Lush’s Bath Shop.. and a haul

We went up to Bath yesterday for a little visit, and I couldn’t resist popping into Lush, one of my favourite shops. The Bath shop has moved since I last visited, and the new shop is huge, and even has a Lush Spa attached. Oh I’d…

A long drive to Scotland and homemade bread #LittleLoves

It’s been a busy couple of weeks here, we are still recovering from our trip to Scotland last week! We drove up and did the journey in two chunks each way, which was still about 22 hours driving. It was absolutely worth it as we had an amazing…

St Fagans National History Museum, Cardiff

When I was in school, my Dad used to take half term week as annual leave and we would have a week of adventure. He tells me that the first place on the list each week was the National History Museum at St Fagans. It was always one of my…

Bilbo, our faithful and loving crazy muck magnet

The 26th August was National Dog Day, which inspired me to write a post about our fabulous pooch Bill (aka Bilbo) We brought Bill home from a local rescue centre in January 2014, when he was around 8 months old. All we knew about him was that he was rescued…

Smiles, sunhats and slides #LittleLoves

We’ve been on a trip to Wales this week to visit Frey’s Mamgu and Grandad. Frey has absolutely loved it! He’s been in such a happy mood all week. Sleep has gone a bit out of the window, we have been co-sleeping this…

Choose kindness.. we can make a difference

I often think that I am so lucky that social media wasn’t even a ‘thing’ when I was in school. Bullying and bitchiness between girls was bad enough without cyberbullying to add to the mix. We didn’t have mobile phones or text messages, let…
