What I’ve Been Up To Lately

As you have probably gathered from all the blog content and social media activity, the last couple of months have been jam-packed full of events. Not that I’m complaining, I like keeping busy, but earlier in June it started to feel like I couldn’t keep up. Aside from blogging duties, there were also several birthdays, a hen do, an anniversary and a wedding to contend with… it was too much. At the end of May I promised myself I would take a step back from doing too much in June and July, in order to recharge my batteries and look after myself. Fast forward a couple of weeks and I’ve already made plans to go to three events and a festival – I’m my own worst enemy! I’m really excited to have these opportunities though and that I get to share them with you, whether it inspires or motivates you to do something a little bit different. Put the kettle on, as I recap what I’ve been up to lately and what you can look forward to coming up in and around the Cotswolds…

A Weekend at Wychwood Festival

Two festivals in a week – I wasn’t joking in my last post when I said that festival season was upon us!

Mello Festival 2019

Festival season is upon us! The Cotswolds is home to a variety of fantastic festivals – from Cheltenham Festival (horse racing) and Cheltenham Festivals (Jazz, Science, Music and Literature), to The Big Feastival, we are really spoilt for choice. One festival I hadn’t come across before though was Mello, a family friendly festival based near Worcester. I was kindly invited to go along for the day, so with my best friend in tow, we made our way to Mello Festival…

An Unforgettable Dinner at Pundits in Cheltenham

In over six years of blogging, I’ve been lucky to attend many launch parties and reviewed a lot of local restaurants, but this event was one of the most memorable of them all. 

I was kindly invited to the grand opening of Pundits, a new Indian restaurant to Cheltenham, with the expectation of dining with local journalists and bloggers. Instead, we were seated on a table with the Mayor of Cheltenham and his lovely wife, the owner of Pundits and Gordon Ramsay *ahem* – with a feast of delicious Asian cuisine.

Wellington Sunday at The Lygon Arms

For me, Sundays have always been about spending the day with loved ones and taking trips out to different corners of the Cotswolds. There are three key elements to what makes up my perfect Sunday – adventure, lots of laughter and plenty of good food and drink. Not necessarily a roast, but if you are looking for somewhere a little bit special that can offer delicious food and beautiful setting, let me tell you about Wellington Sunday at The Lygon Arms in Broadway.

A Weekend at The Fleece in Witney

It was the perfect time to escape somewhere new, somewhere neither of us had been before, somewhere we could relax. January brought the flu and February brought a busy social schedule, so as soon as March sprung I couldn’t wait to escape Cheltenham for a weekend at The Fleece in Witney…
