Hello February, how lovely to see you! Find out what’s coming up over the next few weeks here on SallyAkins.com
Yet again I’m left wondering where a whole month has gone. On the one hand, January feels as if it lasts forever, especially when there’s too much month left at the end of the money. But on the other hand, it feels as if you blink and the first month of the year is over.
When I was picking an image for this post, I couldn’t resist choosing a photo of gorgeous red roses. After all if you can’t use a photo like this in February, when can you? If you like this image, I’ve created desktop and mobile versions that you can download and use as wallpapers. You’ll find them at the bottom of this post, I hope you like them!
So in February, I’m paying a visit to a hotel in North Wales with a reputation for the great quality of its food. Then later this month I’m heading off to the beautiful Cotswolds, where Mark and I will be staying in two cosy hotels, and I’ll be reviewing them here on the blog afterwards. We’ll also be looking around this picturesque area and I’ll be sharing some of my favourite things to do in the Cotswolds.
I’ll also be popping into one of my favourite Midlands towns – Stratford upon Avon. I last visited in 2018 on a Mystery Tour with National Holidays, but this time I’m heading there to see what you can do on a day trip to Stratford.
I’ll also be sharing details of my visits to the National Wallace Monument and the Kelpies from my visit to Scotland last November. And if you’re thinking of visiting the historic Shropshire town of Ironbridge this year, I’ll be suggesting some of the best things to do in Ironbridge as well.
Last month I shared some ideas for how you can make a positive change in your life, as part of my work with Femal. And later this month I’ll be running a fantastic giveaway where you can try Femal for yourself – look out for more details on that soon. And I’ll be posting my favourite packing list suggestions for those of you lucky enough to be heading off for some winter sun.
