LyvedenALIVE!

  Earlier in the year we joined The National Trust. The decision was made after a family half term trip to Cornwall, where virtually everywhere we visited (even some of the car parks) would have been free had we been National Trust members. I think in the end it was a particularly special jacket potato […]

September in Photo’s: Instagram Round up

September was another great month! I got another year older (booo) but it wasn’t all bad. I visited some great places (old and new). The little one went back to school (and is loving her new teacher – phew), so I got the chance to work on some new products and not forgetting I cracked […]

Playlist September 2015

It’s been a weird few weeks with many highs and lows. I went on my first ‘alone’ major trip in my new car last week to South Wales. The round trip was a few hundred miles, so I found myself in the alien situation of having several hours to myself with no one to talk […]

UK in a Day: Butlin’s Bognor Regis

I will forever have a soft spot for Bognor. Nineteen years ago, around about now, I was working as a store detective at All Days Supermarket in Butlin’s Holiday Camp. Myself, Steve (of pottery painting fame) and another friend went on holiday to the Bognor Regis holiday camp for a week after our final A […]

Inspiration on the South Coast

Valletta is a fortress city named after its founder in 1566 Grand Master of the Order of St. John, Jean Parisot de la Valette. This magnificent city was […]

What’s in my Bag? A Hand Luggage Special.

Today I’m busy packing for a family holiday to Malta and thought I’d share another ‘what’s in my bag’ feature. I like to travel as light as possible, largely because I have to consider all the the extra things I need to pack now I’m traveling with a little person. Somehow all of those little […]
