October is here which means the month is full of changing weather, brighter lights and darker nights and of course, spooky events ready for Halloween. October for the people of Hull also means Hull Fair is back in town.
Hull Fair is one of the largest travelling fairs in Europe. It’s been a part of Hull’s history for over 700 years which I think is pretty impressive. Over time it has evolved and adapted, but it’s still as vibrant as it was when it originally began. If you’re interested in knowing more, click here.
I just wanted to share with you all a picture I took at the top of the Big Wheel. It’s actually quite high and a bit blowy at the top. Nevertheless, the view is absolutely worth it. I hope you enjoy it!
I hope you’re all well and having an excellent weekend. I’ll be back soon with a another post!

Happy September. Where has the time gone? It seems like one minute I was on a beach in Cyprus and the next I was back in my classroom with fresh eyed children ready for the start of a new year. It’s hit me like a brick in the face. I don’t know where the time goes and I’ve really wanted to blog but the words wouldn’t come.
So today after trying to write a couple of posts, I thought I’d share with you a Picture Perfect Polaroid of the most stunning sunset. I’ve seen a few pink and hazy skies this week which is a real treat. I hope you all enjoy. Hopefully, this will help the words come and I can blog some more. I miss you guys.
Enjoy the last of the summer weather. I know for sure I am clinging onto it. I’m not quite ready to embrace the winter chill just yet.

It’s been a while since I’ve posted a Picture Perfect Polaroid so I wanted to share one of my favourite snaps from my recent holiday.
I had the amazing opportunity to go diving, something I’ve not done for a long time. However, being a complete and utter water baby, I couldn’t refuse. Thank goodness that I didn’t because I got to swim with the most incredible sea turtle.
There has been so much attention, quite rightfully so, on looking after our oceans. Whilst I was diving I saw a coffee cup, plastic bag and two inflatables drifting out. We absolutely need to work together to protect our beautiful, blue planet.
This moment was one of the most inspirational and incredible moments of my life. I absolutely will never forget it. What an amazing opportunity. None of the other dives that followed this saw the turtle either. These glimpses are so rare and so wonderful. I’m in complete awe. I really hope you love this photo as much as I do.
Until next time! Big love all xxx
Happy June! I know I need to post my review of May’s book of the month. However, I wanted to share a gorgeous snap I took whilst visiting London.
It’s been on my bucket list since I heard it was built. I’ve always wanted to visit The Shard and boy it didn’t disappoint. It was amazing in every sense of the word! The height, the views, the champagne bars! Lush!
My favourite view was of Tower Bridge. I hope you like too!
I’ll be back for May’s post and more adventures! For now, have a great weekend.

April 15th 2019 – The day Notre Dame burnt before our very eyes.
It isn’t a lie to say I shed tears seeing the sights from Paris last night. Yet, whilst the cathedral was being engulfed with flames I had this deep feeling of hope. The media shared images of Parisians coming together to sing Ave Maria. Everyone is united. Therefore, it’s only fitting that my post today is filled with love for the Notre Dame.
Built in 1163. 200 years later it stands complete. It survived two world wars, revolutions and plagues. The morning after the night before shows the extent of the damage. There is always hope.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you France. Your loss is our loss. Your pain is out pain. Paris, je t’aime. 💖
I have been sat thinking hard about my post today as it’s something I have found really difficult to come to terms with. You may have heard the name Libby Squire recently. On February 1st, Libby disappeared after a night out in Hull. 7 weeks later, her body was found in the Humber Estuary.
I don’t want to focus on the story, the how’s and the what’s. I want to focus on the memory of a 21 year old girl who vanished and died. I went to Hull University. I’ve been to the clubs she went to. I’ve walked down the road where she was last seen. I’m not the only one. We’ve all been there, in this city or any other.
I feel it too because it is not what the people of Hull are like. We are a community. We are a city who look out for one another.
As a city, we are mourning the loss of a beautiful young girl. My heart breaks for her Mum, Dad and family. For her friends and loved ones. The city is grieving with you; for you.
This polaroid is of the memorial bench where Libby was last seen. I’ve added my own bunch of pink roses and a card. It’s the least I could do.
So, hug someone you love just a bit tighter today. Find comfort in those around you. We will carry on. We will be the strength for her family if they need us.
Heaven has gained an angel.
