Does what it says on the tin, really. I’m hoping most of this will go from wish list to concrete plans at some point in the year. Dream now, travel later. 10 places I’d like to go in 2021. Some are local, some overseas. I live in hope. Some are re-visits of places I didn’t… Continue reading 10 Places For 2021: My Wish List
Happy New Year ! Here’s to all the hopes and dreams of a fresh start. And thankfully so. Honestly, despite generally being a glass-half-full person, the back end of last year got me down. I avoided any major disasters and the dreaded COVID, but a handful of other things including restrictions on seeing people, issues… Continue reading Deployment: The Truth & The Future
First things first. Mail or post? Mail box or post box? Mail man or postman? It’s post, post box and postman or ‘postie’ for me.

It’s no secret that I am quite fond of an old church to mooch about in, and even fonder of a good old graveyard. I love a good graveyard. Imagine how chuffed I would be, then, if I could be the guest of a church for a night. My very own church and my very… Continue reading Sleeping Over In A Historic Church: Champing.
Things I love include food, flowers and heritage. Since moving to a more rural posting here in Wiltshire, I’m also nurturing a growing interest in wild food and foraging. So finding a pop up coffee shop with an emphasis on local and sustainable located in a historic courtyard of converted buildings…winner! Wilton Shopping Village is… Continue reading Herbs & Wild @ Wilton Shopping Village
The second day of our trip got off to an early start. I’d like to say because we were super organised and really keen to get going. Truth is, we got an early wake up call from our big and bouncy six month old German Shepherd. Moral of the tale- if you value a lie… Continue reading Orkney Road Trip Day 2: Scottish Mainland to Orkney Mainland.
