Hi, I’m Lisa Valentine, she/her. I’m in my late-thirties and live near Manchester, England, with my husband, two grown-up daughters and our three rescue cats.
This blog, formerly That British Betty, has been my creative outlet since 2014. It’s a ‘Dear Diary’ lifestyle site and a way for me to document the adventures so far. This ranges from our many trips across the UK, recipes, general life updates, British living, sustainable and budget fashion finds and foodie reviews to honest conversations and opinion pieces.
As for me? My life has been a wild ride so far and, given that I’m an oversharer who likes to ramble a lot, you’ll find snippets of my own personal, raw experiences peppered throughout my sporadic posts. I’m a born and bred Northerner and cat lady who grew up reading way past my bedtime. I evolved into a home bird with mediocre baking skills and a love of rockabilly, live music, tattoos, plants, retro gaming and befriending strangers – including my now-husband – on the internet.
