About Me

Hey there. I’m Lydie, and you just commenced your good deed of the day by stopping by!

My ‘About Me’ page should hopefully give you more insight into who I am as a person, my personal interests and why I started blogging.

-I currently live in Birmingham, United Kingdom.

-I’m married to the man I’ve now turned into my photographer 😉 Mathew Paul Warke. He’s the B.E.S.T.
