Lately, I’ve seen a few people popping up on my social media feeds with the hashtag 100happydays. Intrigued, I looked it up and discovered I’m about 3 years (ok, it is now 2018 I guess… 4 years) late to the game on this one. Basically, it does what it says on the tin. Each day… Continue reading 100 happy days
When my sister and her partner visted in December (did I mention we went to see Mogwai and it was amazing?) we made plans to meet up when I was next in Leeds and visit one of their favourite restaurants, Bundobust.

However, I will do… Continue reading December roundup
