Welcome back to my seventh Meet a Devon Blogger interview series.
Firstly tell us a bit about yourself and your blog?
My blog is all about the places we go and things we do in Exeter, Devon and the South West. It is full of pictures, parenting stories, interviews, cool places to visit, food, theatre, music reviews and lots, lots more. I also have a variety of bloggers who regularly contribute to my blog and these days I like to think of it as more of a blogzine
Why did you decide to start a blog and how long has it be running?
In September 2015 (two months after moving to Exeter) we lost our baby Rudi at 22 weeks and I fell into a deep depression, I was self employed and I had given up my clients in Croydon to focus on family, so I had nothing to do work-wise, I had to start from scratch but I wasn’t ready.
Creating my blog in the spring of 2016 gave me something (outside of parenting) to focus on. Documenting all the amazing places we were visiting and sharing happy stories helped to bring me back to life. I have really enjoyed creating it.
How long have you lived in Devon?
We moved here in July 2015.
Name 3 of your favourite places for a day out in Devon?
We love The Milky Way when we have friends with kids visiting, it keeps them busy all day! Fingle Bridge is absolutely beautiful for walks and visits to Castle Drogo and I love Ness Cove. We saw a pod of dolphins there on a bright Autumnal day after we moved here, and the moment has stayed with me.
Of course, it goes without saying we love a day out in Exeter (can I have four?) RAMM is one of my fav places to hang out with the kids, the library is amazing, theatres, food… it’s got it all!
Name 3 of your favourite places to eat?
What do you love about living in Devon?
I love that we have everything on our doorstep; the English Riviera, the Jurassic Coast, Dartmoor. We have cities, villages, beaches and countryside. The people (for the most part) are lovely, the kids get to grow up in a beautiful place and the air is cleaner.
