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…

Autumn is here and I love it

Now that November is here the mornings and nights are darker, the days colder and the floor littered with leaves, autumn is well and truly here. Amongst it all, the Sky daily has been beautiful. Looking out across the field near our house, we can see the stunning colours filling the sky as the sun…

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…

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…

Newington Rocks, literally!

For the last few years I’ve heard great things about this family event, from friends, neighbours, people on Facebook and…

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…

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…

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…

I Want To Make Swimming More Of Emily’s Life

After a slight disappointing start with swimming for Emily earlier on thanks to the temperature at the pool where the classes were in the early stages of her little life, I’m still not giving up on my little water baby. Emily loves the bath. It’s almost, if not probably, the best time of day for…
