How beautiful is a bluebell wood? A carpet of purple and a real sign of Spring. Did you know almost half the world’s bluebells are found in the UK? They can take years to recover from footfall damage so enjoy the purple spectacle from the path and take care not to trample.


My brother and his partner have started collecting vintage action men and Cindy dolls. Yes we’re a quirky family! But did anyone else have Havoc? A Mary Quant doll that came with a motorbike and a machine gun!!

‘South Africa on Sunday revealed plans to ban the breeding of lions in captivity for trophy hunting or for tourists to pet.’ Woke up to this news. My partner filmed the doc ‘Bloodlions’. So proud that it helped to make a difference.
