The idea of travelling, really travelling, I find quite a stressful thought. But what are the benefits of travelling?

Fun and Healthy Snacking with Googly Fruit Organic

L is obsessed with snacks. He could have literally just finished a three course meal and he would be asking for a snack. This means I need a variety of healthy and delicious snacks on hand. So when a jam packed full box of Googly Fruit Organic arrived on the doorstep I was very happy.

Vertigo Adventures

Last Sunday husb and I headed off to Welwyn Garden City for a day of challenges with Vertigo Adventures. An amazing high ropes centre in Stanborough Park.

Now I’m not a fan of heights, I have no co-ordination and was a very long way out of my comfort zone. It was still one of the highlights of my week though. Husb on the other hand was in his element.

Feeling Calm #56

For my birthday last year I was given a great book ‘Calm’ and a journal from my friends. To help me find some calm in my life and to de-stress a little.

There aren’t many pictures from these last few days, and nothing much exciting has happened but regardless here are my top ten moments from the last 7 days:
