A Beautiful Summer Afternoon
On a Summer day back in August 2015, I grabbed my camera, jumped in my car and toddled off to Harrogate by myself. I often explored places by myself back then, I seemed very adventurous! Something that I’m trying hard this year to get back into. I had never visited Harrogate before my little trip out, so I remember being very excited to explore such a beautiful looking spa town. Now, luckily my boyfriend is from Harrogate, so we often go there to visit his parents. Any excuse for a mooch around town!!

Summer Holiday 2017
July last year, we jet set off to the beautiful island of Skiathos, Greece. It was my first time on the island, but my boyfriend had been a few times before with his parents. Also, my first time in Greece! Safe to stay that we had a wonderful holiday, got a tad sun burnt, and ate our body weight in Greek food. Divine. That’s what I call a holiday! We arrived in a heatwave, and when I mean heatwave, 47’c was recorded one day. It was that hot. My brain did not function!!! The hottest I’ve ever experienced prior was 32’c, and even then I could hardly cope…

A Stroll on the Beach
Saltburn-by-the-Sea is my local seaside town, boy am I lucky?! It’s by far one of my favourite seaside towns in the country. At one stage I used to go every Sunday morning for a walk, maybe I should do that more often. There’s nothing quite like having some sea air brushing off the cobwebs, even just for a brisk walk. It’s equally enjoyable in the Winter, as in the Summer. Winter is a lot quieter, with dog walkers wrapped up to keep warm. I love seeing dogs playing on the beach, it brings me so much joy. Wagging sea-salted tails, I just love it!

If you saw my last post, then you’ll know I was wondering if I was going to be making breakfast the next morning. Well, I lost the bet yesterday. 9cm of snow was recorded!! AND the little town we live in was mentioned on the national weather news on BBC! Wowza. I was SO bloomin’ excited that I didn’t get to sleep until 3am. I am the BIGGEST kid ever when it snows. It makes me so happy. I love to hear the crunch of snow under my feet, and it makes everywhere look so pretty, regardless of where you are.

Where I Want To Go
I’m tucked up in bed, wondering if we wake up to a sprinkling ‘like icing sugar’, or a couple of inches of snow tomorrow morning. If it’s a ‘like icing sugar’ situation, then woohoo my boyfriend has to make me breakfast. But really, deep down, I want METRES of snow. I want to be snowed in! Other than snow on my mind, I’m figuring out my top 5 places in the UK that I want to visit this year. This year is all about exploring, especially in the UK.

Often found on postcards, Runswick Bay is pretty much picture perfect. But, in Winter… it’s like a post-apocalypse seaside village. Probably 90% of cottages are holiday rentals, so it was dead. Eerily quiet. So quiet that when I was walking up to get back in my car, I was so shocked to bump into a couple that I jumped a mile, said ‘corr, you made me jump!’, and the gentleman replied with ‘did you get any good shots?’, and with that I just replied with ‘yeah yeah’. ‘Yeah yeah’?! I didn’t mean to be so socially awkward, it just just such a shock to see human beings!!!
