I'm Ruth. I am married to Luke, my very artistic husband. We live in the amazing community of East Bowling, Bradford, West Yorkshire.
Currently I work as an Optometrist, but love travelling and cooking, which are the main themes of this blog.
Every week I blog a recipe which I have made, adapted or created on my FOODY FRIDAY posts.
You can read lots about my adventures in New Zealand, as well as my adventures in Brazil, Malawi, Egypt, & the Isles of Scilly.
I also love photography, researching my family history and playing the clarinet and piano.
