At the end of November we took a little trip to Ludlow in Shropshire, to visit the lovely Fishmore Hall Hotel and try out their brand new Spa. Fishmore Hall is a privately-owned boutique country house hotel overlooking the town of Ludlow, with lovely views over the Shropshire countryside.

Mauritius is a French speaking island in the Indian Ocean, off… View Post

I have been travelling quite a bit lately, especially to London, and I’ve taken Ava with me on my own a couple of times. The thought of travelling by train and on the tube terrified me at first, and I don’t think I would have even done it a year ago, but now I feel like I have got to the place where I can relax about it a bit and enjoy our day together instead of dreading what she… View Post
