My friend and I have been trying to do different activities on our regular catch ups this year. Earlier in Summer, we went for a delicious Cocktail Afternoon Tea at Malmaison Hotel in Birmingham and the other weekend, we spent a relaxing afternoon at the Cotswolds Hotel & Spa.

On a trip to Cheltenham in Gloucestershire, you are bound to come across some top-notch restaurants. The daddy of these fine dining establishments is Prithvi Restaurant* and recently, we were invited to sample their new Autumn menu. Since our visit, it’s safe to say that we now understand why it’s rated so highly on Trip Advisor! Read more “Lunch with Prithvi Restaurant in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire”
Dave and I looked after Pepper, Dave’s parents’ dog, in September and it was such a success, that we have had her stay with us again recently! The weather wasn’t looking bad on the Sunday and with Autumn being in full swing, we headed for a walk at Symonds Yat in Herefordshire. Read more “Autumn Trek at Symonds Yat, Hereforshire”

If you’re a follower of my blog, you’ll know that my two friends – Jodie and Nikki – and I meet up regularly for cake dates and catch ups. Every time we do, we talk about getting fitter but never actually do anything about it. Until now… We’ve decided to hike up Mount Snowdon next year! And we’ve made it our mission to get ready for it by doing a series of hill climbs and long walks; starting with the Cleeve Hill Circular in Gloucestershire!

Dave and I recently bought our first house – yay, us! Because of this and having a garden, Dave’s parents’ dog came to stay for the weekend. Considering they had let us stay at theirs whilst saving for a deposit, we felt they definitely deserved a break!! In order to explore some of our new local area and give Pepper a good walk, we headed out to the Cotswold village of Winchcombe and long-barrow, Belas Knap, armed with the National Trails Walk Guidelines and Map.

Whilst living in Bredon, Dave and I often ventured out and explored the Cotswold village with his parent’s dog, Pepper. Here’s the photo diary from one of our late Summer walks.
Dave’s uncle turned 60 in June & to celebrate, his wife & daughters rallied some family & friends together to spend a weekend glamping in Devon. All of this a surprise for Malcolm, of course!
