Vegan Valencia

If you know me well then you will know how much I enjoyed the city of Valencia last year.  July 2017 I took my Husband to Valencia for his 30th Birthday, I wanted to choose somewhere sunny & hot, a country not too far away and also a place which had plenty to do and more importantly plenty of vegan food to eat! 

We stayed there for 5 days and It was a beautifully vibrant place. Apart from Craig being pretty sick for the first couple of days we had a great trip! This did however give me a whole day on my own, so of course I wondered around taking photo after photo, quite possibly looking like a mad English tourist (we actually didn't spot many tourists, I think this made the city even more awesome and unique). I felt really awful for Craig, he really was not well! But hey, there is always some kind of silver lining? A day to myself in a fab place, being able to stop and snap away without having to run and catch up again and again, bliss!
I strolled around little streets full o…

Whenever I finish watching a really good film or TV show I always want to shout my views from the roof tops and make other people watch it, probably in the hope that they will watch it and also love it...maybe even love it for the same reasons.

Yes, I know I need to go to sleep at more reasonable hours, but then I would miss out on valuable viewing time and that is most certainly a valid reason for nearly fal…

2017 comes to an end

What a strange year!
It so so true what your parents say, each year goes by quicker and quicker than the last.
2017 has certainly flown by, so much so I didn't even see where December went.

I have been pretty busy this year, in January I left my previous job at a Gaming company to head back to Broad Lane Vets as a receptionist. Good move, however the vets is busier than ever! But it is a great team there, and being in a job where I am able to help others (animals and their owners) can only be a good thing. I ended up personally helping a few more small furries than I had intended to!




Amongst keeping in touch with friends and family, playing many a board games with Husband and crew and taking photos, I also did my first bit of activism in 2017 and met some amazing people at West Midlands Connection.
I first met the guys back in January (god love Facebook) and my first time with them involved handing out leaflets on the street in the pouring rain and trying to advertise Veganism, …
