Travel Experiences You Can Have at Home

I miss travelling. Not only travel to far off places but also being able to explore my local area. Whether that’s popping to the lakes for some archery or visiting one of our many museums. And I imagine a lot of you are in the same boat at the moment (no pun intended). But while you’re busy dreaming about all the places you could be visiting. Like the Eiffel Tower in Paris or the beautiful bridges of Prague. You might be missing what’s right in front of you and all the travel experiences you can have at home. From reliving […]

Small Acts of Kindness You Can Try at Home

This week is Mental Health Awareness Week. An annual event hosted by the Mental Health Foundation whose aim is to raise awareness of mental health issues by promoting conversation and breaking down the stigma.

My Birthday Celebrations in Lockdown

Well, Michelle at GeekGirl has created a video game twist on this classic drinking game. Where all the questions are related to gaming.

Tips for Baking on a Budget

Baking is one of my favourite hobbies; as it combines two of my favourite things – being creative, and food! So what’s not to love? It’s also a great rainy day activity and comes in handy for birthdays and Christmases… Is it just me or does a homemade cake taste so much better? 🎂🤤 But as much as I love baking, it can also be quite an expensive hobby to get into, which is why I try to budget my baking costs wherever possible. From the set-up costs such as equipment, mixing bowls, and baking trays. To the costs of […]

Star Wars Tag – May the 4th Be With You.

Happy Star Wars Day and May the 4th be with you! Today Aaron and I will be celebrating by watching as many of the Star Wars movies as we can! In time line order. And as you’re reading this we’re already starting Episode I : The Phantom Menace. I think it’s worth mentioning that the total watch-time for Episodes I-IX is 17 hours and 57 minutes. that excludes the two spin-off movies! So we should be able to fit in 7 or 8 of them today, with the remaining movies being watched tomorrow for ‘Revenge of the Fifth’, and finishing […]
