Out and About: The Bluebell Woods

There’s an area near to where I grew up that as kids we crowned the Bluebell Woods as they were just spectacular in springtime when those gorgeous blue flowers would pop up from nowhere and take over the woods.

A couple of weeks ago both Fi and I were at the parental abode for the weekend. As we were in the middle of half marathon training (eek!) we decided to head out on a run early Sunday morning with our Dad. The plan was to head out to Ripley and then run along the canal…. Read more »

Out and About: Travelling in Europe

{unsplash – Liane Metzler} So here’s the thing. I can’t afford a holiday and yet I’ve got severe wanderlust for EVERYWHERE in Europe right now.
