Meet Annatha. She loves cats, tea and the countryside. You can see instantly why she’s my kind of gal. Hailing from Cumbria, her pictures of landscapes make me pine after tumbling hills and soaring skies. What’s more, she’s also a keen adventurer and baker.
Sometimes I wish finding kindred spirits was as easy in real life as it is in the blogosphere. That’s not to say that they’re not there if you look for them but it does mean you’re unlikely to meet them face to face.
In the meantime, I suppose the best we can do is be pen pals and exchange my urban for her rural tales.
Let’s share a little more about Annatha…
I'm originally from Rotherham, but I moved to Cumbria for my degree back in 2008. I fell in and out of love with the place but eventually returned at the beginning of 2013 to start a new adventure in the Cumbrian countryside. I could harp on about how much I love living up here until the cows came home- life in the middle of nowhere is completely different to what I was used to, but for me it's perfect. The views are stunning, the air is fresh and it's so quiet outside. When my head is full I can grab my dog, step outside my front door and wander down to the river for a paddle (not advisable at this time of year, mind).
When did you start your blog and why?
I started blogging half-heartedly towards the end of 2012. I'd been reading a couple of lifestyle blogs and wanted to have a go myself, but I didn't really know where I was going and gave up after a couple of posts. I decided to have another go in January 2013 as a way of documenting my adventures up in Cumbria. Nowadays, I blog because it makes me happy. It allows me to focus on the little things going on that make me smile, and to share my stories with other like minded people.
