I still haven’t worked out who I want to be or what I want to do when I grow up, so on this blog please join me while I try and work it out while keeping child-like creativity alive!  Find home and fashion inspiration; travel and days out; photography, writing and more. Have fun looking around 🙂

Pilsden Pen

An Iron Age hillfort near Bridport in Dorset

Despite being on the big road map, this place was really hard to find and I’d recommend you borrow an ordnance survey if you don’t know the area. But don’t even bother with young children or walking disabilites. We parked in a small layby, then we crossed the road, clambered over a style and climbed up an incredibly steep hill to get to the top. Honestly, if I was in a warring tribe or a Roman, I’d get half way up and then turn round and go home again. I’m pretty sure there was a plaque at the top that said this was the highest point in Dorset. Don’t let this put you off though, my 7 year old managed it without too much complaining!

But it is so worth it! You can see for miles and miles around in all directions. Typically it was a misty cloudy day when went (!) but we could still see a decent view. It was the perfect spot for some kite flying. Though if I’m honest, virtually every one we went to was the perfect spot for kite flying!

There were double banks and ditches, from what I could make out and a massive flat enclosure at the top; so wide that this was about the only one we didn’t bother walking right the way accross. If you enjoy hill walking and breathtaking views, then this is the place for you.

This is the question I’ve often pondered, but until you fork out the money to upgrade, you’re not going to know are you? Last year I flew three times to America accompanying Chris on work trips and the company has kindly paid for our return journeys to be Premium Economy. It was so exciting that first time! We all have wildly varying opinions as to what we spend our money on and what we save it on, but if you’re not sure if it’s worth paying extra to fly premium economy, then hopefully this will help….
