Moor Please!

Moor Please!

Haytor

This is the last of my holidays posts, which makes me super sad. They’ve been really fun to write and allowed me to think back on what a wonderful time we had, although it went by in a flash within a very busy few weeks! We had a lot of fun on every day trip and at every place we visited, but I think I’ve saved the best til last, although it was a close fought thing! On our anniversary, which was whilst we were in Devon, we spent the day up on Dartmoor and I can’t describe how truly happy I am when I’m there.

There’s something about the Moor that calms me, makes me feel like I belong nowhere else and brings a sense of peace over me that I don’t really find anywhere else. It brings back a wealth of childhood memories and makes me marvel at the natural world. Dartmoor will forever be where I long to go back to time and again. From driving around the narrow roads along the banks of the Dart, to the wide-open views from the tops of the tors, there’s something beautiful to see at every turn. I love the feel of walking across the soft, springy grass near the banks of the rivers and streams just as much as I love scrambling up the rocks and stomping through the pine forests.

It’s an idea shamelessly stolen from another blogger, I’ll admit but in the spirit of imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, it’s an idea I really like and want to replicate for myself.

Spring is on the horizon

This weekend was the one where everyone has some kind of panic about not having enough sleep as the clocks go forwards but y’know what, I’m probably the one person who loves this weekend because hello lighter evenings and spring.

Yes we lose an hour of sleep and yes, I’m sleep’s number 1 fan but y’know in the grand scheme of things 1 hour isn’t too much. It won’t be the first time any of us have got 1 hour of sleep less than we intended and it’s likely not to be the last either so chill your beans people, we’ve all survived Sunday relatively unscathed without that extra hours sleep (I think, I’m not on social media at the moment so not really keeping up with too much but none of my closest friends have reported sleep-deprived accidents so far).
