Life's a Beach! Etsy List curated by H is for Home

Did you know that we have our own little beach in Todmorden? Yes, we’re nowhere near the coast, but it’s an inland beach of sorts… and almost 800ft up!

If it’s mid-week, sunny summer’s day, you can go for a half an hour’s walk (or mountain bike) up to Gaddings Dam and, if you’re lucky, you can get the beach all to yourself. You can take a picnic or even do a spot of wild swimming!

'Caribbean Cuisine' Etsy List curated by H is for Home

Much as I love Chinese, Indian, Thai and Italian food, the one closest to my heart is Caribbean cuisine. The sight & smell of it bring back such sweet memories – pastelles, sorrel and black cake at Christmas; ripe, pungent mangoes in the summer; pelau, callaloo and macaroni pie on a Sunday; roti, buss-up-shot, pholourie and doubles were my kind of fast food… I could go on and one!

It’s Caribbean Food Week next week, so of course I’ll have to rustle something up in celebration.

'Shooting stars' Etsy List curated by H is for HomeThe next few days will be the best time to see the most spectacular shooting stars of the year! The Perseid meteor shower passes the earth every year in July or August. If the sky is dark with little cloud you’ll be able to see 60-100 shooting stars per hour. The best time to look out for them is just before dawn on Friday the 14th when there’ll be a new moon. Just gaze up at the sky in a north-easterly direction.

Here’s hoping for cloudless skies and the ability to stay up a little bit later then usual! :-)
