It was the Saturday when England played football. The game of the World Cup where England were doing better than they had done in... I don’t know how long... because I didn’t really care. They were doing well though and everyone was having barbecues or going to the pub. It’s been hot you see, we… Continue reading Parrots, Football and Time Travel – Pleasurewood Hills
I ended 2017 with a post reflecting my year of blogging. Although I began writing a blog in 2016 I feel I didn’t really get to grips with it until last year. I decided to make blogging my main focus, my main hobby, a part of me. I honestly didn’t realise the amount of time… Continue reading 2018 – Aims not Resolutions
I’ve very much enjoyed my first attempt at blogmas, my ‘Sporadic Blogmas’ this year. I know I haven’t posted everyday, but I did warn you that was never going to happen.

I have been nominated by Belle and… Continue reading Nominated for the Liebster Award 2017!

(The first man can be found here.) Do you remember my rant back in February 'The Elusive Golden Ticket - Ed Sheeran'? If you haven't… Continue reading I Got a Golden Ticket – Ed Sheeran
This a post that will be updated over time, so you'll need to keep an eye for new additions! Having a wee is something I think many people take for granted, and don't realise how something they do every day, many times a day, without even thinking about, can be a constant issue for others.… Continue reading To Wee or Not to Wee – How accessible is an accessible toilet?
Mum, Uncle, Becky (my PA) and I seated in Claridge'sSo I turned the big 30 last year! I'm not one for DJ's and dancing, so I decided to have a big afternoon tea party. As a birthday present my uncle gave me a gift certificate for afternoon tea at Claridge's London! Being a bit slow… Continue reading Road trip to Claridge’s
