Hope you’re all having a great weekend. I took one last opportunity to go exploring, this time with my lovely Mum and Dad. We all work ridiculous hours, like many families, so we always try and make our time count.
Followers of my blog will know how much we love our National Trust membership; this time we visited Chedworth Roman Villa.
What blew me away was the fact that it was literally tucked away in the middle of nowhere. How did the Romans find it? Why that spot? So many unanswered questions.
The biggest fascination I had was with the fact that there’s still more to be discovered. Inside the museum, which was added in the Victorian period, parts of mosaic and stone were being still being found last year. It’s always quite inspiring to know there’s secrets hidden beneath the earth.
The mosaic they have found so far are so beautiful. It’s incredible what has been preserved so far.
Places like this require imagination. There are only parts left. But, I find that quite magical really. It’s giving you an active piece of history that you can interpret yourself. My favourite part: the bathhouse rooms and the outdoor water shrine.
I enjoyed getting my geek on in terms of history this weekend. I hoped you enjoyed my photos! If you’d like more information, check out The National Trust Website.
Big love to you all xxx
Isn’t this time of year just beautiful?! I really love to see all the colours and the different leaves. I love to hear the crunch under foot. I just feel like everything is more crisp and lovely in Autumn.
Whilst I had a small window of opportunity today, I decided I needed to have a little time to soak in beautiful Stratford upon Avon. The colours were indescribable. I wanted to share this with you, in the hope that the 5 minutes you spend looking at this, you feel as inspired and calm as I did.

It’s the first time in a while I’ve felt calm and at ease. The fresh air always makes me feel better. Sometimes you need to just stop and take it all in…
Big love xx
I can’t believe how crazy things have been. Life is throwing many a challenge my way and I must apologise for not being around for weeks. I feel like every post I make starts with an apology. I need to make more time for myself and for you lovely people too…starting this weekend. Good timing as well because this week is Hull Fair week. And, hold the phone, I went twice!
The best bit (other than seeing my lovely friends) was the big wheel. I’m a bit of a wimp really with these things, but the view was amazing. I’m actually surprised how big it is! The lights really are so lovely though.
For the past two years, my friends and I club together and go on that game where you have to add up to 21, and have won! I’ve got a minion, a unicorn and now a heffalump.
Thanks Hull Fair 2016, you’ve been awesome!
Big love x
