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?…

The Windmill in Ramsgate has upped their menu and its gooooood

I’ve written about The Windmill a number of times, I’ve chosen it on numerous occasions as the venue for most events such as Sam’s 40th, Emily’s 1st, Emily’s Christening and a wake. It’s a lovely family friendly pub, with lovely staff, friendly locals, a good selection of food and drink, both hot & cold and…

What are you doing this summer with your kids?

With the recent temperatures heating up the country making a plan for the summer holidays with Emily has been difficult. Ok so technically it’s not summer holidays for us as I work from home but it’s still the summer. What have we got in store for Emily? Well we’re going to Bristol to visit family,…

We visited Jungle Jim’s again and this time had mixed feelings

Emily and I have only been to Jungle Jim’s on two occasions including our last visit. The last time was last year with Clare and her daughter Scarlet where we visited the inside soft play area for children. Although the soft play area was ok, it wasn’t great for them, as they were restricted to…

A good walk for little legs

A few days ago after a morning meeting, Emily and I met Clare and Scarlet for a few hours. We had decided the day before that we’d walk along Government Acre, letting our little ones run free, then pop by the boating pool for a cuppa, hoping that the long walk would have an affect,…

I love Ramsgate

If you haven’t visited Ramsgate yet, why the heck not? Ramsgate is a beauty and home to the only Royal harbour in the country. To add to that it’s next door to a glorious sandy beach. Honestly it’s gorgeous and you have to check it out. Ok, so the high street isn’t great, but with…

Add meaning to your menu 

Since the beginning of the year I’ve been writing a side blog to this which you may have noticed pop up on the Facebook page and on my twitter feed. I’ve been writing a food blog, sharing with my followers and friends my love and passion for cooking. I have a mix of amazing recipes…

Advice for new mums…

Honestly, I’m probably not the best person to give advice on having a baby and what happens next as I’ve only had one baby, a baby, my baby, little Emily who isn’t so little anymore, but in the eyes of just about most, is very little, but I do think there should be some kind…

Why is everyone hating on Wetherspoons in Ramsgate?

Since Wetherspoons announced they were coming to Ramsgate there has been plenty of views whether this is good or bad. Wetherspoons Ramsgate, you can’t fault it, it really does have something for everyone. Most of the groups on Facebook have someone at least once or twice a day complaining about Wetherspoons in Ramsgate. If it’s…

Muscle Food Review

If you buy the groceries in your house, you’ll know that buying any type of meat is normally quite expensive. It doesn’t matter where you shop, if you have a growing family, buying weekly shopping is expensive. I buy the food in this house and cook too. As you can tell from this blog I’m…

Walking Club in Ramsgate who’s with me?

So a few months ago, a friend and I were thinking of setting up a walking club of some sort. Obviously at the time everything was so weather dependent but now that the sun wants to stay, walking more and enjoying this fine coastline and fresh air seems like a great idea. We had originally…
