'Why doesn't Derby have a Christmas market?' is something that I ask myself every year.

I'd be lying if I didn't admit to being one of those annoying people that LOVES a Christmas market from the off. So, it's a shame that there isn't a Christmas market in Derby for this Xmas-loving-lass, isn't it? In this post, I'll be sharing two of the best that I've found *just* outside the county.

There's something quite Grinch-like about me until I'm dragged (hardly kicking and screaming, admittedly) to one of these markets. After that, I'm a fully-fledged-festive-fangirl...

It's been a tough week for parts of Derbyshire, particularly Matlock. As a Belper girl, I thought I'd share some images of the aftermath of the flooding in my hometown.

These images were taken on the Saturday (9th November), the day after the flooding hit. As you can see, the water levels had subsided enough for Bridge Foot to be reopened and for the River Gardens to be generally accessible too.

Lyme Park might just be over the border in Cheshire, but I hadn't actually been until last month.

If you've never heard of it before, it's where Colin Firth got drenched in that lake... Lyme Park was actually home to Mr. Darcy in the BBC 1995 adaptation of Pride and Prejudice.

Shamefully, I'd never been to the theatre in lovely Sheffield, despite it only being a stone's throw away from Derbyshire. I rectified that recently by venturing up the M1 to catch Educating Rita at the Lyceum Theatre during its 2019 UK tour.

I love a good trip to Castleton, so I thought I'd share some photos from a jaunt to the pretty Peak District village a couple of weeks ago. (I'm aware that it's probably overkill considering that I've already written two posts about that trip over on Katie Writes, but it is a Derbyshire Delight, isn't it? So I couldn't neglect to mention it over here too!)

Who'd have thought that Meadowhall would have an independent coffee shop? Meet Coffika... Which is just that: An independent coffee shop nestled in a bustling shopping centre.

As an Italian food fiend, I love a good trip to ASK Italian. I've ventured to the branch that sits on the Market Place in Derby many times over the years.

And even though this meal was quite a while ago, I was reminded of it recently, and I couldn't resist sharing it with you. It was that good.

BEAR in Derby has been on my 'must visit' list for ages. The cafe opened up on Iron Gate in December 2017, and I've been meaning to go and try their coffee out ever since.

I bloomin' love a trip up to Alport, if we're being honest. I wouldn't have already written about it a couple of times over on Katie Writes if I didn't. So, I thought I'd share this wonderful Derbyshire Delight with you too, in case you didn't already know about it.

Being a Belper girl through-and-through means I'm a bit biased, but if I told you that Belper has a lovely selection of independent cafes, tea rooms and restaurants, you'd be hard pushed to argue with me. Gillivon Tea Rooms is the newest to the bunch, only opening last year.

A few months ago, I ventured to the lovely city of Manchester to go on the Corrie Tour.

Hello! Or should I say eh up?

It's been quite a while, hasn't it? A lot longer than I anticipated, certainly.
