This weekend Billy and I had a day out to White Scar Cave in Ingleborough, North Yorkshire. As a Christmas present to Billy I created a year of fun, which has consisted of me planning a day out/activity/event etc. to do together once a month for the next year... Well this was January's treat! If you're looking for a day out in Yorkshire and a great place to eat afterwards, read on!
Kirkgate Market is hands down the number one reason I love living in Leeds, so it's only fair that my first post of the year is about just that. I'm lucky enough to work only a couple of minutes walk from the market meaning that I can shop there on my lunch breaks, and this has very much influenced the way that I shop and cook: buying little and often and deciding what to have for tea based on what's available on the day. And when I'm not shopping in the market, I'm talking about the market and telling everyone else to shop there.

After spending a few festive days with my family in Buckinghamshire, I took the opportunity to spend the day being a tourist in London on my way back up to Leeds. With so much to see and do in this wonderful (and somewhat overwhelming) city, the hardest part was actually planning the day and, of course, where to have lunch!
My annual leave is usually spent on adventures abroad, but sometimes it's important to take time off work just to relax! I've spent the last couple of days doing exactly that with two of my best friends. So, how do three girls who haven't seen each other in a while and just want to have a good old natter spend 36 hours in the wonderful city of Leeds? Here's what we got up to, feel free to steal ideas for the next time you're at a loose end!
All I knew about wrestling was that it's choreographed (which I thought meant fake) and that men wearing lycra had to throw each other around a ring and pin their opponent to the floor for 3 seconds to win. It turns out there's so much more to it, and actually it's a really fun night out that I would highly recommend! Here's my beginners guide to Underground Pro Wrestling for those who want an unusual night out in Leeds and want to know what to expect.
A couple of weeks ago my parents visited me in Leeds for the weekend. This usually consists of lots of eating and drinking, but also a day out exploring Yorkshire. After thinking long and hard about where to take them, I eventually suggested getting the Keighley & Worth Valley Railway steam train from Keighley to Haworth. We would wander cobbled streets, visit the Brontë museum and enjoy the Yorkshire countryside.
Welcome to Adventures with Nell and my first EVER blog post. I’m finally taking the plunge after wanting to start this blog for a very long time (we’re talking years), and to be honest with you I’m pretty terrified! So I’ll start with a little about me to get into the swing of things.
