Wish You Were Here? The Bell Inn, Bramshaw

I started this blog a little over a year ago, with the intention of ‘finding myself’. Ok that sounds rather hippy and dramatic but let me explain… I was hoping to find the me after the school run, the one who disappeared under a pile of nappies, school uniform and endless rounds of CBeebies about 17 years ago.

The Perfect Holiday – Does it Exist? 

Last Sunday was declared the hottest day of the year so far (not hard considering it’s only April). I’m sure I wasn’t the only Brit airing their milk bottle legs for the first time in about 6 months. I’m also pretty certain I wasn’t the only one staring at a rather scarlet reflection in the mirror later on that evening. Will we ever learn? Summer is on…

Fond Memories, a Perfect Moment and Total Relaxation #LittleLoves

Here we are again, on the cusp of the weekend and another week down. Since I last wrote on this here blog, I’ve been to the Alps and back. I’ve also experienced snow, sunshine, rain and freezing fog. No wonder I’m having trouble working out what season we are in! Either way, Spring we are so ready for you – please…
