Something has been brought to my attention recently, and I'm not really sure how to approach the subject.
This summer, my family and I went on holiday to Falmouth in Cornwall.

Earlier this week, my family and I took a short trip to Bath Spa for a couple of days. We stayed in a lovely B&B called Trimnells for the night and explored the city the following day.

If you’re anything like I was, the prospect of moving out for the first time is, to say the least, daunting.
