Finally Free!

If you’re family, or if you’re friends with me on Facebook, you’ll know that I’ve been in hospital for the last 3 and a bit weeks. I’d had stomach pains for a couple of weeks when it got so bad… Continue Reading →

We’re Engaged!!

So I have exciting news for you, Cameron took me away for a few days at the beach in Scarborough, and while we were there, HE PROPOSED! It was such a great weekend, obviously, and I still can’t stop smiling… Continue Reading →

Day out at The Tetley

As we had half a day off work to go and see Chicago at the Alhambra Theatre in Bradford, since Cameron bought me tickets for Christmas, we decided to take Cameron’s mum and Auntie Julie out for a nice lunch… Continue Reading →

Confirmation and First Communion

Today was my confirmation at Church. Since coming back into my faith last year and starting attending Pudsey Parish Church, I’ve done lots of things that have made my life so much better, I’ve started going to a weekly Cell… Continue Reading →

Fountains Abbey and Studley Royal

It’s very very late, but today my sister and I took my mum out for a belated birthday/mother’s day out. The weather has been really sunny and warm all week, so it’s bloomin’ typical that today it would decide to… Continue Reading →

Packwood House

After visiting Croome and driving a bit further up the motorway, the plan was to visit Hardwick Hall, south of Sheffield. But we spent so long looking around the lovely Croome that we realised we’d get there about 15 minutes… Continue Reading →

Croome

Today was our drive back to Leeds from Bristol, and rather than break up the journey with service stations, we decided to break up the journey with a couple of National Trust properties instead. The first was Croome. We didn’t… Continue Reading →

Chedworth Roman Villa

This was a slightly longer drive away from Bristol than I had anticipated, and a lot of small narrow country roads, my idea of driving hell. But it was interesting to be walking around a place that was built about… Continue Reading →

Tyntesfield

For the next trip of our holiday we decided to go to Tyntesfield. Alan had been there a few times before and loved it, but we’d never been. It was a beautiful house inside and out, and the gardens were… Continue Reading →

Tredegar House and Dyffryn Gardens

As we’re on holiday at my Uncle’s house in Bristol at the moment, we’ve renewed our National Trust membership and spent yesterday on a day trip across to Wales to see some places that Alan has never seen before. A… Continue Reading →

Wintery Walk Around Yeadon Tarn

Tour de France Grand Depart Stage 2 – Huddersfield

Unless you’ve been living in a cave for the last few weeks, you’re probably more than aware that it was the Grand Depart of the Tour De France this weekend, and where else but my home county of Yorkshire! We… Continue Reading →

Am I turning into a crazy cat lady? Maybe…

My aunt went back to her house in Crete this week, so me and Cameron moved temporarily into her house to look after her cat Jessica and her dog Ben. Last time we stayed over, Jessica pretty much just ignored… Continue Reading →

Holiday Day Five – Midland Air Museum & Baddesley Clinton

For the final day of our holiday, we didn’t really know what we wanted to do, so I googled things to do in Coventry and the top result was the Midland Air Museum, based at Coventry Airport. At only £6.50… Continue Reading →

Holiday Day Four – Castle Drogo

Day four of our holiday involved a drive partially home for the next stage of our holiday in Coventry. We didn’t want to lose an entire day to travelling, so we decided to pick a National Trust property on our… Continue Reading →

Cornwall Day Three – Lands End & St Michael’s Mount

No trip to Cornwall would be complete without a trip to Lands End, so we decided to venture down there on day three of our holiday. We arrived quite early, but it was already packed with visitors! There were quite… Continue Reading →

Cornwall Day Two – Holywell Bay

On the second day of our holiday we decided to go for a drive and find one of the National Trust car parks on the coast which are free to park in for National Trust members like us. We picked… Continue Reading →

Cornwall Day One – Fowey

The first day of our holiday was mostly spent driving from Bristol to Cornwall after staying the night with my uncle the night before. But after we’d unpacked at the hotel, we decided to go for a drive and check… Continue Reading →

HM2014 – 30th April

Yesterday was another good day. I had a massive headache at work, but a walk around Golden Acre Park with Cameron in the evening pretty much cleared that up. I always seem to get headaches when I start to drink… Continue Reading →

I love you, Grandma

In a post last month, I alluded to some ‘personal problems’ that I’d been having and that I’d blog about it later. I’m not sure I’m quite ready yet, but I think I need to write about it, so here… Continue Reading →

Bowling and a Trip to the Tetley

We had the day off work today after staying out later for the gig last night, so we decided to make the most of it! First up was bowling at Hollywood Bowl in Kirkstall. Neither of us had been bowling… Continue Reading →
