When Holidays Aren’t Quite Right | Kendal

I’m pretty skint at the moment, as I save and save and save as the flat purchasing process drags on and on (I hate solicitors), and I couldn’t really afford a holiday in the latter part of the year. I…

Altrincham Market

Sometimes it’s just good to get out of the city, and fortunately, Manchester is one of the better-connected cities in the north-west. I’ve added a tab under Manchester for all the places I’ve written about that are day-trip-distance, and I…

Three More Manchester Coffee Shops

Way back in May 2016 I wrote about three of my favourite Manchester coffee shops, all of which I continue to haunt on a regular basis. However, since moving to the city centre, I’ve discovered a few new absolute gems…

What I Packed for a Weekend In Scotland

(And What I Actually Used) I am definitely guilty of over-packing. The amount of stuff I take with me on holiday is entirely dependent on the bag that I take; if you give me a giant suitcase, I will fill…

Valentine’s Day | Hebden Bridge

Where I Am Right Now | Aylesbury

I recently took a trip down to Aylesbury in Buckinghamshire to visit a friend for a few days, and I took a few week photos while I was there.  Having seen this sort of post on a few other blogs,…

Where I Am Right Now | Sheffield

Last Sunday my Mother and I decided to go on a spontaneous trip to Sheffield.   After dropping my brother off at Manchester airport for his flight to Calgary, we pulled out the road atlas, followed a few roads and ended…

Where I Am Right Now | Llandudno

My Mother, Grandmother and I recently went on a spontaneous trip to Llandudno in North Wales.  My Nan has been several times before, mostly on old-lady-coach-trip type holidays, but it was the first time for me, and my Mum hasn’t…

Where I Am Right Now: Liverpool

I decided that I was in dire need of some time away from the small town where I’m currently living with my Mother, and after winning a twitter competition with PictureHouse Cinemas I had two free tickets for one of…
