Wales. It's a beautiful place, isn't it? Miles and miles of beautiful rolling hills punctuated with epic summits, cwms (is that the correct plural for 'cwm'?) and long sloping ridges; dotted between are a few jewel-like lakes that look like small puddles in a giant's playground. This weekend was supposed to be about relaxing, a … Continue reading The Walk That Nearly Broke Me.
It's been a busy few weeks with lots of culture and funtimes! Firstly, a trip to Kelmscott Manor in the depths of the Cotswolds, home of the great man himself, William Morris. This trip felt a bit like a pilgrimage, to the home of a man I'd only read about in art history books. I … Continue reading Pilgrimage to Kelmscott Manor
*KLAXON* FOOD PORN ALERT. If you don't like looking at photos of food, then I suggest you leave now. This week has been somewhat unusual in that I had quite a few meals out. Contrary to popular belief, I don't eat out half as often as I used to/people think I do. This is a … Continue reading Good Eats – a week in the life of #ConnieEats

Both my physical and mental health has had a lot to do with the frequency and duration of my migraines so I'm going to … Continue reading Migraine in the Membrane – #ConnieTalks #MentalHealthAwarenessWeek
That time I invented Lemon Quiche.
This weekend, it was all about making stuff. As I mentioned in my previous post, the brilliant Steve and Zoe of the Dual Works ran their first Girls with Power Tools workshop and I was lucky enough to be one of the participants. It was a great to have a refresher on my still relatively-new DIY … Continue reading I MADE THIS!
This weekend was Bank Holiday weekend, so along with 95% of the population in the UK I went to my local DIY store and panic-bought a load of stuff with the intention of spending this weekend DIY-ing. I was sticking to #BasicBitchDIY this weekend because I had a social life. I've learnt to hoard all the … Continue reading #GIRLSWHODIY – Easter Bank Holiday Edition
Two Cats Kitchen is definitely in my top 5 dining experiences, like, ever. The food there makes me squeal with delight (quite literally); the textures and flavours are so unexpected (yet obvious at the same time), each mouthful is a little morsel of joy. With a 7-course taster menu, that's a lot of little morsels. The … Continue reading Good Eats – Two Cats Kitchen
This week's post was supposed to be about my delicious visit to The Two Cats. However, I experienced some mild peril that I feel I need to talk about. Last week on the way back from the depths of Wolverhampton, I had a small traffic accident. This small accident cost me my car, known endearingly … Continue reading Goodbye Flo.
