We’re back…. What we’ve been up to during a busy second half of 2018

After a really busy few months, we’re back and ready to start presenting you with content again! This is what we’ve been up to since we last posted.

We’ve moved!!

This is the big one, the one that took up the most of our time; we’ve moved into our first home! We put an offer on a house back in January of this year and finally, after lots of back and forth and complications, got the keys in July.

The house itself wasn’t in the best of states when we moved in. It had been empty for over a year so it needed lots of TLC – the adventures just had to stop for a little bit whilst painting took over our lives. We wouldn’t change it though and we absolutely love our little house!

We joined a photography group

We have been focusing in on our love of photography and joined a photography group. We’ve found this to be really beneficial and has taken us out of our comfort zones more than once.

The group we attend holds ‘themes’ throughout the month with everyone taking and submitting a picture which is then displayed in a local cafe at a forestry centre.

Here’s a couple of pictures we’ve taken:

A photography gig…or two

We’ve been lucky to work with a local Brewery, Church End, on multiple events with them. We’ve photographed a craft & food fair in the pouring rain (fortunately the event was mostly moved inside), a classic car show and even a music and cider festival.

We will be continuing to provide photography at events at Church End Brewery so watch this space for more!

A holiday to Cornwall

After falling in love with Cornwall on holiday last year, we returned again for a week in the summer…this time in a tent!

Of all the weeks we could have chosen and the gorgeous weather we had in the UK over the summer period, we had to pick the one where it was rainy and a bit grim at points! However, we made the most of it and enjoyed our week; we made the most of any good weather strolling along the beaches, we visit the Cornish Seal Sanctuary and spent some time in a very local pub. We’ll definitely be back there again and hopefully, share it with you all.

Local days out

We’ve managed to squeeze in a few local days out to various places including; Twycross Zoo, Middleton Hall, Ashbourne, Chatsworth house, National Memorial Arboretum to name but a few.

We look forward to going back to a few of these, and more in the coming months and into 2019 and sharing the experiences with you.

Going forward

Going forward, we’re planning to continue blogging our adventures with you and we’re currently looking into a schedule that will work for us. We also hope to post some ‘behind the scenes’ blogs looking at how to make the most of your local area and other helpful travel tips.

We’re also going to be doing some redesign work here on the Hannah and Liam present blog, and also our Facebook and Instagram so keep your eyes peeled.

We’re really looking forward to getting back out there, especially in the run-up to Christmas. If there’s anywhere you think we should visit leave us a comment down below or on our Facebook page and we’ll take a look.
