MONK BRETTON PRIORY (EXPLORING & FINDING TREASURES)

AFTER a week of being housebound with germs, getting outside at the weekend was a must. A chance to blow off some cobwebs. A chance to visit somewhere we’ve never been. (Even though it’s practically right on our doorstep.) After a relaxing Saturday morning watching films (and crying at the beginning of UP!) we ventured out to Monk Bretton Priory – a ruined medieval priory, less than 10 mins away

WHEN I was 18 years old, I was broken. Same applies for when I was 19 too. On the cusp of adulthood, at a time when life should have seemed full of opportunity, excitement and happiness, I was in the darkest pit of despair I have ever crawled into. Broken. Shattered. Basically ripped apart. From the outside most people would never have guessed my inner turmoil and misery. I looked
