) I do love pointing out all the creepy crawlies and small flying creatures to Mr V. who would otherwise charge up the mountain oblivious. I studied biology and zoology units at university and truly loved those subjects (that is, until I had to dissect a cockroach for a practical). Despite

During one such trip she attended a local barn dance and promptly fell in love with a local man. A long distance romance ensued until, at the age of forty two, she fell pregnant and decided to move over permanently. She now also works doing what she loves, running a cosmetics business using...

She still loves her colourful clothes though and is often to be found wearing brightly coloured pieces like this fabulous coat. Though these days she's able to treat herself to some proper bling! Step outside the Royal Exchange and turn left to Cornhill. Turn right for the real Bank of...

It was a present to him from his mother, who happens to be the owner of a rather lovely, upmarket clothing boutique. This blanket has been kicking around our flat for years on sofas and on the bed. Recently it got relegated to the car boot as an emergency source of warmth in winter should we...

There are many things I love about the South of France. Here the people enjoy a very laid back lifestyle where everything stops for lunch and a siesta. I especially love French pharmacies as they are packed with wonderful, local brand beauty products. Our first port of call is usually a...

I saw it in a vintage clothing store in Bath and it was love at first sight! I wore it incessantly at one point, and took it with me when I went to live in Spain where it somehow looked at home, like a cousin of the richly embroidered shawls worn by the Andalusian women to attend wedding...
