The annual clear the freezer ready for Christmas Day

Christmas is just a few weeks away, we’ve just bought the decorations for the house and the Christmas tree, I’ve done all of my Christmas shopping, so now what’s left is prepping my cupboards, fridge and freezer for Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and Boxing Day. I do a few clear outs throughout the year but…

We ate in Travelodge in Bristol’s Patchway and it was horrible.

We were up in Bristol in August visiting Sam’s brother and family. We had thought about trying to see the hot air balloon festival but unfortunately the weather was terrible and that never happened. Instead we spent time chilling out with family and it was good fun, Emily loved hanging out with her cousins too….

I’m having a bit of a clear out before Christmas

How crazy to think that in a few short weeks it will officially be December and then the countdown to Christmas begins. Seriously, where has this year gone? It’s flown by! It’s mad to think that in a few weeks Emily will turn 2 too. As Christmas approaches, to get ready for the first Christmas…

My mum came to visit in September, it always flies by so quickly!

It’s always nice when family come to visit us down here in Ramsgate. It’s also really nice when my mum comes down too. Mum loves Ramsgate, she’s transfixed by the beauty of the Royal harbour and our magnificent golden sandy beach too. Her and her partner Leon love exploring the various towns and areas around…

Im a Celeb is coming back and I’m not happy this year.

It’s the only reality program I show an inch of interest towards. Every year celebs or past-their-sale-date celebs are thrown into the jungle together and put through gross and terrifying tests to see how far they’d go for their pay packet and to be made king or queen of the mighty Australian jungle. It’s not…

We ate at Cafe Rouge for my birthday and I still love it 28 years on.

Cafe Rouge is one of my favourite restaurants, ever. As a child my dad used to take my sister and I to the Richmond restaurant where breakfast, lunch or dinner was a favourite time spent there. The smell of freshly roasted coffee, fresh squeezed orange juice, baked croissants, sugar cubes in little white bowls, chic…

Great benefits available at the little bears club at Westwood Cross

Going shopping with children whatever the kind is rarely a fun day out, unless they’re small, like really really small. So when I go to Westwood Cross in Broadstairs, it’s a rarity because Emily isn’t interested in sitting in a pram whilst I browse the aisle in each and every shop, and why should she?…

I’m addicted to Killing Eve

Ok, let’s just recap I’m not actually killing someone called Eve, but the fabulous BBC drama “Killing Eve,” is amazing. Originally this post was to mention how bloody (literally) amazing it is whilst I binge watched it, but I binged watched it in a few days and I can safely say, if the rumours are…

I’m in London

The sun is shining, the weather an absolute stunner, which is a far cry from the horrible wind storm we had last week, it’s deliciously beautiful and whilst I sat waiting for a meeting in Twickenham this morning, looking out onto Richmond and St Margaret’s I count my lucky stars just how fortunate I was…

Our trip to Bristol

It’s taken me ages to write this post but it’s not because I forgot, it was trying to find the time, I seem to have very little of time these days. A couple of months back, Sam, Emily and I went up to visit Sam’s brother and family for a long weekend. We had a…
