Somerset Calling: Strummer of Love

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Last weekend I went to my first proper festival and now I think I get it. OK, we didn’t camp, but we did get arse-deep in mud, bounced around to some amazing bands, got acquainted with the festival portaloo experience (the only chance to sit down in 12 hours) and discovered the joys of a tech-free weekend*.

A Staycation at the Sanderson

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl


Oh boy, wasn’t summer a bundle of laughs? Rain, riots, recession woes, more rain. And a packed schedule meant no holiday in sight. Thank God for the Sanderson Hotel then, who eased my pain somewhat by inviting me on an overnight ‘staycation’. Continue reading
