Thanks for taking the time out to look at my blog. My name is Tara, I am a Mum to a 14 year old daughter (although she is more mature than me!). I am based in Bournemouth, UK, but spend most of my weekends trying to get away.

I work my butt off during the week in an office job, which is quite stressful. At the end of the day I love to escape by taking my dog, Betty out for long walks down the beach.
