in the South West – a beautiful part of the UK. There are several places I want to see more of, and last month I managed to take a trip up to Wells in Somerset. Though Wells has a population of around 10,500, it has been a city […]

Most people who meet me find out before long that I am a big Harry Potter fan – I have read the books several times, love the films and could talk about the Wizarding World for hours (if you let me!). Thankfully, I have friends and family who love it as much as me, so, […]

The Shambles in York

Day Trip to York

I recently had a week off work, staying with my family in Nottinghamshire and planned a busy week for myself seeing family and friends (and enjoying not being at work!). As my parents live in a well-connected town, I took the chance to have a day trip up to York. The last time I visited […]

Walk to Watersmeet

Being British, I take every opportunity I can to be outside in the sun – when it eventually appears! Last weekend was the first decent bit of weather the country has had this year, so, of course, I had to make the most of it and headed out for a walk. Devon has so many […]

My Travel Essentials

Everyone who travels has a different list of essentials they need to bring with them, whether it’s for a long holiday or just a weekend away, so I thought I would share mine! Phone and Charger I never thought I’d be someone who couldn’t live without their phone, but I have sadly fallen into that […]
