Cheshire Feels Like California

The Lovely Weather in Cheshire

I was telling a friend the other day, how crazy this whole weather thing is. I would never have predicted the warm weather we are currently experiencing. Cheshire feels like California. The weather has been dead warm for weeks now which is very usual for us here in Cheshire. And it has been pretty warm in most parts of the UK. We usually have a very short summer, much later in the year. But this year, we skipped spring altogether, and dived right into the warm weather.

I like the weather to a certain extent. It feels great to not hear the corny jokes about how horrible the British weather. They get boring sometimes. It also feels great to be able to style our summer pieces.

We have been making the most of the lovely sunshine as much as possible. Our summer wardrobes are looking good. We are enjoying the fact that we can wear less and lighter clothes. The kids have worn shorts all week, and we always have our sun cream with us for protection. How is the weather where you are?

Bring on the Weekend

The weekend is almost here and I am seriously looking forward to it. I am looking forward to it so much that I have been busy reading a book with funny weekend quotes and Saturday quotes to get me even more in the mood. My Hay Fever has been a lot better this week thanks to changes in my lifestyle. I have been implementing the Hay Fever Tips I shared on the blog some weeks ago, and my overall health has improved. I hope it keeps improving. Hay Fever is one of the most uncomfortable illness to have.

This week has been very busy and it has been hard being on top of everything thanks to the half term holiday we enjoyed the last week. We spent the holiday in Chelmsford, Essex; and we had a terrific time with the family. We didn’t want the holiday to come to an end. Which is always the case when we get together with the crew. How was your half term week? Do you have any weekend plans?

Hired: Six Months Undercover in Low-Wage Britain

I have been reading Hired: Six Months Undercover in Low-Wage Britain by James Bloodworth and it is quite an interesting read. It is all about the author going undercover to work in many companies to discover what life is really like for the workers. I found the book informing, enlightening and very disturbing. It is shocking to see how big corporations treat their staff. And how many people live from hand to mouth. Reading this book has made me even more grateful for even the little things. I hear about how many people struggle to survive on low-income jobs, with many on zero contract jobs in London and I find it worrying. It is a book worth reading for sure. 

Reading  Hired: Six Months Undercover in Low-Wage Britain also brought back memories of some of the previous jobs I had. I once worked in a call centre in Bristol whilst studying for my masters in International Human Resources at the University of the West of England (UWE). I had a zero hours contract with the company. But the good thing then was I wasn’t bothered. I had enough money to survive at uni, the money from job was just extra money to shop with. But that isn’t the case with many others. Many people solely relied on the income to survive and having a zero hours contract meant work was never guaranteed. 

I still remember how many times I would be booked to come into work, only to get a call an hour or 2 before to be told I was no longer needed for the day. It was my first job in the UK, and this was around the year 2008/2009. It was quite experience, and I would never forget it.

Good all that is now a distant memory and this is now my reality. When I remember where I am coming from, I am thankful, and it makes me work even harder. I am looking to keep doing what I do and improve in what needs improvement. My plan is to work on my blog SEO and draw in even more traffic. I found an SEO services London company, and I am seriously considering having them on board.

How do you attract more blog traffic? Please share your tips. Have you ever visited Cheshire? What do you think of the county in general?
