The Vegetarian Foodie Case From Waitrose Cellar – A Review

I have a pet hate when it comes to wine. I’m not a huge wine drinker and I will admit now that I’m far from being an expert on the subject. I just don’t understand what it goes with and when you should drink which type of wine. Add to this that I’m constantly told […]

Our Summer Of Family Fun

We may not have been anywhere exotic this summer.

We may not have had the best weather.

What we have had is family fun, swimming, cycling, bouncing, paddling, exploring and smiles.

We spent a week in Derbyshire where I grew up, close to all my family. I love the time we spend down there as it gives the kids time to get to know their grandparents.

We spent a few days near York, where we first lived together and got married. A city full of memories around every corner.

The latter part of our summer was tinged with sadness as I lost my wedding ring in York. Ironic really as it was where we were married and our first trip back as a family of four.

The good news is that the ring was handed in and I’ve now got it back :)

Anyway here is our summer in photos.
