#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!…

What’s It All About?

I’ve ticked some serious boxes this weekend, I’ve managed to read and reply to the majority of my inbox, caught up with at least three hours of soaps, made a start on a job application, got through four washing loads, cleaned the fridge, made dinner, washed up, completed my tax returns, cleaned shoes, done a shopping run and put all the groceries away yet somehow there’s still jobs waiting to be done!

#LittleLoves – Boohoo, Tori, Ellie & Mr Manford

Friday’s here again, the first week of the new term has flown by in a flash. I can’t say that I’ve done a great deal in reality but as I do I’ll give it my best shot at finding a few #LittleLoves from the past seven days or so.

I haven’t really read much of anything since unless you count reading lyrics to sing along to at the piano.



With the daily routine kicking in I’ve found very little time to watch anything other than the odd soap on the box.…

The Bank Holiday Weekend Has Arrived

Slam! The Bank Holiday weekend has finally arrived and with that comes a whole heap of garden related fodder for Paul whilst I try my hardest to get back on track with blogging and such like.

For some reason or other I’ve not really been ‘feeling it’ over the past few days. I haven’t even bothered reading other people’s blog posts which is a tad naughty but I guess I’ll catch up with those that I read over the next few weeks or so. Please excuse my recent silence but I’ll be totally honest I’ve quite enjoyed living in the real World for a bit.…

Blogging Behind The Scenes – Is Vlogging The New Blogging?

Welcome to the fourth post in the ‘Blogging Behind The Scenes’ series. Throughout the ‘Blogging Behind The Scenes’ series both myself and a group of bloggers will be sharing our experiences and advice upon a range of blogging related topics, this week we are focusing upon Vlogging and asking whether it could perhaps be the new blogging.

Blogging VS Vlogging

Whilst I have been creating video content for numerous years now, when I first began YouTube was fairly new on the street. It seems funny looking back at how YouTube has expanded over the years, it has literally exploded in popularity.…
