“We live at the edge of the miraculous.” {Henry Miller} ~ Higgledy-piggledy townhouses perched by the river’s edge. City living but surrounded by nature. That’s the dream really, isn’t it? Happy new week all! 🏡🌿

(AD) I started @theslowtraveler in 2015 at the beginning of a two-year adventure that circled India (poorly planned), meandered through Southeast Asia (pinballed about illogically), stalled for some time in Spain (got too lazy, stayed too long), and finished with a country-hopping trip from Los Angeles to Patagonia (poorly planned, pinballing, lazy). I lived out of two-piece backpack known as The Bug Bag. This thing was a monster, bigger than me, held together with string and tape. ⠀ But I loved the freedom. I loved not knowing where I'd be next week, never mind next month. I loved seeing new places, talking to cool people, learning. I still love those things. But I think differently about travel now. Travel, I thought, was about distance and time – going farther, going longer. That meant, weirdly, I'd visited more places in India than I had in England, that I'd spent more time in Bolivia than I had in Scotland (I'm half-Scottish!). ⠀ I've been trying to put things right by travelling closer to home. Last week, we roadtripped coast to coast, east to west… These days, I'm kitted out with some nifty luggage from @away I've got The Carry-On and The Backpack – Lenny's got The Kids’ Carry-On. They look dead cool – which is important to vain, vain Lenny – but I like their toughness. The Away cases come with a lifetime guarantee. No string or tape needed! ⠀ The coast-to-coast trip was as poorly planned, pinballing, and lazy as ever. But here's what I've realised: travel an hour from home in any direction, and you see new places, you talk to cool people, and you learn. It might not be Los Angeles to Patagonia, but, for me, it's that same feeling of freedom. #travelaway

Found my new happy place today 🌻🌻🌻. What could be better than having all of my boys off for a Edinburgh public holiday and the sun shining? 12 sunflowers I could pick and cut myself for £3.50, that’s what 😜. You’ll be pleased to know I left some behind for everyone else 😆. Hope you’ve had a lovely Monday 🌻 #itsprimupnorth

Good god- Whatever moving nightmare you want, this time, I got it: bird shit on my hand when opening the boot, car so full that the rear window is a long-lost memory, so much money gone, things lost, plants broken, toilet *blocked*, lights not working, I’ve got a cold that makes men sound charming, but for my first week of teaching, I just sounded like I’m 5 - it has been a week to remember (or to forget?), but then again- my favourite supervisor called me ‘his little achiever’ today, so I’ve almost forgotten it all. But I’m gonna drive to sit on some cliffs tonight nonetheless. * * * #postcardplaces #great_wide_somewhere #loveletterto #englishheritage #ofquietadventures #wanderluster #shesnotlost #thatauthenticfeeling #whimsicalwonderfulwild #thisprettyengland #distractionsandinspirations #bestofourshire #godsowncounty #chooselovely #neverstopwandering #visityorkshire #chasing_facades #myeverydaymagic #asecondofwhimsy #loveletterto #wearenorthern #neverstopwandering #shesnotlost #prettylittletrips #northernsea #itsprimupnorth #quietinthewild #robinhoodsbay

St Brandon’s Church ⛪️ . This is the ‘Paradise Window’. Isn’t it stunning? After a fire ripped through the building in 1998, much of the inside was destroyed. It’s now got a more modern feel to it, so this gorgeous window fits in really well 🌼

Here's a final reminder of how to get involved in next weekend's Sheepfest Trail plus where to bring your completed sheep. Step 1 Let us know you're joining the flock by emailing project.manager @sedbergh.org.uk Step 2 Create your weather proof sheep Step 3 Bring your completed sheep to St Andrews Churchyard on Wednesday 18th September between 8am and 6pm. Please do be mindful of the fact that it is a churchyard when positioning your sheep. . . . #visitsedbergh #Sedbergh #visitengland #visitbritain #mybritainwithlove #thisprettyengland #exploreengland #greatdaysout #prettylittletrips #gloriousyorkshire #welcometoyorkshire #exploremore #northernengland #itsprimupnorth #photosofbritain #scenicbritain #omgb #littlepiecesofbritain #sedberghsheepfest #sheepfest #sedberghsheepfest2019 #allthingssheep #welovesheep

Just wanted to do a quick shout out to Katie from @beautifulhomesinthenorth who does all our photography which we absolutely love. One of the great things about running our own small indie business is the relationships and friendships we’ve developed with so many creatives across the North East. And that includes the artists whose fabulous products we stock as well as Ash who does our sign writing ( @ash_willerton) and Julie who did amazing things designing Corbridge ( @juliechambersinteriordesign) and who we continue to enjoy working with. There’s so much amazing North East talent out there and we are thrilled to be inspired by the creativity we are able to immerse ourselves in. ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #lovewhatwedo #northeasttalent #northeastengland #smallindiebusiness #shopsmall #shopsmallbusiness #campaignshopsmall #shoplocal #justacard #indiebiz #queen #cityhallnewcastle#welovenortheast #lovenorth #loveofthenorth #northeastgifts #northeastcards#northeastprints #geordiegifts #northerners #lovethenortheast #northeastcreatives #thisisMINE #mynorthernniche #itsprimupnorth

I love an old cobbled street! Not to drive on. My car has stiff suspension so driving on cobbles is not fun. Looks pretty though! This is in Honley, a village just outside Holmfirth, which has some really quaint spots. Parts of the village date to the 1600s! #mytinyatlas #lovegreatbritain #guardiantravelsnaps #englishcountryside #persuepretty #seetoshare #britains_talent #photosofbritain #photosofengland #postitfortheaesthetic #icu_britain #ilove_simplebeyond #abmlifeisbeautiful #visitengland #momentslikethese #searchwandercollect #itsprimupnorth #takemethere #barnweddingvenue #honley #visityorkshire #villagelife #countrylife #welcometoyorkshire #yorkshirecountryside #landscapephotography #weekendwanders

Got that Sunday night dread feeling I used to get growing up, before school on a Monday. Only difference is, it’s Oscar going to school now - not me! Feels so strange not having him around with Eva and I, and last week I missed him A LOT! We’ll all get used to it. Just need to find our new normal. We’ve had such a lovely weekend together though ❤️ for sure, from here on in weekends really are everything 😍 hope you’ve all had a gorgeous one too xx {photo from our family shoot with the brilliant @lauracarlyadams}

We used to walk a lot. You’d say it was good for our hearts but I was just there for the memories. One day I tripped and fell for you and you turned and walked away. If we could go back and do it again, would you offer your hand?

BEDS AND BORDERS #mygardenthismonth day 15 I’m making the most of our borders while they last. It’s going to feel so bare when the dahlias and herbaceous perennials die back. 😭 Meanwhile, down at the allotment, we’ve spent a couple of hours today marking out our beds. Allowing for decent sized paths to get a wheelbarrow down, we’ve got three beds measuring 4ft x 27ft. I’m not sure we’re going to be able to use all of it in the first year - especially since we’ve now taken on the adjacent plot too (mainly for cut flowers) - but we’ll give it a good go! Next step: getting a load of manure down and covering everything with weed-proof fabric over the winter reading for planting in the spring! 🌱💚 #urbancottage #myhousethismonth #periodhome #myperiodhomestyle #gardeninspiration #cottagegarden #countrygarden #englishgarden #gardensofinstagram #allotmentsofinstagram #growyourown #firsttimeallotmentowner #vegpatch #ilfautcultivernotrejardin #itsprimupnorth

Another day in the capital, another @hendricksgin pop-up. I didn't hear about this one until it was sold out but I'm sure it would have been magical. They really do go all out. My favourite was the Emporium of Sensorial Submersion during the 2015 Edinburgh Festival. I wish they would come back for the festival and take over more townhouses. Remember when they used to set up in Royal Circus? I must look out the photos. 🍸 🍸 🍸 🍸 🍸 #hendricksportals #hendricksgin #ItsPrimUpNorth #Ginstagram #GinLovers #Ginoclock #GinOfTheDay #Loves_Edinburgh #ThisIsEdinburgh #EdinburghStory #PrettyEdinburgh #EdinburghArchitecture #UnveiledEdinburgh #UnlimitedEdinburgh #AllThePrettyCities #PrettyCity #FacadeLovers #TouristInMyOwnCity #VisitScotland #LoveScotland #ScotlandInsta #ScotlandExplore #WonderlustScotland #Travelling_UK #Travel_Drops #HiddenScotland

A total impromptu visit to Blackpool turned out to be the best day ever. Yesterday @mkr568 @faye.l.rich Niki and I headed to the @pleasure_beach it’s such a great day out.

🍁🍂💫 Sheffield Streets // Managed to explore a bit more of Sheffield this week - heading to Kelham Island for pizza. I really love the old business signs from the days it was the industrial quarter & how the place has been given a new lease of life whilst still giving nods back to it’s manufacturing days. About to make some bacon sarnies to kick start Sunday, hope you’re having a nice relaxing one! #kelham #kelhamisland #sheffield #citystreets #itsprimupnorth #ghostsigns #brickseek #michaelachatssheffield #yorkshire #onefromthearchive #sheffieldstreets #momentsofmine #autumn #september

Have to admit we’re still just a little bit Elmer obsessed. Partly because what’s not to love about Elmer anyway? Partly because we are LOVING discovering new artists and seeing the amazing artwork they’ve done and how different all the Elmer’s are. But mostly because they promote the work of the amazing @stoswaldsuk and continue to raise awareness of the fabulous work they do. You might have noticed we’re donating 5% of all profits from our FTLOTN pin badges to St Oswalds. We’re hoping that’s just the start and are enjoying collaborating with @ebonynewtondesign who is busy designing a FTLOTN tote bag which again we’ll be donating 5% of all profits from to St Oswalds. In the meantime we hope you’re enjoying the Elmer’s as much as we are!⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #stoswalds #stoswaldshospice #greatnorthelmer #elmer #newcastle #newcastleupontyne #ne1 #getintonewcastle#discowilbur #natalieguymosaics #northeastengland#welovenortheast #lovenorth #loveofthenorth #northeastgifts #northeastcards#northeastprints #northerners #lovethenortheast #northeastcreatives #thisisMINE #mynorthernniche #itsprimupnorth#smallindiebusiness #shopsmall #shopsmallbusiness #campaignshopsmall #shoplocal #justacard #indiebiz

A busy time of year for lots of friends and family as their teenage sons and daughters head off to start a new life at University. Wishing them all the very best in what I know will be some of the best years of their lives . Tissues at the ready. My 18 has deferred...so this time next year it will be our turn .

Beautiful Edinburgh views 💫 When we first moved to the UK we wondered what these "rippled" glass panels were, thinking there was some fancy purpose to them. Turns out they are just a leftover mark from the old way glass was manufactured. It used to be blown in a sphere and then cut off the blowing pipe and flattened out while still hot. This left a "bullseye" mark in one part of the sheet of glass. The other flatter, clearer parts would be sold to wealthier clients and the bullseye panel to less fussy ones. These days its often recreated just for a little old world charm. #funfact . . . . . ------ #roomwithaview #theprettycities #storiesfromscotland #hiddenscotland #itsprimupnorth #hiddenedinburgh #thisisedinburgh #unlimitededinburgh #edinburghlife #edinburghcity #visitedinburgh #exploreEdinburgh #simplyscotland #beautyyouseek #theconstantlycurious #instatravel #wheretofindme #ihavethisthingwithwindows #windowsoftheworld #thisjaneaustenlife #omgb #traveldeeper #letsgosomewhere #suitcasetravels #mytinyatlas #pathport #exploremore #edinburgholdtown

Whitby Abbey 📸 @historicalbritain "Perched on North Yorkshire coast cliffs and surrounded by the @northyorkmoors, Whitby Abbey is possibly the prettiest, most photograhic Abbeys in Britain today that can be viewed from miles around. Although visually beautiful, the ruins of Whitby Abbey really do possess the haunting element to them that its not hard to see why they helped inspire 'Bram Stoker' with his famous novel 'Dracula'. A new museum and visitors center was added this year just to make visiting that little bit more enjoyable. Whitby Abbey is currently owned and run by @englishheritage and entry although free to members, will cost you £9.80. A monastery was first founded here by St Hilda in the 7th century but unfortunately due to its wealth and location, by the 9th century it was abandoned following Viking raids. Monks however did return to the site and constructed a stone monastery in the 12th century. As the monastery gained wealth across the next century construction was began on the majestic gothic inspired Abbey you see the ruins of today which would take over 200 years to complete. In 1539, not long after the Abbey was finished, Whitby Abbey would become another victim of King Henry VIII's 'Suppression of the Monasteries' and it was destroyed to ruins, never to be restored again. . . . Fun Facts! • Whitby Abbey was declared a grade I listed building. •The Abbey was shelled by the German Navy during the 'First World War'. •Whitby is located at the end of the fantastic @northyorkshiremoorsrailway" #mybritain #capturingbritain #mytinyatlas #photosofengland #lovesgreatbritain #lovegreatbritain #thisprettyengland #visitbritain #visitengland #explore_britain #thisismykingdom #gloriousbritain #theprettycities #guardiantravelsnaps #icu_britain #photosofbritain #loves_united_england #wearenorthern #visityorkshire #bbcyorkshire #godsowncounty #itsprimupnorth #visitwhitby #whitby #northyorkmoors #northyorkshire #yorkshirecoast #whitbyabbey

One of the best things about going away is always coming back to a place we love so much. And coming back past the Angel is the icing on the cake. Iconic and still surprisingly controversial we absolutely love it. Unbelievably it was only last year that we visited it up close for the first time and were dwarfed by its magnificence. I think it’s fair to say we were even more impressed with it than previously. ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #angelofthenorth #gateshead #newcastlegateshead #newcastle #ne1 #newcastleupontyne #smallindiebusiness #shopsmall #shopsmallbusiness #campaignshopsmall #shoplocal #justacard #indiebiz #northeastengland#welovenortheast #lovenorth #loveofthenorth #northeastgifts #northeastcards#northeastprints #geordiegifts #northerners #lovethenortheast #northeastcreatives #thisisMINE #mynorthernniche #itsprimupnorth #getintonewcastle

The best 24 hours with these beauties for a flying visit to Edinburgh to celebrate @huntersandheels & @bobbibrownuk #bobbibrownxhuntersandheels launch! Best part is both collections had completely sold out online just a few hours after going on sale - before I even got there 😆🤩😍🙌🏻🥳 so it was champagne and kitchen dancing celebrations all round (swipe 🤪) @thislittlehouse’s (stunning!) abode last night before an early start and breakfast with the lovely @sarahlferguson_ and a visit and ‘How to’ lesson @bobbibrownuk’s super swish Edinburgh store! All the fun on my stories 🥳 Back home now with a sleeping Eva in my arms - the perfect end to such a happy, gorgeous day 😍

How do you feel about Friday the 13th? Is it a day you dread or is it just like any other? I’ve never worried about it, I’ve actually always found it quite funny listening to everyone explain why it’s so unlucky!! But how bad can it be, it’s a Friday...it’s the start to the weekend! What are your plans over the next couple of day? We’re going to see Harry Potter in Concert tomorrow! To say I’m excited is an understatement!!!

#ad A sight that literally took my breath away. Wild flower fields that look out onto the most incredible view of my hometown city of Liverpool ❤️. Can you spot the Liver Birds? 👀. I love discovering new places, and recently when I got to test out @VodafoneUK's Unlimited Data plan that became a whole lot easier. With no data or WiFi worries, the city was my oyster 😍. Just when you think you know all the good spots you find out you don't 😍 #BeUnlimited

Whitby Abbey, one of the most stunning places I have ever visited. I photographed this architectural wonder from every possible angle. I layed in the ancient grass just taking in it's beauty and history. One of the happiest photography and personal experiences in my life so far. . .

LOCATION, LOCATION #myhousethismonth #mygardenthismonth day 7 🚨 Shameless Wakefield appreciation post 🚨 We love where we live. Our house faces onto a busy main road in Wakefield, and it’s the only reason we could afford it. When we’re in this garden though, you’d have no idea - it’s easy to switch off to the sound of traffic and imagine we’re in the middle of the countryside. Wrongly, in our opinion, Wakefield gets a bit of a bad rap. But honestly, it’s a brilliant place to live. In our neighbourhood, we’re an easy stroll into town, which has some great bars and restaurants, but we can also strap on our walking boots or jump on our bikes and be in beautiful rural surrounds in minutes. The cultural scene in Wakey is amazing. We’re about a 15-minute walk from the Hepworth gallery, named after internationally acclaimed, Wakefield-born sculptor Barbara Hepworth (Henry Moore was also born just up the road in nearby Castleford) and the stupendous Yorkshire Sculpture Park is just a short drive away. If you’ve never been before, get it onto your to-do list. It’s a truly special place. As if that wasn’t enough, we also live a stone’s throw away from Sandal Castle, which played a key role in the War of the Roses (the song “The Grand Old Duke of York” was written about the Battle of Wakefield, which took place there). In terms of location, we can’t imagine a better place to live! Yay Wakey! 😍 #urbancottage #yorkshirehome #wonderfulwakey #cottagegarden #periodhome #myperiodhomestyle #yorkshiregarden #georgianhome #listedbuilding #oldhouselove #gardensofinstagram #gardeninspiration #dahlias #dahliaseason #englishgarden #itsprimupnorth

Talking about love.... one of the best things about travelling is actually coming back home and realising how much in love you are with where you live. Walking around the nearby village admiring the beautiful stone in the Spring sunshine makes me my heart so grateful and appreciative. #derbyshiredales #lovemyhood
