It doesn’t take much to make me happy. In fact, most of the time all it takes is a bowl of ice cream, a blanket and a ‘Biggest Loser’ marathon on telly. However, every now and then I’m cheered by the little things that make life more beautiful. Here is a list of some of the things […]

fruit picking

Fruit picking is a bit of a summer tradition in our house. In fact, long term readers of this blog would have probably remember that I wrote a similar post this time last year. My father used to take us to Pick-Your-Own farms when I was little and I have happy memories skipping through the […]

It is said that the British have an obsession with the weather and I am no exception. Weeks of furtive glances at the weather app on my phone finally paid off and we’ve been rewarded with lots of summer sun… for now, anyway. As well as the usual, ‘I have nothing to wear’ complaint that […]

vintage caravan hire - eden celebration

It’s almost a year ago now since we completed the renovation of our Vintage Carlight Caravan, which we named Matilda.
