Review: Discovering my ancestry with Living DNA

Have you ever wondered where you come from? I have always had an intrinsic interest in my family history. I’ve spent hours, days even, scouring genealogy sites. I’ve put together a huge family tree and learnt a lot about my ancestry. Whilst in parts I’ve got back as far as the 13th century, I still have a thirst for knowledge. I particularly want to know more about my mum’s side of the family, as common surnames have made tracing back very difficult. DNA ancestry tests have really intrigued me since I first found out about them. Everything I’ve found out so far shows my ancestors in England, Wales, Ireland and Germany. As such, I’ve been curious to find out whether my ancestors have always remained in this part of the globe, as they have been for the last few hundred years. Thanks to Living DNA, I now have some answers! View Post

It’s a similar story when it comes to jewellery. When an email arrived in my inbox from Muru jewellery I went to have a peek at their site, sceptical about whether there were many pieces I would like. So, what was my verdict? View Post

Three days exploring Cornwall with a toddler

Three days exploring Cornwall with a toddler

At the end of August, we squeezed a little holiday to Cornwall in. We wanted to surprise my family and kept costs down by camping. This was a little nerve-wracking, as it was Autumn’s first time camping and we were approximately a 7 hour drive from home! We were only there for three days, but we managed to pack a lot into them!
