For the Love Of Tea

As it gets a bit wintery here I reach for a cuppa and I am reminded that one of the wonderful things about having tea is that there is always time for a par-tea! I’m not a tea aficionado but love the stuff because it is a no fuss drink all you have to do…

Glamping in the Yard

Since we couldn’t go on holiday we brought the holiday to us, sort of, by getting reacquainted with the great outdoors in our very own backyard without forgoing any creature comforts.
