I am proud to say that I was born in Milton Keynes and I even bought my first AND second home here, and I plan to stay here for the long run. It’s a really unique town – I absolutely love it here and I can’t imagine ever living anywhere else to be honest. I’ve been a Milton Keynes blogger for over 8 years now, and MK is sometimes mocked by those who have never actually visited – but there’s plenty more to the town than just concrete cows and roundabouts (although there are over 130)! It might not be…

Spring has officially arrived which means it’s the perfect time to de-clutter! With the return of every springtime, I feel re-energised and ready to refresh my life. It’s a great opportunity to give your life a spring clean and clear some space in your home and mind. Sometimes it’s easy to fall into an bad routine and clutter can come in all shapes and sizes including toxic friendships, unpaid bills, bad health habits as well as an untidy home. This is by no means a ‘life guru’ type post, but more of my own personal to-do list, so I thought…

A couple of weekends ago (when it was the hottest February on record!) we went for a lovely little weekend away to Norfolk. I love exploring the UK, and we were kindly invited to stay at Woodlakes Park; a log cabin holiday park with fishing lakes set within 66 acres of rural parkland. The park is located near to Stowbridge in King’s Lynn, but the nearest town is Downham Market which is a short drive away. The north Norfolk coast is only a 45 minute drive away and the Royal Estate of Sandringham is even closer. I’d never stayed in…

Merlin (my beautiful, fluffy ragdoll cat) is almost 7 years old! It still feels like only yesterday that we picked him up from the breeder and he was so tiny. I knew from our first moment that we would be best of friends, which sounds awfully cheesy, but it’s so true. And I’m not alone; according to the Petplan Pet Census 2018, 41% of owners refer to their pet as their best friend, and 44% call their pet their “baby”.. which I’m also guilty of! Merlin has grown into quite the handsome big boy – he was such a tiny…

I can’t believe how quickly February is going and that it’s almost Valentine’s Day already! I’m quite looking forward to Valentine’s this year as Gavin is taking me out for a surprise dinner, which is nice because normally I plan everything! So it will be interesting to see what he’s arranged. I thought I’d put together a little gift guide with some last minute gift ideas for those that might have left it a little bit late. Even if you don’t do ‘big presents’, I think a small gesture is always appreciated. Presents for Valentine’s Day don’t have to be…

At the beginning of last year I did a blog post on my travel plans for 2018, so I thought I’d do something similar for 2019! I’ve already managed to get a few little trips booked in for this year which I’m very excited about, but I’m also starting to think about a bigger holiday for 2020. I’m trying to save up as much money as possible in 2019 as I plan to sell the flat and buy a ‘proper house’, so hopefully then next year I can go all out on a big holiday! Here are my plans so…
