#MySundayPhoto – Coming Home

There’s something rather endearing about driving back to the West Lakes, the sun setting over the Combe, the estuary reflecting the blanket of rolling clouds and  the iconic church steeple peeping out from across the bay welcoming us home.

As we live ‘in the arse end of nowhere’ as many call it we have to drive at least an hour to reach the motorway. Despite the journey being a bit of a ball ache it’s at least a scenic drive!

I’ve driven this route countless times and each and every time I cannot help but to take a moment to appreciate the view as I make my way across the bay.… Read more from this post

#MySundayPhoto – Blue Skies

Given that ‘Blue Skies’ is one of my all time favourite Tori Amos tracks or should I say remixes I decided to shoot a snap of my very own ‘Blue Skies’ for this weeks #MySundayPhoto.

It’s only May and already I have started replaying and rewatching Tori tracks and performances from previous gigs, god knows how I’ll make it until October without bursting from sheer excitement. That woman is a frigging legend, in fact without going into too much detail I think she may well be the only female I would ever consider grabbing the bat and heading towards the other team for!… Read more from this post

#MySundayPhoto – Calm At The Coast 

Every now and then we all need a little time to kick back and to take a moment. Whenever I’m in need of time out I will usually be found sat by the coast. The fresh air, the open water, the beautiful skyline and the stunning views are usually enough to blow the cobwebs away.

I have said it so often in many of my previous posts but I will say it once again – I am so lucky to live by the sea. Whilst I may live somewhere which many may term as ‘the arse end of nowhere’ I am at least grateful for the stunning scenery which I am surrounded by on a daily basis.… Read more from this post

#MySundayPhoto – Wandering By The Water

Earlier this week I returned to a place from my past to meet up with some familiar faces. Despite living only half an hour away from The Lake District it’s not often that I actually visit the Lakes. 

The views were quite simply stunning and the atmosphere was serene. Given that this beautiful place is only a hop, skip and a jump away I will be sure to make a return for some wine, wandering and stone skimming sometime in the future.

It’s quite an amusing fact but did you know that technically the Lake District only has one Lake? ‘ Yep… It’s strange but true!… Read more from this post

#MySundayPhoto – Lowther Castle

Last week Paul and I took the sprogs to Lowther Castle for the day. We were graced by the good weather but sadly cursed by the bank holiday traffic. What should have taken us just over an hour and a half in the car took us almost two hours or more.

Seriously, I must have a bladder the size of a pea as having drunk way too much coffee prior to setting off it was actually me that seemed to cause the hold up with endless pit stops whilst on the road.

Having finally arrived at the castle we settled for dinner in the courtyard (a picnic prepared by Paul).… Read more from this post

#MySundayPhoto – The Fearless Foursome

Happy Sunday and of course, Happy Easter to you all! I’ve once again been busy behind the bar keeping the punters happy whilst Paul spent the afternoon out and about with the kids.

I often feel guilty for being out over the weekend, it doesn’t seem right especially with it being Easter. Needs must I guess, here’s hoping that with a little luck and a bit more time I might be able to find an alternative job with more sociable hours.

Anyhow less of the moaning as despite my absence the kids still had oodles of fun with their wonderful Daddy and the dog of course.… Read more from this post
