One line a day. I made my blog as my little space. My place to get away and share the things I enjoy and love. There are some who have been so brave and utilises this space for something other than themselves.

STAY SAFE CAMPING IN THE LAKES WITH HALFORDS*

I was fortunate to have been brought up in one of the most stunning parts of the country. That is the Lake District.

It is a shame as now the older I am the less I camp. In fact, I cannot remember the last time…

This often plays with my mood and the people around me end up with either a hyper sensitive and grumpy Lola or a high energy one powering through exhaustion.

WHEN THE HEALTH SERVICES DON’T HAVE THE CAPACITY TO LOOK AFTER YOUR MENTALITY!

When you experience problems with your mental health, you expect to be provided with the care and support that you need to help you get well again.
