We chose the Jurys Inn, Plymouth as it was close to the shopping centre and all other amenities. My two…

Autumn in August?

I know everyone is moaning about the weather but seriously is it autumn in August? It doesn’t feel right donning my Chelsea boots, check shirt and jacket, I love this attire but not during summer. We had plans to visit Haldon Forest today and go to the Orange Elephant for ice creams and a stroll through the meadow but we…
