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 & I were meant to be spending a week at Newport in Pembrokeshire, Wales this year. However, due to an exciting development in our lives, we decided postpone the trip until next year. But to make things worse – as I was already sad to not be visiting a place that is incredibly close to my heart – my birthday was during that week. So, Dave offered – after I dropped some rather heavy hints! – to plan something for my birthday anyway. Read more “Birthday Surprise to Pembrokeshire, Wales”
My Mum & I have been trying to see the The Real Flower Petal Confetti Company’s flower fields in Wick, Worcestershire for a few years now. But for one reason & another, we’ve always missed them. Read more “Confetti Flower Fields, Worcestershire”
On the morning of our last day in Cornwall for the Bank Holiday, my friends & I decided to go to Blue Reef Aquarium Newquay. Our group takes the trip down south every May but have never actually visited the aquarium. This year, that was rectified! Read more “Blue Reef Aquarium Newquay, Cornwall”
The May Bank Holiday is one of the best weekends in the year. What started off as attending the ‘Run to the Sun‘ Festival, has now turned in to an annual camping trip to Newquay with a bunch of friends. The past couple of years have been so much fun; check out the photos here & here. Read more “May Bank Holiday in Newquay, Cornwall”
