My son has recently taken up hiking, my sister and her husband have also completed some amazing hikes, last year they spent several months completing the Thames Path. But whenever I mention I'd like to take up hiking, my family laugh at me.  Okay on the surface that seems unkind but they know I am a fairweather walker, preferring to bimble for 30 minutes and then get a cup of tea!  A couple of years ago a friend encouraged me to join her for a walk at Cliveden, I loved it but I was exhausted, I couldn't keep up with her hiking pace.  But I have completed hikes on fitness weekend ..read more

My daughter and I found ourselves with a small window of opportunity for an early spring break back in March.  We knew it was a bit soon in the season for a short haul guaranteed sun holiday but as we were keen to get some down time we didn't want to do a full on city break either.  We spent hours researching different options!  How long does holiday planning take?!  We were super keen on Italy but Sorrento (our first choice) doesn't really open up for tourists until Easter.  Finally we settled on Cádiz in Spain ... we booked our flights, found an Airbnb with an outsid ..read more

We are just back from a week in , these two neighbouring ski resorts in the Portes du Soleil area of the French Alps are our favourite place to ski, it's where we all learnt to ski and where we keep going back to!  In fact apart from one ski holiday in Austria, we've not ever skied anywhere else!  After a break of 6 years with no skiing due to the travel restrictions of the pandemic, we were feeling a little nervous and had forgotten some of the details that make a ski holiday work.  Skiing at this time of year can be hot, weather conditions are variable, with a mixture of sunny ..read more

They say you should get your colours analysed regularly, ideally every 5-15 years because as we age our colouring becomes softer, we have less contrast to our skin and even the pigment in our eyes and lips can change.  I've been feeling very insecure recently, having grown in confidence in my early 50s, the last 6-12 months I seem to have completely lost my sense of style and happiness in who I am and my confidence along with it.  I've gone from (mostly) loving my wardrobe, to hating it!  I am also fed up with online shopping due to too many deliveries and constant returns.  ..read more
