I did it!

Yes, I did it! I took a gigantic leap into the unknown and moved from Blogger to self-hosted WordPress and so far I’m loving it! It was a long and difficult journey but my beautiful new home is more than worth the stress. Blogger was a fantastic platform for dipping my toes into the blogging waters but I think WordPress is where I can really let my blog grow.

Valentine’s night at The Distillery

So for Valentine’s day me and Jordan decided to go out for a meal on Saturday night instead of actual Valentine’s night.

I read a fantastic blog post by one of my favourite bloggers, Olivia, about The Distillery in Derby so we decided to go and try it ourselves. You can read Olivia’s post here. First impressions were good. We’d never noticed the place before as it’s set back from the road behind the church…
