October has arrived along with the wind and the rain, so much rain that my home town was flooded out earlier this weekend. Thankfully our house is fairly raised thus we managed to avoid any damage but that wasn’t the case for many of the locals whose houses were sadly ruined following the downpour.

According to one of my good friends who works alongside the council it was so extreme that one poor chap literally had ducks paddling in his living room! I myself have never seen so much water fall from the sky in such a short space of time, there were flood warnings here there and everywhere but unfortunately my home town seemed to take the brunt of the bad weather which has since been on ‘operation cleanup and carry on’ as is the Northern outlook upon life.… Read more from this post

It’s officially the last day of September and once again time for me to write-up the things that I have ‘Liked and Loved’ throughout the past month.

It’s been a busy month for many reasons, I for one feel as if I’ve barely had time to breathe there’s been that much going on, here’s hoping October is a little less ‘chaotic’ but given the amount of bookings that we have for various gigs, parties and such-like that is highly doubtful!

I suppose the best way to beat a bad day is to focus on the positives and to think ‘happy thoughts’ so what better than to write my #LittleLoves from the week?


I’ve actually made time for my ‘Inbox’ this week and at one point I had managed to read and reply to almost every email resulting in my first ’empty inbox’ in months!… Read more from this post

Twelve years ago shortly after moving in together Paul and I were looking into the idea of getting a puppy. We had toyed with the idea of getting a basset hound after falling in love with their appearance and having researched the breed to a lengthy degree we then made the decision to begin searching for our very ‘baby basset’.

Having being brought up with dogs I was already accustomed to the idea of having a puppy to look after and was more than willing to do so. However, each and every time I rang any of the breeders selling bassets they seemed reluctant to offer us a puppy as I was unwilling to ‘show’ dogs as I personally feel that a dog is a pet, another member of the family if you will and therefore should never be treated like a trophy to display.… Read more from this post
