If you’re a townie, you can probably smell the difference between your local coffee shops or smell the fresh sea air from your front door but when you’re a country girl and you live in the countryside, you learn to differentiate the smells of which manure the local farmers are spreading on their fields (Pig poo is the worst!) and you think going to a country fair is the highlight of your weekend.

If anyone ever asks for somewhere to get some cheap but good quality food in San Francisco, Lefty O’Douls is our first tip!
This has a bit of cult status amongst us and our friends as we first visited on our honeymoon 10yr ago and have raved about it ever since.

I’m still in that post holiday zen chilled out bubble as 3 weeks out of the office with minimal online time and no stress was just what I needed.

I have compiled my top picks….. my shopping basket is bulging!
