The village that has no car access, a steep cobbled main street, donkeys and views over the Bristol Channel, #Clovelly is a secluded fishing village full of quintessentially quaint views for the hordes of tourists that visit it.

Winter snowfall and old buildings ✨
I can imagine the city as it was years ago from this angle, without the horrific cranes on every corner and sky high extortionate student flats. Ew.
I can imagine people scurrying by with their heads down, preparing to work in the cotton mills whilst paper boys in waistcoats and shorts shout about the latest news. Happy Wednesday! ❄️ #snowinmanchester

Roll on the weekend, when I can be in the snowy hills. My favourite place. 💙❄️🏔
Who has seen snow this winter? It snowed here in Hertfordshire yesterday but it’s all gone this morning!

Magdalen College, established in 1458, has cloisters with wisteria that are imbued with a fairytale-like quality. Whilst exploring the numerous colleges of Oxford (many dating to pre-1600), I feel a sense of wonder and awe, imagining all of the past illustrious figures who also walked the halls.
As a history buff, I am constantly in a sense of veneration and awe. In my year here as an MBA student @oxfordsbs , there is simply not enough time to learn all of the history, but one can attempt to scratch the surface!

“Don’t you know that everybody’s got a Fairyland of their own?” - Mary Poppins
I saw Mary Poppins Returns yesterday, and I know this is basically swearing but I actually preferred it to the original (although I absolutely adore Julie Andrews and Dick Van Dyke). Maybe it’s because I’m older I understand the concept of the film much better, although I haven’t really figured out whether I think the magic is real or if Mary Poppins just likes to nurture imagination (I haven’t read the original books).
If you haven’t seen it already, the film takes you through a journey through London’s dark, oldy worldy streets. And as I’ve mentioned before, I think I’m a Victorian reincarnated so seeing London all smoky, old and narrow is almost as good as the smell of freshly cut grass or fresh apple pie. I’m completely aware the majority of it was actually filmed in a studio in Shepperton, but it still doesn’t stop me you dreaming of what London was like 100 years ago (almost).
I honestly think I would have been either a baker or a chimney sweep... I’m not sure which. Then I would find a man (hopefully Alex if he was also able to travel back to Victorian England), get married, and buy a house in the country, like this one. I’d make him mow the lawn and bake me banana bread whilst I walked from village to village painting pictures of cottages and flowers.
That’s the life hey? Ignoring the fact that the Victorian times were also fairly smelly....
Dreaming of these magical wintery scenes as the weather here today is crazy (see my stories!!).. And we’re meant to be shearing all week but that’s going to have to be postponed after today because of all the rain we’re having!! 😬 Not what we’d hoped for in the middle of January!!! 😩

Non si può non conoscere questo punto😊 È di certo il più instagrammato di Notting Hill!
La soddisfazione mentre entri in questa via è grandissima 😍
Quale casetta preferite? Io senza dubbio quella viola 🤤
Good morning from Edinburgh, Scotland 🏴 where in the world are you right now?
I’m actually not in Scotland contrary to what my Instagram looks like right now. Currently in Houston and then making my way back the west coast!
I’m sure you’ve all seen 🏰 Alnwick Castle 🏰 before in some movies 😱😊

We stopped at Stow on the Wold for breakfast on Friday when we were driving to Worcestershire. I have only been during summer or autumn so it was nice to see it a little less busy! I finally got a chance to find the famous door at St Edwards Church 🌳😍 Alex and I were joined by a squirrel and no one else 🐿
This door, framed by yew trees, dates back to the 17th century but masks 13th century moulding. The church dates back to the 11th or 12th century in parts and stands on the site of the original Saxon church that was made of wood.
I definitely think there could be fairies living around here 🧚♀️ when I was younger my mum bought me a video (lol, before DVD’s were a thing...) about fairies. It was about these girls who had them living at the bottom of their garden and it was called ‘Fairytale, A True Story’. I genuinely then believed fairies were real because even when I was 6 I knew that false advertisement was illegal. Therefor, if fairies weren’t really then they couldn’t put ‘A True Story’ in the title could they?
So the moral of today is: Fairies are real 🍄🧚♀️✨
