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…

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…

What’s happening to the NHS dentists in Kent?

Sam visited his dentist last week for a check up and was told that his surgery and it’s sister surgery was closing in a Ramsgate, leaving 16k patients desperately trying to find a new one. Hundreds of people have expressed their concern over finding a new dentist in posts I’ve seen shared online as Sam’s…

We’re going to Isleworth on Friday

We are going to Isleworth this weekend and I really can’t wait. Although I saw my mum a few weeks ago for Emily’s first birthday in London for lunch, it was only brief for a few hours and not long enough. It was be great to catch up with my niece, sister, grandparents, mum and…

Twenty years is a really long time… 

So, today is my dads anniversary. But not just any anniversary, it’s a huge anniversary. Twenty years in fact. Whilst the papers are filled with more and more reports revealing the truth about Princess Diana (yeah it happened in the same month of 1997), I’m struggling to think how on earth twenty years of my…

Review: Strawberry Fields Cafe, Birchington 

With the weather playing around a lot recently, trying to find somewhere to meet up with friends and young children out and about is difficult. If it’s too windy, going to Ramsgate town is a definite no-no as the winds can sometimes be a nightmare right by the Harbour, and there’s always Westwood Cross for…

Sandwich, Kent, we’ll definitely be coming back 

Last month, Sam, Emily and I went to Sandwich for the day and it was wonderful. We’ve talked about going for months but it was never feasible before being pregnant, so now that Emily can sit up or lie in a pram, it’s easier to do the things in Kent we want to do. Sandwich is…

Emily’s first trip to Isleworth and it’s changed so much…

There was a lot of excitement a couple of weeks ago when we visited my family in Isleworth, South West London, 108.7 miles away from home in Ramsgate, Kent. We didn’t tell friends, it wasn’t anything personal it was just that we had so much planned with my family that trying to make plans to…
